Beautiful day out today. Our residents have been taking advantage of the nice weather and sitting outside & getting some fresh air. I really enjoy the end of my day, driving out of the driveway, honking my horn & waving to all of my Bickford residents sitting out front. Comforting knowing that they are enjoying themselves. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Pretty anxious about our Mother's Day Tea. Looking forward to seeing everyone....over 50 reservations! Lots of work ahead of us in preparation, but I've got it. I couldn't do it w/out my resident friends who are willing and able to pitch in and help me out w/everything! Love them!
