Stoddard Co. Ambulance Dist. preparing for 29th annual 'Home for the Holidays' project

STODDARD COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

The Stoddard County Ambulance District announced they will be conducting their 29th annual "Home for the Holidays" project on Nov. 27.

They will be taking patients that are unable to travel except by ambulance from the nursing homes of Stoddard County to homes within the county.

The ambulance district said this service is available to any patient that is not ambulatory and would like to spend some time at home with their family for the holiday season.

They say the patients will be taken home on Thanksgiving Day.

After the visit, they say they will take them back to the appropriate nursing facility.

The patients will be allowed to stay as long as they wish on their home visit. It can be just a few hours or even over night.

The ambulance district said there will be no charge to the patient, nor their family, for this service.

Anyone interested in the program should contact the activity director at the patient's nursing home.

All arrangements should be made through the appropriate nursing home, which will then contact the ambulance office to set up the schedule.

They ask that you please do not contact the Ambulance Office District.
