  • Sandy Tryon has been working on the 2018 ADRC official resource guide. It should go to print later this week. She is working with a company in the Oshkosh area to get this project completed.
  • There is money left over in the 2017 budget. If the money is not used, it’s returned to the state. Ms. Tryon will request that this money be used to install a hearing loop in the larger conference room. Since some clients have hearing impairments, this would be a great resource to have.
  • An $8,000 grant has been awarded for the Stepping On program. There are classes scheduled.
  • Healthy Living with Diabetes is going well. Additional people will be trained to lead this program.
  • Ms. Tryon attended Alzheimer’s Day at the Capitol in Madison at the end of February.
  • If a dementia grant is awarded, Ms. Tryon would be able to hire a full-time specialist, as the grant would cover the cost of the employee for two years.
  • The city of Waupun received a $15,000 Aging in Place grant.
  • Ms. Tryon was asked to have a table at the Fairgrounds on April 11, in conjunction with National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. This is a family fun night sponsored by Fond du Lac Victim Witness Services.
  • Both the Waupun Senior Expo and the family and professional caregiver conference are scheduled on Sept. 27. Waupun Senior Expo will be held at Central Wisconsin Christian School, and the caregiver conference will be at the Fond du Lac Holiday Inn.
