Lilacs & Greensleeves: CP; VITAS Healthcare

Care4You is proud to feature VITAS Healthcare as our Community Partner! Their kind and caring spirit is well known in the community. Thank you VITAS for everything that you do in service to those in need at what can be such a difficult time in their lives! It is comforting to know that you are there so willing to help!

The Best in Hospice Care in Southern California

VITAS Healthcare provides end-of-life care for adult and pediatric patients with life-limiting illnesses. We work with patients and families to provide comfort and preserve dignity in the face of terminal illness.

Comfort Care at the End of Life

Hospice is about living with comfort and dignity during the last months, weeks and days of life. It is a commitment to caring for those who have a life-limiting illness. By promoting comfort, palliative care allows people near the end of life to live more fully at home, wherever that might be, surrounded by family, culture and tradition.

Hospice is not about losing hope or about giving up. Hospice is about redefining hope: hope for a richer, more peaceful end-of-life experience; hope for an easier transition for your family through sensitive grief support.

Hospice Care at Home

When everything is changing, VITAS helps things stay familiar. We help patients stay home and in the Southern California area whenever possible—whether home is a private residence, an assisted living or long term care facility, or even a hospital room. We work with patients’ personal physicians, so patients keep the doctors they know and trust. No matter where care takes place, we coordinate closely with all caregivers, spiritual advisors, families and friends to ensure the patients’ optimal well-being.

Palliative Care

VITAS is experienced in palliative care, a field of medicine that focuses not on curing illness but on actively managing pain, symptoms and spiritual and emotional needs so patients can have the best quality of life possible. Palliative care is a component of hospice care. As a palliative care pioneer, VITAS has developed effective protocols that are customized for each patient and family.

Lilacs & Greensleeves: CP; Office of the District Attorney, Los Angeles, CA.

Care4You is proud to feature the Office of the District Attorney Los Angeles as our Community Partner! We very much appreciate the work being done in this very important office for the safety of everyone in our community!!

OFFICE OF THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY, LOS ANGELES

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office is the largest local prosecutorial office in the United States.

Members of the District Attorney’s staff strive to vigorously, effectively and fairly prosecute all those who break laws in Los Angeles County and see that those convicted are appropriately punished.

The office’s top priority is the prosecution of violent and dangerous criminals – murderers, rapists, gang members, child abusers and robbers among them.

Nearly 1,000 attorneys, known as deputy district attorneys, prosecute more than 71,000 serious crimes called felonies throughout Los Angeles County each year.

They also prosecute roughly 112,000 less serious crimes known as misdemeanors in unincorporated areas and in 78 of the county’s 88 cities. Ten cities, including Los Angeles, Long Beach, Santa Monica and Pasadena, have city prosecutors who handle misdemeanor crimes and municipal code violations that occur within their jurisdictions.

Deputy district attorneys are prosecutors who represent the people of the State of California. They review investigations conducted by law enforcement agencies and decide whether there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges. They also decide what charge or charges, if any, are appropriate based on the evidence presented. Prosecutors handle court proceedings, including trials, that may follow the filing of criminal charges.

The District Attorney’s Office prosecutes cases in a large geographical area covering 4,083 square miles. Its jurisdiction stretches from the Antelope Valley to Long Beach and from Pomona to Malibu. Los Angeles County, with more than 10 million residents, is the nation’s most populous county – larger in population than 42 states.

Elder abuse is a rapidly growing criminal problem. As the baby boom generation grays and life expectancy increases, incidents of physical, emotional and financial abuse against elders are expected to grow unless steps are taken. Detection of abuse, neglect and fraud is critical. One of District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s top priorities is safeguarding seniors from financial crimes. Her mother was the victim of a telephone scam.

She initiated a public education campaign in partnership with the Rotary Club of Los Angeles, in which the District Attorney’s Office trains and equips Rotary Club volunteers to educate seniors on how to protect themselves against fraud.

As part of this campaign, these web pages include important information about the warning signs of possible criminal activity involving financial fraud. There also is important information on physical abuse, emotional abuse and neglect.

If you are concerned that a senior is being victimized, please contact your local law enforcement agency and/or the Los Angeles County Elder Abuse Hotline 1-877-4-R-SENIORS (1-877-477-3646). You also may report elder abuse online at this Los Angeles County Adult Protective Services website (https://fw4.harmonyis.net/LACSSLiveintake/).

A special concern for many seniors today is Fall Prevention. Taking one of the achievements above, ‘Improved Balance’ Lori and her trainers at Lori Michiel Fitness offer help to those in our community who wish to address their own concerns about falling.

Balance: Stay Vertical – Resist the Hidden Danger of Falling

Even in Your 30s and 40s, Specific Exercises Help Prevent a Big Danger of Aging

You know it when you feel it.

If you find yourself needing to sit down to take off your shoes, it might be time to start paying attention to your sense of balance.

People don’t usually think about balance until they fall or know someone they never thought would. There are signs that cannot be ignored such as holding onto hand rails to go up and down the stairs, wavering as you step into a pair of pants, missing the lip on a curb. These situations can be an early warning sign that your stability is starting to decline.

Once recognized, it is important not to dismiss the signs because loss of balance is usually treatable, but will often get worse if ignored. A formal assessment may not indicate balance issues, but does help predict the chances of becoming “one with the floor”.

Good news! Continue reading here>
