Wiser Home Care Participates in the 2014 Pierce County Alzheimer’s Event

Wiser Home Care Services was proud to be a part of the 2014 Pierce County Alzheimer’s Caregiver Conference on September 25, 2014.

We were able to meet a number of family caregivers who give of themselves selflessly and take care of their loved ones on a daily basis. Also, we enjoyed meeting other professionals who work to provide services to caregivers, as well as those suffering with the disease within our community.

We enjoyed watching the film produced by Ann Hedreen, the keynote speaker. It was her mother’s journey that her family took through the diagnosis and living with Alzheimer’s.
We were able to have two of our supervisors and one lead caregiver also attend the conference. I believe they enjoyed themselves and came away with knowledge they didn’t have before. I know they came away with some gifts, two of them won door prizes. One prize was a signed copy of Ann Hedreen’s new book, which I’m sure all of us will enjoy reading.

We look forward to being a part of many more events in our community that help build support for our local seniors.

Wiser Home Care Helps Raise Fall Prevention Awareness

Every September, the Gig Harbor YMCA hosts a “Fall Prevention Event”.  The large gym was quite busy with people inquiring about home care & other services for themselves, family and friends. Local pharmacies, the Fire Department, & nursing facilities were some of the participants.
        Wiser Care Home Services was pleased to participate in the fall prevention event with an educational booth. Kathryn passed out Wiser Home Care information folders, treats, water bottles,  toy trucks ( a reminder to stay active & play) and personal care bags.  Many questions & answers were exchanged and appointment were set for further assessment.
        Getting the word out about our wonderful options &  how seniors can safely live at home is one of Wiser Home Care’s many goals.
        Thank you to Camille & Doris at Gig Harbor YMCA for letting us be a part of this wonderful day…. And sign us up for the next one!!
We were so focused on fall prevention the only picture we got from the event was the delicious sweets Wiser Home Care provided.

Hot Cars and Ice Bucket Challenges: Wiser Home Care Participates in Community Car Show

Wiser Home Care Services had the pleasure of volunteering at the annual Silver Creek Retirement Community Car Show on August 24th in Puyallup.

It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining as the cars filled the parking lot. A soft mint green 1937 Chevy, a perfect condition white-with-red leather interior 1961 Corvette, & Sheri’s favorite… the royal metallic blue 1967 Chevelle were just a few of the sweet rides that stole the the show. A dozen motorcycles also lined up and faced the crowd.

The Wiser Home Care ladies helped with registration & the ever popular voting process. Throughout the show, car fans lined up at the Wiser Home Care booth to win prizes and learn about our services. Some brave souls, like Tami from Silver Creek, participated in the “Ice Bucket Challenge” YIKES!! Brrrrr!!!

A BIG thanks goes out to SUNSET CHEVROLET in Sumner, for letting Wiser Home Care arrive in style. Driving a gorgeous, metallic deep red Corvette will put a long lasting smile on any ones face. Thanks Sunset Chev! You rock!

Another great day in the community…can’t wait for the next experience.
