The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard about in-home health care, during their Tuesday luncheon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.

Nancy McGeath of Springfield, representing Christian Horizon Living's Carelink in-home health care service, was guest speaker and highlighted some of the services her agency provides.

Christian Horizon Living was founded in 1962, and its Carelink division was founded in 1999, serving some 18 states.  Carelink's main goals are to provide in-home health care to allow patients' personal freedom, provide companionship, and help with early detection of acute symptoms.

McGeath added that Carelink also reduces stress for the patient and their family, and is an alternative to institutions.

The Taylorville Kiwanis Club reminds the public, that members will be on the streets of Taylorville September 22nd and 23rd asking for donations, and in exchange giving a package of peanuts, during its annual Peanut Days fund-raiser.  Proceeds benefit local Kiwanis programs for children and youth such as Coats for Kids, Kiwanis Park, YMCA and high school scholarships.

The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.  Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.  For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
