Issue 8 | 1/31/13 February Newsletter President’s Message Building good relationships in the workplace is in many ways similar to building good relationships outside of work. Similar to making friends in your neighborhood or at church, you need to get a good feel for the culture, and then rely on some common sense. February is known as the month for love and relationships. I recently read some tips for building quality relationships in the office, with the neighbors, or in your family. *Do not try too hard. Anyone who comes across as too eager, whether at work or in another type of relationship, could turn people off. When you try too hard, you might come across as pushy. Take time to listen to others. *Earn people’s respect. One way to build your connections at work is through your attitude, quality of work and reliability. *Do not rely on email alone. Email is so popular these days, but it is somewhat impersonal. Make an extra effort to actually talk to a person. Pick up the phone or stop by to visit. Face to face interaction is key for solid relationships. *Seek to understand others. Try to be patient and seek to understand where they are coming from. *Do what you say you will do. One of the best ways to build a relationship with someone is to do the things you say you will do. Commitment and reliability will foster relationships. *Do not whine. Be as positive and friendly as you can and people will naturally be drawn to you. The February luncheon topic is “Going for Goals”. This is a perfect topic to rejuvenate our New Year’s resolutions. I hope to see many of you at the luncheon! Tammy Selley, President

This is a thank you note we received from one of the Thankscholarship recipients from last year. youLadies,In November I completed my Law Enforcement Officercertification at BATC, thanks to a generous WIB scholarship. It wasquite a journey. The academy began in late May. On the first day itwas clear that I was a bit older than the other 21 males in the classwho had been attending the other sections since January. Being theonly female and the matron was interesting. I held my own duringthe miles and miles of running, endless pushups and sit-ups. I wasbeat up and bruised during the baton and defensive tacticstraining, but I survived. Defensive tactics was the most challengingas it is a personal weakness. I was often paired with the biggestguy in the class (a mere 250 lbs) to prove that even the smallestperson could fight their way out of a situation. And the classworkwas as challenging as any college class, but twice as interesting.The completion of my last law enforcement certificate allows me tomove anywhere in the Cache County Sheriffs Office, as SheriffNelson sees fit. It also provides me with a new knowledge basethat helps me understand the entire law enforcement picture moreclearly. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity that you haveprovided to me. It was a great experience, but I am glad I neverhave to do it again.Respectfully,Holly!-- Holly Dixon Sergeant, Cache County Jail

Did$you$know…$ Research published in the Journal of Pain & Symptom Management found that: terminally-ill patients who received hospice care lived on average 29 days longer than those who did not opt for hospice near the end of life.Our Hospice Team offers specialized knowledge & support at the end of life just asobstetricians & midwives lend support & expertise at the start of life.Hospice can reduce anxiety in both the terminally ill patient & their family by helping them make themost of the time remaining & achieve some level of acceptance.When terminally ill patients make the decision to receive hospice care instead of continued curative treatment,they avoid the dangers of over-treatment.In-home care from a hospice team often means the patient receives greater monitoring than he or she wouldin a hospital.In addition to focusing on the physical health & comfort of a patient, our hospice team also focuses on theemotional needs & spiritual well-being of the terminally ill & their loved ones.Since we offer substantial support & training for family caregivers, it also helps many patients feel less of aburden to their loved ones.
