Everyone who comes to just friends sets goals for themselves annually.

Some people have goals of remaining at home living independently. Some people want to be more active. Jon’s goal was to lead an activity one time a week.

This week, the activity that Jon lead was called Bengo. We all had a fun time playing this new game and Jon is proud of himself for setting and reaching his goal!

We have the coolest story to share!! 📢

Our local Moose Lodge had a wine and canvas event recently where they did a drawing. The winner of the drawing got to choose a non-profit to donate the proceeds to from the event.

The winner of the drawing was the young man in the picture, Wade, who was attending the event with his Grandpa, Brian Holbrook. At just 12 years old, Wade chose to donate the proceeds to Just Friends!

Thank you, Wade! Your choice means so much to us and all the people at Just Friends!

To you: Just Friends is a place aging people go where they’re safe while their caregivers have respite. A place that passes meds and meals.

To Them: Just Friends is a community where they belong. It’s people who are expecting them and excited when they show up. It’s friendship they’ve longed for. It’s a place to learn something new, a chance to get out of the house (something we all take for granted), a few warm meals with friends and more.

To you - it’s simple. To them - it’s so much.

Thanks for being a part of the “so much”.

What’s one of the most dangerous things for our aging loved ones and friends?

Isolation.

Isolation leads to so many physical and emotional challenges and it just doesn’t have to be that way.

We offer our services on a sliding fee schedule. I’d isolation is threatening the health of someone you love, reach out to us about how they can find community at Just Friends!

Happy Veteran’s Day!

We are thankful for all Veterans and especially those who spend their days with us at Just Friends.

Yesterday, we celebrated with a lunch at The American Legion and The Daughters Of The Revolution brought balloons for them.

Thank you also to one of our wonderful volunteers, Erik, who came Thursday to do a recognition for our Veterans and brought cards from the children at St. John’s Lutheran School!

If you’re coming to our Holiday Paint Party at the end of the month, you will enjoy a snack table courtesy of Journey North Care Management LLC! (And maybe a glass of wine or two, too!)

Thanks to all of your support of the Crew Carwash Fundraiser we did for the month of October, we put an extra $1,600 in our pockets!

These funds will help us provide more people with our services on a sliding fee scale, allow us to do more outings and help us give even more support to caregivers.

We are so thankful for your help in making this a successful fundraiser!

Helping a loved one care for their own personal hygiene can be challenging.

How can you do it with respect, dignity and effectiveness?

Here’s hoping you all have a safe night full of more treats than tricks! 🎃👻

Getting out into the community is good for everyone! It boosts both morale and independence. We enjoyed visiting Apple Works earlier this fall together!

Who do you know who could use some encouragement and companionship to get out and enjoy themselves?

Tell them about Just Friends!

Thank you to our friend Lezlie Ward for guiding us through a Hawaiian-themed chair yoga session yesterday.

It was a good reminder that exercise can be enjoyable!

What kind of exercise are you doing today?

Last year, we renovated our unused kitchen space (we now use the kitchen at MRC) to turn it into The Kussman Art Studio.

Many people at Just Friends enjoy being creative and doing art, so a dedicated art studio was the best use of this space.

As you can see, it gets plenty of traffic!

Here’s hoping your weekend is filled with good friends and good conversation, like every day at Just Friends!

What if there was a way to support Just Friends doing something you already do?

There is!

There are so many reasons people choose an Adult Day Center, but these are just some of them:

1.) the feeling of increased independence

2.) to get physical activity

3.) because it’s a more cost-effective option than private care at home, or a nursing home

4.) for increased safety that comes with staff support and medication help

5.) to have community and friends that are often a missing piece of the puzzle at this stage of life

We recently had an open invitation to participants and caregivers to come and have free professional photos taken. Bob and Jaydee always take the opportunity to get their Christmas Card photos!

We are thankful to have Bob be a special part of Just Friends a few days a week so Jaydee can go to appointments and take care of other important tasks.

Myth: Adult Day Centers take away independence

Truth: with community, exercise and a few accommodations, some people can be more independent through the support of an Adult Day Center than they can be alone.

This weather has inspired us all to get out and about! The Exhibit Columbus installations have been a joy to experience together.
