Someone close by must have a wood stove. When I lived in the country, I had a small wood stove in my kitchen and this time of year it felt good to burn a little wood in it on cool mornings. My favorite time of day was having my second cup of coffee, after my children left for school. I really enjoyed sitting beside this little stove in a rocking chair and read- ing for an hour with my book and coffee. There certainly is not that kind of pleasure in electric heat, but life moves forward and memo- Attends P.A.C.E. Training Anna Binkley attended an Ar- thritis Foundation P.A.C.E. (People with Arthritis Can Exer- cise) Instructor training at Mary Washington Hospital in Fredricksburg, Va on July 24 and 25. The instructor training pro- vided the latest research and in- formation about physiological and psychological aspects of rheumatic diseases. It also provided infor- mation needed to teach PACE class participants about exercise safety, joint protection, body awareness, stress and pain man- agement. The Arthritis Foundation PACE Program is a group recre- ational exercise program designed specifically for people with arthri- tis. The program includes range of motion, muscle strengthening and]or endurance exercises, body mechanics and relaxation tech- niques. In addition to helping to improve joint flexibility and re- duce pain and stiffness, the PACE exercise experience also encour- ages peer interaction and social- ization. This program provides participants with a fun and safe exercise program. Anna currently instructs an Ar- thritis Foundation Aqua Program on Tuesday - Thursday 2 to 3 p.m.; Senior Water Program on Monday - Wednesday - Friday 8:45 to 9:45 a.m.; and a Water Aerobic Pro- gram, Tuesday - Thursday 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. for The Martinsburg Health and Fitness Club located in the Holiday Inn in Martinsburg and instructs a Water Aerobic Pro- gram on Tuesday - Thursday 9 to 10 a.m. for the Clarion in Shep- herdstown. All of the water classes are now open for registra- tion. Registration for classes for the Pace program and a senior weight bearing exercise program will be opening in October. For more in- formation about the time, days and location of the PACE and the Senior exercise programs call 876- 6024. HOSPITAL MAKES REGISTRATION PROCESS CHANGES As a result of numerous patient suggestions regarding ways to im- prove patient registration at Jef- ferson Memorial Hospital, the hospital has recently made some changes in the registration pro- cess. As of last week, all outpatient, inpatient, and outpatient surgery patients at Jefferson Memorial Hospital register in a separate area from the emergency depart- ment patients. The new registra- tion area is located in the business office near the front lobby and is open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Outpatients, inpatients, and outpatient surgery patients regis- tering during this time period re- port to the Volunteer Information Desk in the main lobby to sign-in. A volunteer then directs the pa- tients to be seated in the front" lobby until a registration clerk is available. Following registration, patients are escorted by hospital volunteers to appropriate areas as needed. Emergency department pa- tients will continue to register in the area adjacent to the emer- gency department. On weekends and before 7 a.m. and after 5 p.m all patients are registered in the emergency department area. "After the first week, the new registration process seems to be running very smoothly," said Shari Raw, business office man- ager. "We hope that this change proves to be an improvement in the registration process for all of our patients," she added.
