Monthly Marketing Update
- November 2020

As you plan your marketing budget for 2021, please make sure that Retirement Connection and are included in your plans, and help us spread the word! We only print 1 time each year- So please don’t forget us in your budget planning. Although our lives have been a bit on hold during this pandemic, many seniors are actively looking for care, housing and service. As their needs adapt and change- make sure you remain front and center.  Retirement Connection remains the primary resource in the community and we now have a second resource for families to search local housing and care availability at  Log in each day to search and connect with providers. If you have not searched recently- take a look and make sure to visit those providers with photos to view their profiles.

I am also excited to share that in December we are facilitating a monthly phone call with hospital case managers from Asante and Mercy with providers. The goal is to facilitate more smooth transitions of care to and from the hospital. Please mark your calendars each month for the 2nd Tuesday each month at 9:30am. Please join us on zoom-

Last week we had “election day” that became election week- I hope we find ourselves moving forward as positive as possible. Just because some of us disagree, we do not need to be disagreeable. No matter who our elected officials are, there is still so much that we have control over in providing care and services to our seniors and with our own families. Don’t be discouraged by the negativity- look for the helpers!

Nuggets of Knowledge


“You can disagree without being disagreeable.”
- Ruth Bader Ginsburg

With the election results looming, this seemed like a fitting reminder for all of us. We do not need to agree, we don’t even need to debate, but we should try for a bit more civility. I don’t agree with most of my family on political issues, but that does not mean that I don't love them. We can still value the person, and dissent with an opinion.

However, I do wish people would fact check what they post- but that is a meme for a different time. :)
