    Becoming a foster parent can change a child’s life

    May is National Foster Care Month, a time to come together on behalf of the nearly 7,000 Kentucky children who are living in foster care because their own families are in crisis. This month provides an opportunity to thank foster families who provide homes and love to children who need them. Foster parents often become a substitute family for the youth regardless of how long they stay – be it an hour or a lifetime.

  • Recognizing those who provide care

    How fitting it is the beginning of National Nursing Home Week is Mother’s Day, May 12. What an opportunity to remember our most cherished loved ones. Mother’s Day is one of the busiest and most exciting days of the year for nursing homes. It is a day when family members make a point to visit, share memories and appreciate the people who have impacted their lives.

    I am proud of our Kentucky facilities as they prepare to make sure residents enjoy every moment with their families on this special day.

    Dear People of Radcliff,

  • Prescriptions for success

    ISSUE: Connecting government agencies with the public

    OUR VIEW: Benefits all

    The national Office of Drug Control Policy is making a local impact. Grants totaling $300,000 are to be distributed over three years to agencies in seven regions of Kentucky to combat substance abuse in those ages 12 to 25.

    Locally, that means Communicare is administering money to be used by local law enforcement agencies to keep unused prescription drugs out of the wrong hands and out of water supplies.
