Living Wills, Medicare needs discussed at Caregivers meeting

By Linda Waggener

Betty Judd, RN, from Greensburg, and Patricia Harper, RN, from Columbia, presented a free workshop on Living Wills Jan. 4, 2017. It was part of the ongoing Caregivers monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of each month exploring helpful topics for those who care for others.

A Living will is a legal document that contains personal directives, created in advance so that each of us has our wishes known before we could become unable to communicate them for ourselves.

Examples of living wills were provided for those in attendance showing the simple directives necessary to be legal.

The Whitehurst Diaries: Sweater Weather

'Like the competent woman of Proverbs 31, I am not afraid of the snow for my household, having assured myself each year that all who fall within my care are well equipped to brave the weather in warm jackets and gloves, with a special emphasis on the comfort of wooly sweaters.' - SHARON WHITEHURST

SANDERS RIDGE, PELLYTON, ADAIR CO., KY (Sat 07 Jan 2017) - I don't have a digital thermometer that announces the outside temperature in increments of degree. The white dial with its black numerals and slender red needle, mounted beyond the glass of the north-facing kitchen window, is one my father would have recognized. At 6:15 this morning the needle was firmly lodged at 8 F degrees above zero. I eyed the gauge as I moved quietly about the kitchen, chunking wood into the glowing innards of the stove, thawing ice from the outdoor cats' water dish, measuring coffee, warming a blueberry muffin. By 8 A.M. the red needle had barely moved a degree upward. Now, at 9:30, with the sun fully emerged, we have gained 5 degrees from the dawn reading.
