Several weeks ago I started a Facebook Group called Senior Living Professionals. (We would love to have you join if are looking for an online community of passionate senior living leaders). My friend and collaborator on a number of projects, Denise Boudreau-Scott, has started a regular feature she calls “Thank Goodness It’s Monday”. The idea is that you post something good that happened on that Monday or the preceding weekend to kick off your work week with a smile.
I always have something to post, as does she, but we have been a bit surprised how little traction “Thank Goodness it’s Monday” has gotten. I offer that as a backdrop for my conversation with Shaun Anderson, executive director of Sunrise University Park in Colorado Springs, who seems like a “Thank Goodness It’s Monday” kind of a person.
A few weeks ago, we published an article titled “Big Ed Falls In Love With Senior Living at Sunrise,” where I relayed Shaun’s story of Big Ed and how having easy, accurate activity tracking made a remarkable difference in the life of one resident and his family. This was my first introduction to Amazing Accidental Discoveries.”
