July 16th The Book Club is taking a trip to Rancho Camulos. Please meet here at the Fillmore Senior Center by 9:30 AM. Marie Wren will be Directing the Tour. Rancho Camulos is a popular tourist destination and famous as the “Home of Ramona” This is a rare opportunity to step back in time to see and experience Southern California much as it was in the 19th. and 20th Centuries. There is a small charge of $5 per person, this is going to be a VIP tour so it will be longer than usual. Besides it’s a nice time to get outdoors and meet some nice people.

Tai Chi is offered every Monday at 8:50 AM – 9:50 Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art made up of a series of graceful movements, one transitioning smoothly into the next. I found an article by Dr. Komaroff sometime ago. He wrote about one of his Medical School colleagues Dr. Peter Wayne. Dr Wayne discusses “Eight Active Ingredients” of Tai Chi. Some of which were; “Awareness” The slow deliberate movements and attention to breath, body positions and sensations foster intense self-awareness. “Intention, Imagery and Visualization” contribute to the healing and physiological effects of tai chi. “Structural integration”, Viewing the body as a whole, instead of a collection of independent parts. “Active Relaxation” Tai Chi’s circular, flowing motion helps shift the body and mind into deeper levels of relaxation. “Strengthening and Flexibility” The integrated movements improve balance, increase lower body strength and promotes strong bones. Slow, continuous, relaxed and repetitive movement enhances flexibility. And in contrast to some other exercises, tai chi is very easy on you joints. . Our class is taught by Dan Roatcap. Dan is a 1973 graduate of Fillmore High School. He started Martial Arts when he was18, then started practicing Tai Chi in 2005. He became a teacher 4 years ago doing Yang Style Tai Chi Chu’an, as taught by the Tung family.

The Senior Citizen Driver’s Education Class is a cooperative effort between the Camarillo Health Care District, Camarillo Police Department, Department of Motor Vehicles, and senior drivers.

The Senior Citizen Driver’s Education Class will offer lecture on issues related to senior citizen drivers, advice on how to be a safer driver, information for caregivers, alternate forms of transportation and community resources available to seniors. Our goal is to raise awareness and reduce the number of senior-related injuries and deaths due to traffic collisions.

To date, we have held nine classes since August of 2010 with approximately 185 students attending.

Senior Drivers and / or their caregivers are encouraged to attend the class. For reservations, call MaryGay San Jose at the Camarillo Police Department at (805) 388-5155. There is no charge to attend the program.

Thursday, March 8th from 10AM - 11:30 Our Caregiver Support Group will be having a special class to discuss “The 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s & Dementia”. Many people worry about becoming more forgetful as they grow older. Our brains change as we age, just like the rest of our bodies. However, serious memory loss, confusion and other major changes in the way our minds work are not a typical part of aging. When Memory loss starts being a warning sign, some people may recognize the changes in them self before anyone else notices. Other times, friends and family will be the first to observe changes in the person’s memory, behavior or abilities. To help, the Alzheimer’s Association has created a list of 10 warning signs, such as forgetting recently learned information or difficulty completing familiar tasks, forgetting where they are or how they got there. Our speaker also speaks Spanish, so don’t let language stop you from coming. Please call and let us know your coming in case we need to repeat the class all in Spanish. 524-4533

VENTURA, CA - Seniors who’ve never used a computer but want to learn how, are invited to take this free, two-hour class at the SCAN Senior Resource Center on Wednesday, February 20, from 9 to 11 a.m. “Computer Basics” is an entry-level, senior-focused class for true beginners. The SCAN Senior Resource Center is located at 1001 Partridge Drive, Suite 200, in Ventura.

“This has quickly become one of our most popular classes, and it is only open to those who haven’t taken it before,” said Bob McCullagh, who will be leading the class. McCullagh has extensive computer teaching experience and previously worked for IBM for more than 30 years. “This is a small, hands-on class designed specifically for seniors. The class covers the basics that will give seniors confidence to eventually learn other functions such as email and Internet browsing.”

Class participants will learn to:

Turn on the computer: booting up
Computer terms like what is the cursor, scrolling, drop down menus, pop-up windows, desktop, etc.
Use of a computer mouse
Logging off
Shutting down
There is no cost for this class, but space is limited. Call 805-658-0365 to register.
