A group of young DJs is helping seniors jog their memories at a Scarborough nursing home. The music memory project at Extendicare Guildwood on Guildwood Parkway was launched last Thursday. The project, a partnership between the home and 4Life Foundation, will help residents with dementia through music therapy. The DJs, who are students from nearby Sir Robert Borden BTI, are playing more than 200 songs from the 1920s to the 1970s to 15 residents in an effort to identify their favourite tunes. “If they show a negative sign, we just skip to the next one,” said Philemon Joseph, 17. “If they show that they like the song we keep the song, so the

song can be in the playlist, so they can hear it over and over again.” A customized playlist will be designed for each resident. “It helps to bring memories back,” said Sandy Griffin, resident program manager at Extendicare Guildwood. “They’re tapping their feet, smiling. Something happens when you’re playing their music...When jazz was on, Mr. Haywood immediately said ‘Oh, I like that song’ and he’s someone who’s withdrawn, and you wouldn’t expect a response from him.” Griffin stressed the music project doesn’t slow down dementia but it does improve quality of life. “It’s helping to bring back a little bit of who that person is, so by listening to the music they’re >>>MUSIC, page 10

Popescu said she has known Pop and his family for about 12 years. “A short time after he came (to Canada) he lost one of his daughters,” she said. “We’ve been very close to them because they went through so much.” Popescu said Pop’s oldest daughter passed away from an illness at age 15 about 12 years ago.

And with the increased traffic volume on our roads that comes with the fall season, there comes a greater need for vigilance and proper planning for all of us making our way around the city. We know Toronto has traffic congestion challenges. The longest commuting times in the country are in the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area, according a StatsCan report released in late June. Traffic congestion has been identified as a major economic impediment by the Toronto Region Board of Trade, costing billions to the greater Toronto economy. The need for a sustained commitment from all levels of government to funding transit infrastructure is acute. And the discussion about our view what’s happening on our roadin Toronto is not confined Drivers must ways to congestion. There’s safety, too. pack patience, A pair of recent schoolchildren pedestrian deaths, including plan ahead the tragic losses of a 14-year-old North York girl and a five-yearold girl in Scarborough, spurred the Toronto District School Board last week to request chair Chris Bolton to enter into discussions with the city, police and other school boards to talk traffic safety. Trustees have directed that those representatives look at ways to reduce traffic risks to students (an increased use of crossing guards is already one suggestion). That means there’s a lot happening on our roads. So for motorists, trip planning is important. Leave yourself plenty of time to get your destination. Remember, beyond traffic congestion caused by any ongoing roadwork, there are some new capital projects underway in the city as well that will impact travel times. For example, a second tunnel borer machine is about to start digging below Eglinton Avenue West as part of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail project – a project that, once completed, should play a part in alleviating congestion. But while the tunneling lasts, one should expect traffic delays. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with construction projects and road closures. The city ohas an updated web page detailing road closures and their durations. Check it out at http://bit.ly/1goY61f In the meantime, if you’re heading out on the roads, be alert, practice patience, and plan ahead.

Shorter contracts to build subway To the editor: Ten years to design and build the Scarborough subway extension is preposterous. Much of the challenging work can be completed without shutting down the Scarborough light rail. Rather than a mega contract, they need to establish four smaller contracts. Contract 1 is the extension from the Kennedy subway station in wide loop almost to the RT tracks. Co n t r a c t 2 s t a r t s a t Sheppard moving to the Scarborough Town Centre to include a new station in the parking lot. Contract 3 involves closing Lawrence station to rebuild for a subway. Contract 4, which involves re-tracking the open right of way, only starts when the other three contracts are complete. With proper contracts and proper planning, the RT will only shut down for a short time. George Heighington

Subway closures planned next month

Busy week for city committees

A planned October mid-week closure of a portion of the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line is now off. Two closures are still planned for the line next month to assist the ongoing installation of a new subway signaling system. But TTC engineers have now determined it is no longer necessary to close the line between Tuesday, Oct. 15 and Friday, Oct. 18 from King to Osgoode station. The line will still close Thanksgiving weekend, Oct. 12 to 14, from Bloor to Union station, and from Oct 19 to 20 from Bloor to St. George station.

