Local Garden Tour Wednesday June 25th 10:30 AM Join us for a tour of the beautiful gardens at the home of Jay Hathaway. Visit the Senior Center’s “backyard neighbor,” a largely shaded urban home garden. The plot fills the entire lot with a mix of seasonally changing perennials and colorful annuals; plus water features, garden art and small seating areas. An extensive hosta collection is interspersed with ferns, grasses, and lilies. Access requires ability to walk an unevenly sloped pathway from the Washington Street sidewalk.

News: Case Management Services Information Insomnia excerpt from

Insomnia is the most common sleep complaint at any age. It affects almost half of adults 60 and older. Symptoms If you have insomnia, you may experience any one or any combination of the following symptoms.  taking a long time -- more than 30 to 45 minutes -- to fall asleep  waking up many times each night  waking up early and being unable to get back to sleep  waking up feeling tired, and unable to function well during the day Short-term insomnia, lasting less than one month, may result from a medical or psychiatric condition. Or it may occur after a change in personal circumstances like losing a loved one, relocating, financial worries,or being hospitalized. If insomnia lasts longer than a month, it is considered chronic, even if the original cause has been resolved. Many Possible Causes Many factors can cause insomnia. However, the most common reason older adults wake up at night is to go to the bathroom. Prostate enlargement in men and continence problems in women are often the cause. Unfortunately, waking up to go to the bathroom at night also places older adults at greater risk for falling. Disorders that cause pain or discomfort during the night such as heartburn, arthritis, menopause, and cancer also can cause you to lose sleep. Medical conditions such as heart failure and lung disease may make it more difficult to sleep through the night, too. Neurologic conditions such as Parkinson's disease and dementia are often a source of sleep problems, as are psychiatric conditions, such as depression. Although depression and insomnia are often related, it is currently unclear whether one causes the other.

Many older adults take a variety of different medications that may negatively affect their sleep. Many medications have side effects that can cause sleepiness or affect daytime functioning.

Relief for Insomnia Lifestyle changes often can help relieve shortterm insomnia. Avoid substances that make insomnia worse. These include caffeine, alcohol, and certain over-the-counter and prescription medicines. Try to adopt bedtime habits that make it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. Some people watch the evening news, read a book, or soak in a warm bath. A type of counseling called cognitive-behavioral therapy can help relieve chronic (ongoing) insomnia. This therapy encourages good sleep habits and uses several methods such as relaxation and biofeedback to relieve sleep anxiety. Many prescription medicines are used to treat insomnia. They can help relieve insomnia and re-establish a regular sleep schedule. Some are meant for short-term use, while others are meant for longer use. Talk to your doctor about the benefits and side effects of insomnia medicines. Some over-the-counter products claim to treat insomnia. Although these products may make you sleepy, talk to your doctor before taking them. If your insomnia is the symptom or side effect of another problem, it's important to treat the underlying cause, if possible. Talk to your physician.

News: Case Management Information Senior Bullying by Kendra LaGrange, UW School of Social Work Graduate Student Intern, Stoughton Area Senior Center

The term “bully” is one historically reserved for children on the playground. But in fact the awareness of bullying among all age groups, including older adults is on the rise. An estimated 10-20% of seniors surveyed in America have experienced some type of senior-to-senior bullying and professionals in the field believe that to be an underreported number. Bullying may be defined as the activity of repeated aggressive behavior intended to hurt another person physically or mentally. Bullying can be verbal, physical, or anti-social by excluding people from events or common areas. Passive-Aggressive behaviors such as gossiping or belittling someone also count as bullying behavior. The impact of bullying on victims can include anger, anxiety, self-isolation, reduced self-esteem, depression and health changes. Many victims of bullying have trouble defending themselves and feel like they have no power. They may have a developmental delay or suffer from dementia. People with cognitive, intellectual or mental health issues may have mannerisms that can be irritating to others which bullies may cite as justification for bullying. A lot of bullying arises from people not understanding the behaviors that come with dementia, mental illness, and developmental disabilities. Other people simply cannot tolerate those who are “different” from them out of fear or not knowing. 4

