There are a lot of misconceptions about hospice care. Hospice is all about providing care and comfort for both patients and their family. Here are 6 things we think you should know about hospice care and what it does for the patient & their family.
Thanks to Whole Person for providing blood pressure checks today

A great story:
The Weight of the Glass
Once upon a time a psychology professor walked around on a stage while teaching stress management principles to an auditorium filled with students. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the typical “glass half empty or glass half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, the professor asked, “How heavy is this glass of water I’m holding?”
Students shouted out answers ranging from eight ounces to a couple pounds.
She replied, “From my perspective, the absolute weight of this glass doesn’t matter. It all depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute or two, it’s fairly light. If I hold it for an hour straight, its weight might make my arm ache a little. If I hold it for a day straight, my arm will likely cramp up and feel completely numb and paralyzed, forcing me to drop the glass to the floor. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it feels to me.”
As the class shook their heads in agreement, she continued, “Your stresses and worries in life are very much like this glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and you begin to ache a little. Think about them all day long, and you will feel completely numb and paralyzed – incapable of doing anything else until you drop them.”
The moral: It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses and worries. No matter what happens during the day, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the night and into the next day with you. If you still feel the weight of yesterday’s stress, it’s a strong sign that it’s time to put the glass down.
Happy Mother’s Day

170 years ago, May 1, 1849, at a special meeting of the Board of Trustees, John Corby was awarded a permit to operate a ferry with John Curd and Julius C. Robidoux.
This $15 permit allowed them to transport California gold seekers across the Missouri River for the period of one year.
The next decade would see thousands of pioneer emigrants cross from St Joseph into the wild west; seeking their fortunes.
They each acquired a sizable fortune for themselves in the process.
I haven't found the records that show how long this trio operated the ferry.
A few new Uno players today!

Today she hung around to provide a little music to the Day of Prayer program
Reason number 283 that I love my seniors!
Ms. D came to me at lunch and said “Today is National Day of Prayer and this country needs prayer “
What would you like to do? I asked.
“Well at least put it on the activity board to remind people to pray” she said. Ten minutes of brainstorming, google search for National Day of Prayer history, call to another resident she described as “ a good pray-er! I’ve heard him and he is a Godly man”
Two hours later-Pop-up activity ❤️it
And what a great compliment- Godly man and a great Pray-er! Not to mention a good crowd
Sorry but just can’t help have to share every angle!!!!
