The Board of Directors of Los Alamos Retirement Community (LARC) is inviting new members and membership renewals.
Although the LARC Board had planned its first, in-person members meeting since pandemic closures, it determined that health threats associated with the ongoing COVID Omicron variant precludes holding this event.
“We expect that by 2023 the virus will be subdued so that we can once again meet in person to share one another’s company,” the board said.
Through the time of the closure and continuing since the reopening in June 2021, LARC provides a hometown opportunity for assisted living and nursing home care. Its mission is to exceed the expectations of its customers by providing services that surpass the standard. Read the LARC Update Letter to learn about some of the heroic efforts of committed LARC staff and management that ensured life-sustaining care for residents.
As a local nonprofit, LARC is community-developed and operated with community leadership and input. The LARC Board is committed to sustaining that vision through interaction with Los Alamos Medical Center, Los Alamos Senior Center, Visiting Nurses, and with families in Los Alamos and Northern New Mexico. To these ends, the Board directs the Heritage Management Company to ensure that the care of patients and residents is its central focus.
“We are grateful for the support of so many people who have helped us maintain so many needed services through the years. As we approach our annual membership drive, we encourage you to continue your support of LARC by renewing or upgrading your membership, asking friends to join, or by becoming new members,” the Board said.
LARC’s membership year runs Sept. 1 of the current year to Aug. 31 of the next year. A renewed membership now is for the 2022–2023 year. Membership in LARC allows members to vote at the annual meeting (usually in September) and at any special meetings that the Board President may call. A Family Membership covers two voting members. More importantly, this contribution demonstrates community support that is needed for seeking grants and other financial support.
“Together we can continue to provide and improve the care we provide to our families and neighbors,” the Board said.
LARC is grateful for the community’s continued support of LARC with memberships and donations. LARC is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation. Membership dues and donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
Anyone interested in serving on the LARC Board is asked to contact one of the Board members.
