After arriving at Water Run, each resident was greeted at the door by their own personal concierge who helped them find their room and start unpacking boxes.
Another team of WRC leaders assisted residents with completing their admission paperwork.

“With the help of our staff of Highland Oaks in Shippenville and volunteers from our Leadership Team, we were able to make a smooth transition for the residents,” said Highland Oaks at Water Run Administrator Faith O’Brien.

With the initial move-in day now complete, the individuals on the priority reservation list have begun moving in and will continue through the next few weeks.
