You may just see your name!

St. Patrick's Day   is a global  celebration  of Irish culture on March 17. It particularly remembers  St. Patrick, one of Ireland's patron saints, who ministered Christianity/Roman Catholicism in Ireland during the fifth century. St. Patrick died on March 17, 461 A.D. Although not actually Irish himself, he has become an important part of the  Irish  heritage, mostly through his service across Ireland.

Caregiver Profile:
Helga Hammond - 12 years with AHC

"I have found that working for Advanced Health Care is so much better than working in a facility. I feel like I'm listened to and my concerns are always addressed."

When asked what she likes about her job as a caregiver, Helga responded, "I like the clients, the staff, and that I could pick a schedule that works for me. I'm going to retire soon (May 4th) and I'm going to miss taking care of my clients. The families are grateful that I take care of them and that has made it all worth it!"
Educational Opportunity:

Apr 7 – End of Life & Advance Directives: A Medical Perspective

Meridian in Puyallup. Free, no RSVP.  View event flyer . Call the ADRC for details at 253-798-4600.
