Did you know that yesterday was National "Sorry Charlie" Day? I am not kidding! We just so happen to have a very special "Charlie" that works for Bickford. The Residents decided to pull a prank on Charlie. They called him into the activity room and told him it was flooded. He came running with the carpet cleaner in tow and then the Residents yelled "Sorry Charlie!" We then showed him some appreciation with his favorite snacks and his favorite lunch, peanut butter and jelly. We love you Charlie!

Love was in the air in a major way here at Bickford of Lancaster today... our awesome Life Enrichment Coordinators made “candy grams” that anyone could purchase and they would be delivered to Resident and BFMs today. They were a major hit! We had an awesome meal of steak, shrimp scampi, loaded baked potatoes, sautéed mushrooms, and homemade strawberry shortcake! We had a romantic setting for our 9 married couples. In the afternoon we were serenaded by a major talented banjo player, Gabe Stout, and then had a chocolate party! It was a great day!
