Canyonlands Care Center is a community living environment, as a result there can be no guarantee that items could not be lost or go missing. We ask residents and their families to consider these possibilities before bringing items of great monetary or sentimental value. There is a Resident Petty Cash Account available in which each resident has a clearly marked envelope for storing money and other valuables. Please give valuables to the nurse to ensure they are properly stored. One way to reduce the incidence of lost items is to label all of your personal property clearly with your name. Canyonlands Care Center residents’ clothing, shoes, quilts, etc. must be marked prior to admission with permanent marker or a purchased tag sewn in. It is suggested that you bring clothing that can be easily taken on and off, for example pants with elastic waist bands and well-fitting house shoes without laces. Occasionally residents choose to bring personal furniture from home into their new room. This is fine, however it is the responsibility of the resident or their families to maintain or replace personal furniture. Any furniture brought into Canyonlands Care Center must be in proper functioning order.
