Welcome to another New Post Wednesday. News is light today but always worth sharing!

I received notice of this event from Rebecca Sterling, the Community Director of Hickory Forest in Nashville, TN.

A 13 year old resident at the property called 911 when his mother collapsed at their apartment. The operator was able to assess the situation over the phone and help the boy monitor his mother while medical personnel traveled to the property. The article reminds everyone of the importance of teaching children pertinent information such as their address along with the emergency services phone number 911.

Indian Ridge in Shelbyville, KY had a fun celebration for “Talk Like a Pirate Day” last week. They collected loot in a treasure hunt, walked the plank, and played games such as “pass the parrot” and “ring the sword”, not to mention hosting a (temporary) tattoo parlor and enjoying snacks.

Carinia Watson, Community Manager at Beechwood Villa in Cincinnati, OH shared a nice note she received from a new resident. Remember, the work we’re doing can make a huge difference in someone’s life!

With gratitude & coffee,
