Clay County Fair 2018

Valley Care and Rehab's residents had the opportunity to visit the Clay County Fair in July. Three of our residents sent entries to the fair and they all walked away with ribbons! We are very thankful to the board, staff, and volunteers of the Clay County Fair for their kindness in providing Valley Care and Rehab's residents with a private tour and a wonderful experience every year at the fair.

Valley Care and Rehab residents were given the VIP treatment with a private tour of the fairgrounds.

We'll see you again next year at the fair, but in the meantime, please feel free to contact our Activities department if you are interested in learning a new skill from our talented residents, or just drop on in for a visit. Our residents have a lot of wisdom and experience to share!

Relay for Life of Clay County

Valley Care and Rehab is proud to announce that we are participating in the 2017 Relay for Life of Clay County in support of the American Cancer Society! Cancer has touched all of us in some way, and we want to stop this disease in its tracks. Please join our team, Valley's Voice, and others from our community and the region to honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others. We hope to see you there!

Being Mortal: Documentary Screening and Discussion

Hospice of the Red River Valley and other sponsors are presenting a free screening and discussion of the Emmy-nominated PBS Frontline film, “Being Mortal.” Based on the best-selling book by Atul Gawande, MD, this documentary explores the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness and their relationships with the physicians who treat them.

The free film screening and discussion events are being held at various locations between April 27 and May 11, 2017. If you are interested in attending the film screening and taking part in a guided conversation on how to take concrete steps to identify and communicate wishes about end-of-life goals and preferences, please visit Hospice of the RRV's website or call (800) 237-4629, ext. 1525 to register. The event is free, but pre-registration is required.
