Giving Thanks

There is always a reason to be grateful. 

At this time of year, we are reminded to be thankful.

For our health. For our families.
For the ability to do work that makes a difference.

As you know, it's not always easy—especially in uncertain times.

However, there is always a reason to be grateful.
Lives do change. Successes do happen. Hopes are achieved. 

If you need a little inspiration to reinvigorate your spirit, look no further: this issue is packed with stories of courage, creativity, perservance, and resilience. 

We hope you are buoyed by these stories, just like us. When we all work together toward a more hopeful and healthful future, amazing things are possible.

Have a wonderful holiday season and let us know if we can be of service. 

All the best, Faith Richie, SVP of Development, Telecare
