Grace Pointe Gives Back

Each holiday season, Grace Pointe is alive with music, food and fun. And in addition to enjoying fabulous holiday dinners, visits from Santa, and almost daily live entertainment, Grace Pointe staff, residents and their families find time to give back.

In what has become a much anticipated holiday event, we kicked off the season with our Holiday Gift Show and Chili Lunch. We had a record number of vendors this year, selling scarves, leggings, quilts, jewelry makeup, baked goods and more! Proceeds from the Chili and Cornbread lunch funded a coat drive for the District Six Clothing Bank, supplying many coats for kids in Greeley schools.

Our 6th annual toy/food drive supported the Guadalupe Homeless Shelter and the Weld Food Bank. Barrels overflowed with nonperishable food donations, and our Assisted Living Christmas tree was overloaded with unwrapped toys. Inventoried later at the Shelter, Director Enita Hout happily reported that we had donated nearly $900 worth of toys for children at the shelter this Christmas, and a surplus of toys for the upcoming year.

The spirit of giving is alive and well at our community, and we thank each and every one of you for your participation in these wonderful holiday events.

It’s Flu Season – Three Actions to Fight it!

Flu is a serious contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. You have the power to protect yourself and your family this season with these three actions to fight flu.

1. Get a flu vaccine. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine by the end of October, if possible. A yearly flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against the flu.

2. Take everyday actions to stop the spread of germs. Wash your hands often with soap and water, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and wash your hands often with soap and water. If you become sick, limit your contact with others to keep from infecting them.

3. Take flu antiviral drugs if your doctor prescribes them. If you get the flu, medicine, called antiviral drugs, can be used to treat flu illness. Antiviral drugs can make illness milder and shorten the time you are sick. They may also prevent serious flu complications.

Medicare! Medicare! Medicare!

How in the world can anyone expect seniors to fully understand how their Medicare works? Enrolling in Medicare and keeping up with the changing policies and guidelines can seem overwhelming.

To learn more and receive guidance through the process, I urge seniors to please find a family member and attend this year’s Medicare Monday! It is a FREE and open to the public workshop presented by the Colorado Gerontological Society. Come learn about Medicare updates and changes for 2017.

MEDICARE MONDAY will be hosted by Grace Pointe this year on October 31, 2016, at 1919 68th Avenue in Greeley, Colorado from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. Call 970-304-1919 for reservations.

This workshop is for anyone who has Medicare, is soon going to need Medicare, or anyone who knows someone who has Medicare…..almost every adult can fall into one of those categories.
Colorado Gerontological Society provides solid answers to seniors’ questions and will also bring handouts to help understand your Medicare and upcoming changes. Feel free to share this flyer with anyone you think might be interested.
