On July 26 from 9:30am to 11:30am, Ruth’s Promise Adult Day will be starting the first of a four-part summer series called Navigating Dementia Care. Replacing our Time for Two dementia support group, the Navigating Dementia Care series highlights the first addition to the Ruth’s Promise Caregiver Library, the bestsellers collection of Teepa Snow of Positive Approach™ to Care. Terri Ziegler, RN, MSN and Cate McCarty, PhD chose this series because Teepa training has impacted their care approach throughout the years. Each session offers a DVD as well as discussion and application. Sessions will be held in the Prince of Peace Community Outreach Center on the fourth Thursdays monthly through October. This program is free due to the generosity of our sponsors.

Ruth’s Promise Receives $5,000 grant

From Senior Citizens Services, Inc.

Ruth’s Promise recently was awarded a $5,000 grant from Senior Citizens Services Inc. This grant is designated for the Ruth’s Promise Scholarship fund. Senior Citizens Services Inc. recently sold a 200-unit apartment tower and created a charitable foundation with the proceeds from the sale. The foundation is dedicated solely to issuing grants to local agencies that provide care or services to the elderly.

Director Terri Ziegler attended a Grant Award Ceremony on September 27 to receive the check. Ruth’s Promise is excited and grateful to have the opportunity to continue to serve the seniors in our community and their caregivers who might benefit from Ruth’s Promise regardless of their ability to pay.
