Happy Summer ❤️

A Note From Sue

A note from Sue

Hi friends,
I hope you are all doing great and enjoying your summer!
August has been a busy month with balancing work and a vacation! I had the opportunity to do a boat trip with my husband and explore the beautiful waters of Lake Huron (we were up in the Mackinaw area). It was so nice to be up north and around folks that are enjoying life and leaving all the news at home.
How amazing it was to be in the great outdoors soaking in lots of sunshine and feeling so joyful. Vacations allow us to relax our minds. For me, they also allow getting lots of exercise, enjoy nature, and eat the things I love – #1 being ice cream! 😊


Stuff To Do In the Community:

Forgotten Harvest is looking for volunteers for a variety of assignments this month. If you are interested in volunteering, please click HERE for more information.
~ Enjoy the Fall colors at The Henry Ford House in Grosse Pointe. You can visit the grounds for only $5.00 each for the whole day. What a great thing to do with your family. Make a picnic, bring a blanket and hang out by the beautiful Lake St. Clair. You can watch the water and boaters go by and see the beautiful gardens.

~ These are great links to use for all kinds of upcoming events:
~ Take a stroll down memory lane at the world-famous Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village.
~ Check out Belle Isle and all it has to offer!!  A stroll on the waterfront or a leisurely drive around the island does a soul good. Nothing like fresh air and beautiful fall colors to make us feel alive! Visit a Cider Mill and eat lots of yummy donuts and cider.

Are you getting enough nature time?

Enjoying the great outdoors is truly one of the nicest things we can do for ourselves.  Taking a walk or sitting on a bench and taking in the beautiful scenery is so good for our souls and wellbeing.

It is important to schedule time to get out and partake in nature and to move our bodies around. The older I get the more I feel the importance of moving and getting outside to ensure my overall happiness and wellness.

Something I started last year, and people love is doing walks instead of meeting for coffee. It is a great way to visit with friends and enjoy being outside.

For Seniors getting outdoors gives freshness to everyday life. It also helps seniors to increase their physical and mental levels, which can help ward off disease, loneliness, immobility, and cognitive decline.

I offer companion service to seniors who would like to have a friend to do things with.

So here’s to loving ourselves and making time to enjoy the beautiful earth that God has given us!

For more information on senior companion services:


August has been a fun month with clients, networking and volunteering at the Helm Senior Center in Grosse Pointe. Last week I had the opportunity to play Euchre at the Helm with 3 seniors. We laughed and had fun playing!
I attended a great senior provider event at the Henry Ford House in Grosse Pointe. It is truly amazing how much work they have done there. They have a new informational building with lots going on and a beautiful view. The parking is now inside the house so most folks don’t have to shuttle back and forth anymore. 😊
