Caring Corner – September 2021

Step Right Up!

The Step Up for Seniors Walk will be held on Saturday, September 25. It’ll be here before you know it!  Proper social distancing guidelines will be followed and we’ll still have many of the fun activities as in previous years: live music, raffles, kids’ activities and more details to come. A virtual option is also available.

 

 

Funds from the walk go toward many wonderful programs and services for FBH including staff education, nursing equipment, and therapeutic activities for residents.

 

It is $20 to register and receive a t-shirt! (kids 12 and under are free but still need to register). You can register as an individual or join or form a team.

To register, please use this link and just click “Register”:

SWEET DAYS OF SUMMER


 

 

 

 

 

 

Ever wonder if your donations make a difference?

Well, just ask the happy residents and staff who enjoyed ice cream in late August, courtesy of funding from the Foundation’s Small Grants Committee!  Sandra Chait, our Director of Housing, requested and received money to pay for three different events this summer; at the final one , approximately 100 residents and staff enjoyed a frosty treat from Lugia’s, a local ice cream shop, thanks to generous supporters like you whose gifts make efforts like this possible!

 

 

MISSION PARTNER SPOTLIGHT

 

This month’s spotlight shines on Special Care Systems.  Special Care Systems has been one of FBH’s most generous supporters for the past 7 years by supporting the Swing for Seniors golf tournament and Step Up for Seniors fundraising walk. We are very thankful for their continued dedication to the mission of Fairport Baptist Homes. Special Care Systems is “New York State’s premier provider and integrator for healthcare communications.”
