Bereavement Support Groups
Mid-October—November 2011 in Wolfeboro NH
January—February 2012 in Laconia and Center Harbor NH
Each group consists of a series of 1 1/2 hour meetings held for 6 weeks.
The purpose of the Support Group is to give people the opportunity to learn about the
grief process, discuss their own particular ways of copying with loss, and to gain the
support of others in safe and caring ways. Although grief is a unique experience through
which each person finds his or her own way, there are common threads we all share when
facing this experience.
Pre-Registration is Required

FLU SEASON IS FAST APPROACHING
Protect Our Residents
Protect Your Families
Get Your FLU Shot!!
The flu is a contagious respiratory illness
caused by influenza viruses. It can cause
mild to severe illness. The main way that
influenza viruses are thought to spread is
from person-to-person in respiratory droplets of coughs and sneezes. Be sure to
continue proper hand washing and cover
up when you cough and/or sneeze.
As a reminder to all of our wonderful families and visitors…..
PLEASE DO NOT VISIT IF YOU ARE SICK
Our residents have a higher risk of getting the flu so we ask for your
cooperation with this matter.
Thank You Patti Cain RN, Infection Control

Woman’s Bible Study
Starting November 14th the Woman’s Bible study will be looking at the book of Revelations
written by the apostle John. Revelations is a warning to Christian who have grown apathetic
and an encouragement to those who are faithfully enduring the struggles in this world. It reassures us that good will triumph over evil, gives us hope as we face difficult times, and gives
guidance when we are wavering in our faith. Christ’s message to the church is a message of
hope for all believers in every generation.
Please join us Mondays in the multi-purpose room at 3:30. If you would like to change the
day and time we can discuss it.
Hope to see you there.
We are looking for volunteers to help us make some new
clothing protectors for our residents.
If you have some time available to assist with this project
please contact Sandi McKenzie.
Veterans were recognized and given flags during a ceremony at
Mountain View on November 11th.
