The Fort HealthCare Faith Nurse Program aims to assist congregations in improving the spiritual health of its members and providing options for reaching out in service to others in the community. Participating churches, nurses and interested individuals work together with Fort HealthCare to provide specific resources, education and support to the Faith Nurse.
The next meeting is set for Thursday, August 18 at 6:30 p.m. in the First Floor Classroom at Fort Memorial Hospital. The topic will be “Gearing up for Fall.” Guest speakers include Denise Grossman, elderly benefits specialist for Jefferson County Aging and Disability Resource Center and Jessica Rutter, patient financial advocate at Fort HealthCare.
Grossman and Rutter will discuss community and hospital benefits available for those in need of resources like heat, food, phone service, prescription medications, and Medicare assistance. Further, the evidence-based fall prevention program, Stepping On, offered through the State of Wisconsin and Fort HealthCare will be unveiled.
Anyone interested in any aspect of the Faith Nurse program is welcome to attend. Complimentary refreshments provided.
