Support Lutz Center’s mission

I am writing in response to the precarious financial situation of one of the county’s most valuable resources/services. The Lutz Center Adult Day Health Care Center has been providing affordable rehabilitation services to the citizens of Nevada County for close to 10 years.

I have witnessed the miracles of human spirit that take place daily at the Lutz Center. People with severe diagnoses who had given up all hope of quality of life have amazed themselves, their families and their doctors by rallying and maintaining function or achieving a higher level of functioning due to the TLC from the Lutz Center staff.

As the former nursing director of the Lutz Center Adult Day Health Care Center, I am dismayed that this program does not receive the recognition and the utilization that it deserves. You families out there taking care of a loved one, please find out about the benefits both of you will experience by their regular attendance at the center. After MediCare ceases its reimbursement for outpatient physical therapy, where can a patient go for on going physical therapy as well as monitoring by a registered nurse and other health professionals? The answer is the Lutz Center.

Call 273-6581 for information. The help you need and want is here. Let’s keep it in operation.
