Starbucks Coffee
Starbucks Coffee House continues to provide the morning treats for the Senior Center, so a special thank you to the local shop. They missed a few days last week because their extras were given to the Red Cross for military who were shipping out. The seniors were happy to “support the troops” in this way.

Braille Mobile
The Braille Institute in Santa Barbara will bring their mobil unit to the Senior Center parking lot on Tuesday, April 27th from 10-2. They will have many items for sale for the sight impaired. The Braille Institute has classes and many ways of helping the blind and those with failing sight. If any member of your family is in need of help, bring them for this no cost assistance. The Center will be open from 8 to 1 that day and Tuesday is one of the days that an outstanding salad bar will be served with the noon meal. Call and make a reservation now. ( 524-4533) You may “come for the help” and “stay for the food.” Seniors may eat free or make a $2.25 donation to the meal fund.

Area Agency on Aging
Arrangements have been made by the Area Agency on Aging for needy seniors to ride the bus to the Center for meals with tokens provided through the kitchen. Any senior who needs help with transportation for meals may ask Toni for details to secure tokens.

Computer Class
The beginning computer class has a waiting list. Any senior who would like to learn about using a PC should get their name on the list for a future class. A class to learn WORD and EXCEL may be started in the near future if there is an interest.

Tai Chi Class
The tai chi class continues “to slowly move” and adds new members almost every week. If you want exercise, this is a good group to join every Wednesday at 9 a.m. Our own Dan Roatcap is the instructor. The suggested donation is $2 a week.

Census Forms
Most everyone in the Fillmore-Piru area has received the census forms and most have been returned. However, if you have not received your census form, you may pick up one at the City Hall in Fillmore. They are located in the lobby in a box on the table and are available in both English and Spanish. Make sure you are counted.

Nature Walk
The Senior Nature Walk last week was a big success. The group went to Sycamore State Park between Thousand Oaks and the coast and had a great time. There were many wild flowers blooming and birds everywhere. A group of wild parrots have made a home near the campgrounds and provided unusual bird watching. If you like hiking and didn’t go on this one, then shame on you.

Salad Bars
The nutrition salad bars on Tuesday and Thursday are getting very popular. If you are a new participant, give the kitchen a call midmorning so extra food will be waiting for you at 11:30. One day last week the “nose count” was 30 and they scraped the bottom of the bowls, so seniors are learning where to find a real bargain for only $2.25 voluntary donation. The salad bar food is paid for from the Senior Center budget and local donations with the hot meals paid by the Federal Nutrition Program.

Channel 10
If you want to keep up on activities at the Senior Center, watch Channel 10 for the latest updates. They hope to also have a web page soon.

Busy Hands
The Busy Hands group is open to anyone who wants to chat, knit or crochet or just needs help with her project. Donna Voelker is always ready to assist you. (And the morning coffee and treats are fun too.)

Piano
When Gloria Hansen donated a piano to the Senior Center last year, I bet she didn’t know it would be used for nice background music when any talented senior comes to the Center. It is great to have music at the monthly birthday party with cake and coffee. Well, you never know-----Videos
For WWII veterans, the library has a complete set of videos of that war, so come down the take one home for viewing. The library also has lots of paperbacks to lend on many subjects. You may take them home or read in the library.

Avocados & Fruit
If you have extra avocados or fresh fruit, the Center would be happy to accept a donation for the salad bar and seniors.

Experts Help Seniors “Fit” Safely into their Cars

Ventura – On Saturday, February 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the new Veterans Home of California in Ventura will be teaming with driving experts, Occupational Therapists and trained technicians to hold a “CarFit” event -- a unique education program designed to help drivers 55 and over understand how to improve driving safety by ensuring their cars are properly adjusted just for them. A special team will lead drivers through a free 12-point CarFit checklist to ensure they understand how to use vehicle features properly.

CarFit is not a mechanical inspection of the car or a test of the driver’s ability. Instead, during each 20-minute CarFit session, trained technicians recommend personal vehicle adjustments and adaptations and offer resources that could enhance senior driving safety. Occupational Therapists will also be on hand to provide information on adaptive devices, such as pedal extenders and seat cushions. “The program’s purpose is to ensure drivers are correctly using vehicle devices, such as mirrors and seat belts, and are properly placed within their car, all with an eye toward safety,” said Marisue Eastlake, Director of the Oxnard RSVP. In Ventura County, RSVP is the driving force behind bringing the program to the west county. RSVP is a volunteer program that helps people age 55 and older find meaningful opportunities to serve within their community. Its services are free to both the senior adult and the non-profit community, where RSVP works with over 70 different agencies to place volunteers.

