February 2015

Love is in the Air! Love for family, friends and fun!

 Thank you to all who attended the Holiday Party. All of our Residents had such a wonderful time and were so happy to have all of you with them to celebrate!

Residents have been very enthusiastic about activities, especially card games! Many Residents participated in activities this past month that they have never tried before or haven’t done for a long time.

We will celebrate a love for DESSERTS on February 18, which is definitely shared by all who live at Autumn’s Promise! See you there!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

National Wear RED Day by the American Heart Association!

Friday, February 6, 2015

National Wear Red Day® — the first Friday each February — is our special day to bring attention to this staggering fact (it is not just a “man” disease; 1 of 3 women die of heart disease or stroke). We encourage everyone to wear red, raise their voices, know their cardiovascular risk and take action to live longer, healthier lives.

 Support Group

Autumn’s Promise is inviting family members and friends of their loved ones to have the opportunity to share feelings, problems, ideas, and information with others experiencing the same situations.

Autumn’s Promise Support Group will be confidential. This will be a place to share and learn from the others about the different experiences with their loved one and the aging process. This group is designed to be informational about disease and care-giving, remind us we are not alone, encourage us not to forget our own health, talk each other through difficult times and of course, share memories good times.

When: February 20, 2015 @ 1:30 PM
Where: Autumns Promise
