Congrats to The Good Shepherd Life Enrichment Director Terry McQuillen on receiving Ashland Source's Solution Seeker award for her role in developing our As You Wish program!

LSS Lutheran Village went to Kingwood Center Gardens, where one of our residents worked for 34 years. Martha loved her job as a housekeeper and the history of the mansion.

I'm glad to see Grandma Sloan went! I have a framed picture in my living room of her, me, and my kids at Kingwood in 2007!

Wow I wonder if she did the white glove test to see if they are keeping up like she did! Great outing.

What a wonderful, thoughtful trip!

Love this ❤️
