Tick-borne Disease Prevention:   Prevention of tick-borne illness hinges on preventing ticks from attaching and obtaining a blood meal from individuals.  This can be accomplished by avoiding tick habitat, using personal protection methods, and changing the environment to reduce the presence of ticks. Ticks can be found in high grass, low brush, shrubs and depending on life cycle can be found in moist ground litter.  Adult ticks await the passing of a potential host and can recognize them by movement, body heat and exhaled carbon dioxide.   A tick must be attached for several hours to transmit disease.   There are different illnesses that can come from tick bites.   The most common symptoms of tick-related illnesses can include fever-chills, aches and pains, and rash. Early recognition and treatment of the infection decreases the risk of serious complications. Please see your doctor immediately if you have been bitten by a tick and experience any of these symptoms.  The information provided is recommendations from the Indiana State Department of Health and the CDC. If there are any questions or concerns regarding tick-borne illness please contact Lora Sanders, RN at the Orange County Health Department, 1-812-723-7113.

The Orleans Street Department is reminding local residents of the importance of NOT blowing grass clippings out into the town streets, roadways as prohibited by local ordinance. This practice only tends to clog the storm drains, further adding to the town’s flooding problem during periods of heavy rainfall.  Town crews regularly check storm sewer grates, but property and business owners are also encouraged to assist in this endeavor when possible by keeping grates clear of trash items, sticks, limbs in order to allow storm water to run off properly.

Staying safe and independent as you age are goals many of us share. Older adults and individuals with chronic medical conditions risk losing the ability to live safely in their homes due to the increased need of assistance.   Jasper  Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center offers Lifeline, a medical alert assistance serviced for those who wish to live independently in their homes, while maintaining an immediate emergency link to 24/7 Response Center, where trained personnel can talk to the resident immediately and activate the subscriber’s emergency response plan if needed.
With Lifeline, the resident has a communicator unit attached to the telephone and a portable button that is worn around the neck or on the wrist .  When assistance is needed, the portable button is pushed, which sends an electronic message through the telephone to the 24/7 Response Center.    Lifeline has a one-time installation fee of $50.00 and costs starting at $39.00 per month after installation. For more information about these services or to subscribe, please call Jasper Memorial Hospital’s Lifeline Program Facilitator, at (812) 996-2399 option 1 or toll-free at (800) 852-7279, ext. 2399 option 1.
