November ceremony is planned The Madison County Nursing Home, located In the former County Tuberculosis Sanatorium on Troy Road, will observe it's first birthday Wednesday, Sept. 13, with a day-long "birthday party", director Floyd Fischer told the Telegraph. An open house will be held all day, Fischer said, with families and friends of nursing home patients being encouraged to visit "at any hour, for as long as they like. We want them to join our little celebration, which is going to include luncheon for patients and guests together — a kind friend has even donated enough chopped sirloin for the occasion to take care of the anticipated party." Fischer explained that while the state requires that visiting hours of 2 to 8 p.m. be posted at nursing homes, "we encourage friends and relatives to visit at any time . . . it's good for the patient and part of our concept of therapy . Wednesday, we'll welcome anyone who'd like to visit the facility." The first patient to enter the "new" nursing home facility last Sept. 13 was a Mr. Duncan, a retired railroad man, Fischer said, ". ... and by noon that day we had moved all 51 patients from the old nursing home into the new facility, in order that the old building once evacuated, could be renovated for use as a shelter care home . . . two weeks later, following the renovation, we moved some of the patients back, leaving about 30 patients in the new nursing home ... and then started filling vacancies from applications on hand ... by Dec. 1, we had a full house, 96 patients, and have maintained an average patient count of 95.3 ever since." As of May, Fischer added, the 59 beds at the shelter care home were filled. '•• As vacancies occur at the nursing home, they are filled from applications on file, calls being made to applicants according to the date 'of application "Of course, this is a little misleading," Fisher added. "We start at the earliest application date, but sometimes a family situation has changed since the, date of the application, sometimes the applicant has died, or perhaps been hospitalized or placed in another nursing home which is satisfactory . . . sometimes we have a bed in the men's section and the earliest applicants are women » A total staff of 140 em- ployes, including part-time workers, in all departments keeps the nursing home operating, Fischer said.

LAMB - Your articles are most helpful and informative. One in particular stressed getting adequate medical care for arthritis. Dr. Lamb, you have no idea how difficult that is. Too many a doctors feel that it is just one of those chronic problems and you have to make the best of it. Even the state medical school can be a problem. I was told nothing could be done for me and eventually I would be paralyzed. One arm and hand were almost paralyzed at that time. X rays show that I also have arthritis in the spine and neck and the hips are also affected. I do special typing for the psychiatrist and finally told him I would not be able to continue to, even at a reduced speed because of my arthritis. He sent me to physical therapy and it has revolutionized my life. Of course I still have trouble, but it has helped a great deal. So, doctor, it's all in the "luck" one has in getting the right doctor. In large areas, there are specialists who concern themselves only with ,"*''•) By Dr. Lawrence E. Lamb arthritis, but in most of our small towns our busy doctors just don't have time to devote to us arthritics. DEAR READER - Yes, I do know how difficult it is. There is a lot that can be done for arthritis and much of it has to be directed toward learning proper living habits. Physiotherapy, which includes proper exercises, is an important part of the treatment in keeping full us of the body. It's true that in many small towns doctors just don't have the time to deal with such complex, time consuming problems. Also a lot of equipment is expensive and support treatment, such as physiotherapy, Isn't always available either. Some readers nave told me I'm unreasonable in telling them they should go to a center or location where a rheumatologist is located. Considering the importance of arthritis, I don't think so. The person with rheumatoid arthritis, characterized by swelling, particularly needs help. The Arthritis Foundation was formed to try to help resolve some of the problems of the type your letter describes. You live near Denver and a chapter of the Arthritis Foundation is Icoated there. You could address your letter to the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation, Denver, Colo. 80204. In large cities patients can sometimes find the state or regional chapter of the Arthritis Foundation listed in the telephone book. To find the nearest rheumatologist (specialist in arthritis) you can write to the national headquarters office, ArtJrrttti Foundation, 1212 Avenue <tf the Americas, New Y<hk, New York 10036. They can direct you to the rheumatologist nearest to you. In small communities a good way to do this is to have your family doctor refer you to the rheumagologist, and even though it may be 40 or 50 miles away, a trip once or twice a year depending on your health status is a good investment. The rheumatologist can act as a consultant to your family doctor and can help you gain access to the different kinds of treatment you might need. I don't think anyone with rheumatoid arthritis should ignore this problem. To do so is to risk serious limitation and disability later.
