This “Vehicle” Gets Zero Miles to the Gallon—But We Love It All the Same!

Why do we adore our new “car” that doesn’t go anywhere, but accomplishes so much?

Thanks to an FBH Foundation grant, our Therapy Department became home this Spring to a “Trans-sit,” equipment that is designed to simulate getting into and out of an automobile, so that therapy patients can re-learn this critical skill.

“It may not sound like much,” comments Jody Illingworth, our Director of Rehabilitation, “but it’s so important to master—not just for essentials, like going to a doctor’s appointment, but for mental health, as well—getting out to see friends, shop, just a change of scenery.”  This is just one example of the many wonderful ways donations to the Foundation translate into top notch care for our residents, every single day!

Faithful Friends

A delicious meal wasn’t the only thing we gave thanks for at our recent luncheon honoring our supporters from local churches…

FBH welcomed two dozen representatives from churches that have supported us in recent years to our second annual “Faithful Friends” luncheon.  Chaplain Doug Allen not only said grace and gave thanks for everyone in attendance, he spoke eloquently about daily efforts to attend to our residents’ spiritual life and needs.  Churches of all denominations have been some of our most stalwart friends ever since our founding, and we couldn’t be more grateful to work with them.

Woodlands is now open!

Flower buds aren’t the only things popping open around here this Spring…

The grand opening for Woodlands, our new 41 unit senior living facility, on May 1 was a festive event, and new tenants started moving in immediately.  What did they find?  Beautiful finishes, lovely amenities, and the company of other active, vibrant seniors like them.  Interested in finding out more?  Just call Al at 585.610-6101 for more information.
