Well, it’s time for me to personally make another move into the 21st Century! I’m not quite kicking and screaming, but we all know how hard change can be. But learning is a life-long process, and I want to continue to learn new skills to help keep Hospice of Morrow County current on various communications and technology developments – which can be hard in this fast-paced world!
Our new website is up and running, thanks again to a generous grant from The People Fund at Consolidated Electric Cooperative, and it has been developed to facilitate viewing on a tablet device. But don’t’ worry – all content will continue to be accessible on desktop or laptop PCs as well. Please check us out at www.hospicemorrowcounty.org.
One item suggested by our website developer was to use a blog to help communicate with our followers on a more regular basis (and more frequently than through our periodic newsletters). So what’s a “blog”? Derived from “web log,” a “blog” is a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style. So, I will be writing a blog for Hospice of Morrow County! Our goal is to have our blog accessible from our webpage / Facebook page, and I hope that we will have semi-monthly posts beginning in March, so please watch for updates. We welcome your feedback!
As for our newsletter, which is published three times a year, we will continue to offer it in print, but we will also be making it available via an email subscription. You can help us save on printing and postage costs by signing up for an electronic version of our newsletter on our website.
All these changes are made possible by advances in technology. What will the next 5-10 years bring? God only knows. But whatever new technology comes our way, Hospice of Morrow County will continue to provide good old-fashioned, quality, hands-on care – all with caring hearts – to our patients and their families. Technology is great, but it will never be more important than the person-to-person bond between patient and caregiver. We look forward to continuing our service to this community.
