Hello everyone! Did you know that we are hosting families for the Thanksgiving noon meal?  Spots are filling up fast, so get with Nicole and/or Cheryl with your plans.  We want to make sure there is enough turkey to go around :)  

Also, huge news that our Resident Happiness Survey results are in!  Our results were top notch! We will celebrate, but then be back on the mission for next year.  Our goals will be focused on keeping our bread basket cleaned up, resident healthcare privacy

and as always, making moments of happiness for each resident and their family! 

Instead of an evening get-together for the holidays, we have decided to give each resident's family a poinsettia.  We were able to support Nicole Ackley's son, Caleb, with this purchase for his class at Edison School.  Thanks to Sharon Morrow's daughter Brooklyn, who will provide our greenery for the winter months.  She attends St. Paul's School.  

Sincerely, 

Robin Wike

We are marching head first into the holiday season, things are about to get a whole lot busier! Watch for some WIU students to be in this month to lead an activity of their own, as well as the Accordion Group coming to perform for us. Also, a reminder that our Thanksgiving meal is only a few short weeks away, so get those reservations in soon! I am proud to say I've been your LEC for a year now, and I am growing and learning, and loving every oppportunity provided to me to enrich all of your lives. I proudly stand by the motto, Whatever It Takes To Make You Happy! Let's have a joyous, wonderful, exciting, memorable holiday season!

              Nicole-Life Enrichment Coordinator

BFM November Spotlight

Copy/Image 3a

We'd like to introduce you to Deb Christner! Deb is our second shift LPN. She has been with Bickford for two and a half years. The best part about working in assisted living for her is getting to know the residents and the back stories of their lives. All while providing them excellent, quality care.

A few fun facts about Deb: her favorite color is green, her favorite food is chicken, and her favorite band is KISS. Deb's favorite movie is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and her favorite show is Bonanza.

Deb is most inspired just simply by life. She describes herself as dependable, determined and opinionated. Next time you stop by in the evening, make sure to say hello to Deb and maybe you'll even catch her when she has a few minutes to play Qwirkle or help a resident with a puzzle. Thank you for all that you do Deb, we appreciate you!
