St. Martin’s in the Pines hosted a celebration to honor Veterans and the grand opening of a third Cottage on November 11, 2012.
The Cottages represent a new direction in the care of elders requiring skilled nursing. Terry Rogers, St. Martin’s President and CEO, remarked, “It occurs to me that on this day, as we celebrate those who defend our freedom; who have given so much to protect our lives and the way we live, it’s fitting to also remember the way many Veterans and elders have been treated and cared for in the twilight of their lives has been less than honorable. The Cottages represent a new way forward, a revolution from institutional care to care in a home. Our hope is that one day, all elders who need assistance can receive care in a place they can call home, like The Cottages at St. Martin’s.”
