Submitted by the San Juan Hospital District 1
A survey of county residents over the age of 70 being conducted during the month of August by the Inter-Island Healthcare Foundation is being extended to Sept., 15 to allow more time. The organization collecting and analyzing the information by phone, online websites, and by paper surveys is Health Facilities Planning and Development 206-441-0971. Please watch for their call. This is just one of the steps in planning for our long-term care needs.
If you have not taken the survey yet or been called via landline by Health Facilities Planning and Development, please consider taking the time to complete the survey online. A link to the survey can be found on the SJCPHD No. 1 website, www.sjcphd.org, and the Inter-Island Healthcare Foundation website, www.interislandhealthcare.org.
Each of the three public hospital districts in San Juan County also has information about the survey on their websites.
Paper surveys can be found, completed and or dropped off at each of the senior centers on Lopez, Orcas, and San Juan Island, and at the San Juan County Public Library in Friday Harbor.
