News: Case Management Services Information OLDER AMERICANS MONTH 2014 Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow.

While the Stoughton Area Senior Center provides services, support, and resources to older adults year-round, Older American Month offers an opportunity for us to provide specialized information and services around the important topic of injury prevention. This information will help older adults take control of their safety and live longer, healthier lives. Healthy Habits for a Healthy You There is no need to revamp your entire diet and lifestyle to improve your health—even small actions can pay off in a big boost to your health. Check out the ideas below and try the ones that sound right for you. 1-Get your full eight hours. Just as a healthy diet and regular exercise are necessary and important for good health, so is sleep. Cutting back on snooze-time can lead to an out-of-control appetite (some studies show that people who sleep less are more likely to be overweight), a greater risk for coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes. 2-Rise and shine—and eat. Breakfast gets your body’s metabolism going again after a night of sleeping, and gives you the gradual and adequate energy you need to get through the morning. 3-Wash your hands. From banishing cold and flu germs to preventing food borne illnesses, frequent hand-washing is one of the smartest preventive habits you can adopt. Wash your hands with warm water and soap before handling food, eating, or touching your face, and after using the bathroom or coming into contact with potentially contaminated objects such as doorknobs, toys and menus. Be sure to clean the entire surface of your palms and the tops of your hand, as well as under your nails. A thorough hand-washing should take about 20 seconds. 4-Know your family health history. Your family’s medical history can give you important informa-

tion about your own health. Many diseases, such as heart disease, breast cancer, diabetes, and depression, can have a genetic component. The more you know about the health of your relatives, the better informed you’ll be about your own risk factors and how to manage them.

5-Eat mindfully. One of the significant differences between people who successfully manage their weight and people who constantly struggle is mindful eating. Turn off the TV or computer, sit down at a table with your food on a plate, and focus on eating. Savor the smell and enjoy the taste. Put your fork down between bites and take time to really enjoy your meal. Chances are you will eat less and feel more satisfied. 6-Add variety to your diet. Wild salmon and sardines are just a couple of the fish that provide heart-healthy fats such as omega-3, which lower your risk of cardiovascular disease and help preserve your cognitive function. Aim for two servings a week; more than that may add too much mercury to your system. And finally, try to eat 5-7 servings a day of fruits and vegetables, and minimize your intake of carbohydrates. 7-Volunteer. In addition to helping others, volunteers themselves often benefit from “giving back” to the communities in which they live and work, and enjoy a rewarding sense of doing something good for someone else. 8-Maintain strong family and social networks. Research has shown that people who have family and friends they can turn to for support and companionship may be healthier and less likely to experience depression than those who spend most of their time alone. Looking for new friends? Join a club, take a class or volunteer. Article continued on page 4 Case Managers schedules do vary, please call ahead to schedule appointments. Thank you.

News: Case Management Information 9-Take a time out. At least once a day, close your eyes and focus on taking 10 deep, full breaths. Inhale through your nose, feel your diaphragm expand, and exhale through your mouth. Deep, focused breathing slows your heart rate, calms the body and, as a result calms your mind and reduces stress. Mix in at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity at least five days a week as well. Choose something you enjoy and will stick to. Recent studies found that brisk walking is just as good for heart as jogging, or try biking or swimming. You needn’t do it all at once, two 15-minute workouts or three 10-minute blocks work equally well.

10- Drink more water to prevent constipation , dehydration, and other related diseases. Whether you drink bottled, filter, or tap water helps keep your cells hydrated, flushes out toxins, and prevents dehydration. (Adapted from Region III Aging Services Newsletter.)

it to all your health care providers. Keep one copy in your medicine cabinet and one in your wallet or purse. 3-Take your medicine in the exact amount and at the time your doctor prescribes. 4-Use a memory aid to take your medication on time. Some types of reminders are meal times, bed times, charts, calendars and weekly pill boxes. 5-Do not skip doses of medicine or take half doses to save money. Talk with your Doctor or pharmacist if you cannot afford the prescribed medicine. There may be less costly choices or special programs to help with the cost of certain drugs 6-Don’t take medicine in the dark. To avoid making a mistake, turn your light on before reaching for your pills.

Injury Prevention Tips (from EOHHS) Home Modification

7-Throw away outdated medicines.

