Meals on Wheels / Home Instead Senior Care Foundation® Pledge

Almost 75 percent of the people surveyed said they only sit down for a family meal with senior loved ones for special occasions, events or holidays.

To encourage families to make time for these meals, the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation® will donate $1 to Meals on Wheels America (up to $20,000 total through July 31, 2015) for each person that commits to regularly scheduling family dinners at SundayDinnerPledge.com.
Pledging to have a sit-down dinner with loved ones will help to ensure other seniors will have a quality meal through the Meals on Wheels program.

Flu Season & Vaccination Locations BCPH

Lab Confirmed Flu Cases Mark The Start of Flu Season in Butte County | Butte County Public Health

Flu activity is on the rise in Butte County with more than 16 lab confirmed flu cases reported by local healthcare providers. Since December 1st, severe flu cases have led to four hospitalizations in Butte County. The flu vaccine is still available at many pharmacies and clinics.
Flu season typically peaks in January or February and can last as late as May. For millions of people each year, symptoms of flu illness can vary from mild to severe, including: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle aches, and fatigue. Severe flu complications can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Flu viruses are constantly changing from one season to the next. Vaccines released for this year’s flu are not as well matched as vaccines in the past, but are still an important step in protecting you and your loved ones and may reduce the severity of flu symptoms.
http://flushot.healthmap.org

In addition to getting vaccinated, you and your family can help prevent spreading the flu by:
- Avoiding close contact with sick people
- Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze
- Washing your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- NOT touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Staying home from work or school if you have flu like symptoms

 

A free flu vaccination clinic will be offered by the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) on Tuesday, January 27, from 2:00-4:00pm at 202 Mira Loma Drive in Oroville.
No appointments are necessary. Vaccines are available for people 6 months of age and older, including pregnant women. Both the flu shot and nasal spray vaccine (FluMist) will be available.

Become a Foster Parent

CHANGE A LIFE, BECOME A FOSTER PARENT!

Mountain Circle sincerely appreciates the amazingly generous Butte County Foster Parents!

There is no better gift to give a child than a family. With the holidays approaching there are many children in Butte County in need of warmth, love, shelter and a caring environment.
In Butte County alone there are over 500 children in Foster Care. Many of these children sadly are placed in homes outside of their community because there aren’t enough foster parents in Butte County. DREAMS don’t work unless you DO, adopt a child to make their dreams come TRUE!

If you are interested in learning more about becoming a foster parent please call     1-844-540-8618 or you can also visit http://www.mountaincircle.org/adopt.htm  Don’t forget to check Mountain Circle’s daily updates posted on our Facebook page! Mountain Circle can help you become a certified foster parent, we can answer any questions and teach you ways to help children in need.

For further information, contact: Rachel Goings, Assistant Development Director | 1-844-540-8618 | rgoings@mountaincircle.org
