Veteran's Day at Bickford is a very special day for a hand full of men here. Our LEC, Mindy arranged for our Vets to have a free meal from Applebee's today that included steak, shrimp and bacon cheeseburgers, whatever their heart desired. Our maintenance supervisor, John shared goodie bags that he got from the VA for our veterans.

After a nice lunch, we presented certificates and John pinned each veteran with a flag. The men shared their story of service and we shared how much we appreciate their sacrifice for all of us and our families. It is truly an honor to be in the presence of these men!

Share and share alike! As a division, we learn to work closely together, and share almost everything - from ideas to furniture, and now a van! When Burlington acquired their new bus this summer, they wanted to share some love and offered their mini van to Macomb! So in true iWILD fashion, Beth and Michelle coordinated their day and delivered the van to a surprised group of deserving residents and caregivers! Enjoy your new van, may you put many miles of smiles on it!

What do you do when a family calls needing immediate placement? What else? Put it into high gear, send the nurse to assess and start moving furniture! This is one of the many things we as caregivers do at Bickford. If someone you love needs immediate placement, even for the short term, give Bickford a call! One of our Directing Family Group members will be happy to assist you and discuss Retreat Stay availability.

A Caregiver's Manifesto

There is no higher calling, no greater purpose than that of a caregiver. Somehow, we’ve come to believe that caregiving is just for some of us and not all of us. Yet at our core, we are all made to love, to connect, to extend ourselves in service of others. The question is ... do we have the will to love, to do what it takes, to risk ourselves in caring, even when the burden is great? In times of happiness, in times of sadness - we are that caregiver. WHATEVER IT TAKES

As the Community Health Coordinator for Life Line Screening, I’m hoping you can help me spread the word about our upcoming health screening in Muscatine. Life Line Screening is holding a community health event at SS. Mary & Mathias Catholic Church on December 3rd and I was hoping you could share the event to your page. We provide preventive health screenings to those over 40, to check for risk factors for cardiovascular disease and stroke. https://business.facebook.com/events/506495093534559/
Looking forward to Coffee with the Mayor at Bickford of Muscatine!
