Caring For Our Community Parish Nursing Program

birdiesIn the fall of 2017, Christian Care established a partnership with UnityPoint Trinity Parish Nursing & Health Ministry to offer on-site basic preventative healthcare for individuals and families utilizing our community meal site. Rhonda, our parish nurse, is on-site from 11:00am to 1:00pm every Wednesday. She can offer medical assessments, blood pressure screenings, education on health, wellness, medication, and provide referrals. Designed to improve the quality of life and enhance the impact of healthcare needs for low-income individuals and families, Rhonda’s services are open to the public and anybody is welcome.
