Note from the Director 

Copy/Image 1a

 Fall is finally here and we look forward to crisp weather, apple cider and watching the leaves change color. 

 

 With the beauty of the season we also encounter the flu virus. I encourage everyone to continue proper handwashing and to remain home if you are experiencing any flu like symptoms. 

 

 While we are happy to see everyone, we want to ensure overall health of residents and BFMS; so please cover your sneeze.

 For additional information on the Flu Clininc, please reach out to RNC Amanda O'Brien. 

 We appreciate you helping us keep everyone safe during this time.

 

 Also, please mark your calendars for our monthly Resident Council Meeting, held every third Wednesday of the month at 2:00pm, located in Assisted Living.

 We love hearing how we are doing and finding out how we can better serve you and your family! 

 

Sincerely, 

Jessica Lyles
