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.

Here at Bickford of Cedar Falls we are already in the works for our Annual Halloween party. Of course with fall comes cold and Flu season. I am excited about the new tools Branch Support has provided for us to improve our care, and be more proactive in preventing the spread of the Flu in all of our Branches. We love our residents and our BFM's, we want them to stay healthy so they can enjoy all of the upcoming Holiday Fun.

Greetings. What a great week! We had a fun country fair with entries of photography, zucchini, art work, cookies, and a grand prize winner of pecan pie bites! We had vendors selling items brought back from a mission trip in Mongolia, locally made honey, and home canned salsa and jalapeno's. We had Thirty-one bags, and beautiful handmade signs. There was definitely something for everyone. It was certainly a fun day, but the most fun was collecting over $250 for the Alzheimer's Association, Walk to End Alzheimer's, that will be held in Waterloo on September 22nd. Our team, Bickford Cedar Falls, will be walking and showing our support in fighting against this awful disease. We love and care for those affected, so to be an active participant in this cause is profoundly important to us. If you would like to join our team, let us know. Show your support with a donation, or with your time. To save a memory...to catch a memory...is worth our time and support. Blessings from all of us here at Bickford Cedar Falls.

Pay backs are.....WONDERFUL! As I was sitting in the sun room at the Cedar Falls branch working away, Miss Julianna stopped by and gave me a quick shoulder massage! Boy, did that feel nice! 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!

Howdy!!! Here we are, practically in the middle of July!!! And what are we doing here at Bickford Cedar Falls? Growing vegetables and flowers. Our garden is full of life and blooming up into the sky. Our cucumbers and tomatoes are coming in by the bushel. We are watching closely for the yellow and orange to turn to red so we can pick and taste our hard work. We have already picked four good sized cucumbers. From seed to plant, to reward...that's what has been the exciting part. And that is what Bickford is all about. When a new family member joins us, we cultivate, with love, our mission with them. We encourage them to grow in happiness and joy. We plant our time, and what ever it takes to make them know this is their home. Then we watch the reward of happiness and joy we can see in their life, and their family's life. So come on out and join us...see what we are all about. We would love to show you our home. From all of us here at Bickford Cedar Falls, Blessings

What a beautiful day!!! Today we celebrated Mom's and Grandma's. Here at Bickford Cedar Falls we gathered for a Mother/Daughter Tea party. There were 64 ladies in attendance!!! That's a lot of love being shared! As Mother's Day approaches this Sunday, try and think about all the ways Mom has had an impact on your life. Think of specific moments that have shaped you into who you are. Then if you are able...tell your Mom thank you. And if not...say a prayer of thanksgiving and offer it up. Maybe even pass it on down the line to the next generation? What better way to preserve Mom then to teach her wisdom to our future.

It's a happy day to sing and dance!!! Bringing music to our home is very important to us here at Bickford Cedar Falls. Music is something that most can connect with in some way. It can evoke emotions and thoughts, memories, and behavior. With music we can express what our hearts feel, maybe even when we feel we cannot find another way to do so. So find a song, tune, or note to grab onto today. Feel the movement of the music as it becomes what you need it to be, for you. And for us here at Bickford Cedar Falls, we will keep a lively song in our hearts...and we wish only beautiful blessings to all of you.

Then we sat around in the sun visiting, and enjoying the court yard sunshine. We have been waiting so long for this, but most of all we have been waiting to get out and soak up the warm sun. Finally we can shake off the thick sweaters and move around more freely. Here at Bickford Cedar Falls we are loving this opportunity to spend time with friends in the warm sunshine.

SPRING!!! Yet here we are needing mittens. But that did not stop us from starting our garden. A group of us planted the seeds, then will be transferring them when the weather warms up, to our raised garden in the courtyard. Getting our hands into the dirt feels pretty good after trying to keep them warm all winter. What also feels good is spending time with each other, laughing, and sharing a common joy in watching life grow, from something we started from the beginning...together. Give a little bit of your busy day to those who were the beginning, of your beginning. Let them know how much you appreciate the time they gave of their lives in cultivating, and who carefully...lovingly, guided your life so you could become the person you are now.

Greetings! Here we are at April 4th. Someone forgot to tell Iowa that it was spring! We are looking out the window and seeing a dusting of snow. Despite the white stuff, we gave it no mind and started our garden anyway. Yesterday we planted the seeds to our garden, and put them in our sun room to start the sprouts. When they are ready we will replant them in the raised garden in the courtyard. Our bounty will include tomatoes, onions, peppers, carrots, and beets. The fun will be in watching them grow. As the spring continues to poke through the cold, remember to keep your hearts warm with the love of the folks closest to you. It is that love that will be the foundation of continued love for generations on into the future. From all of us at Bickford Cedar Falls, blessings.

Happy Happy day to you. March is in full swing here at Bickford Cedar Falls. We are gearing up for our St. Patrick's Day party this Friday. We will be celebrating our folks with Irish heritages and the rest of us who love them. Our weather here in Eastern Iowa is starting to come around to a more spring like feel, and that is exciting for us. We are looking forward to getting our seedlings started for our garden, and our flowers ready for the courtyard. You might say we have a bit of springtime fever. Take time to look up into the sunshine and breathe the beauty of the changing season. It is a time of new growth and new beginnings. A time to shake off the dust and open our hearts wide for all things joyful. From all of us here at Bickford Cedar Fall...Blessings.
