Sheridan Elder Research Centre (SERC)
Sheridan College Study:
"The Use of Natural Health Products in the Elderly"
by Dr. Dalya Abdulla

Go to Online Survey.

You are invited to participate in a study entitled “The Use of Natural Health Products in the Elderly” conducted by Dr. Dalya Abdulla. Dr. Abdulla is from the Faculty of Applied Health and Community Studies at the Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning in Oakville, Ontario, and is collaborating with the Sheridan Elder Research Center (SERC) to conduct this study. You may contact Dr. Abdulla by calling (905) 459-7533 ext. 5298. Study ends August 31, 2012.

The purpose of this research project is to determine the pattern of natural health product usage among older Canadian adults. It is important to understand natural health product usage patterns among older adults to aid health care professionals in personalizing healthcare and preventing unintentional medication errors.

If you are a resident of Ontario, Canada over the age of 55, we invite you to complete this questionnaire. This survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. All potentially identifying information will remain completely confidential, and will be accessed only by Dr. Abdulla or by a member of the research team at SERC. You may choose to stop completion of the questionnaire at any time.

It is anticipated that the results of this study will be shared either as a peer-reviewed publication or presented in a conference. In addition, reports will be provided to participants through the older adult community centers that participated in the research.

To help you complete this survey, you will need to know what a Natural Health Product is. A Natural Health Product (abbreviated as NHP) is any sort of dietary supplement. It can include products such as vitamins, herbs, mineral supplements, botanicals, essential fatty acids, probiotics, homeopathic preparations, or product blends.

Some examples of Natural Health Products (NHPs) include: multivitamins, calcium supplements, St. John’s Wort, Echinacea, Omega 3 Oils, Acidophilus, etc.

Ask an Expert Series for Older Adults
Free Workshop

First Wednesday of Every Month

April Topic: Falls Prevention

Ask an Expert Google image from http://www.myvoiceexercises.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Ask-an-expert.jpg

Wednesday, April 4, 2012 - 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

FREE Admission. FREE Parking.

Description:

The risk of a fall dramatically increases at 40 years of age. A fall is not only painful but can cause a long recovery process and potentially a loss of independence.

People fall because their vision has changed or they are not wearing their glasses, medication doses are not followed, inactivity and poor balance, not wearing the correct footwear for the situation and the home environment is unsafe.

The panel of “Experts” will give you tips on how to prevent a fall. You will also be given a booklet of exercises you can do at home to increase your strength and balance. You can help prevent a fall by taking action and learning more.

Each panel expert will present for 10 minutes, then 1 hour is allotted to give you a chance to “Ask an Expert”.

This month’s Panel of Experts:

The Mississauga Halton Falls Prevention Coordinator will tell you how falls happen, how to prevent them, and will also show you 10 exercises you can do at home to improve your balance and strength. Monica will also tell you what to do if you do fall.

We Care Home Health will tell you how to make your home safe and will give you an Independent Living Guide so you can assess your home.

MediChair will show you simple equipment that is available to make life easier.

Snacks will be provided by MediChair.

Also, thank you to Elham Khodeir for providing a foot care clinic.

Royal Canadian Institute (RCI) Presents:
Free Science Lecture

Dr. H. Douglas Goff image from http://www.yorku.ca/rci/Site/Winter_12.html
Dr. H. Douglas Goff

Wednesday, 4 April, 2012 - 7:30 p.m.

NOTE: This RCI lecture is on Wednesday instead of the usual Thursday.

Finding Science in Ice Cream

By H. Douglas Goff, Ph.D.
Department of Food Science, University of Guelph

"The delicious treat enjoyed by countless people as dessert and for entertaining is also a very complicated lesson in several scientific principles. This lecture will describe the manufacture of ice cream and then delve into its structure, which will involve a description of scientific principles such as colloidal stability and freezing point depression to explain how manufacturers make the optimum-quality product. Keeping that quality through the storage and distribution chain to deliver it to the consumer is an equally large challenge involving further applications of scientific principles to understand sugar glasses and ice recrystallization, all of which will be demonstrated in detail." ~ Info from The Royal Canadian Institute.

