Cedar Creek celebrates! It's done!
By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer
After almost a year of demolition and re-construction, Cedar Creek Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Bandera celebrated with a big picnic in City Park and an open house with tours of the fully refurbished facility.
The center, which began at 159 Montague in 1965 as a privately owned nursing home called Purple Hills, was purchased by Creative Solutions in Healthcare, which owns numerous care facilities throughout Texas. Administrator Auston Clanton has headed up the massive physical re-design and instituted new operating procedures.
The free barbecue lunch served up by the company's food services staff at a pavilion in City Park drew a huge crowd who enjoyed the food, live broadcasting and music from The Ranch Radio, KRNH, and more. Happy children swarmed on the playground equipment, bounced in the bouncy house and got a pony ride.
Hardworking staffers and administrators didn't pause to rest on their laurels, as they scheduled an open house at the facility on Thursday so everyone could get a tour and see the changes for themselves.
"We have 60 licensed beds and 55 employees," said Admissions Coordinator Kathleen Cosper. "We give our residents a lot of one-on-one attention."
Activity Director Rosa Lopez keeps the residents busy with daily activities that run the gamut from movie night with fresh popcorn and book clubs, to road trips, which might even take place on a wagon!
Cedar Creek offers both long and short term care, with skilled nursing care 24/7. Therapy services include physical, occupational and speech therapy.
With a fresh new appearance both outside and in, Cedar Creek looks ready to provide another 50 years of loving professional service to the people of Bandera County.
