Family Support

If your loved one is a resident with us, we consider you part of the CelesteCare family! You are always welcome at our facilities.

  • Family Potluck Dinners are held monthly to build a sense of community and increase interaction among our residents and their loved ones.
  • Holiday Celebrations include very special luncheons for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, as well as Thanksgiving Dinner and a festive Christmas party.
  • CelesteSupport Groups meet regularly to give family members an opportunity to share the struggles and successes associated with having seniors who suffer from dementia or progressive physical limitations.
  • CelesteConnect Events are open to the community and provide helpful information and resources related to aging, senior care and health trends.
