Health Advisory Committee
Our Health Advisory Committee explores health issues impacting The Quadrangle’s residents. It also helps educate our community about a broad range of health topics, including upcoming vaccinations and health screenings.
Don Oken is the Chair.
The Healthcare Volunteers provide assistance and support to residents in Skilled Nursing, Personal Care and Special Care in our Oak and Holly buildings through visits and one-on-one interaction.
Oak Advocates Committee
The Oak Advocates Committee members are residents from social work, counseling, education or related backgrounds. Members receive referrals from, and work cooperatively with the personal care social worker. Members also provide general monitoring of the Health Center and respond to questions and concerns of its patients.
Harriet Ball, Joan May and Carol Roberts are Co-Chairs.
Low Vision Support Group
Our Low Vision Group meets once a month, usually with a speaker in which low vision residents participate. We discuss the latest findings in eye health so we can have better conversations with our eye doctors. A look at the monthly activity with low-vision concerns reveals nearly 20 special interest groups including current events, lectures, concerts, movies, classical music listening and discussion and choral singing. There are also fine art, ceramic and jewelry making classes – geared to our special needs.
Lee Sharpe and Jack Nachmias are Co-Chairs.
