Happy New Year! Meadowlark Hills is kicking off 2014 with a Culture Story Contest. The purpose of this contest is to gather resident, family, staff and stakeholder’s stories that speak to the uniqueness of Meadowlark Hills and how person-directed care has changed their thoughts on what it means to age.

She died while I was mid-flight on my way to visit her in the hospital. She was 86, had fallen, and had complications.

In her town, when what appeared to be a driverless big car came grinding down the street in second gear, someone always chuckled, “Here comes Mary.” Barely five feet tall, she couldn’t see over the steering wheel, so she looked under it to see where she was going. Driving in second gear felt safer.

Q: I’ve noticed a new vehicle parked in the facility parking lot. Did Meadowlark Hills purchase a new bus?  

We did recently purchase an additional bus. The purchase was made in response to the increase in outings, especially in the Healthcare Households and due to the age of our other buses. The bus has capacity for 12 people, including two places for wheelchairs. We now have a total of three buses. This was a great question to remind me of how wonderful our Transportation Team is! They are hardworking, responsive and enjoyable to work with.

Q: How does the Farmer’s Almanac predict the weather?

I have wondered that myself. The Farmers’ Almanac weather predictions are based on a secret mathematical and astronomical formula. Developed in 1818, by David Young, the Almanac’s first editor, this formula takes many factors into consideration, including sunspot activity, moon phases, tidal action, and more. This carefully guarded formula has been passed along from calculator to calculator and has never been revealed.

Congratulations to Meadowlark Hills for its Festival of Trees entry! Not only did our tree win the “Mayor’s Choice” award, it also received the “People’s Choice” award. This is an especially high honor because the trees were all voted on by the entire community. Undoubtedly, the most popular tree in the show! The trophies can be found outside of the Sales and Resident Services office suites.