It’s a busy week ahead for members of Toronto’s standing committees at city hall, kicking off today with the economic development committee, looking ahead to World Pride 2014. The international Pride event will be coming to Toronto next year, and PRIDE Toronto’s executive director Kevin Beaulieu will be on hand to provide a presentation to the committee on the economic uplift the city can expect from the event. It’s to take place June 20 to 29 and will be the first World Pride event held in North America.

the mirror’s six on six with taibu’s executive director liben gibremikael

our exclusive look

1

TAIBU marks fifth anniversary

The Mirror asks six questions of Liben Gibremikael, executive director of TAIBU Community Health Centre in Scarborough which focuses on the health needs of the black population.

On Saturday there’s a celebration for the fifth anniversary of TAIBU, but TAIBU was announced in 2005 and first opened its doors in 2009?

We start counting from 2008 because that’s when the organization was incorporated as its own entity. That’s also the year we had our first board of directors. Before that it was the Black Health Alliance which was the sponsoring agency doing all the groundwork. The provincial government was expanding community health centres across the province (and) the announcement was made here

2

What does it mean for TAIBU to choose diabetes, hypertension, mental health and sickle cell diseases as its priorities?

TAIBU is different because it focuses on a priority population, the black population. Chronic diseases (are) killer diseases in the black community. The black population is about at three times greater risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and complications from it. Hypertension is huge in the black community. Sickle cell disease is another chronic condition that is not being well-served. Mental health (is) a very sensitive issue in the community. It’s not talked about. On

3

We have clients that have two and three jobs to make ends meet. When do they have the time to prepare a healthy meal for themselves or for the family? How can they afford that? That’s what makes the work at TAIBU exciting. We can see so many challenges out there, but that is what a community health centre should be about, is addressing those challenges.

Would you say TAIBU has a unique approach to its community programs?

We try to be creative. In youth services, most of the time what we’re trying to do is create an environment for them to be able to participate fully through, for example, the introduction of media elements in programs. We are now just completing one year (of) Ubuntu, which in a Zulu

6

labels can be given to you. There is a perceived mistrust. Community members do not trust the services because of historical experiences, and how do we bridge that by providing a safe environment for them to feel comfortable? Let’s say they go for mental health support, and they talk more about their spiritual experience, that they rely on spiritual intervention for their well-being. That is a cultural and spiritual experience, but in a professional setting that could be considered as being part of the illness or disease ... rather than using that as a way of introducing changes and improvements in their well-being.

It sounds like people working here have to consider an extra dimension to a lot of what they do.

The model of community health centres are (looking at) the social determinants of health. In Malvern, a high proportion of the population has a very low income. Forty per cent of our clients are under the poverty line. There are poverty issues, there are unemployment issues, there are educational issues. There are discrimination and racism issues that all providers here look at.

5

the other side, we have health services that do not cater to the cultural aspects of the people’s experience and symptoms. The black population is over-represented in involuntary services like mental health institutions, criminal justice system (and) child welfare agencies, (yet) we also have under-representation in voluntary services where there’s support. TAIBU’s vision is to reverse that, to see that we can prevent chronic conditions by providing appropriate services.

You’re saying part of the problem is lack of culturally appropriate services. What difference do those services make?

If we look at diabetes and other chronic conditions, one of the challenges is eating habits and diet and lifestyle management. We can talk about the Canada Food Guide (and what it says about) carbohydrates, maybe pasta. If the community’s not eating pasta, it’s going to be difficult to discuss. Culturally appropriate services would (look) at what their cultural eating habits and food types are, and then suggesting how they can cook their food in a healthy way. Sometimes when people bring spiritual elements into a professional environment then they can be regarded as delusional, or some other

4

at Malvern Town Centre. The highlight was the establishment of TAIBU to serve the black community across the GTA. My background is in social work, mental health, community development. TAIBU is one of a kind. It’s probably the only community health centre in Canada that has a focus on the black population, so that was very exciting.

language translates (as), “I am who I am because of who you are.” It’s a kind of community village concept. The idea is to create a village of older adults ... where they can take care of themselves as seniors but also the younger generation through inter-generational activities.

