CALLING ALL NURSES
The Community of St. Benedict’s is interested in starting a Parish Nurse Ministry. By attempting to coordinate parish and community health resources this ministry would help meet the general health needs of the parish. The goal is to foster our community’s wellness in physical, social and spiritual needs by way of education and support. If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Carol at 633-1693.
As part of our shared Parish Nurse Ministry with St. Leo’s a special 6-week educational program entitled “Powerful Tools for Caregivers” will begin May 8th and run through June 12th from 6:30 to 9 pm at St. Leo the Great Church, 885 Sweet Home Road in Amherst. Cost is $25.00. Pre-registration is required. The fee includes The Caregiver Handbook and the cost is covered for Independent Health and Blue Cross/Blue Shield of WNY members. This program is designed to provide you with the tools you need to take care of yourself. Topics to be covered include: Reducing stress, improving self-confidence and increase your ability to make tough decisions
