Changing Seasons Home Health preps early for emergencies later.

Lightening cracks against a rapidly darkening sky. Wind beats against the windows as rain begins to fall in torrents. Spring in our area brings both the beauty and hazards of nature, but a little advanced planning can help ease the anxiety of what could come.

“We should all have some basic preparation in place for ourselves, and especially for those who depend on us.” says Jan Lehmann, owner of Changing Seasons Home Health. “We take caring for the most vulnerable people in society seriously.”