The CarFit event will take place at the Veterans Home of California in Ventura at 10900 Telephone Road, Ventura, CA 93004 (at Wells Road). The check-up is free, but appointments, made by calling 805-659-7501, are required. Each appointment takes approximately 20 minutes. “We are delighted to be offering this free service to our community at the new Veterans Home of California,” added Administrator Brenda Manke. “This is the beginning of just one of the great services the Home will be offering to the community and its seniors.” About 60 senior drivers attended the 2009 CarFit events.

The American Society on Aging created CarFit in collaboration with American Association for Retired Persons (AARP), the American Automobile Association (AAA) and the American Occupational Therapy Association. The national program is the first to offer adults 55 and over the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles fit them. To learn more about CarFit, please log on to their website at www.car-fit.org. Or please call 805-385-8019.

 

The BOOK CLUB at the Senior Center will be reading “THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATOO” by Steed Larsson for their March meeting. It has been on the Best Seller list for the past year. Everyone is invited to participate at the next meeting on Wednesday, March 10th. If you have questions, call Sarah Hansen. 524-0132

The men’s team Wii BOWLING practices on Thursday at 10 a.m. with the women’s team on Friday. For lots of fun and exercise, come and join the group.

To start your day with a peaceful mind and relaxed body, join the MEDITATION group at 9 a.m. on Tuesday and stay for YOGA at 10. More advanced yoga meets on Thursday.

Call 524-2319 The cost of lunch is only $2.25 for those who can afford to pay. If funds are unavailable, the lunch will be served at no cost for this federally subsidized program.

 

The monthly birthday celebration will be revived at the Senior Center on Friday, February 26 and will continue on the last Friday of each month. Following lunch, a birthday cake and coffee will be served at 12:30 in the main room with light entertainment. Harold Mayberry will play piano arrangements this month.
Everyone is invited to attend and enjoy the celebration. If you have a birthday during the month, you will receive special recognition. Others will have to wait until “their month” but refreshments will be served to all. If you have ideas for entertainment, please give them to the person at the Welcome Desk or call the Center, 524-4533.

 

Ventura, CA. - Country recording star Phil Vassar, who has charted 19 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs – including four No. 1 hits – will return to the Ventura Fairgrounds to headline the 20th annual Gold Dust Gala benefit on Saturday, April 17.

Proceeds from the Gold Dust Gala are used for breast cancer detection and treatment, cervical cancer screening and vaccine, and needed diagnostic equipment benefitting women in our community who lack access to life-saving exams. These services are provided by Community Memorial Health System, and administered through the Healthy Women’s Program.

Through past funds raised at the Gold Dust Gala the program was expanded in 2009, with the hiring of an Outreach Education Manager devoted to promoting this critical program by reaching out to women and encouraging them to utilize this vital service. In addition, five public breast cancer screening days (Mammo Day) were held that assisted 85 women. The “Mammo Day” events target specific communities, and start out with breast cancer education at one of our Centers for Family Health, followed by complimentary transportation to and from the Breast Center for mammography exams – all covered under the Healthy Women’s Program.

Tickets and sponsorship packages can be purchased online at www.golddustgala.org, or by calling the Community Memorial Healthcare Foundation office at 805-667-2881.

The Gold Dust Gala, sponsored by the Community Memorial Healthcare Foundation, begins at 6 p.m. with a silent auction, raffles and a barbecue dinner, with Phil Vassar taking the stage at 8:30 p.m.

 

Ventura, CA. - The active surveillance method of managing early-stage prostate cancer will be the focus of a free seminar the Community Memorial Health System is holding on Tuesday, Feb. 23.

Duke Bahn, M.D., director of the Prostate Institute of America at Community Memorial Hospital, will lead the discussion during the seminar to be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the eighth-floor Nichols Auditorium at CMH, located at 147 Brent St. in Ventura.

There has been a remarkable surge in prostate cancer diagnosis beginning in the 1980s when the Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) test was introduced. Nonetheless, the death rate from the disease has not reduced significantly. It is now argued that physicians may be over-detecting and over-treating prostate cancer.

Dr. Bahn will discuss the concept of active surveillance – to delay prostate cancer treatment as long as possible while carefully monitoring the patient’s status, and to treat only when the disease progression is confirmed during close clinical evaluation. Dr. Bahn’s presentation will include case reviews and literature discussions on the topic.

Dr. Bahn is certified by the American Board of Radiology and has served as the clinical associate professor in radiation oncology at Wayne State University Medical College in Detroit. He is a member of the American College of Radiology, the Radiology Society of North America, the Michigan Radiology Society, the California Radiology Society, the American College of Cryomedicine, the American Roentgen Ray Society and the Society of Urologic Cryosurgeons.
Admission is free, but space is limited, so reservations are suggested. Call 805/652-5436, or go to www.cmhshealth.org/rsvp.
