Compassionate Care Circle Introductory Meeting in Provolt

June 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Do you believe in a compassionate community model of care, hope to age in place now
or in the future, and are aware of the reality that affording and finding in-home care
could be challenging in the event of an acute or chronic issue? Perhaps you are a single
person who feels alone and wonders how you will survive, especially living rurally and
totally on your own? Or maybe you have children but don’t want to ‘depend on’ or be a
‘burden to’ them? There are many circumstances which could create the need for help,
from hip replacement to an accident to a death in the family.

Realizing the need in the rural areas of southern Oregon, A Greater Applegate is
teaming up with SOLADA (Southern Oregon Living and Dying Alliance) and a
representative of a local years-long established “care circle” to offer several initial
informational meetings on what it could look like to create local Compassionate Caring
Circles, or “beehives”, that might be able to reduce or delay families or individuals using
paid help or assisted living in the following ways:
• Remaining informed about alternative care options
• Reducing or delaying paid help or assisted living by supporting each other
• Taking actions to establish local reciprocal relationships between friends and
• Preparing for the future from a community approach
• Developing mutual support systems around situations such as:
• medical appointments and transportation needs
• bulk meal preparation and delivery
• combined errands
• coordinated pet care
• patient advocacy

Introductory meetings will be held on June 11 at the Ruch Library Community Room and
June 12th at Dorothy Gale’s Event Center in Provolt. Both meetings will start at 6:30 PM
and end at 8:00. Please arrive to these meetings by 6:15 so that you can settle in and
we can begin on time.

We hope that you will choose to join us and learn about this valuable tool which can
help you and those you love to live supported, age gracefully and die peacefully in the
rural community you love. For questions please call Hayriya Heidi Hansen 541-787-
