Caring Corner February 2018

A Look Back, A Look Ahead…

Here are some highlights of 2017 for the Foundation, including a great new employee recognition program, Caring Hands.

Our wonderful donors were exceptionally generous last year! Some highlights:

  • Nine departments within FBH received Foundation Grants, for such ideas as physical therapy equipment, staff education, and signage that will improve residents’ awareness of activities and events at our new Woodlands complex. These terrific ideas can be funded because of the exceptional support of our caring donors!
  • Our new “Caring Hands” program started in late 2017, which recognizes staff members who “go the extra mile” in their work here. So far, 9 donors have nominated 10 staff members for this program. Donations in their honor are the basis for our new Staff Assistance Fund, which will pay for such things as flowers for a staff member who might be hospitalized, or a cake for a retirement party.

WHAT’S UP FOR 2018?

Our two events, Swing for Seniors and Step up for Seniors, are back!
