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”.

Lilacs & Greensleeves: Community Partner; Philips Lifeline

Care4You is very pleased to have Philips Lifeline as our Community Partner! Thank you so very much Philips Lifeline, for your dedication to our community!

Philips Lifeline

How it began

In 1972, gerontologist Andrew Dibner, Ph.D., came up with the idea for an emergency response system in answer to the question: “What would an elderly person do if he or she were alone and needed help?” Two years later, Dibner’s concept became a reality when he and his wife, sociologist Susan Dibner, established Lifeline Systems, Inc.

Dedicated to finding solutions that support the independence of older adults, the Dibners began selling Lifeline Systems. To help even more people, in the late 1970s, they began implementing their call systems in hospitals and other healthcare centers in the U.S. and Canada. Healthcare institutions rented call buttons in a pendant or wrist band style to their patients and responded to their calls.

In 1983, Lifeline went public, staying focused on evolving its technology and services. Advancements included waterproof call buttons that could be worn in the shower — one of the most likely places for a fall. They also centralized the call center to provide world-class services for everyone using Lifeline.

A perfect partnership

In 2006, Philips Lifeline was born when Royal Philips Electronics acquired Lifeline, expanding Philips’ presence in the global home healthcare market. This development also allowed Lifeline to continue to grow its market-leading service through Philips’ worldwide presence, technology, and innovation capabilities.

Continuous innovation

Since then, Lifeline call buttons have become lighter and more comfortable to wear, and the system’s performance and usefulness have rapidly progressed. By leveraging the latest wireless technology, HomeSafe and GoSafe systems allow seniors to call for help from any place in their homes or practically anywhere they travel. Lifeline’s AutoAlert, available with both our at-home and on-the-go services, features advanced automatic fall detection technology, adding another layer of protection.

Philips Lifeline has served over 7.5 million people and is the #1 medical alert device. Our passionate commitment to the Dibners’ original quest to help seniors live safe, independent lives continues as we explore new medical alert technology, at-home health solutions and population health management, while also pushing forward important initiatives, like collaborating in the AgingWell Hub, an innovative research and development program launched in 2015.

CareSage: Frail and Elderly Program

Combining trusted Lifeline technology, HomeSafe with AutoAlert, and Philips’ HealthSuite, FEP and the CareSage predictive analytics engine provide a clear view of patients in the “white space” – that critical but cloudy area upon discharge when the risk of readmission is high. Through a three-tiered approach, healthcare professionals can monitor, qualify, and assess patient risk from collected data and analysis. Implementing this comprehensive program allows you to support your patients’ needs while improving patient satisfaction, the quality of outcomes, and potentially reduce the cost of care.

SAN DIMAS COMMUNITY HOSPITAL

It is our pleasure at Care4You, to have San Dimas Community Hospital as our Community Partner! Thank you to everyone at this fine hospital for your service to the community!!

sandimaslogo

“San Dimas Community Hospital (SDCH) is located on the east end of the San Gabriel Valley, one mile off the 210, 57, and 10 freeways, in the city of San Dimas, with a population of 35,000. San Dimas is a small, caring, cohesive community reaching from Puddingstone Lake in Bonelli Park on the south to the Foothills on the north. The hospital’s 13-acre campus consists of the 101-bed general acute care facility and two identical Medical Office Buildings. San Dimas Community Hospital draws the majority of its patients from its own town as well as the surrounding communities of Glendora, La Verne, Covina, West Covina, Azusa, Walnut, Diamond Bar, Pomona and Claremont. San Dimas Community Hospital is situated in a heavily penetrated managed care environment.
San Dimas Community Hospital opened its doors in 1971 as a physician-owned facility. At that time, the hospital was licensed for 99 beds. Patients and visitors often expressed their sense of the hospital’s “family” atmosphere. This was due not only to the efficient size of the facility, but more importantly because of the personalized care given by our physicians and employees, whether they are a nurse, housekeeper or a member of the dietary staff. In 2008, the hospital was sold to Prime Healthcare Services and operates as a 101-bed general acute care facility.”
