Grant County Community Health Council meeting, 091514, part 3

Editor's Note: This is the final in a three-part series covering the Grant County Community Health Council meeting on Monday, Sept. 15, 2014.

Terry Anderson, co-chairwoman of the Grant County Community Health Council, chaired the meeting. Sector reports continued, with staff reports and public input following.

Alcorn for her senior sector report said Silver Adult Care Services would launch its pilot program for senior respite care at the Silver Senior Center this month. "We are looking for seniors and volunteers. We have no adult day care in the community. It is becoming a greater issue, as we have 1½ times the average number of those over the age of 65 years in our community. There could be an estimated 900 having dementia issues in the community. Those served will come by word of mouth or referred out by a medical service provider."-- Continue reading

Grant County Community Health Council meeting, 091514, part 2

Editor's Note: This is the second in a three-part series covering the Grant County Community Health Council meeting on Monday, Sept. 15, 2014.

Terry Anderson, co-chairwoman of the Grant County Community Health Council, chaired the meeting. She called on members to report on their various sectors.

Armando Amador of the veterans sector reported he made a presentation at the Veterans Affair Interim Legislative Committee, which was held in Silver City. "We have been pushing for a veteran center here for traumatic-brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. We have only one service officer to take care of four counties. We asked for at least two service officers, so people don't have to wait for hours. We also asked for specialty clinics to offer services to veterans. If we have people who can provide specialty services, bring them to our southwest area. We have at least 3,000 veterans signed up at our small veterans' center. We suspect there are 6,000-7,000 more who have no benefits. We still find World War II veterans without benefits."-- Continue reading
