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.

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

Reduce Your Risk
Know Your Numbers

    Healthy Habits icon

Did you know that more than 1 in every 3 adults has Pre Diabetes? And 9 out of 10 of those adults don't know that they have it?

If you want to find out if you are in this statistic, or just want to be aware of the healthy habits that can prevent you from becoming a statistic, this month's Healthy Habits class is for you! Diabetes & Hypertension Educators, Trish Miller, R.N. & Jacquie Lappé, R.N. will discuss nutrition and exercise habits that are good for the heart, body, and mind and provide opportunities to check your numbers through Pre Diabetic Screenings, Blood Pressure Checks, and Blood Sugar Tests at no cost! Dress in comfortable clothing (i.e. T-shirts) and be sure to layer in case it gets cold. We hope to see you there!

Healthy Habits takes place the first Wednesday of every month at Suite E, Elaine Jacob Center 38550 S. Highway One, Gualala and is a FREE program of RCMS led by Trish Miller, R.N. & Jacquie Lappé, R.N., Diabetes & Hypertension Educators. For more information, call 884-4005, Ext. 139.
