Happy Ash Wednesday! If you visit the branch today, you might see a few of us with dirty foreheads. Growing up, I attended Catholic School, so Ash Wednesday services were held during the school day. After receiving our ashes, we anxiously compared who had more, who's cross was bigger, or who could manage to keep it on all day without inadvertently wiping it off. Walking home after school past the public school we got quite the stare down, and it never failed, at least one person would mention we had something on our foreheads. So when I walked in to the Iowa City Branch today, I couldn't resist telling a few they had something on THEIR forehead as I stared back at them with the same black smudge smeared across mine. Bickford encourages our residents to engage in their faith, whether it be in church, a synagogue, or through meditation. We will happily reserve space for your own minister to come in, and we have nondenominational services with our partnership with Market Place Ministries. Please join us, we would love to pray with you!

Everyone is affected by the cold, Iowa weather that the winter season brings each year. However, for seniors, this time can present many winter challenges and hazards. With decreased sunlight or some may call "the winter blues" comes decreased energy and mood. It may sound easy to say, "Go get some fresh air!" or "open the curtain and let some sunlight come through!" but for those who are not able to leave the home or struggle to, such as seniors, that isn't very easy to do. Try to keep curtains and blinds open at all times to let some sunlight through. Seniors should avoid driving when road conditions are at their worst, and those who do drive should be prepared for the conditions. At Bickford, we can provide that transportation to and from doctors appointments by our bus or by our certified caregivers that have their chauffeur license. Whatever it takes to get your loved one to their destination safely!

When someone says "annual Meeting" they might imagine an uncomfortable room with charts and graphs, where attendees are slumped in their chair and un-engaged. But Bickford gives that term a whole new meaning! Because we treat everyone like family, we call our annual meeting, Family Reunion, and it is everything it is cracked up to be! Lots of fun, engaging activities, and of course we do throw in a little learning. Family Reunion is a time of fellowship and engagement, bringing the Bickford Family together for a time of renewal. One of the fun things we do at Family Reunion is celebrate those Bickford Family Members that go above and beyond at the Pearl Ceremony. I am pleased that in my division, this year we have a BFM up for 6 of the 7 categories! Congratulations to Macomb Kitchen Manager of the Year nominee, Shawn Carroll; Marion BFM of the Year nominee Mike Merchant; Burlington RNC of the Year nominee Teddie Rinehart; Iowa City/Marion CRD of the Year nominee Holly Blood; Cedar Falls Director of the Year nominee Natalie Feldman; and the entire team in Cedar Falls for their Branch of the Year nomination. Michelle and I had a lot of fun surprising them all with a "pearlposal" inviting them to the Pearl Ceremony held in February at Family Reunion. Congratulations to all nominees, you all are very deserving!

Whatever it takes! With Snowmaggedon 2018 in full force, your loved one is in good hands! Have no fear, our caregivers have done whatever it takes to drive, ski, or sled in to work. Caregivers across the Midwest prepared for the worst and came to work early, stayed over extra hours, shoveled snow, cooked breakfast, and most importantly kept the branch running smooth and residents safe and warm. We have an assistant director remain at her branch for 42 hours. 2 caregivers came in Sunday morning, and stayed through the day and night to ensure cares were provide. Caregivers have helped others with rides to work. One branch provided air mattresses, blankets and pillows for those stranded at work. Caregivers hitched rides with 4 wheel drives and snow plows. A branch without power moved all of their residents to the living room near the fireplace to stay warm. Doing whatever it takes, happily, for our residents. Stay warm and safe, your loved one is.

Halloween sure has changed over the years!

According to Debby Bitticks, creator of "Cherished Memories" Capturing a life story is more than just an exercise in storytelling. It's a chance to pass along wisdom and life lessons. It gives you an opportunity to exercise your memory; organize your photos and music; and discover if any events from your past are still impacting your life. According to Debby, it gives you an opportunity for self-growth, reflection and awareness. It's a chance to strengthen family bonds, friendships and intimate relationships. You can capture your health history and even draft an ethical will to share your values, blessings, life's lessons, hopes and dreams for the future, love and forgiveness with your family, friends and community. Cherished Memories is a 96-page guide for documenting your life story or that of a loved one. Now, she can add a 102 reason for documenting your life story: It's good for your health. What are you waiting for? You have a story to tell!

I love sitting in that spot as residents often cut through the courtyard on their way to a meal or activity, so it is a great opportunity to stop and visit, check in with them, or see how their day is. Not to mention an occasional rub down! Of course, I had to offer to pay her back, which she gladly accepted. As the old saying goes....you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours!

They say pets are the best therapy and after seeing the smiles this week, I might just agree! I rescued this little one a couple weeks ago and after a vet visit and some Bickford love, she is on the mend. It's proven that animals can lower blood pressure, diminish overall physical pain, and lessen depression and anxiety. The resident's decided to name her Puddles since she was found in a puddle. Only problem, I think the name Cuddles would fit a little better with all the cuddling she's been doing this week! Stop by and say "Hi" to the cutest new member of our Bickford family. -J
