Veterans Day

 San Carlos Elms would like to thank Kindred Hospice, San Carlos Boy Scout Troop 321 and San Carlos Pack 65 for making this a Veterans Day we will always remember. 

Thank you also to the American Legion Auxiliary for donating poppies for us to have for our Residents.

Due to social distancing we were creative this Veterans Day.

Dawn from Kindred Hospice had a beautiful ceremony for our Residents yesterday. She brought each of our Residents whom served a certificate, a poem written by presenter from Air Force Veteran, Service Officer Honor Guard and American Legion Chaplin from Santa Clara Sunny Dosanjh and a pin to honor each service member.

Boy Scout Troop 321 and Pack 65 presented the colors this morning out in front of The Elms. We all said the Pledge of Allegiance, Luke played the National Anthem on his saxophone and Kyle played taps on his bugle. The Troop then retired their colors and waved at The Elms.

Please take the time to enjoy some moments caught on camera.


Some families asked to be apart of the ceremony too.

Happy Veterans Day!

Thank You Volunteer Pen Pals

 Our Residents have been enjoying your many letters sent to them during this time. We miss seeing our volunteers, but we love hearing what they are doing. 

Thank you to One Life Counseling, Young Men's Service League, Arbor Bay School, St. Charles School and Letters of Hope for taking the time to spread some words of encouragement and hope to all of our Residents.

 We all look forward to the next round of letters. Some of our residents are having fun writing back to our wonderful volunteers. 

To all of our fantastic volunteers Thank You for your hard work and dedication. We miss seeing you all and hope we will see you again soon. Take Care and Stay Safe!
