Senior Access Hats
Hi,

Happy March! 

I was thinking about the many hats we wear (from my last newsletter) and the many ways to “represent” and show support for Senior Access.

I just heard about a happy birthday fundraising opportunity through Facebook. In addition to receiving wishes and birthday love from your friends and Facebook followers, you can also raise money for Senior Access. Two weeks before your birthday, Facebook will send you an invitation to fundraise. And, then it’s up to you to share Senior Access’ name, how much you’d like to raise and the time frame for your fundraiser. It’s easy, helps us financially and also helps to raise awareness about Senior Access and memory loss.

Speaking of awareness, we are actively recruiting volunteers for our Memory Wellness Team. We are looking for people who would like to be trained to facilitate memory screenings, brain fitness and memory wellness classes. Are you or someone you know interested in joining our memory wellness team? It’s a great learning and life experience and only takes a few hours per month. Please email me if you’re interested.

Wishing you a fabulous Spring, filled with renewal and growth. As Senior Access’ Chief Growth Officer, I look forward to working with all of you to support the growth and expansion of Senior Access.


Thank you,

Dana
