News & Information
When it comes to end-of-life care, one conversation can make all the difference. It's not easy to talk about how you want the end of your life to be. But it's one of the most important conversations you can have with your loved ones. For resources to help you get your thoughts together and have the conversation, check out "The Conversation" links on our Resources page.
NEW! Caring for persons with chronic illness is a rewarding endeavor, but often places extreme demands on the caregiver. Area 9 has partnered with Fayette Regional Geri-Psych Services to offer a time of respite for caregivers to refresh mind, body and spirit and learn ways of taking care of themselves. On the first Friday of each month beginning in February 2015, caregivers can enjoy a Relaxation Day from 11:00am-1:00pm at Fayette Regional Care Pavilion in Connersville that includes lunch, paraffin hand dip, back massages and education on stress and tension reduction. To make your reservation, call 765-827-8022.
Area 9 also offers a Caregiver Relaxation Room the first Tuesday of every month from 10:00am-2:00pm or by appointment at the Lamplight Inn at the Leland in Richmond. Available is a massage chair, paraffin hand waxes, and hand massages as well as educational materials, videos, and one on one support for caregivers. For more information, call Rhonda or Terri at 765-966-1795 or 800-458-9345.
