Homecare professional visits Rhawnhurst NORC

Mem­bers of the Rhawn­hurst Nat­ur­ally Oc­cur­ring Re­tire­ment Com­munity last month wel­comed the CEO of the Pennsylvania Home­care As­so­ci­ation.

Vicki Hoak heads the trade as­so­ci­ation, which is based in Lemoyne, Cum­ber­land County and rep­res­ents more than 500 or­gan­iz­a­tions that provide care and sup­port to people in their homes.

At the April 25 meet­ing, held at Rhawn­hurst Pres­by­teri­an Church, Hoak dis­trib­uted a DVD and book­let titled Bring­ing Care Home Be­gin­ning the Im­port­ant Con­ver­sa­tion About What We Want as We Age.

The DVD and book in­clude in­form­a­tion on ad­vance plan­ning doc­u­ments, power of at­tor­ney, wills, hos­pice, adult day ser­vices, home health, home care, nurs­ing homes, Medi­care and re­verse mort­gages.

To re­quest a copy of the DVD and book, call 1-800-382-1211.

NORC mem­bers left the meet­ing with plants and toi­letry bags donated by JRAid, a pro­ject of Jew­ish Re­lief Agency.

Rhawn­hurst NORC will meet again on Thursday, May 23, at noon at the Con­greg­a­tions of Ner Zedek, 7520 Bustleton Ave.

State Sen. An­thony Wil­li­ams and state Rep. Brendan Boyle will dis­cuss poverty is­sues and le­gis­la­tion that would re­quire the teach­ing of the Holo­caust in pub­lic schools. ••
