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. We are down to the last few weeks to reserve space in the Portland Vancouver edition. We only print 1 time each year- don’t miss the deadline. Although our lives have been a bit on hold during this pandemic, many seniors are actively ooking for carem housing and service. As their needs adapt and change- make sure you remain front and center. Retirement Connection remains the primary resources in the community and now we have a second resource for families to search each day 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.

Today is election day, and no matter who “wins"- 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. :)
