Hey guys, Valerie V Show and in one second we’re going to talk about all the marketing opportunities for your home care business in the month of May, coming in one second.
Hey, guys. Valerie V Show. Today we are going to talk about all the marketing opportunities that you have in the month of May and there are many. First of all, Mother’s Day is coming up. Anyway you can work in some Mother’s Day celebrations with your home care marketing. That would be totally awesome of course. How about flowers for the ladies of a local nursing home? Maybe just one tulip, one daisy or one rose or something like that, something you can afford that’s easy. You can drop them off. You can ask in advance of course if you can hand those out. Mother’s Day celebrations at nursing homes are always a great time. Assisted living facilities even independent retirement communities get out there and celebrate that Mother’s Day.
Also May is Older American’s Month so anything you can do in the month of May to celebrate Older American’s Month is awesome.
Okay, now we’re going to go to my screen and we’re going to look at all the rest of the health care celebrations for the month of May. This should give your home care agency lots and lots of reasons to stop by and say hello. Okay, May is Arthritis Awareness Month, Better Hearing and Speech Month, Food Allergy Action Month, Global Employee Health and Fitness Month, Youth Traffic Safety Month, Health Vision Month, Hepatitis Awareness Month, Mediterranean Diet Month, drop off a pineapple, Melanoma Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month, Asthma and Allergy Awareness, High Blood Pressure, Mental Health Month, Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention, Physical Fitness and Sports, Stroke Awareness Month, National Teen Pregnancy Month might not fit in with your home care agency. Old American’s Month, Preeclampsia Awareness Month, Ultraviolet Awareness Month.
We have some weeks and days to note so of course May sixth through twelfth is not only National Hospital Week but it’s also National Nurses Week so great opportunity for you to stop by all week long and celebrate with nurses. North American Occupational Safety and Health Week, Alcohol and Drug Related Birth Defects Week, Stuttering Awareness Week, sort of what I’m doing right now. Neuropathy Awareness Week, Women’s Health Week, Health and Safe Swimming Week, all celebrated in different weeks through the month of May.
Okay, days to note. World Hygiene Hand Day on the fifth. The tenth, National Children’s Mental Health Awareness. May twelfth Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Awareness Day. May eighteenth, HIV Vaccine Awareness Day. May 19, National Asian and Pacific Islander HIV AIDS Awareness Day, May 20, Autoimmune Autoinflammatory Arthritis Day. May 25th Don’t Fry Day. Eat healthy. May 25th Heat Safety Awareness Day. National Senior Health and Fitness Day on the 30th and No Tobacco Day on May 31st.
Those all sound awesome so you have lots and lots of information here and things to choose from. I got this from hospitals.healthgrades.com. If you just type it and search for health care celebrations May 2018 you will find tons. Tons of opportunities for you to stop by those direct referrals sources and say hello and tons of opportunities for you to use that information on your website.
Okay so that’s our Think About It Thursday edition. Get out there in the month of May and start celebrating. Start finding reasons to stop by and see those direct referral sources. We’ll see you for Freestyle Friday. Bye.
