Volunteer appreciation week
April 10-16 is Volunteer Appre- ciation Week. We thank all our dedicated resident and community volunteers who do such a great
job for Salina Presbyterian Manor, extending our reach to residents and the community at large. We appreci- ate you!
Please join us in thanking all our volunteers for their time and com- mitment to us and our mission
to provide quality senior services guided by Christian values.
According to Volunteer Coordinator Janet Smith, more than 115 non-res- ident volunteers provided service at the manor between June 30, 2014, and July 2015, our last complete fiscal year.
Just Ask program
A Just Ask education program on “Walking with an assistive device: which is best for me?” is scheduled for April 14 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. The talk is open to the public. The topic was suggested by those who attended last September’s fall prevention class. Celice Plank, therapy department director, will present information and safety tips for using assistive devices such as canes and walkers.
April 19 is Founder’s Day, celebrating Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America’s 67th anniversary and Salina Presbyterian Manor’s 36th anniversary. We will celebrate on Tuesday, April 19, so watch SAMN for notices of special activities for the day.
