Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans. In all your ways acknowledge HIM and He will make your paths straight.

This past weekend I attended the Caregiver event at Blue Ridge Boulevard Christian Church. About 20 people learned about the services of Hospice Care provided by Omega Health Care in a presentation by Alan Murray. Charles Hughes, the director of Social Services at Liberty Hospital review the importance and wording of Advance Directive for Health Care and the Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Decisions. Kelly Jones with Heart of American Alzheimers Assc. provided an excellent description of Dimential and Alzheimers diseases. She delivered a very informative and comforting word of support.
Two days later, The Shepherd Center sponsored an informational meeting featuring Rev. Dr. Earl Shelp with the Interfaith CarePartners of Houston, Texas. By recruiting and training teams of at least 12 people, congregations can help families by providing supports to keep loved ones in the home. The Shepherd Center is promoting having a ministry like this in the Kansas City area. Congregations that want more information should contact the Sheperd Center.
