As I mentioned above, our main focus this month is on commemorating Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month and the fight against Alzheimer’s and dementia. While this is of the utmost importance, we are definitely still going to have some fun! And don’t worry dads…we definitely haven’t forgotten you. So get ready for some stretching, celebrating, and even our favorite game! Enjoy your June!
National Cancer Survivors Day – June 6th
Unfortunately, we deal with many illnesses at Arbor Springs. And while they can bring sadness, they can also bring triumph. These struggles make us stronger and bring us closer together. Today, celebrate those who fought and survived their struggle with cancer. In fact, celebrate anyone you know who has been affected by this devastating disease. Community is so important when faced with obstacles like this!
Juneteenth – June 19th
Our country had a very open discussion about race and freedom last year. And while it continues, it is important to learn more about and embrace everything that entails. Juneteenth celebrates African American freedom as well as encouraging and acknowledging the deep history around this. On this day, think about how you could do more to learn more.
Father’s Day – June 20th
The moms had their day last month, now it’s pop’s turn! We look forward to celebrating this wonderful day with all our dads here at Arbor Springs and in our larger community. Father’s Day is a special time where we get to appreciate those men in our lives that truly influenced who we are and how we see the world.
Longest Day – June 20th
This day typifies the fight against Alzheimer’s we recognize all month. Last year, we had to significantly limit our embrace and commitment to this day. Now that things are changing, let’s do a little extra. Take a look below to see how you can help out this year!
International Yoga Day – June 21st
Okay, we know that stretching, bending, contorting, and otherwise uncomfortably positioning yourself for long periods of time is not everyone’s go-to activity. But even simple yoga and yogic practices are excellent for your physical and mental health. On this International Yoga Day, try something simple. We recommend Child’s Pose!
National Bingo Day – June 27th
So yoga is fun and all, but let’s be honest…Bingo’s what it’s all about! We don’t really need a national day to celebrate this fantastic game and Arbor pastime, but we’d be remiss in not mentioning it. ☺
Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month
This is a very special month for us here at Arbor Springs. Our passion, love, and commitment to those suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia is what brought many of us to this community. Our common fight against these barriers is what binds us and makes our community strong. Remember this all month long, as we all do our part!
