Subtle signs of fall are creeping into the area... cooler temperatures, shorter days, and school in session. I enjoy living in Iowa with the changing of seasons. Although, summer is quickly slipping away I am looking forward to the fall colors and the crisp air.
The Evan's Memorial Home is fortunate to have the Cresco Assisted Living facility as part of our community. The assisted living offers a homelike environment that allows for independence with services tailored to meet individual needs. The week of September 8th - 14th is recognized as National Assisted Living week. Although, we appreciate the efforts year round, this week provides an opportunity to recognize the staff and tenants. The theme this year is a "Spark of Creativity". There are fun events planned throughout the week to showcase the creative side including canvas painting, message in a bottle, and ending the week with a grill out.
Lastly, as fall approaches so does the influenza season. The facility offers the annual vaccination and we strongly enough all residents, tenants, and staff to receive. In the near future you may receive a consent form allowing your loved one to receive the annual vaccine. Please complete and return as quickly as possible. If you have any questions please contact the facility. As much as we encourage visitors, if you are not feeling well please postpone your visit.
