The feel of fall is in the air and we are certainly getting ready to enjoy some fall activities. On our schedule is a foliage trip, a visit to Mac’s Farm Stand, fall shopping, and a number of entertainers who will usher in the season with us. Even our baking and craft activities will embrace the essence of fall. Let’s not forget our all out Halloween Bash!
There will be a couple of special days we will celebrate! We will have a “Welcome back Brady” party on October 9th and hail the return of the Patriots quarterback. Join us if you can, we would love to have you. “Say Something Silly Day” on October 13th will embrace all those silly phrases we say like “I’ll be a monkey’s uncle”. We will create a large poster with residents, staff and any visitors who want to join in! As for Popcorn Poppin’ Month we have that covered with our new popcorn popper that we use in the activity room. It’s a throwback to an old time machine, and the smell of the popcorn popping is intoxicating.
It was great to see so many family and friends at our Family Bar-B-Que. I hope you had as much fun as our staff and board did meeting you. Wasn’t the food magnificent? Kudos to our Dietary Department for preparing all that food and serving it with a smile.

From http://www.seniorhousingnews.com, May 20, 2015. Article by Cassandra Dowell
Original article: http://seniorhousingnews.com/2015/05/20/vermont-new-hampshire-top-list-of-healthiest-states-for-seniors
Vermont ranks as the healthiest state for seniors in 2015 thanks in part to low intensive care unit (ICU) use and ready availability of home-delivered meals, new research shows.
New Hampshire ranks second. Minnesota falls to third after being ranked first for two years in a row, while Hawaii and Utah round out the top five states, respectively, according to the newest edition of United Health Foundation’s America’s Health Rankings Senior Report: A Call to Action for Individuals and Their Communities.
Louisiana ranks 50th as the least healthy state for older adults, preceded by Mississippi, Kentucky, Arkansas and Oklahoma, research shows.
But even the top ranking state has areas in which to improve, including a high prevalence of chronic drinking, low hospice care use and high prevalence of falls.
“It is heartening to see seniors’ health is improving, but our societal challenge remains finding ways to encourage more seniors to be more active,” says Rhonda Randall, D.O., senior adviser to United Health Foundation, and chief medical officer and executive vice president, UnitedHealthcare Retiree Solutions, in a statement.
Strong community support is key to promoting positive health among seniors, Randall says.
“We must work together – across states, communities and our own families – to encourage all seniors to find ways to be as active as they’re able to be,” she says.