Observers/ Bystanders and the Negative Effects of Doing Nothing- When a bully is not held accountable by observers for his or her behavior or words, it encourages the bullying behavior and the behavior will continue. It’s up to the whole community to tell and show the person who is being hurtful that the behaviors are not acceptable. There are many reasons why individuals choose not to intervene. They may be relieved that the victim is someone else, and not them. Or, they may take vicarious satisfaction in the bullying or they may worry that if they intervene they will be the next victim of the bullying. Sadly, bullying impacts both the victim and the bystanders by perpetuating an unpleasant atmosphere and causing harm to physical and emotional health. What can you do if you are being bullied or if you see bullying happening? There are many empowering techniques a person who either sees bullying or is being bullied can use to intervene and increase self-esteem and assertiveness:

Ignore the bully; or if called for, say “NO” to a pushy or disrespectful person or action

Persist in living your life despite the fact that the bully exists

Maintain a positive attitude, respond in a positive manner and leave the situation as necessary

Remain calm, breathe. Do not react in a hostile manner

Connect with others who understand. Most people are committed to an atmosphere of equality and respect regardless of differences

The most important stand everyone can make when bullying behaviors present themselves is to commit to and promote a culture with principles of equality and respect for everyone. Remember the golden rule: Treat others how you yourself wish to be treated! Please call the Stoughton Area Senior Center for more information.

Kitchen Corner

Summer is Here ... Be Food Safe Tote Safety:

 

Wash your grocery tote frequently.

Place fresh or frozen raw meat, poultry and fish in separate totes from your ready to eat foods.

Clean all areas where you place your tote, like counters or tables to reduce cross contamination.

Put meat, poultry and fish in separate plastic bags before placing in totes.

Store clean totes in a dry location, avoid leaving them in the trunk of a vehicle.

Home Safety:

Use 2 cutting boards-one for meat and the other for ready to eat foods. Different colors work great.

 

Use a food thermometer and cooking guide.

Have plenty of soap nearby so everyone helping in the kitchen can wash their hands often.

Sponges and towels can soak up bacteria and cross contamination, better to use paper towels.

Store leftovers in shallow covered containers to reduce their temperatures faster and help them stay safer, longer.

News: COA & Community Commission on Aging Meeting Highlights for May 6, 2014 Center Concerns  Senior Center participant Ruby Hauge and City Council member Paul Lawrence discussed their frustrations with the COA’s decision to close the Center during Syttende Mai weekend.  Based on the original cost and liability concerns discussed for months in prior meetings and the newsletter, the COA confirmed the Center will be closed over Syttende Mai. A motion was made to revisit the issue next month to discuss how to handle next year’s event. Volunteer Recognition  Senior Center volunteers were granted “Stoughton Volunteers of the Year” and will be honored in the Syttende Mai Parade.

Center News:  Thanks to grant funds we are still seeking quotes to redo the main level flooring, chairs and tables. So far, the quote costs are very high, so Cindy is pursuing more quotes and further fundraisers.  Distributed brochure samples; there are not enough members for a PR Committee, so Cindy is requesting brochure advice directly from COA.  Evaluation Committee reviewed a survey to be used to determine the type of improvements most desired by the community and the best partnerships available to sustain any changes to the nutrition program. Legislative Update:  RSVP of Dane County, a volunteer program that the majority of our volunteers are registered through for mileage reimbursement, is facing a 69% reduction in the President’s 2015 Budget. Call RSVP at 238-7787 to support the maintaining of its current funding levels.  As of April 2014, all adults without dependent children who are within 100% of the Federal Poverty Level are now eligible for health care through BadgerCare. Next meeting: 11:00 AM, June 3, 2014 Stoughton Area Senior Center See the City website for full meeting minutes.