This FREE public one-hour lecture will be followed by a question period during which you can ask the scientist directly any questions that you may have.

The Royal Canadian Institute (RCI) for the Advancement of Science has provided these free public lectures since 1849. Webcasts are available at RCI Webcasts.

Gil is a successful Hollywood writer but is struggling on his first novel. He falls in love with the city and thinks they should move there after they get married, but Inez does not share his romantic notions of the city or the idea that the 1920s was the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight and discovers what could be the ultimate source of inspiration for writing. Gil's daily walks at midnight in Paris could take him closer to the heart of the city but further from the woman he's about to marry." ~ Written by napierslogs.

Soon after, when she announces she's pregnant, one of Andrew's many close friends, Kurt Kuenne, begins this film, a gift to the child. Friends, relatives, and colleagues say warm and loving things about Andrew, home movies confirm his exuberance. Andrew's parents, Kathleen and David, move to Labrador where the ex-girlfriend has gone. They await an arrest and trial of the murderer. They negotiate with the ex-girlfriend to visit their grandchild, Zachary, and they seek custody. Is there any justice; is Zachery a sweet and innocent consolation for the loss of their son?" ~ Written by jhailey@hotmail.com.

Divorced, he eschews human contact except for his friends and students, criticizing everyone he meets for not matching him intellectually . . ."

"Attempting to impress his ideologies on religion, relationships, and the randomness (and worthlessness) of existence, lifelong New York resident Boris Yellnikoff rants to anyone who will listen, including the audience. But when he begrudgingly allows naive Mississippi runaway Melodie St. Ann Celestine to live in his apartment, his reclusive rages give way to an unlikely friendship and Boris begins to mold the impressionable young girl's worldly views to match his own. When it comes to love, "whatever works" is his motto, but his already perplexed life complicates itself further when Melodie's parents eventually track her down." ~ Written by The Massie Twins.

Canadian Community Arts Initiative (CCAI)

RELOAD
Video Project for Seniors!

Video Google image from http://firm-marketing.com/files/2010/07/web-video-icon.jpg

May 2012

Canadian Community Arts Initiative (CCAI) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting a more effective role of art and culture in Canadian community.

Following info obtained from StarBuzz Weekly, Toronto:
Project: “RELOAD” Documentary Films by Seniors - Registration Now Open.

Mississauga is the sixth largest city in Canada and home to over 700,000 people (as of 2011 census, Mississauga's population was 713,443. StarBuzz Weekly's population figure: over 850,000). See also: Mississauga’s growth forecast.

Mississauga is a part of the Regional Municipality of Peel which includes Brampton (as of 2011 census, Brampton's population was 523,911) and Caledon (as of 2011 census, Caledon's population was 59,460). Almost 50% of this population were born outside of Canada and are first generation immigrants.

The settlement process of a new immigrant generally lasts between three to five years. Seniors who have left their comfort zone of friends, culture and traditions, find it most difficult to accommodate themselves in a completely new land with different culture and traditions. Having to learn and/or speak a new language also proves challenging, especially for seniors.

These seniors suffer emotional stress at a time when they are most vulnerable. The emotional stress and confusion of their status in the society give rise to a feeling of isolation and helplessness and that is where a project such as this one offers a helping hand.

Thanks to a New Horizons for Seniors grant from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), CCAI will coach 15 seniors (especially new immigrants with 3-5 years tenure in Canada) in the art and science of documentary film making in sessions and workshops delivered by professional Canadian film makers, provide them with flipcams (mini digital video cameras) and have them record their impression of Canadian experience.

These films will then be reviewed by a jury of professional artists who will select 10 films to be edited and screened at the 7th annual Mosaic - The South Asian Heritage Festival of Mississauga in July 2012 where thousands are expected to view them. The flms will later be aired on local and cable television as well.

