Horrigan says Co. Home transition to private operation going "smoothly..." as VestraCare administrator officially comes on board...
The next step in what's hoped to be a smooth transition to private ownership of the County Home in Dunkirk has been taken this week.  VestraCare administrator Shannon Cayea-Delker has been named as Nursing Home Administrative Supervisor of Record.  County Executive Vince Horrigan says that means she'll oversee operations... though the current day-to-day administrative team remains intact.  Horrigan says Cayea-Delker joined him for his seventh "town Hall" style meeting this week with the families of current residents.  He says one question to her was "what's the biggest change we'll notice?"  Cayea-Delker says they see more in the way of electronic records, with lap-top computers, and, some sprucing up of the living areas.  Horrigan says she outlined both short... and, longer-term changes that people will see at the Dunkirk-area facility.  He says they'll be doing some additional staff -- including nurses -- shortly... and, will soon be adding new services... such as adult day care... and, cardiac rehabiliation.  He also says Cayea-Delker is beginning to meet more regularily with staff members.  Horrigan made his comments for this weekend's "Community Spotlight" program.
