Good morning,

I hope you all had a nice and relaxing weekend! Please plan on continuing HDM and/or takeout meals through Labor Day. The health and safety of our seniors is a priority and with positive COVID-19 cases continuing to increase in Iowa we need to protect our most vulnerable.

Thank you and have a great Monday!

**ATTENTION**

Audubon County Memorial Hospital and Clinics encourages community members in Audubon, Brayton, Exira, Gray, Hamlin, and Ross to contact us at (712) 563-5236 if you are someone who might need non-medical assistance and would like to participate in a community assistance program during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our staff and volunteers will provide you a red and green tag. If you need assistance picking up and delivering supplies such as groceries, goods from Caring and Sharing, or other non-medical items, you will place the RED tag on your front window so that it can be seen clearly from the road.
Staff and Volunteers will drive by the homes of those who have signed up to check the tags several times per week. If it is RED, indicating you need some sort of non-medical assistance, an Audubon County Memorial Hospital and Clinics staff member will contact you. If you do NOT need anything, please keep your tag turned to green, indicating you have no needs at that time.
This is a great way for neighbors to check on neighbors and help close the gap of Audubon County residents who may need non-medical assistance. Please call us at (712) 563-5236 with questions, or to sign yourself or a loved one up for this program.

We will be back again tomorrow to feed our homebound and congregate diners. All meals will be delivered by volunteers. Thank you everyone who helps in any way. Our elderly people need to stay safe and fed. Our people will wear gloves and change them after each stop. They knock and hand the meal to them. No one enters the home. We are doing this procedure daily. We are so glad we can still help our people. Stay safe every one. And thank you Nancy Jones and Jean Irlbeck for coninuing to prepare these meals.

Congregate Meals will probably using meals are subject to change during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. There may be days when you have a shelf-life meal, such as sandwich, canned soup, fruit in a cup, crackers etc. Please understand how overwhelming this pandemic is for our homebound as well as the cooking staff at each one of the Meals on Wheels around the 26 to 28 counties under Elderbridge has. We are to receive carry-out containers, sacks and gloves from Elderbridge very soon and we are hoping to get things running better next week. Thank you for you patience during this time.

The ancient Chinese Yin-Yang symbol represents the balance of yin (peacefulness, serenity, acceptance, rest, rejuvenation, roots, tradition) with yang (activity, strength, striving, movement, change, wings, invention, progress). A meaningful and joyful life is to be found in balance.

Be aware of wonder.
Live a balanced life -
learn some and think some
and draw and paint
and sing and dance
and play and work every day some.
- Robert Fulghum

In the midst of movement and chaos,
keep stillness inside of you.
- Deepak Chopra

To go beyond is as wrong as to fall short.
- Confucius

Manage the remarkable balance between acting
from your heart and close to your gifts
with completing the obligations
that your labor and tasks require of you.
Leverage opportunity AND seize joy.
- Mary Anne Radmacher
