Meet Ashley Stickler! Ashley is a 3rd shift CNA who is celebrating her 5 year anniversary with us at the end of the month! Her favorite color is blue-I wonder if that has anything to do with her love of the Chicago Cubs? She also likes Bewitched reruns and her favorite food is pasta.

    Ashley is inspired by her  kids because they make her want to do her best in life. Her 4 children are also her proudest accomplishment, along with going back to college.

   She has a special talent of crocheting and is also a pretty good baker. Ashley describes herself as kind, honest and hard working- we couldn't agree more!

    Ashley's favorite thing about Senior Living is meeting new and interesting people. She enjoys learning about their lives and all the things they have done. Being able to help someone who needs a little extra care warms her heart. We wish Ashley a Happy Bickford Anniversary and a Happy Birthday here in August!

Flu vaccine consent forms will be mailed to Power of Attorney for our residents in September 2018, with Flu Clinics being conducted in early October. Please complete the consents & return to Cindy McDaniel RNC, as soon as possible. The flu can have serious implications

for the elderly & we at Bickford want to protect our families from this dangerous illness.

If you do not want to have the flu vaccine administered to your loved one, please return the consent with "REFUSED" written on the consent form. Some families prefer to have the vaccine administered at their Physician's office, let me know if that is your plan & I will document that as well. If you have any questions, please call Cindy at 309-836-9700.

It's the last leg of summer! My family and I often hike the trails at Argyle and we are noticing the leaves changing colors already.  So squeeze in those summer activities  while you can!  

We're excited about the next annual survey  coming to you September/October.  Remember!  We are very active to resolve your concerns; with that in mind, please feel comfortable letting us know where we need to improve.  We want to know :)

Mark your calendar's for the next Family Counsel meeting at Old Dairy, 11:30 to 12:30pm on Tuesday, October 16.  Lunch is on us! We will have a guest speaker, Ashley Gordon from Harbor Light Hospice who will be chatting with us about what services they offer. 

School will be starting soon!  If you know a group of kids (girl scouts, boy scouts) put a bug in their ear about visiting Bickford!  :)

Sincerely, Robin Wike
