Allendale Member Sought for Worth County Care & Rehab Board

An Allendale member is being sought to serve on the Worth County Care & Rehab Board. Interested parties must reside in either Smith or North Allen (Denver) Township. If interested, parties may contact either Administrator Bev Miller or board members Scott Houk, Susan Gladstone Tucker, Jeff Thummel, Jim Larson, or Suzi Spainhower.

In addition, the positions of board members Scott Houk and Susan Gladstone Tucker are up for reelection. Houk’s seat covers Greene (Oxford) and East Union (Isadora) Townships. Tucker’s covers South Allen (Denver) and Middlefork (Worth) Townships. Election notices will run in next week’s Sheridan Express. The election for those seats is April 2017.

The facility currently has had a census of 20 residents and one Medicare Part A customer. A drop in residents down to 14 caused alarm at one point earlier this year, but the census has since recovered.
The facility participated in the recent Worth Treatin’ celebration and had 196 kids stop by. There were other trick or treaters coming by on Halloween Night and residents handed out candy.

Administrator Bev Miller reported that the facility plans to do fill work on the west side of the building.

A holiday dinner is scheduled for December 4th this year.

The facility is working with the VA so that they can get paid when they accept a VA patient.
