News & Happenings

As home to a diverse group of residents and as a place of rehabilitation for many more members of our community, the M.M. Ewing Continuing Care Center has programs to suit many needs. From support groups, to musical performances, to excursions with members of the Recreational Therapy staff, there is always something going on. Loved ones who live nearby are encouraged to play an active role in the goings-on, and those who live outside of the area are invited to keep up with daily happenings online and through close communication with our staff.

Wish Upon A Star
Sharmon M Pepper Wish Upon a Star Program

Thompson Health Senior Living Services launched its Wish Upon a Star program in the fall of 2010, with the hopes of involving the entire community in enhancing the lives of residents of our skilled-nursing facility and changing the perception of aging.

Residents of the M.M. Ewing Continuing Care Center enter their wishes into dream books. On a quarterly basis, five residents’ wishes are drawn by a “genie” and the committee then sets about making those wishes come true.

A wish might be anything from a hot air balloon ride, to a special dinner with family, to spending a day fishing. Fulfilling the wishes is at times challenging, but always meaningful. We create special memories for the residents and their families, as well as for staff and fellow residents.

Please consider supporting Wish Upon a Star today!

How you can help:

  • Volunteer your time and talent toward making wishes come true
  • Let our “Dreamweaver” know if you have goods, services and/or airline miles to donate
  • Make a financial contribution

For more information, please call the M.M. Ewing Continuing Care Center at 585-396-6040.
