Support for Internet Explorer Versions 10 and 11

Posted by Chris Freund on Mar 4, 2020 1:50:16 PM

Microsoft has officially ended the support of Internet Explorer Version 10 as of February 11, 2020.  Though it will continue supporting Internet Explorer Version 11 for a while, Microsoft is encouraging its users to transition to Edge as soon as possible.  While the actual FAMCare and ClinicalPURSUIT products continue to run well in Internet Explorer, some third party add-ons are starting to drop support, and this includes our Help Desk link.  If you use Internet Explorer for FAMCare, you will not be able to connect directly to the help desk unless you logout and login with a different browser.

Meals on Wheels

Posted by GVT Admin on Feb 8, 2020 9:17:37 PM

Our American youth culture has forgotten our seniors. It isn’t accurate to accuse us of neglecting or abusing our seniors. No, caught up in the everyday business of our hyper-success culture, we simply don’t think about our senior population unless we have to. As long as we feel we’ve made reasonable accommodations for our seniors (Social Security and Medicare) we tend to pay closer attention to our careers and our children.

The Salvation Army’s soldiers ringing their bells in front of stores and on street corners all across America and, indeed, the entire western world, are as much a part of our traditional Christmas tableaux as the Christmas tree, Santa Claus, the front door wreath, and snowy country scenes enlivened with horse drawn sleighs and seasonal music celebrating family love.
