FAMILIES and FRIENDS at BICKFORD

We celebrated 4th of July taking funny pictures all day!!

There was a grilled lunch with banana splits, rootbeer floats in the afternoon and in the evening we had more ice cream along with some fireworks.  During the month of July we visited the Sunken Gardens and it was a very HOT day, but a very nice visit.  We went out for a lunch outing and had our regular every other week shopping trips.  There was some crafts and painting with Candy on Wednesday evenings.  We celebrated Italian Day with a wine and cheese party and music by Tom Roth.  We also enjoyed music during July from Dennel(Old Time Music), Bill Chrastil, The Kramer Sisters, Anne Bremmer and Rose.  Hope everyone had a Happy 4th.

Oh yes, it is getting close to that time again.  We just want to remind you that if you go to the doctor please get your flu shot.  Bickford does provide it if you need it, if you have any questions regarding flu shots please see Kari or Kaylee.  Vaccination to prevent influenza is particularly important for people who are at high risk of serious complications from influenza such as children younger than 5, but especially children younger than 2, adults 65 and older, pregnant women, residents of care facilities.

People who have medical conditions. 

A few tips to keep our Residents and Staff safe from exposure to the Flu:

1) Please do not visit until you are free of any cold or flu-like symptoms for at least 48 hours.  

2) Let the resident know you are unable to visit and consider a phone visit instead.

*Wash your hands often

*Cover your cough

*Avoid public gatherings, people with cold/flu symptoms.  

*Drink plenty of liquids and get rest.
