A bucket list dream come true

May 15, 2012

John Cummings, ERH Marketing Manager

 

It’s fun to dream. For some of us, we dream about what we will accomplish once we reach a certain age. Maybeit’s about our kids and giving them opportunities we didn’t get.

For 102-year-old Canterbury Court resident Jo Millhouse, the dream was simple: to ride a motorcyle again.

“I’ve ridden bikes for years,” Jo proudly proclaimed this week. She had ridden many times before – even celebrating her 80th birthday at 80 miles an hour. “I really enjoyed that one,” she said. “I thought then that I’d keep adding one mile per hour in speed every birthday.”

That wasn’t the case this week when she hopped on the bike one more time to celebrate. “I’m not doing 102 miles per hour!”

But Jo still achieved what she set out to do – meet her dream of riding again.

We all should have dreams. Will we achieve them? Who knows. but isn’t it great to know you might just do it – even at 102 years old?

What are your dreams?

Away we go!

We’re off and running!

Episcopal Retirement Homes is starting a blog … and it is off to an amazing and awesome start! Just getting a look at all we can do here is wonderfully refreshing.

Of course, as we continue to build this presence we will look to you, our readers, for input on potential topics. We’ll certainly talk about what’s happening around the ERH family of communities, in-home and community-based services. But we also want to focus on the people that make our communities and services so terrific in the first place. After all, they are the heart of who we are!

There will be other items of interest, too, based on your feedback. Do you want to read about care options? What about what’s going on with something like Alzheimer’s or dementia care? Would tips on staying active and healthy at home be of interest?

Please let us know using the comments feature here, or email us at erhmarketing@erhinc.com. After all, this blog is for you! We look forward to talking with you in the months and years to come!
