New artificial intelligence (AI) research conducted at McGill University in Canada suggests that doctors may soon have the tools to predict an individual’s likelihood of developing dementia several years before the onset of symptoms. Such extended prognostic capability would give future dementia patients and their families more time to plan strategies for living with the disorder and to arrange for treatment and care. For more information on the study and other news about Alzheimer's go to this website: https://alzheimersnewstoday.com/2017/08/30/a-i-big-data-project-predicts-dementia-2-years-before-symptoms-manifest/

Hello everyone It is that time of year again for FLU shots. Why is it important...According to the Centers for Diease Control and prevention it can reduce the number of reoccurring hospitalizations,it can keep you from getting sick from the flu or not as severe if you do get sick. By getting the influenza vaccine it also protects those around you. Here at Bickford we will have vaccines available to our residents to protect them again this year against influenza. Watch for local clinics and get your flu shot this year For more information: www.cdc.gov/flu

Scholarship Recipient One of the many great opportunities Bickford provides for their Bickford Family members is the opportunity to advance their education through financial assistance. Bickford offers 2 scholarships each year. The Bickford scholarship is for current Bickford Family Members who are interested in furthering their education. The Eby Scholarship is for the children of Bickford Family Members who are pursuing higher education. I was lucky enough to not only present both scholarships to 2 very deserving students in my division, but the Eby scholarship was extra special as it went to my daughter this year! Riley is going to be a sophomore at the University of Iowa, majoring in nursing. She is a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honors Sorority, and has been accepted into the honors program. Congratulations Riley! Pictured is Riley (left) receiving her scholarship certificate from Divisional Director of Resident Services for Eastern Iowa/Western Illinois, Michelle Adam.
