“home is where the heart is” SUMMER 2018

GRIEF IS COMPLICATED, BUT IT’S WORSE FOR TEENS In any school classroom, at this moment, there is likely one or more students in the midst of grieving. The death may be from illness, accident, violence or even suicide. Just when they should be enjoying a first date or getting a driver’s permit, they’re experiencing devastating loss. One of our students was willing to share her story: Two years ago, Sarah's focus was on school, friends and softball. A good student and athlete, she looked forward to high school. All that changed in an instant on New Year’s Eve in 2016. Her father had difficulty walking and didn’t feel well. The doctors, unable to find a cause, wrote off his symptoms as a virus. Unfortunately, the symptoms persisted and he was finally diagnosed with a rare form of Multiple Sclerosis. Her mother’s focus turned to her father’s care at the hospital and Sarah was left in charge of her younger siblings. Her father’s symptoms advanced quickly and he was moved to a hospital in Los Angeles. Sarah’s responsibility for her siblings increased. School, sports and social activities were pushed aside. At just 15 years old, she didn’t have any time to think of herself.

SHOCK, GRIEF AND INCOMPREHENSIBLE LOSS

Three exhausting months later, on March 27th, her father was declared brain dead. She and her mother had to make the heartbreaking decision to end life support. Sarah says she’ll never forget what it felt like to watch her father die. She never wants anyone to experience that. Ever. After his passing, Sarah continued to worry about her siblings. She wasn’t able to feel her grief. She was certain she didn’t want pity or things handed to her. Her emotions spiraled into depression and anxiety. She made bad relationship choices. Finally, her health suffered and she was misdiagnosed with Leukemia. Shortly before starting treatment, she was re-diagnosed with a simple virus, not Leukemia. Sarah said she had to grow up fast and be more mature. She had to miss a lot of the experiences her classmates were able to enjoy. She regrets that her dad didn’t get a chance to see her make the Varsity softball team her Freshman year. Through her grief group experiences over the last 2 ½ years, she’s learned to “let people be there” for her. She’s able to “put her emotions out there” and make better relationship choices. Her family is healing. Her mother remarried and they recently welcomed a new baby brother to their family.

HELP THEM OPEN UP

As any parent knows, getting a teen to open up about anything is just about impossible. Getting them to talk about grief is doubly difficult. Teens often hide their true feelings; acting as though nothing has happened. They just don’t have the words to explain the emotions—and the heartache—they feel. TEEN GRIEF continues on page 4

Honoring the Caregiver

Caregiving is a journey—one that it is stressful and hard to do alone. Family caregivers spend an average of 20 hours per week (many 24/7) providing care for their loved one. Although caregiving is a labor of love, the toll it can take on an individual or family’s physical, emotional, or economic wellbeing can be devastating. Livingston is honored to partner with so many wonderful family caregivers; helping them to ease the stress of caregiving. We were personally touched by Cheryl Peay’s story of her caregiving journey with her Mother. Cheryl shared her experience with Livingston at our Annual Meeting in March. She talked about how important Livingston was to her and her Mom during the Thomas Fire. (Annual Meeting: Reflecting on 2017) In our 71-year history, we have never turned away a home health, hospice or palliative care patient because they could not pay. Our home health, hospice, and palliative care services are available to everyone in Ventura County. This legacy of caring is only possible with support from generous and loyal donors— like you. This past month highlighted how integral donors are to this legacy of caring. Nearly 200 donors and numerous sponsors came together at the 10th Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon to honor two special mothers, beloved caregivers to their families, friends and Ventura County neighbors. The event helped raise much-needed funds for our subsidized care patients. (Honoring our Mothers) Another 560 community members attended the 22nd Annual Camarillo Hospice Garden Tour; an event that raises money to support bereavement and grief programs for children and adults. (Brilliant Sunshine & Five Fabulous Gardens) Together, every day, we are providing care to hundreds of our neighbors who are homebound, frail, elderly, disabled or terminally ill. Together we can ensure that no one has to travel this journey alone. 2 Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association•lmvna.org

TEEN GRIEF continued from page 1

They seek distractions rather than staying with the grief process long enough to experience relief. Teens need a place where feelings are expressed in a healthy, helping situation—without fear of blame, anger, sorrow, or loss of face. Being able to express their fear and anger to someone who accepts them totally just as they are, without shaming them or trying to get them to “cheer up” can be very healing.

GROUP DYNAMICS

Amanda McQuade-Crawford, AMFT is one of three counselors on our staff using art therapy techniques. Amanda and her colleagues use art as a means to communicate and heal. Amanda is quick to point out that the focus of the group is on the students — and what they need at that time. It is a place to vent, without filters, and seek help from others in the group. Her students run the gamut of the high school population — freshmen and seniors, gamers and athletes, shy and outgoing. They have one thing in common — the need to talk to someone in a safe place. Art therapy is about the process involved while making art—the interactions and conversations—not the product. Her goal is to allow the students to find resilience in themselves and discover self-soothing techniques they can use throughout their lives. This program is funded entirely through community donations and grants. Please contact Molly Corbett at (805) 642-0239 ext. 603 if you’d like to know how you can support this vital program.

