Our Mission Brewster Place is a retirement community providing all of its residents opportunities for an optimal quality of life.
The Brewster Health Center is accredited by The Joint Commission.
rewster’s Five to Thrive Dimensions of Wellness — physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and social — provide the roadmap for our programming. Our varied wellness programs allow residents and members the chance to engage in those classes, activities and events that help meet their individual wellness goals. A key component of wellness is education. Without education we fail to provide the basis or core reasons for change. For many years, Brewster served as a host site for Stormont Vail’s Healthwise 55 Luncheon which provided expert health and wellness speakers. As of last year, Stormont Vail’s Healthwise 55 programs occur at their site. With this change, Brewster’s Wellness and Resident Services Team decided to host their own educational luncheon series and created the Five to Thrive Wellness Luncheons. Luncheons are open to Brewster Place residents and members as well as the public, so invite your friends! Reservations are required by calling Jamie Fritz at 274-3398.
Five to Thrive Wellness Luncheons Third Tuesday of each month 11:30 am | Klinge Activity Center Lunch is $7. Meal is included for Redwood residents. Residents with meal plans may use this meal as part of their plan. All others can pay by cash or charge to their monthly statements.

Brewster’s Leadership Team
Matt Burns, Director of Environmental Services
his month we continue our focus on Brewster’s Leadership Team with a profile of Matt Burns, Director of Environmental Services. Matt was raised on a farm near Mayetta and graduated from Royal Valley High School in Hoyt. He married his high school sweetheart, Rhonda, and as he stated, they enjoyed “an eleven year honeymoon traveling with the military in Washington, Italy, Germany, Kansas and Georgia.” Matt joined the National Guard in 1999 to finish his 20 years for retirement and was deployed to Iraq in 2005. He retired from the military in 2009 with 22 years of service. Matt and Rhonda raised four children and now have four grandchildren in Overland Park. In 2018 Matt completed his bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Washburn University. Matt began his career at Brewster Place in 2003 as a Maintenance Tech serving the residents at The Evergreens. In 2011 he was promoted to Director of Maintenance and since then has added the housekeeping and custodial teams as well as the security/transportation team in his role as Director of Environmental Services. When asked why he came to work at Brewster Place, Matt replied, “I enjoy helping those in need and as a maintenance
technician, I got to be someone’s hero every day.” He states, “Brewster’s leadership and residents have been good to me and now the entire community — residents and staff — feels more like family than a workspace. My favorite part of the job is being able to make a difference for those people who pass through my sphere of influence.” Matt has served a crucial role during Brewster’s many construction projects — all while keeping his department on track. Many of you may not know that Matt is a licensed pastor with the American Baptist Association. He has served as pastor for a couple of different churches. Currently he provides pulpit supply as needed. He has many times graciously volunteered his time as our substitute Chaplain for Vespers. Matt commented, “I would like to say ‘thank you’ to those kind residents who have been gracious to me through the years when I have been forgetful or made a mistake. They are the ones who give me the incentive to keep going when the stress builds up. You have blessed me.” Matt is a great example of a “servant-leader” and we thank him for his continued service.

From the Chaplain Coping with Grief by Chaplain Roger Jackson, M. Div.
up to stage 5. You may begin in the denial stage but then skip to the depression stage. Or you may begin in the anger stage, go to bargaining stage, then to denial stage, and back to the anger stage. Each stage is important, though, as you walk through the process of healing. Also, if faith is important to you, it is valuable for you to surround yourself with people that understand and support your religious beliefs. God can give you the strength you need. Remember Paul’s words from Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” You also may have lots of questions. You may even feel angry with God. You may feel abandoned and all alone. These feelings are normal, and they can help guide the grieving process. In times of grief, I often reflect on the Footprints in the Sand poem. “The times when you have seen only one set of footprints, it is then that I carried you!” When we are going through the grieving process, it is a time that we need Jesus to carry us through.
any of you may have experienced a loss recently. Perhaps you’ve lost a spouse, a family member, a friend, a pet, your driving privileges, or your home of 50 years. Whatever the loss, it is important to cope with it. Oftentimes, we try to deal with our loss alone because we don’t want people to know we can’t get over it and move on. Actually, it is impossible to just “get over it.” But, you can begin the process of healing and learning how to cope. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross identified five stages of grief, especially associating the stages with death and dying. The five stages can also be useful for other types of losses that we experience. The stages are as follows: 1. Denial and Isolation 2. Anger 3. Bargaining 4. Depression 5. Acceptance It is important to note that each person goes through the stages differently. It is not like walking up a flight of stairs, stage 1, stage 2, and

ll you need to do is look around our campus to see that Brewster Place has been able to do so much more with your important and growing support than if we had been without it. Brewster can serve people we otherwise could not; we maintain levels of quality and programming which we would otherwise be unable to achieve. Brewster has a reputation for strong commitment to excellence and we are the leaders in caring for seniors in our greater community. All of this would be unachievable without philanthropy. The Brewster Foundation is merely a conduit, functioning to support your philanthropic giving toward excellence in quality of life for seniors — and serves as an example of your universal love of your fellow residents and those who will come after — which becomes not just the business of the Foundation, but the business of our lives. We are immensely grateful for your partnership. The Brewster Foundation Heritage Society serves as a way for individuals to make a lasting commitment to Brewster and the Brewster Foundation. The Brewster Place Heritage Society is made up of individuals who have notified the Brewster Foundation that they have made a lifetime gift to Brewster Place, helping to guarantee future residents and community members the quality of programming and care they have come to enjoy.

KU Osher Lifelong Learning Series
A On the Road: Highways, Cars and Vacations of a Bygone Era Wednesdays July 10, 17, and 24 2:00—4:00 pm Main Street Chapel
lthough federal highway construction started in 1916, the U.S. became a caroriented nation after World War II. Some of us recall tourist travel on Route 66 or the Lincoln Highway when they were two-lane roads, eating homemade sandwiches or food from roadside diners, spending the night at modest tourist courts while on the way to the Grand Canyon, Mt. Rushmore, or lesser known travel destinations. Then came the interstate highways, Howard Johnsons and Holiday Inn. We will recall the years when gas was cheap and cars were large through film clips, historical accounts, travel music and our own memories. Instructor Carl Graves, Ph.D., holds a master’s degree in U.S. history from KU and a doctorate from Harvard. He taught at the university and community college levels, and at Kansas City’s Pembroke Hill School.
Summer Book Group
Tuesday, July 23 at 2:00 pm The Evergreens Community Room We have chosen The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman. It is a true story in which the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo saved hundreds of people from Nazi hands. When Germany invaded Poland, Stuka bombers devastated Warsaw—and the city's zoo along with it. With most of their animals dead, zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski began smuggling Jews into empty cages. With her exuberant prose and exquisite sensitivity to the natural world, Diane Ackerman engages us viscerally in the lives of the zoo animals, their keepers, and their hidden visitors. Please call Jamie at 274-3398 for a copy of the book.
