Monthly Marketing Update
- January 2021

I just finished reading “Mindset” by Carol Dweck, which offered a fresh outlook as I start 2021. I want to foster a mindset that sees opportunities for growth, rather than the fear of failure. We can all chose to see what is possible rather than the fixed limits. My team and I often comment that we can find a way just as easily as we find an excuse. Why do we give ourselves an excuse? I challenge you this year to just find a way, and do that thing you have been thinking about.

We are starting to collect the ads for our next Puget Sound edition. The gude continues to grow with every edition over the past 5 years, and I am excited to be working with so many new sponsors/advertisers that have reserved their space already. During the past year, our guide and websites offered valuable resources to families that really needed a safe harbor in the storm. Thank you to every sponsor that spent their marketing dollars with us and allowed us to provide a comprehensice resource to families. Please return the favor and refer to these providers whenever possible, and let them know you saw them in the guide.

For 2021 we will be investing more time and revenue into our website ranking and social media ads for both and We already have a pretty robust website and have made alot of improvements the past few months, but there is more work to be done to bring it to the next level. Now is the time! We will also expand the case manager Transition meetings to additional hospitals and increase engagement between case managers and our sponsors with these calls. Together we can solve some of the basic barriers that prevent us all from providing the best care to our seniors and their families.

Nuggets of Knowledge


"What would you attempt to do, if you knew you could not fail?” - Robert Schuller

Have you noticed the little dare devils children can be, seemingly “fearless”? The possibilities are so much more attractive than considering the fall. Watching my son on his skateboard is both terrifying, as well as inspiring as he repeatedly dusts himself off. Why can’t we all recapture that feeling of possibility, what really is the worst that will happen? Take a new chance in 2021 and try something new. Feel the fear, but do it anyway. But only listen to the positive self talk this time!
