Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We employ professional staff to offer services specifically tailored to provide for each sister's needs. This is done through a defined initial assessment process including input from the primary physician, health care coordinator, care management, activities, pastoral care. Individual and group meetings with residents as well as staff planning meetings are ongoing in order to adjust to changing needs and preferences of residents. Management maintains an open-door policy and sisters are free to bring concerns or ideas to any staff member.
The Pastoral Care Coordinator creates programs/experiences to enhance personal and communal prayer within the Marian Woods community and, on a limited basis, with others outside Marian Woods. For example, neighbors were invited to a six session study group of Laudato Si and weekly centering prayer led by one of our residents. One to one sessions with residents, retreat days, an annual week-long retreat, presenters/DVDs are scheduled on current topics in ministry, prayer, and world issues. Our activity coordinator plans events, trips, entertainment and service opportunities for the residents. These range from yoga to shopping, to preparing bagged meals once a month for a midnight run to the homeless in New Your City.
Some residents take part in Days for Girls International, an organization recognized by the United Nations and once the residents are proficient with the process, the neighboring high school will be invited to join in the sessions. Residents also are pen pals with at risk students from a New York City school and the same children are hosted each spring for a day at MW. Each sister picks the name of a firefighter in the Hartsdale Fire Department for whom she promises to pray. This has been a wonderful experience; the firefighters plan to bring in supper one night to share with the sisters. This year the sisters held a Christmas Sale with proceeds going to the Hartsdale Fire Dept. and the Greenburg Police/EMT Dept. in gratitude for their service to MW.
We perform an annual formal written evaluation of employees to ensure that each is working within the mission of the facility. Oversight is provided by the Board Committees to include: Events Planning, Development, Quality Assurance, Financial Planning, Building and Grounds and Mission and Governance.

Our staff has initiated contacts with outside groups to provide stimulating opportunities for the Sisters. The services of Marian Woods impact several other religious communities in that residential care is provided to their members as well.
Each religious community having a resident or residents at Marian Woods partners with our staff to closely monitor each resident sister's health and well-being.
Marian Woods ensures that our services are provided by trained, licensed and credentialed staff. The skills and gifts of the well-educated residents themselves are called upon to offer enrichment activities to the entire Marian Woods community and our surrounding outside communities.
Our residents belong to much larger congregations that also help our work by providing financial, artistic, educational and spiritual support with little impact on the limited budget of Marian Woods.

As described in #4, Marian Woods has applied to become an Enhanced Assisted Living Residence in response to a need for increased care and comfort and respecting our goal of holistic living. In preparation for the EALR status, a new emergency call system has been installed throughout the house. The new system includes two additional pull cords in each bedroom and new telephones in all offices and resident rooms.

Marian Woods has over 100 Ptacs (individual heating and cooling units). These units are controlled by the residents in their rooms to meet individual needs for comfort. After 17 years of use, the Ptacs are coming to the end of their useful life. In an effort to be proactive, grants have been written, and Ptacs have begun to be replaced with units that have wall thermostats. The new units will enable each resident to choose a constant temperature for her room without having to adjust the unit due to outside temperatures.
Marian Woods has had consistently successful surveys with New York State Board of Health.
Two short term goals that are being worked on at Marian Woods are plans to initiate a volunteer program for the purpose of visiting with residents, sharing gifts and skills of the neighboring community and assisting with trips outside Marian Woods. In addition, we are working on initiating an exercise program as part of our commitment to holistic care and fundraising to replace a van whose suspension does not provide a level of comfort for residents having physical handicaps.
All these efforts are directed at providing a "Resident-Centered" Quality of Life, maximizing Dignity, Self-Determination, and Quality of Care. The feedback on our progress comes directly from those we serve. The high degree of resident satisfaction and clinical outcomes are the hallmark of Marian Woods.
