Heal Local - Mendonoma Coast

Community Foundation of Mendocino County
Angel Fund

For the past five years, RCMS has been the recipient of a small Angel Fund block grant from the Community Foundation of Mendocino County.

Monies from the Angel Fund grant are designed to be used to give community residents - most frequently seniors and the disabled - a helping hand-up in the area of healthcare.

An RCMS RN/Case Manager and a member of the RCMS management team review all requests for assistance. Typically grants from The Angel Fund block grant are used to help provide long-distance transportation for out of town medical appointments, purchase of medical support equipment, uncovered prescriptions, etc.

For more information about the Community Foundation of Mendocino County, go to

Requests for assistance through the RCMS Angel Fund grant should be directed to Richard Henrikson, RCMS, RN/Case Manager at 707-884-9069.

Stay healthy this winter

Stay healthy this winter and get a flu shot, if you haven't already done so. Just make an appointment at either our Gualala or Point Arena health center and get vaccinated against this serious and potentially deadly disease. And, if it is has been a while since you had a medical or dental check-up with your RCMS provider, now is a great time to schedule one.

Thanks to everyone

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to our annual fundraising campaign, now underway. Read more →

Winter Home Safety Check

Now is the perfect time to do a winter home safety check. If you use a fireplace, have a professional inspect it for soot or creosote build-up. Check that your smoke detectors are in working order, and clean or replace dirty furnace filters. Have flashlights and batteries on hand, ready for power outages that you know will come with our winter storms, and make sure that at least one of your land line telephones is an old fashioned, non-electronic phone that will work without electricity. This is especially important if you are living alone.
