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.

"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.,
