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.

Healthy Habits 2015 meetings start in April

After a brief hiatus during the winter, the first Healthy Habits meeting of 2015 will take place on Wednesday, April 1, at 5:30 p.m. at the Elaine Jacob Center. The meeting topic is Healthy Eating & Active Lifestyle and will include information on health and fitness trends that are currently making the news.

"During 2015 we will look at some of the changing views about healthy living; whether or not coffee is good for you, the re-emergence of "healthy" fats, the power of positive thinking, mindful eating, and so on, and whether these concepts can be incorporated into making smart lifestyle choices," said Trish Miller, RN, Diabetes & Hypertension Educator and one of the Healthy Habits Team leaders.

Healthy Habits meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month, and the hour-long meetings start promptly at 5:30 p.m. at Suite E, the Elaine Jacob Center in Gualala. There are always healthy snacks to share and door prizes, and no reservations are needed.

Healthy Habits is a free program of RCMS. For more information, contact Jacquie Lappé, RN, or Trish Miller, RN, at RCMS, 884-4005, Ext. 139.
