We do have several things to relate to you related to next week’s National Assisted Living Week. The theme this year is “Compassion, Community and Caring”. We are preparing to celebrate and have several events lined up. Please take note so you can join in making your loved ones week as fun as possible! Here is a peak at what we have planned: Sunday 9/12- GRANDPARENTS DAY We will be celebrating Grandparents Day by taking pictures of our residents with their kids/grandkids/great grandkids out on the porch. Invite as many as you think we can fit in the picture! Lol. All of those guests will not be able to go inside, of course, as the 2 at a time rule still applies. ???? We will decorate the porch for fall so it should make for a festive photo. We will also be handing out assorted ice cream bars, etc at that time. I will be putting a SIGN UP SHEET on the bulletin board so you can know approximately what time to have your crew present. We anticipate only about 5 minutes between groups so everyone will need to be ready to go at your time… Monday 9/13 - The residents will be making dog biscuits to take to the Humane Society. Also Silly Sock Day! Please look for some goofy socks for your resident to wear to join in the fun. They are inexpensive and easy to get on and just fun. Tuesday 9/14- The residents will be touring the Solid Waste Plant (Landfill, Recycling center). Self Defense class in the evening! While we don’t anticipate any of our residents taking part in this event, it will be fun for them to watch as the BFMs take the class and learn a thing or two ! Wednesday 9/15 Dessert after Cook Out: Facials in the morning. While we would love to have you all over for a cookout, we cannot because of Covid ☹. We will be having a cookout for the residents though. To try to include you, we invite you to have up to 2 guests join your resident at 5:30 for funnel cakes for dessert! We will have areas marked off that are the required 6 feet apart for you to join your resident. We do ask that you bring lawn chairs for yourself to sit in. We can provide the chairs for the residents. Weather looks good so it should be a lovely evening for a little visit…. Thursday 9/16 Boat trip! Out on the boat down at Rock Creek Marina. This is always a very popular outing.. Sip and Paint in the evening! This is a first for us and will be led by our very own talented RN, Heidi ???? Friday 9/17 We wrap things up with The Grand Giveaway throughout the day. We will also crown a King and Queen. (Gerilyn also has a magician coming at some point…!) We should have a lot of fun…. We will also be having a FOOD DRIVE! This really exemplifies the theme of ‘community, compassion and caring.’ All week we will be collecting non-perishable food for the local food pantry. There will be a box just inside the door where you can place your donations. Please consider contributing.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, 1883. Many Americans celebrate Labor Day with parades, picnics and parties – festivities very similar to those outlined by the first proposal for a holiday, which suggested that the day should be observed with – a street parade to exhibit "the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations" of the community, followed by a festival for the recreation and amusement of the workers and their families. This became the pattern for the celebrations of Labor Day. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the economic and civic significance of the holiday. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the labor movement. American labor has raised the nation’s standard of living and contributed to the greatest production the world has ever known and the labor movement has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pays tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation's strength, freedom, and leadership – the American worker.By 1894, 23 more states had adopted the holiday, and on June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed a law making the first Monday in September of each year a national holiday.

Seniors Are At Increased Risk During The Summer Time Heat Seniors and those with chronic medical conditions often have difficulty regulating their body temperature. This can make the summer months a more dangerous time. It is important to have strategies to avoid overheating or becoming dehydrated. The University of Chicago Medical Center recently found that 40% of the heat-related deaths in the United States were among those over 65 years old. WHY ARE SENIORS VULNERABLE? Their bodies may not adjust to sudden changes in temperature quickly. Medical conditions can change the body’s ability to respond to heat appropriately. Prescription medications can interfere with the body’s ability to sweat and regulate temperature. HOW TO STAY COOL Avoiding strenuous activity and staying indoors during the hottest hours of the day is sound advice for people of all ages. For older adults, these tips can help reduce the risks that come with extreme heat: Drink plenty of cool water and avoid alcohol and caffeine. Don’t wait until you feel thirsty; stay hydrated throughout the day. Cool snacks such as fruit popsicles or frozen grapes could be a healthy and cooling way to beat the heat. Lighter, cooler meals are better than heavy, hot entrées. Cold salads and sandwiches are the best choice. Use a cool washcloth on the back of your neck when you’re feeling overheated.Placing your feet in a pan of cool water is also a good way to cool down. (Just make sure it’s not too cold!) Keep the house as cool as possible. Keeping the shades closed during the hottest parts of the day helps your fans and air conditioners run more efficiently and less expensively. Wear light layers of clothing so it is easy to adjust to an increase in temperature. Cool cotton fabrics are lightweight and breathable. Avoid heavier polyester fabrics. Visiting a senior center, shopping mall or coffee shop is a great way to find a cool, air-conditioned environment (that is free!). Cool showers, baths, and washcloths can help you feel cooler quickly. For maximum cooling, keep the water just below body temperature. There are inexpensive cooling products that you can keep in your freezer. Avoid direct contact with the skin if you are using ice or ice pads. Consider renting air-conditioning units and purchase low-cost fans to stay cool on a budget.