At the 2011 opening for the new offices outside Malvern Town Centre, Dr. Christopher Morgan of the BHA said TAIBU will do “spectacular things... It’s going to be an agent of change.” Is it possible there’s too much pressure on TAIBU to do all these things?

Definitely. The need out there is so vast and varied and complex, that it creates a pressure for an organization like TAIBU to address this. And sometimes I get a reprimand from our board of directors saying we are doing too many things too quickly.

As a young organization, not five years old, to be able to gain the trust of the community in such a big way has been the underlying factor. It takes a long time to get the trust of the community. I think the community here in Malvern (have) engaged with the organization.

Elite field set for Saturday’s Zoo Run The Oasis Zoo Run, set for this Saturday, has two important championships on the line. As usual, the annual run is serving as Canada’s national 10-kilometre championship and also as the finale for the annual Timex National Road Race Series. On the other hand, while it will attract dozens of elite runners – including all of Canada’s marathoners from both the 2012 Olympic Games and the 2013 world championships – it’s also very much a part of the local grass roots running circuit.

The 10K race features different start times for a complete range of competitive levels and there is also a 5K and even a ‘Cub Run’ for the kids. All runs are sold out, having easily met their cap of 3,000 participants for the 10K, 1500 for the 5K and 300 for the Cub Run. The elite men’s field includes defending champion Reid Coolsaet of Hamilton, Ont., as well as Eric Gillis of Antigonish, N.S., and Dylan Wykes of Kingston, ON. All three represented Canada at the 2012 Olympic

Games in London, England. The men’s race will also feature Rob Watson of London, ON., who competed for Canada in the marathon at the recent World Championship. Watson was runner-up in last year’s event. The women’s elite field includes a pair of competitors from Canada’s 2013 World Championship team in Krista DuChene of Brantford, ON, and Lanni Marchant of London, ON.

Music Memory Project links seniors, students >>>from page 1 wanting to express themselves the way that they would’ve in their earlier days,” she said. “It brings back that part of life to them, and that’s significant because even if we can nudge a small bit of positive memory that makes the world of difference.”

Bridges gap After hearing a song, one resident told the DJ: “I have to go feed my kids. I’ve got to go.” The project also bridges the gap between youth and the elderly.

They love having the youth in the home. They respond well to youth. – Sandy Griffin, Extendicare Guildwood

“We’re always open to having inter-generational programs with the seniors,” said Griffin. “They love having the youth in the home. They respond well to youth.” It’s also a learning experience for the teens. Joseph said many of the

tunes he’s now playing is new to him. “But listening to some of the older stuff, it’s actually really nice music,” he added. Joseph Khargie of 4Life Foundation said he hopes the program will bring comfort and joy to seniors. “My hope is that youth would engage with seniors, with seniors enjoying it.” The aim of the foundation is to engage communities while empowering youth.

Summer Games was to build a base for the future. The TEAM Fund helps us fulfill this goal.” Grants will be awarded by a selection committee and will take into account a number of criteria including the athletes ability to excel in a particular sport, economic circumstances, and recom-

mendations from schools and sports clubs. The application deadline for the 2014 grant year is Oct. 31, 2013.

What an honour and surprise it was to be chosen a Carrier of the Month! My son and I have been delivering the Scarborough Mirror together for about a year and a half. I prepare the flyers and newspapers, and he usually enjoys putting them into the mail box (he is very good at that and puts them in carefully and neatly). Delivering our Tuesday and Thursday flyers and newspapers has been a great way for us to meet our neighbours and get some fresh air and exercise together. We have met a lot of great people and enjoy talking to them and getting to know them better. And the extra money sure helps to pay for a new toy (or two)! We look forward to delivering the paper for many years to come! Thank you.
