Having fun where you work is just another perk of the job! One of the volunteer jobs I do is leading my daughter's kindergarten Girl Scout Daisy troop. Our troop stopped by Bickford of Burlington to share out talents of wreath making, and enjoyed a tour. We learned a lot from these ladies, and can't wait to join them again soon. Many Bickford's take advantage of different service organizations, We enjoy when troops help out with activities such as this, or service projects like cleaning up flower beds or setting up Christmas trees. If you have an organization that would love to join the fun and enjoy some inter generational interactions with our residents, please call your local Bickford!
Recycling is the new trash!
With the global push to "go green" many of our branches are getting on the electric band wagon by starting their own recycling programs. With the amount of large aluminum cans along with plastic in the form of milk jugs and cottage cheese/salad dressing/sour cream containers, we can reduce out carbon footprint by not only recycling, but reducing waste as well. Bickford promotes reusable water bottles with our caregivers, and encourages washable linens verses paper napkins and place mats.
You can help us be kind to planet earth as well by recycling your paper and newsprint in the offices, and recycling drinking cans and water bottles when visiting.
Hello Friends and Family! I hope your April is starting off with a bang. Please remember that at the beginning of each month you will receive a text message asking about your loved ones Bickford experience from the previous month. I would appreciate if you could take a few minutes to respond to the text message. We appreciate the time you take to fill out the small surveys as they are very important to us.
Thank you & have a nice day!
The calendar states spring has started, but it is still flu season. So remember, please don't visit the branch if you are not feeling well. I will be happy to give you updates on your loved one over the phone. Even if you are feeling well, remember to wash your hands before visiting and after visiting. The first 10 resident's family members that come to see me and mention this blog will get a free hand sanitizer.
Hello Friends and Family! March is in full swing and I cant wait for it to warm up do that we can start planting flowers and getting the branch all pretty for Spring time. We have several residents who love to help with that stuff. If you have any plants you would like to see planted stop in and let me know! Have a fantastic day!!
