I think it is safe to say that Fall is definitely in the air. Here at Bickford of Wabash, the vibrant fall colors can be seen thru out the branch, both inside and outside. We are getting excited to see all of the little ghosts and goblins coming for treats on Halloween and are especially excited to host our first annual Bark-n-Boo for our furry friends. Fall is also the start of "flu season". Bickford has completed our yearly flu clinic for residents and staff so hopefully we will be "flu free" this year. If you or your loved one have not been vaccinated, I highly recommend visiting your physician or local clinic to get vaccinated today. And remember, the best way to prevent infection is by washing your hands. Using soap and water is preferred but if you don't have access those items, alcohol gel will do the trick.

The week is already half over, and it's already been a busy one. This is National Assisted Living Week. The theme this year is Capture the Moment. So all week long we're holding a Name that Baby contest. We have old pictures of both residents and staff. People get to guess who is who. We have photo booth props for everyone to take pictures with. Today was Dress Your Decade Day. So a few of us are dressed like people did in the decade we were born--60s, 70s, 80s . . . With that theme in mind we played hangman this afternoon. The topic was slang from each decade. We had fun with words and phrases like: the cat's pajamas, I'll be a monkey's uncle, keeping up with the Joneses, Big Brother is watching you, groovy, get down, and gag me with a spoon. Always something fun (groovy, hip, cool) happening at Bickford of Wabash.

It is hard to believe August is almost here. Even though we will still have summer weather, the kids will be starting back to school in just a few short weeks. We are always excited for this time of year because we get to enjoy time with some local high school students a couple times a month. We love being able to interact with the younger generation; it helps us to feel a bit younger and we enjoy being able to share a part of our lives with them.

The weather is HOT, HOT, HOT here in Wabash today! Everyone is staying in out of the heat and enjoying nice, cold lemonade and water. Can you believe there are actually people out golfing in this heat? We have been making sure they are keeping cool and hydrated as well with cold bottles of water. This afternoon our Bickford Family Members were treated to Dairy Queen Buster Bars to cool them off before heading into the heat to go home for the day. No outdoor activities today but everyone enjoyed indoor exercises followed by a nice, relaxing foot soak. Usually we would also have a visit from the local animal shelter but it is even too hot for the animals to come out. Speaking of animals, did you that Bickford of Wabash is one of the only assisted living homes that allows pets? We love pets so much that we have donated $73 to the shelter to be used towards pet adoptions. Our BFM's pay $1 every Friday to wear jeans to work; this money is then donated to the local animal shelter. This is something we hope to continue and hopefully will be able to sponsor more adoptions; who knows, we may even adopt our own pet!

Always something fun happening at Bickford of Wabash.

Manicures. Who doesn't like a good manicure? That's how we spent our morning. This afternoon our monthly bingo store was open. Bingo bucks earned while playing bingo were used to purchase snacks and toiletries. After that we tested our brains with riddles. Here's a sample: What belongs to you but is used more by others?

Fridays are always fun days. This morning we expressed ourselves artistically, then we exercised together. This afternoon we worked up an appetite by using a rolling ice cream maker to make homemade ice cream. Then we ate it. Yum! Always something fun happening at Bickford of Wabash.
