April is National Volunteer Month-Spotlight on Collie

Posted on: April 28 2016

This delightful surprise of a bouquet was hand delivered to the Vermont office by Collie Chambers, another exceptional Armistead Caregiver. As we thanked her and oohhed and aahhed over the beautiful bouquet, Collie told us of her latest volunteer effort: Vermont Recycles Flowers, which is a goodwill branch of Chappell’s Florist of South Burlington. Diane, co-owner of Chappell’s, had the wonderful idea of creating new, fresh flower bouquets from “recycled” flowers, that had been left over and then generously donated from events, functions, and retail stores.

April is National Volunteer Month-Spotlight on Barb

Posted on: April 08 2016

When I arrived to my first day at the Armistead Senior Care office, there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers waiting on my desk. It was a lovely gesture by my co-workers and it certainly made me feel both special and welcomed. As the week went on and I was focused on work, my bouquet suffered from a lack of attention on my part. This was unfortunate because my work area is what you see first when entering our office. One of our Caregiver’s walked into the office, took one look at my bouquet and immediately made...
