Family and friends of residents at the Ozark Health Nursing Center in Clinton are in the process of rebuilding a family council.

The council is not part of the nursing center administration. It exists solely for the benefit of the residents and its primary function is to identify specific needs or concerns of residents and their families, then find solutions that result in positive change, according to Judy Horner, one of the organizers.

Anyone interested in learning more about how to help is welcome to attend the next meeting, which is 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 18, in the south hall dining room.
