June is National Nursing Assistant Week
It is National Nursing Assistant Week. At MMHD we have an amazing and dedicated staff of CNA’s committed to providing our patients and residents the best care possible.

Nursing assistants/ certified nursing assistants provide hands-on care and perform routine tasks under the supervision of nursing and medical staff.

More than 2.5 million nursing assistants help elderly, frail, or chronically challenged persons live in nursing homes, their own homes, and other long-term care settings. They provide nearly 80 to 90 percent of the direct care received by clients in long-term care facilities, bringing patience, a caring attitude and wisdom to their practices.

Take time to recognize and honor nursing assistants’ hard work and dedication during National Nursing Assistants Week. Thank you for your dedication to quality and compassionate care.

 The Fall River Lions Club Inducts Seven New Members

McARTHUR — The Fall River Lions inducted seven new members and are continuing to push, revive and grow the club.

They will participate in the Mountain Jubilee at the end of this month with a car show and a garage sale. We are trying to raise money to refurbish both parks in Fall River - - the Ball Park and the picnic grounds down by the Pitt River. The storms of this past winter wrecked havoc on both so there is much to be done. We are actively seeking new members to assist with our endeavors in the Fall River Community. In addition we have done eye screenings for the Head Start and Elementary Schools for the past couple of years and we hold the annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Fair Grounds.

The club is looking for new members. If anyone is interested in coming to a meeting, or joining, please call either Tom or Michal Martin - 336- 6643.
