“The data clearly tracks with the nationwide effort to prioritize nursing home residents for vaccinations. Case counts began to steeply decline as the Pfizer, and then the Moderna vaccines began to be distributed to nursing homes across the country on December 20, 2020. Nursing home case counts remain low, particularly when compared to infection rates among the general population, which have roared back in recent weeks,” -–McKnight’s Long Term Care News
“Today, new cases in American nursing homes are at their lowest point since May, when the federal government began tracking such data, the New York Times reports. Nursing homes are now among the safest places to be.”

CARE – COMPASSION – COMFORT
Welcome to the Green House Cottages of Southern Hills, located in the heart of Rison, Arkansas! Our cottages
We recognize the importance of performing our jobs with compassion. Our elders often come to us during difficult and challenging times in their lives and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. In fact, they become part of the family.
Finally, we provide comfort – physically, emotionally and spiritually – in a home-like setting for an enriched experience that improves the overall quality of life and promotes optimal healing.
Individually trained restorative aides continue various therapies once the licensed therapist has completed care for the elder. Through restorative care, our staff assists elders in maintaining and improving his or her total welfare as well as reaching and maintaining his or her highest level of functioning independence.
The elders really do feel like the other elders are their family. They worry when they are sick, they try and cheer them up when they are sad, and they rejoice with them when they are happy.”
I love working at The Green House Cottages of Southern Hills! I look forward to coming to work every morning and seeing the smiles on the elders’ faces. It’s like having extra grandparents around. We are all a family here. We all have a very special bond with our elders. I believe in everything we are doing to support culture change, so much so, that I brought my own grandmother here. I get to see her every day when I work, and I know when I’m not there, all her needs are met. Our team is so caring, that I know she is never without anything but the best. She is doing better here than she has in the past couple of years before she came. This place brings happiness to our elders, and they thrive here. It is a beautiful thing to be a part of.
