However; when the caregiver does not take time to care the themselves, the stress of caregiving can take its toll. At Interim HeatlhCare, It is part of our mission to care for our patients AND their families.

Educating caregivers on how to participate in the care of our patient is critical to the success of our encounters, but our ability to minister to the needs of the caregiver are equally important.

Please visit the following websites to get advice from the experts on how to care for yourself and your loved one.

Senior Services Levy 2018-2022
Senior Services Levy, 2018-2022
 
• This levy funds Franklin County Senior Options which provides services and
programs designed to help the frail elderly remain safely at home. Services such as
meals‐on‐wheels, transportation to the doctor and emergency response buttons.
 
• Passage of this levy will mean that over 10,000 seniors can be served in 2018
with a 3% increase each year of the levy cycle.
 
• The costs for helping a senior maintain independent living is far smaller than
the costs of institutional or nursing home care.
 
• Growth of this small levy has not kept pace with the growth in the aging
population or the growth in demand for services. This small increase will support
some moderate growth in the number of seniors that can be served during 2018
through 2022.
 
• Given the certainty of increased demand for services, a larger safety net is
needed for our community to avoid seniors getting into crisis.
 
• The current senior services levy will expire at the end of 2017. The senior levy
is the sole funding source for Senior Options. Without passage of this levy, Senior
Options will shut down and access to valuable services will be lost for our seniors.
 
• A request has been made to put a 1.3 mill senior services levy renewal plus a
.45 mill increase on the May 2017 ballot.
 
• This additional increase will cost the owner of a $100,000 home an additional
$15.75 per YEAR.

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for your help with my Mom. She has grown very close to a couple of your care givers. Everyone is prompt and considerate of her needs. It’s comforting to know I have people who I can count on.
