Nurses Notes


I hope this finds you all safe and well and settling into your Fall routines. We continue to be happily busy with our health and wellness activities here THE Public Health Nurses’ Office @ 27 Francis Farm Road. Of note, the Wellness Clinic will be moving from Wednesday to Monday from 11am-1pm, starting in October. The clinic coincides with Gert’s Café Luncheon which starts at 12n on Mondays. The lunch is delicious, nutritious and open to all for $3. (You should also come by on Wednesdays for pie and ice-cream @ 12n, the pie is from Bateson’s Farm and is out of this world!)

But I digress! The Wellness Clinic continues to offer BP and blood glucose (diabetic) screening, as well as help with any health or medication question you may have. And sometimes, one just needs to stop by for a chat! We are in the Senior Center on Mondays, you’ll see us in the corner!

We are now offering a Bereavement and Caregiver Support Group every Wednesday @1pm @ the Senior Center. Everyone is welcome.

Also, just as a reminder, if you need us to visit you or a loved one at home, just give us a call at 508-252-5947 ext. 3127. We can check in on you, help you with a health or medication issue, follow up with you as visiting nurse services conclude or bring vaccinations to your home if you have trouble getting to the clinics. We can also provide transportation to our senior center for their activities or to visit the Wellness Clinics. We’ll take you from door-to-door!

Our next ‘flu clinic is October 11th from 9am-12n, at Anawan Pharmacy, 224 Winthrop St. Rehoboth. Please visit  to book an appointment.

Our 1st Annual Rehoboth Community Health and Wellness Fair will be held here, at 27 Francis Farm Rd. on Saturday October 15th from 9am-3pm. We are so excited to offer this community wide event that features health and wellness information from the nurse’s office, the police, fire, and the emergency medical services personnel. We will be providing health and safety information for all age groups, but also fun for all in exploring the police cruiser, fire engine and meeting the police service dog. The goal is to build a relationship with these services, so it’s not as scary in the event any of us need to avail of the services in an emergency. To that end it will certainly be hard to beat Lt. Randy Laravie with his fire engine! He will be here for rides around the farm for our children, both young and old!
