Award Guidelines

1. They volunteer in the community (10 Points)
Seniors have a reputation for being reliable and skilled volunteers in their community, helping others, their families, volunteering in schools, churches, hospitals, with fund raisers. These are just a few examples of the many fine ways seniors volunteer their time helping others.

2. They share their knowledge with others (10 Points)
Senior citizens have a lifetime of knowledge and those who share it in helpful, creative, and inspirational ways are truly outstanding seniors.

3. They promote an active lifestyle and are passionate about what they do. (10 Points)
Sometimes it isn’t enough just to do things. Passion is contagious and there are active seniors with passion in Fairfield County. Inspiring others is indeed worthy of an outstanding senior award.

4. They smile and they spread the joy of helping others (10 Points)
A senior can be an advocate, a volunteer, a fountain of knowledge and have tons of passion. But the single, most important criteria for being a truly outstanding senior is to be genuinely warm and generous of spirit.

5. They are active advocates for seniors and others ( 10 Points)
There are many professionals in the field, but outstanding seniors take it upon themselves to speak out for their fellow seniors and others in need.

Aberdeen, South Dakota – Primrose Cottages located at 1518 Meadowbrook Court, Aberdeen, SD has announced they will now specialize entirely in memory care services. Prior to the change, Primrose Cottages also offered assisted living services to residents who had not been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia related conditions.

“Our new focus on memory care is very exciting,” says Primrose Cottages Nurse Manager Kayla Kirnan. “This gives us the opportunity to personalize the care we provide to meet the needs of those with memory loss.”

Primrose Cottages will continue to offer respite care services. Respite services are utilized by many individuals who are recovering from a recent surgery, illness, or injury and are not able or ready to return home. Caregivers also take advantage of respite services when they are in need of a break from caring for their loved one or are going out of town for a few days.

A respite stay at Primrose Cottages includes: a fully furnished apartment, 24-hour staff assistance and emergency call system, scheduled transportation, medication management, housekeeping and laundry, three meals per day, and daily activities.
