The Latest…February 2021

Happy Valentine's Day!

The history of Valentine’s Day–and the story of its patron saint–is shrouded in mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance and that St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition.

Rick says:

Some studies have suggested chocolate could lower cholesterol levels and prevent memory decline. Researchers speculate this is why men buy women chocolates... So they won’t forget about them!

Becky says:

February is also National Heart Awareness Month, so try not to break any hearts this month!

Employee of the Month

Diana came to us as a part-time caregiver last September. She has many years of experience in-home care and facility settings. She moved back to this area to be close to her grandchildren. It wasn’t long before Diana was working full-time, and then some. She seems to be a perfect fit wherever we need her. She’s like the postal service: Rain, sleet or snow, if she’s scheduled you can be sure she will be there. And in Michigan winter, that’s saying something. For Diana caregiving is much more than a job, It’s a calling. She’s a true professional. You see it in her performance every day.

February Is National Heart Health Awareness Day
