This afternoon at our regular Friday root beer float party we observed “Elder Abuse Prevention Awareness” month. In addition to the floats, there were cupcakes with purple frosting. Lisa, our activities director, read an article about types of elder abuse in this country and how to stop or prevent it. Lisa recently joined the Board of Health and Human Services of Polk County. When the other members learned that she is with CARE, they told her that they never have to worry about the CARE residents; they know that we receive very good care.
