Monthly Marketing Update- June 2023

Happy Summer, I hope you are enjoying this weather as much as I am! This is 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. See/share our Facebook post also.

We still have several months before the deadline for the next edition of Retirement Connection comes out in 2024, but this is a great time to reserve your ad space. Here are 3 great reasons: 1) to ensure we are included in your 2024 budget 2) you can break out the payments for more flexibility by reserving early 3) you will have priority for hospital events before non-sponsors.

Last but not least, we had a great turnout at the Providence St Vincent Resource Fair in May, and we are working to get more hospitals scheduled for the fall- stay tuned. Additionally, PeaceHealth and Adventist have asked to schedule a second event for the year as well.

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.
