The beginning of spring is a time to celebrate what’s fresh and new at Glacier Hills. We welcome new Board Members for terms beginning April 1st. There are new faces on the Foundation Board that you will see highlighted in this edition as we welcome broader resident representation in the Foundation’s work.
The Foundation has been very busy in the month of March supplementing the capital budget of Glacier Hills with an ambitious campaign to Keep the Wheels Turning! Thank you to all the generous donors who participated and made this campaign a huge success!
As we enjoy spring and the warmer weather I want to take a moment to recognize that June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Building awareness is the best way to prevent abuse and ensure that elders, families and caregivers have the support they need. For more information please see our website or call (734) 712-7774.
Early in March I had the opportunity to spend time with small groups of residents at Glacier Hills to share where we are in the process with the Trinity transaction. This also gave residents time to ask questions regarding this topic and other topics related to their lives here at Glacier Hills. I fully expect the Board of Directors to make a decision on this matter sometime between now and the end of June 2016. Much time and research is going into the process of considering becoming a part Trinity Senior Living Communities. If the alignment is approved, I am committed to remain in place over the next twelve months to help guide the transition. More importantly, all of the Glacier Hills Inc. Board Members have agreed to complete their terms on the Board over the next several years. I want to thank everyone involved for their thoughtful time considering all aspects of this huge endeavor. Please know we continue to welcome all questions and comments on this possible change.
I believe Glacier Hills has much to appreciate from its great 40+ year history, but it is also a very exciting time to think about the future and what trails the amazing staff and residents will blaze down the road. Thank you for being part of our journey!
