Align Treasure Hunt Press Release

Be on the lookout for treasure in Beavercreek! The legendary pirate, Cap’n Bogey left treasure behind and Align knows where it is.

Align Home Health, Align Life Center, and Wee Care Academy, collectively known as Align, is hosting a treasure hunt in the Beavercreek area. Small treasure chests can be found throughout the area, and once found can be brought to Align at 4114 Mapleview Dr., Dayton, OH 45432 to redeem for $100 cash!

Participants will be able to find clues for the treasure locations on a Facebook group page for Align Home Health, Align Life Center, and Wee Care Academy. Two small treasure boxes filled with golden tokens can be found beginning Friday, May 7th. More treasure boxes will be hidden when the Facebook pages reaches milestones in follower-ship.

Please keep in mind that the treasures will not be placed far off the beaten path, and digging, climbing, or traveling in unsafe areas is not encouraged or required for the treasure hunt. We will not use schools, cemeteries, or playgrounds as hiding locations. All local laws and land management policies apply.

Team Update – 2021.03.29

Hi Team! I wanted to send everyone some quick updates.

Align’s Anniversary

Thursday April 1st, 2021 marks Align’s 6th year in business! To show our appreciation for all that you do and in honor of this milestone:

  • Good Friday Holiday – Align will now be recognizing Good Friday as a paid holiday. For anyone working that day, you will be receiving holiday pay.
  • Retirement Savings Plan – Align is partnering with Fifth Third bank to create an employer matched retirement plan. Details are forthcoming.
  • Daycare Referral Bonus – Align is paying a $500 referral bonus for any new student starting our daycare now through April.

Daycare Naming Contest

Recently we asked anyone on the team for suggestions for a good daycare name that better reflects our educational based curriculum. We receive SOOO many great submissions it made the selection process extremely challenging. In the end we chose one name to rebrand the daycare and a runner up name to be earmarked for a future program within the daycare. We would like to thank Kara S. for “Wee Care Academy” and Thai P. for “Little Hands of Wonder”! Both will be receiving the $100 bonus! Thanks for your great suggestions.

In the days ahead, the Align Team Daycare will rebrand to Wee Care Academy using the Little Hands of Wonder program to enrich the lives of our patrons.

Tomorrow, 3/30 is the LAST DAY for the food drive if you would like to participate. Remember, anyone who participates gets entered for a $50 gift card. Information can be found HERE.

From the Nurse

When doing care notes, please remember to sign “Yes” to companionship on every visit that you saw your clients and sign off on EVERY visit.  Your signature is confirmation that the service is complete and is required in order to get compensated for the visit.  Overall, our team is doing a great job with care notes so please keep up the good work.

A Message of Hope

As more Americans get vaccinated, the days left of this pandemic are numbered.  Things are getting better.  Keep up the good work by continuing to wear your PPE, wash your hands frequently, and get vaccinated when able.

Do your part to end this pandemic.

Vaccine Roundtable Discussion

The State of Ohio in conjunction with Ohio Department of Aging (ODA) and Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) is hosting several roundtable discussions to answer questions about the vaccine. To participate, just register for a section by clicking HERE. No topic is off the table.

A Message of Hope

Members of the team have reported something interesting after receiving the vaccine. People are reporting incidents of doing everyday things like standing in line at the grocery and no longer being scared that they will contract COVID-19. People are relaying feeling grateful knowing they won’t be bringing home this disease and infecting their children. One individual said that they knew this coming year was going to be better than the last because they had done their part to make it better.

It appears that a side effect of becoming vaccinated is an overwhelming sense of HOPE and GRACIOUSNESS! This feeling is lingering, infectious, and contagious.

Do your part to end this pandemic.

Team Update – 2020.11.12

Hello Team!

Just wanted to take a moment to keep everyone informed.

Top Things to Know

  1. PPE is required, especially masks
  2. Call Align if you have been exposed
  3. Align has PPE available upon request

COVID Update

I want to continue the congratulations of the Align Team for doing a great job with using PPE against the growing number of COVID-19 positive cases. Wearing a mask is not only the most effective way to prevent the spread of infection, it’s the easiest and cheapest way to promote safety for everyone and is REQUIRED.

COVID numbers continue to rise and with a vaccine still not available, please turn to the Ohio Department of Health and the CDC for updated recommendations.

If you start showing symptoms or think you have been exposed, please contact Judy or Kara for assistance. We have resources in place to help you get help.

Masks and PPE

Please reach out for all your PPE needs.  We are doing our best to fulfill each request.  Because PPE is required at all times while providing care, we understand the need and are working with state and local officials to maintain new supplies. Please just ask.

In Closing

With the winter months ahead, know that you have the support of the Align Support Team behind you. Lives continue to be enriched and saved from the work you do. The Align Team are truly the best at what they do each and every day. Thanks to each and every one of you.
