Winter Health and Wellness in Sawyer and adjacent Counties in Wisconsin. We now offer in-home services to seniors in the Sawyer County area in northern Wisconsin. Our mission with this project is to provide those key services that will allow seniors so inclined and able to continue to reside in their homes, rather than being forced to move in with relatives, into group or assisted living or into nursing homes. Essential services such as daily living skills assistance, in-home rehabilitation services to help retain mobility and functioning and family counseling to deal with decision making and other issues often allow continued independence and make a big difference with aging parents, grandparents and relatives. Donna Tveten has spearheaded this project. Interested individuals can contact her at 715-266-2444 or 651-436-3845. Those with service suggestions are strongly encouraged to contact us with their ideas.

"One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors" Plato

"Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship...to restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal priveleges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-american and despotic and have no place in a republic...The constitution of this republic should make special privelege for medical freedom as well as religious freedom." Benjamin Rush, M.D., Signer of the Declaration of Independence, Physician to George Washington. From The Autobiography of Benjamin Rush.