1-Keep stairs and walkways clear of clutter and phone and electrical cords.


2-Use non-slip mats in the tub/shower. Install grab bars in tub and near toilet.

Have your vision checked once a year. Use night lights between bedroom and bathroom; on stairs.

3-Use only throw rugs with rubber, nonskid backing that are in good shape. 4-Wear sturdy, well-fitted, low-heeled shoes with non-slip soles. These are safer than high-heels, thick soled athletic shoes, slippers or stocking feet. 5-Take your time. Being rushed or distracted greatly increases your chance of falling. Get your balance when first standing up.

Medication Safety 1-Read and save all written information that comes with the medicine.

FRIENDSHIP FUND FOR ACTIVITIES AT THE CENTER If you are in need of financial assistance to participate in activities at the Senior Center, there is a fund available to help you. For more information please contact Cindy McGlynn/Director 873-8585.

Kitchen Corner

How Much Vitamin D Do You Need? Bone health was the single focus of the Institute of Medicine's recommendations on how much vitamin D and calcium people should get. The recommendations for adults up to age 69 rose to 600 IU/day, and to 800 IU/day for adults starting at age 70. Older adults need more vitamin D because as they age, their skin does not produce vitamin D efficiently, they spend less time outdoors, and they tend to not get enough vitamin D. The sun is an excellent source of vitamin D, but it is hard to quantify how much vitamin D you get from time in the sun and the risk of skin cancer may outweigh the benefits. “Food first,” says Baylor College of Medicine dietitian Keli Hawthorne. "Supplements can fill in the gaps but it is always better to try to meet your nutritional needs with foods that contain fiber, phytonutrients, and so much more.” Unless you enjoy a diet that includes fatty fish or fish liver oils, it may be hard to get enough vitamin D naturally without eating fortified foods or taking a supplement. "The major dietary source of vitamin D comes from fortified diary, along with some yogurts and cereals," Hawthorne says. Mushrooms, eggs, cheese, and beef liver contain small amounts.

Nutrition Program Information: All meals are provided by Dane County through Consolidated Food Services. They are packaged, delivered and served by Senior Center volunteers. If you are a vegetarian or have special dietary needs, please call and talk with Lisa regarding your meal options. Nutrition Site: The Senior Center serves lunch every weekday at 12:00 PM. Menu pg.15. Home Delivered Meals: Meal delivery is available to homebound older adults in the Stoughton Area School District every weekday. Cost of Meals: Individuals 60 years or older pay by donation. Individuals under the age of 60 must pay the total cost . Meal Site: $7.50 Delivered Meal: $7.75. Please be reminded that cancellations and reservations be made by 1:00PM the previous working day. Any cancellations made on the day of, are still subject to payment to the county.

Community & Center News Older Americans Month 2014 Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow. Older adults have made countless contributions and sacrifices to ensure a better life for future generations. Since 1963, communities across the country have shown their gratitude by celebrating Older Americans Month each May. This celebration recognizes older Americans for their contributions and demonstrates our nation’s commitment to helping them stay healthy and active. This year’s theme for Older Americans Month is “Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow.” The theme focuses on injury prevention and safety to encourage older adults to protect themselves and remain active and independent for as long as possible.

6th Grade Essay Contest Winners Luncheon The Stoughton Area Senior Center, sponsors an essay contest each year for sixth graders in Stoughton. Participating students wrote an essay on “My Best Older Friend” or “My Grandparents”. Congratulations to our 6th grade essay contest winners! We will be having a special lunch presentation at noon on Tuesday, May 21st where you can hear their essays, enjoy lunch and help us celebrate. Please call 873-8585 by noon May 20th to reserve your lunch.

Unintentional injuries to this population result in at least 6 million medically treated injuries and more than 30,000 deaths every year. With an emphasis on safety during Older Americans Month, we encourage older adults to learn about the variety of ways they can avoid the leading causes of injury, like falls. While the Stoughton Area Senior Center provides services, support, and resources to older adults year-round, Older Americans Month offers an opportunity for us to provide specialized information and services around the important topic of injury prevention. This information will help older adults take control of their safety and live longer, healthier lives. See article on page 3 and 4 or talk with one of our Case Managers.
