Puget Sound
Monthly Marketing Update- May 2024

April was an incredibly busy month for our team as we crossed the country: Washington DC to support Alzheimer’s Advocacy with Congressional meetings, Nashville for the National Case Management Conference, ongoing CEU events in multiple cities, Adult Care Home Conference in Oregon, our Puget Sound Release Party - all in addition to our regular commitments. WHEW! I am so grateful to work with such a talented and committed team.

Our team had a great time networking with so many friendly faces at the Release Party last week! Take a moment to view the photos on Facebook and tag yourself. If you missed the event, please join us for our Tacoma Happy Hour next week on May 8th! The newest edition of the guide is available at every hospital, library, and senior center. If you want more copies to share with those in your community, just let us know. Click here to order more guides

The 10% Early Bird discount for reserving ad space in the 2025 edition will be available starting next week. Ad content and payment will not be due until next year, this is simply our way of thanking our sponsors by offering the best placement at a discounted rate. Please reach out if you are interested in being included in the 2025 guide.

We have rolled out numerous updates on and are so proud of the advanced features. It's now easier than ever to search for Senior living and care, create a custom “my list”, and share your list of resources with others with the share/print button. Make sure to check out the updates and start reporting your availability today.

Transitions of Care
The goal of this meeting is to improve communication between case management and community providers. This ZOOM call provides thirty minutes of engagement with hospital case management staff, followed by 15 minutes of provider discussion if needed.

(we know that the timing in June will be a challenge for our sponsors attending the Providence Everett resource fair, but we schedule events at the convenience of the hospital, you may want to share the link with others on your team)

Join Zoom Meeting-

Nugget Of Knowledge

"Work hard, play hard"

Finding work-life balance can be a challenge. I find the best balance comes from really enjoying the work you do, being proud of your efforts, and having strong relationships with your team. If you can find this, it doesn’t seem like work. My work family makes every day better, from our team camping trips to strategic planning.
