School is out. The grass is green. Flowers are blooming. And spring has fully arrived, bringing with it our oh so lovely, but warm Georgia weather.
As Derrick Merchant points out in this month's Enews, it's a great time for caregivers and clients. The sunshine brings them outside together to work in the garden or head to the coffee shop. It's an opportunity for them to get to know each other better and do different activities with the warmer climate.
It's definitely not sweater weather. But our "3rd Annual Sweaters for Seniors" is heating up for autumn. We've been coordinating our 2010 program with DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett County Senior Services. All three metro Atlanta counties are on board and excited to distribute sweaters to seniors we collect in the fall. Now, we just need the sweaters and more great schools like The Galloway School and R.L. Norton Elementary to help us collect them! If you know any teachers, principals or cause oriented students, ask me to email you the fun school activity kit we created.
As far as other "hot" news, how about Alternative Home Care for Seniors is now franchising in Georgia. Soon, we'll offer great territories in Florida, North and South Carolina, Kentucky, Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee. If you know a compassionate entrepreneur who is looking for a business opportunity, send them our way. We'll give you $1K for any referral you give that turns into an AHCS partner. (This mention does not constitute the offer of a sale of a franchise.) See details here.
Be well, stay cool and happy spring!
