Thank you to our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis, for writing personal notes of prayer and encouragement to our staff. They attached these notes to Fun Size candy bars, which were distributed by our wonderful Activities Team yesterday!

Our hard-working and dedicated staff continues to rise to the occasion and help to keep our residents — and each other — happy, safe, and healthy during these challenging times. Here is a short video spotlighting some of these outstanding individuals:

Our thoughts and prayers are with our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis, during this solemn Holy Week.

An Easter Greeting From Sisters Mary Alice

Holy Week and Easter are faith-testing days of contradiction. Jesus triumphantly enters Jerusalem, but on a beast of burden and following a path blanketed with palms. What other King would choose to enter the Holy City riding a donkey? Jesus washes his disciples’ feet, shares a meal, and institutes the sacraments of the Eucharist and Penance. But Judas silently sneaks away to go and betray Him for 30 coins?

Raised up and nailed to a cross, His side pierced and He was mocked for being able to save others while He could not save Himself. He was told to come down from the cross and they would believe. Jesus absolutely could have saved Himself, didn’t need to suffer any of these indignities, but chose to follow His father’s plan to save us instead. He came out of the tomb, raising Himself from death to life — and only the women who found the empty tomb immediately believed He had risen. Those who mocked Him still refused to believe.

Easter celebrates Christ’s Resurrection, but at the same time reminds us that most miracles come after great suffering — it’s only one great Love that can lead us to the lesson to be learned, the new life, the better space to be in. It’s too bad no one captured pictures of Jesus doing a victory dance in His resurrected version of Himself because my heart believes He did one! (So does Sydney Carter who wrote “The Lord of the Dance”—see below) Our best way to celebrate Easter is to dance a joy-filled victory dance for Him! It can be a dance of smiles, hugs, and words of kindness just as effectively as a dance of the feet!

God Is Risen — and for Heaven’s sake let’s really celebrate it!

I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black;

It’s hard to dance with devil on your back.

They buried my body and they thought I’d gone;

But I am the dance, and I still go on.

They cut me down and I leapt up high,

I am the life that’ll never, never die.

I’ll live in you if you live in me

I am the Lord of the dance, says he.

Dance, then, wherever you may be,

I am the Lord of the dance said he,

And I’ll lead you all, wherever you may be.

And I’ll lead you all in the dance, said he.

The Lord of the Dance

Memory Care Services

The Village at Marymount's Memory Care Unit provides a safe and secure environment for residents with Alzheimer's disease, as well as other forms of dementia. We provide individualized care that enhances each resident's quality of life by maximizing function and minimizing their level of frustration. Life enrichment activities managed by licensed professionals focus on residents' interests as well as their cognition and physical abilities.


Wellness & Rehab Wing

The Don & Pam Washkewicz Wellness & Rehab Wing provides excellence in rehabilitation services. This unit has been uniquely designed to offer intensive rehabilitation in a boutique-like setting. Our comprehensive interdisciplinary approach includes home evaluations prior to discharge, family member training to emphasize safety and continued care at home, and care-plan meetings with our team to review patient goals, progress, accomplishments and to thoroughly discuss discharge plans. Ten (10) large private rooms, a fully functioning kitchen, laundry room and shower room, along with the appropriate rehabilitation equipment right on the unit, add up to a surprisingly comfortable stay. Coupled with intense clinical services and you have the makings for a speedy and successful recovery.


Spiritual, Palliative, and Hospice Care

Pastoral care services are available as a spiritual resource and support system for our patients and their loved ones. Pastoral care team members visit our residents throughout their stay and can be contacted if a special need arises. This is especially comforting to those receiving palliative or hospice care. Additionally, Mass is offered weekdays at 9:30am in Assisi Hall Chapel; Saturdays afternoon in Assisi Hall Chapel and on Sunday mornings in the Clare Hall Chapel.
