CAPE GAzETrE, Friday, May 30 - June 7, 1997 - 33 Beebe Medical Center sponsors "Super Sitter" classs Beebe Medical Center is now taking registrations for two sepa- rate two-day "Super Sitter" baby- sitter certification programs for June 26 and 27 and July 15 and 16. The two-day classes will be held in the second floor education classroom at Beebe Medical Cen- ter for boys and girls 12 years of age and older who want to improve their child care skills. The program, designed to pre- pare teenagers for safe, responsi- ble baby-sitting, will include information on infant and child behaviors; fire and home safety; infant and child care as well as cardiopulmonary resuscitation .(CPR). The first day of class covers parents' expectations, baby-sitting responsibilities and normal growth and development. Day two includes home safety, fire safety and infant and child CPR. The course is taught by regis- tered nurses and education spe- cialists as well as law enforcement officials and local volunteer fire companies. The cost of the course is $30, which includes two days of pro- fessional instruction and educa- tional materials. Lunch will be served on the first day of the class only. "Our goal is to prepare young adults to become safe and respon- sible sitters when caring for infants and children," said Norene Broadhurst, R.N, who serves as the program coordinator. "Our program helps these young sitters understand what is normal and how to handle the unexpected." Pre-registration is required, and registration is limited to the first 12 participants. To register, call 645-3248. Beebe celebrates National Canc00 Cancer touches the lives of millions of Americans each year. On the first Sunday in June each year, can- cer survivors gather around the country to rejoice and celebrate life. Knowing they have faced fear, and been touched by the worst, cancer survivors stand together and say, "I am alive, life is mine and I have learned the value of life." Every survivor has a story of how cancer has changed them and those around them. National Can- Spiders Continued from page 31 Analgesics may be taken to control pain. Contact your physician if the area becomes infected. Generally, spiders are found in dark comers, but can be found just about anywhere. Wear gloves and long-sleeved garments if you are going to be handling wood for the fireplace, cleaning out the attic or garage, or working in the garden or some other "spidery" places. Wear shoes at all times when outdoors and if you are an avid camper, be extra careful in out- houses. And remember, it is bad luck to kill a spider in the r Survivor's Day cer Survivors Day is a celebration of life. Beebe Medical Center's Tunnell Cancer Center will hold a National Cancer Survivors Day Celebra- tion on Sunday, June 1 at 1 p.m. at the Tunnell Can- cer Center. Everyone is welcome.

Back in 1922, The Visiting Nurse Association of Delaware was started as a way to provide healthcare to homebound patients. The mission of those first 20 nurses was to provide a caring, nur- turing environment for the patient while recuperating at home. Over the next 75 years, we developed new services like home medical equipment, personal care services, and in home I.V. thera- pies -- all designed to make it possible for the people of Delaware to heal in their own homes. VNA now has over 1200 employees statewide. But one thing hasn't changed lltl since 1922 - we still believe in the healing power of home. t. A w A E. 1-888-VHA-0001 Dover. Georgetown.
