Grandparents Day is September 12th.  This year we would love for all our grandchildren to send in a hug to their grandparents!  Trace your arms and hands on paper or use a ribbon (get creative) and send through the mail or drop off at the front desk.  A big thank you to all the grandparents in our community! First, thank you for loving us even when we were not always lovable. Thank you for the great advice and wisdom you passed on through the years. Thanks for baking cookies with us and for those special times we got to spend with you. Thanks for hugging us, letting us sit on your lap and listening to all our stories, as well as a sad tale or two. Finally, thank you for sharing your lives with us. You helped us become who we are today. You’ve helped make us better people.

Let’s recognize National Assisted Living and Environmental Services & Housekeeping Week celebrated the 12th-18th! When someone is unable to independently care for himself or herself, an assisted living organization can step in to make that person’s life more comfortable and secure. The people who assist individuals needing care are selfless beings who put their heart and soul into their jobs.  We salute and thank those kind and considerate workers during National Assisted Living Week and always.
