Home care services outlined at next SIR #53 meeting

Wednesday September 2017 - to

The services offered by Hired Hands Homecare, a family-owned business operating in Sonoma County for more than 23 years, will be described at the Sept. 27 luncheon of Sons in Retirement (SIR) Branch #53 at Oakmont’s East Recreation Center.

Phyllis Sutter, Sonoma County director for Hired Hands and manager of the Sonoma County Branch, will explore “the big changes the home care industry has endured in the last few years and why.” She also will explain why clients should always use a licensed organization as opposed to private caregivers.

Sutter, who has been in the senior industry for more than 10 years and with Hired Hands for more than five years, said her firm offers assistance in bathing and dressing, meal preparation, transportation and companion care. All Hired Hands caregivers are state-licensed and registered Home Care Aides.

Then, the speaker for the Oct. 25 luncheon will be Megan Easter Dawson, program development manager at Valley of the Moon Children’s Center.

SIR #53 offers a variety of other activities, including a book discussion group which meets at noon on the third Friday of the month. The book for September is The Psychopath Whisperer by Keith A. Kiehl and the book for October is Red Notice by Bill Browder. For more information call Ed Kelleher at 521-9851. The golf program will wind up the year with matches Oct. 3 and 5 and the awarding of year-end prizes. Call Ken Weber at 538-2826 for further information. Those interested in playing poker can call Phil Duda at 293-9988.

SIR Branch #53 meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at Oakmont’s East Recreation Center, 7902 Oakmont Dr. A social hour starts at 11 a.m. with luncheon at noon catered by the Oakmont Market. Any Oakmont man interested in attending this presentation and/or membership should contact Dave McCuan at 539-3028.
