Nominating Ruth Adria of the Elder Advocates of Alberta Society for one of the 2017 Ministers Seniors Service Awards

The appointment with Dr. Sholter was productive and I asked about the feet that seemed very crippled. I think I will take her to the University Hospital as well as the podiatrist to see what can be done to support her feet. Seems to me she is getting a blister from the malformed feet. Mum is going to Dr. Hinz next week and the Glenrose the week after. Dad has to have his full medical in preparation for the corneal transplant so things are pretty humming right now.
But I had cookies in the house and mum got the last one. She enjoyed it. She is always a bit low when we go out as she doesn't eat and so I bring a cookie just in case. It is always just in case and she enjoyed the ones I got this time from Sobeys. There was a hint for more of them.
Younger boy got most of his courses for NAIT done. He has one more to sign up on and then I pay for the courses.
I have Elder Advocates of Alberta work to get done this week and then we have our meeting on Monday where I report on the work I've done so things are also busy with the volunteer work. I am going to nominate Ruth Adria for one of the 2017 Minister's Seniors Service Awards. I have a long list of information to provide. It is amazing to me that no one is willing to do this nomination business and that Ruth Adria is so unrecognized but there you go. I am trying to get this work done by this week but it's all up in the air as I am never able to get the nominations done in a timely manner.
Minister’s Seniors Service Awards

2016 Minister’s Seniors Service Awards
In 2016, Alberta Seniors and Housing received 63 nominations: 50 individuals and 13 organizations. All nominees were recognized at Community Celebrations held in Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Red Deer and Whitecourt during Seniors' Week, June 6-12.
Each fall, award recipients are recognized at a ceremony and dinner at Government House. Seniors and Housing Minister Lori Sigurdson has selected the individuals and organizations that will be honoured this year based on the recommendations of a review panel comprised of ministry staff and chaired by Edmonton-Whitemud MLA Dr. Bob Turner. Congratulations to this year’s award recipients!
