Mid-Willamette Valley
Monthly Marketing Update- June 2023

Happy Summer, I hope you are enjoying this weather as much as I am! We only have a few months before the deadline to reserve your ad space. Here are 3 great reasons: 1) you can break out the payments for more flexibility by reserving early 2) to insure Retirement Connection is included in your annual budget 3) inclusion in sponsor events.

Important….On June 16th at 12 noon, I hope you and your colleagues will join my team for a very important event at the Alzheimer's Association office in Lake Oswego. We need YOUR voice to reverse the devastating CMS decision denying Medicare coverage for Alzheimer's treatments. I am speaking at this rally, and I am BEGGING you to please join me- I am hoping we can have at least 100 leaders and supporters attend. We need to increase awareness and gain news coverage for this issue. (Details below) Help spread the word. I know this may be a bit out of the way to drive to Portland, but the cause is VERY important. Every day this decision is delayed- 2,000 people with Alzheimer's move past the point of being able to receive these life-changing treatments because they are only available for those in the early stages of the disease.

Nugget Of Knowledge
"You can't do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth." ~ H. L. Mencken

My husband, Lyman, has been my example for the width and depth of a life. This past month he went on hospice and in these final weeks, he continues to touch the lives of everyone around him. No matter how much pain he feels, he finds a way to set others at ease with his wit and charm. Ask yourself- do I take the opportunity to make a moment about myself or about others? Working in senior care, we have a unique opportunity to make a difference in someone's life almost every single day. Go make a difference today.
