This month brings us the beginning of the winter holiday season. We are sad that the COVID-19 restrictions may keep us from our loved ones. But we know that where there is great love, there is a remarkable ability to stay connected in the hardest of times. Let’s make sure to stay safe and stay healthy, but also stay close in the hearts of our loved ones.
Voting Day – November 3rd
Get out the VOTE! Voting is so important, and while you may have already cast your vote, it is essential to remember voting happens more than just once every four years. Now is a great time to stay involved with local and state politics. Your Vote is Your Voice. Don’t take it for granted.
Veterans Day – November 11th
Today we celebrate those who served for our country and our freedoms. You probably know a few veterans, and we here at Arbor Springs have the utmost reverence for their service. We look forward to honoring and supporting the many veterans who are a part of our Arbor family.
World Origami Day – November 11th
Origami is the art of folding paper. Crafts are great for memory, and while Origami can be extraordinarily intricate and tightly folded, having tried it myself, I know you don’t have to be great at it to enjoy it. Check out some instructions online and read up on Origami’s history if you are interested – it is fascinating.
World Diabetes Day – November 14th
“More than 34 million people in the United States have diabetes, and 1 in 5 of them don’t know they have it.” (CDC) Diabetes awareness and treatment are so important. Take the day today to make sure you understand your risk and how to go about identifying and treating diabetes.
Thanksgiving Day – November 26th
It’s that time of year again! A time for friends and family…and food! This is also a reminder that we are still very much living with the COVID-19 crisis. On Thanksgiving this year, it is important to remember the spirit of the holiday and that even if you are apart, it is the strong ties of family and friendship that connect us even across great distances.
Good Nutrition Month
Eating healthy is something we take very seriously. Not only getting enough food but also the right type of food. And eating well is more than just fruits and vegetables. It is careful planning and understanding your body, as well as it’s particular needs. This month, commit to understand your nutrition better and work to create the best plan for you!
National Caregivers Appreciation Month
We have celebrated many Appreciation Months in our Newsletters, but this is a special one. It’s special because we are all caregivers. This includes our diverse care team, our administrative staff, and even you. We consider everyone who helps out a caregiver. So make sure to say an extra special thank you to anyone who helps care for you or your loved one.
