November is National Hospice and Palliative Care month, a time to reflect on specialized compassionate care that is available for those coping with a life-limiting illness. Imagine how overwhelming it is to work through the maze of doctors, hospitals, insurance, and also take care of yourself. It is the most challenging task one will ever face and Livingston Hospice understands … and is here to help.

Livingston hospice focuses on helping people learn what options might be available, while getting the care they need and deserve. “We’re working to make sure people know that support, comfort and respect are available at a time when hope seems out of reach,” said Dr. Lanyard Dial, Livingston Memorial’s President/CEO and Medical Director. “During November, we focus our efforts to raise awareness of the high-quality care that’s available during one of life’s most challenging times,” said Dr. Dial.

When cure is not possible, Livingston hospice provides hope; along with pain management, symptom control, and emotional and spiritual support. When facing a serious illness, most people want to be home, surrounded by their loved ones … hospice makes this all possible as medication, equipment and help are brought to the patient, wherever they may reside.

“There’s an inaccurate perception among the public that hospice means you’ve given up,” said J. Donald Schumacher, president and CEO of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

“It’s about quality of life; with the help of hospice and palliative care, patients and families can focus on what’s most important, living life as fully as possible, in spite of illness.” Dr. Dial said.
Contact Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice, a not for profit Medicare certified agency, at 642-1608, or visit them on the web @ Livingstonvna.org.

First Congress Stole The Social Security Surplus NOW THEY WANT TO ROB SENIORS THROUGH INFLATION

Written by Lawrence A. Hunter, Ph.D. of the Social Security Institute

Super Committee wants to change the way inflation is calculated by adopting the so-called “Chained CPI” to reduce Cost of Living Allowances (COLAs).

For months we at SSI have warned that the congressional “Super Committee” is hiding in the weeds, waiting to cut Social Security benefits for current retirees—not in ten years, not in five years, not in two years—RIGHT NOW!

Restaurants, bars around Gallaudet adjust for clientele

Written By Tim Devaney

Shortly after it opened, the H Street Country Club bar switched from black napkins to white. It seems like a small change, but it has had a big impact for one group of customers.

“We recognize the majority of the people in our bar are hearing-impaired,” said owner Ricardo Vergara, whose business is near Gallaudet University, one of the largest schools for the deaf in the nation. “They’re a big part of this side of town. So we make adjustments when they’re around.”

And the napkin color? Deaf... http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/sep/7/h-street-friendly-to-deaf...

The classes will meet twice a week for 11 weeks and will address a range of issues common to seniors such as improving bone strength; decreasing risk of falls; and increasing muscle strength, endurance and energy.
“Physical activity does not need to be strenuous or time consuming,” said Steve Lehman, manager of the SCAN Senior Resource Center. “The Seniorcize program is a great way to get active and be all that you can be. These classes have a great instructor, Jaci Gutierrez, who will inspire and guide you to new levels of energy and health.” Owner of Athletes in Motion, Gutierrez helped establish and train instructors for the Bone Builders program, which received the "Best New Program" Award from California Parks and Recreation.

In Santa Paula, Seniorcize begins on September 6 and will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 11 weeks from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Santa Paula Senior Center, 530 W. Main Street, Santa Paula.

In Fillmore, the program begins on September 9 and will meet on Mondays and Fridays for 11 weeks from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. On Mondays the class will meet at the Fillmore Senior Center, 533 Santa Clara; and on Fridays the class will meet at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, 1048 West Ventura Street, Fillmore.

The regular cost for the class is $44, which is $2 per session. However, in an effort to help launch this series, SCAN Health Plan’s SCAN Senior Resource Center in Ventura is helping with the cost. The first 25 seniors (age 60 and older) who register will pay only $22. A minimum of 15 participants are needed for class formation.
Space is limited. For questions or to register for the Santa Paula class, please call 933-4272 or 933-4226. For the Fillmore program, please call 524-4533.
