The McGuire Group’s Harris Hill Nursing Facility in Lancaster hosted its 25th annual Volunteer Recognition and Awards Luncheon at Santora’s Restaurant. More than 40 volunteers were in attendance including those who offer religious services, provide companionship to the residents, perform music, bake and assist with crafts. Kathy Niemcewicz of Lancaster was recognized as the 2018 Volunteer of the Year.

Ms. Niemcewicz has been volunteering at Harris Hill since 2016. She is a jack-of-all-trades and often assists the activity department with clerical work, creating craft projects for the residents and designing and decorating the facility bulletin boards. She also hand-makes individual birthday cards for the residents which elicit wonderful smiles as they open them. “We’re thankful for Kathy’s kindness, friendship and laughter, which makes the residents feel at home,” stated Jillian Skibinski, activity director.

Harris Hill Nursing Facility provides subacute and outpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing care, Journeys palliative care and respite/short-term care. The facility continuously receives outstanding ratings from the federal government and finished in the first quintile of NY State’s quality benchmarking pool for 5 out of 5 years.
