PERRYBURG - Kingston Rehabilitation of Perrysburg, a skilled nursing facility, has recently opened the third floor of its building.
To better serve the community, Kingston has expanded their skilled nursing section by making the third floor available to patients. The rooms provide a level of home-like comfort with guest rooms located on the upper floors and away from the activity of the lobby and therapy area. An elevator that travels directly to the rehabilitation gym or pool allows patients to privately bypass the main lobby.
The state-of-the-art facility features an advanced design with many critical pieces of medical equipment built into every patient room. Items including oxygen and suction are piped into the room for easy access and immediate service. Generally these items would have to be transported to the room by staff members when needed.

The Wood County Committee on Aging plans to participate in the Meals on Wheels Association's "March for Meals" program again this year.
During the week of March 17-21 elected officials from across Wood County will get involved by delivering hot meals to older adults in the communities in which they serve. Participants are expected to include everyone from mayors to council members, to trustees, judges and others.
March for Meals is a national campaign aimed at creating awareness of, and ending, senior hunger. Since 1975, the WCCOA has provided seniors throughout the county with the resources they need to maintain their independence and enjoy this season of life.
March 17-21 is the national "March for Meals" Community Champions week. Most elected officials will participate on March 19, with some participating on a different day that week. Elected officials will pick up their meals at one of the six senior centers around the county or - for those delivering in the city of Bowling Green - at the production kitchen located at 1860 East Gypsy Lane Road at approximately 11-11:30 a.m. They will then deliver those meals to a specified route in their community.
Elected officials are continuing to sign on.

Wood County Hospital, in conjunction with the Alzheimer's Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter will host "Living with Alzheimer's," a three-part series for people with Alzheimer's or related dementia being offered on Thursdays in March.
The free program will meet March 6, 13, and 20, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Wood County Hospital Meeting Rooms, 950 W. Wooster St.
The program will focus on the person who has memory changes due to Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. Topics will include memory changes, everyday coping skills, building a support system, and hope. Individuals with early stage memory loss, who are experiencing forgetfulness, mild confusion, or difficulty finding the right words are most likely to benefit from this series.
Family and friends of individuals affected by this disease are also welcome to attend this event.  However, caregivers could benefit more by attending other programs provided by the Alzheimer's Association that are specifically designed to assist those who provide direct care.
To register or for more information, call the Alzheimer's Association at 800-272-3900.
