DEMENTIA SUPPORT GROUP 

Copy/Image 1a

 

We are excited to 

announce that we 

will be starting a 

Dementia Support 

Group to provide 

intimate and 

encouraging support.

 

Our support group 

will give you the 

opportunity to learn

from other families

experiences. In 

addition to 

receiving encouragment and 

hearing peronal 

stories, you can also

learn what to expect

and how to best

plan for your loved 

one.

Wednesday, January 

30th at 1:30p. 

 

We will provide 

light refreshments 

and drinks. 

 

For more information,

please contact Karryn

McQueen at

515-233-6000. 

 

We look forward to 

starting this group

and are excited to 

be able to provide 

adequate support to 

our families.

The month of 

December flew by,

but we sure tried 

our best to make 

every second count! 

 

We enjoyed our 

Winter Wonderland

theme day and our

"Holly Jolly Family 

Christmas Night". 

 

Our Christmas Lights

Outing was a HUGE 

success, so we

will be planning on

scheduling that 

every December.

Thank you Steve

for taking the time

and showing us the

best Christmas

lights of Ames, Iowa!

Happy New Year! 

We welcome 2019 

with open arms and

are extremely

excited to see what 

this year has in store

for all of our Bickford

Friends and Families.

 

As we jump into the 

new year, we ask

that anyone who may

be feeling under the 

weather, to please 

wait until symptoms 

are gone to visit

your loved ones. 

 

We appreciate you 

working with us to 

keep our Bickford 

Friends healthy in 

2019!