FINDING THE RIGHT TOOLS

Amanda often starts students with a coloring project to break the ice. She offers students a wide variety of patterns from which to choose. When students concentrate on their projects, words and feelings flow better. Students are able to open up and share feelings and experiences more easily. As students are more comfortable with “feeling,” Amanda moves on to more advanced projects such as masks, vision, or dream boards. With masks students are encouraged to show the face they show the world as opposed to how they feel. The contrast between a student’s “public” face versus what they inwardly feel is often quite striking. Vision or dream boards help students map the way they want their new life to look. They are collages of images, photographs, and phrases glued to a poster board. The board may show the journey they take or be an expression of what they want from life. Students are encouraged to talk about the images and what they represent.

NO QUICK FIX

Livingston has teen grief programs throughout Ventura County and students are referred by teachers and counselors. They want to make the high school years as stress-free as possible. Students stay in the program as long as they need the support and Livingston grief counselors often talk — or text — with their students outside of their time at school. The hope is that by the time the students graduate they have been able to learn coping skills that will serve them throughout their lives.

Personal Care is Peace of Mind Livingston CareGivers has provided vital, non-medical personal assistance in the home to residents of Ventura County for over 15 years. Our clients include not only the frail, disabled and elderly, but anyone and any age that needs personal help at home. When daily needs are managed and addressed, people can remain in their home, which is often a preferred option to long-term placement. Many studies show that home is where the elderly prefer to be and where they do best.

ANNUAL MEETING Reflecting on 2017 We are immensely proud of Livingston’s ability to meet the needs of our patients, clients and their families. At our Annual Meeting, we had the opportunity to share the results of our remarkable 70th year serving Ventura County. We welcomed donors, volunteers, healthcare industry leaders, and community members to the Hilton Garden Inn in Oxnard to hear Dr. Dial recap the year. Three events stood out last year: ensuring patient safety during the Thomas Fire; the 70th Anniversary Celebration honoring Tom Pecht; and our merger with Camarillo Hospice.

CAREGIVING IS AN ACT OF LOVE

The Thomas Fire that devastated our community highlighted our value to provide care even in the most difficult times. We successfully tracked and cared for over 400 home health and 100 hospice families during this crisis.

Martha Baumann was one of our CareGivers clients affected by the fire. Standing by her mother, with her hand tenderly resting on her mother’s shoulder, Cheryl Peay, shared their story at the meeting:

Lanyard K. Dial, MD, President/CEO and Medical Director

I want you to know we’ve been through natural disaster before, but my mom’s anxiety level during the fire was high— and increased as the night went along. Dealing with my mom and my autistic son was challenging. My experience with other caregiving agencies had been that when a disaster happens, they don’t come. When I heard the knock on the door at midnight,

I was so relieved to find our personal care assistant Manuela Santoyo. She went straight in to my mom, held her hand, sat with her and said the rosary. Her calming presence allowed me to go and comfort my son. I was so grateful that she stayed up all night with us. The next day, John Macias, Livingston CareGivers Director, called to ask if we were okay; if we needed anything. I was overwhelmed and so grateful to hear his voice. The next night, even though we were under a state of emergency, Manuela came—just like she always does from midnight until 4 a.m. It is comforting to know I can get some rest so I can take care of my family. Caregiving is an act of love and the most intimate thing you can do. [This] is a journey I’m taking with my mom. I’m so grateful Livingston is holding my hand on this path with my mom.

Martha Baumann and Cheryl Peay

Martha’s story highlights Livingston’s commitment to providing care whenever, and wherever, it is needed. Each year, Livingston helps more than 3,000 Ventura County residents recuperate, recover, or simply maintain a safe lifestyle in their home. lmvna.org•Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association 5

Honoring our Mothers

On April 27, Livingston celebrated its 10th annual Mother’s Day Luncheon honoring Carolyn Daily Menne and remembering Helen Kimball Pidduck, two dedicated mothers who gave tirelessly to their families and community. Over 190 guests paid tribute to these two amazing women at the Las Posas Country Club. Carolyn Daily Menne is deeply involved in a myriad of Ventura County organizations and causes. Her two sons, Martin and John, addressed the guests on how deserving their mother is of this honor. Our in memory of tribute went to Helen Kimball Pidduck. Son Richard Pidduck and longtime friend John Orr recalled their memories of Helen, a woman who clearly touched the lives of many.

Blended Giving

imilar to finding your perfect coffee blend, there is a way to blend your personal philanthropy

that is right for you.

The idea is that you make a starting gift with a current gift of cash, securities or real estate.

Then you find the planned gift method, maybe a bequest, charitable trust or gift annuity, that works best for your situation. With the planned gift, you set it up now and enjoy the benefits

and security during your lifetime, and you get the satisfaction of knowing your planned gift will make a big difference by adding to the gift you already started.

Contact Molly Corbett at (805) 642-0239 ext. 603 to begin learning about the many different ways you can create a custom gift. Please let us know how we can help you.
