    We are pleased to announce that Winter Growth has reopened its Adult Medical Day Programs in Olney and Columbia for fully vaccinated older and disabled adults. We know that the isolation of older adults over the last year has taken a toll, leaving many anxious and depressed; and spouses exhausted from being sole caregivers. Winter Growth's vibrant Day Programs, with onsite nursing, PT, OT, and Speech Therapy, are an effective antidote.

    For more information, please contact our Columbia Center Director, Claire Noll, at claire.noll@wintergrowthinc.org / (410) 964-9616 or our Olney Center Director, Becky Donahue, at becky.donahue@wintergrowthinc.org / (301) 774-7501.

    Friend,

    We know that advance care planning is important, but sometimes it can be difficult to talk with your loved ones about what you would want if a time came when you couldn't speak for yourself. Too often, families don't plan for this point and find themselves in the difficult situation of not knowing what to do for their loved one during a medical crisis or serious illness.

    Naming your agent protects your loved ones from disagreements and burden. And it ensures your wishes will be honored and heard. Now, Speak(easy) Howard is giving you the chance to send your loved one a precious gift - the gift of Peace of Mind.

    Here's how it works:

    • Choose between a physical or a digital gift to let your loved one know you've named them as your health care agent. 
    • Next, you'll be taken to MyDirectives - a secure website that allows you to name your health care agent online, in minutes.
    • Once you're done, we'll send you two simple questions that help you share your medical wishes with your health care agent so you can talk with them about it.

    Protect your loved ones from uncertainty and burden. Give them Peace of Mind. https://speakeasyhoward.org/peaceofmind