The project will create social inclusion opportunities for seniors, teach them a new skill and offer them a sense of accomplishment as they contribute to social and community life of Canada and are recognized for doing so.

This is an equal opportunity project, all seniors including women are encouraged to participate.

Please note the last day to apply is May 30, 2012. This is a first come first served opportunity. The application process may be closed at any time as soon as the required number of applications are received.

Seniors interested in participating in this project, please contact:

Phone: 416-388-9596.

Asma Arshad Mahmood was born in Lahore, Pakistan. Asma is a visual artist and art activist. With an MFA from York University, Asma is an arts and cultural market expert. She has previously served on the boards of SAVAC, South Asian Visual Arts Centre, and was Chair for Art City, a non-profit art education institute for youths in St. James Town, Toronto, and Member of Community Editorial Board of Toronto Star.

Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Rated: PG, 79 min. - Comedy | Fantasy.

A man with the ability to change his appearance to adapt to his surroundings becomes an international celebrity and every psychoanalyst's dream case.

Zelig from Wikipedia. "Zelig is a 1983 American film written and directed by Woody Allen, and starring Allen and Mia Farrow. Allen plays Leonard Zelig, a nondescript enigma who, out of his desire to fit in and be liked, takes on the characteristics of strong personalities around him. The film, presented as a documentary, recounts Zelig's intense period of celebrity in the 1920s and includes analysis from present day intellectuals . . ."

Zelig - Plot Summary from IMDb. "Fictional documentary about the life of human chameleon Leonard Zelig, a man who becomes a celebrity in the 1920s due to his ability to look and act like whoever is around him. Clever editing places Zelig in real newsreel footage of Woodrow Wilson, Babe Ruth, and others." ~ Written by Scott Renshaw.

"Climate Change: Fact or Fiction?"

The debate as to the existence or not of changes in our climate attributed to human activity is becoming increasingly heated. This talk will present the basic science that determines the surface temperature of our (and other) planets and will also describe some of the changes that have been observed in our climate and the impacts that this will have both locally in the GTA region and globally.

"Active Lifestyles for Successful Aging"

Longevity has increased and the baby boom generation has started to retire. Researchers agree that maintaining an active lifestyle is a key to successful aging. Evidence has emerged indicating the benefits of physical exercise, mental exercise, and social interaction. At UTM we are learning more about how age-related sensory changes affect successful aging and how active communication may contribute to better health outcomes for older adults.

How does psychological stress ‘get under your skin’ and make you sick? Research shows that experiencing severe stress and adversity can increase the risk of chronic disease. Here at UTM we examine some mechanisms by which this happens, primarily cardiovascular and neuroendocrine regulation. We are also researching ways to refine psychological treatments to improve physical health.

Rated: R, 124 min. (Library DVD rating: PG - Length: 99 min.) - Crime | Drama | Romance.

A former tennis pro is torn by his desire for two very different women.

Match Point from Wikipedia. "Match Point is a 2005 dramatic thriller film written and directed by Woody Allen which stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Scarlett Johansson, Emily Mortimer, Matthew Goode, Brian Cox and Penelope Wilton. Rhys Meyers' character marries into a wealthy family, but his social position is threatened by an affair and the subsequent pregnancy of his brother-in-law's ex-girlfriend, played by Johansson. The film treats themes of morality, greed, and the roles of lust, money, and luck in life . . ."

Match Point - Plot Summary from IMDb. "Chris Wilton is a former tennis pro, looking to find work as an instructor. He meets Tom Hewett, a well-off pretty boy. Tom's sister Chloe falls in love with Chris but Chris has his eyes on Tom's fiancée, the luscious Nola. Both Chris and Nola know it's wrong but what could be more right than love? Chris tries to juggle both women but at some point, he must choose between them." ~ Written by Anonymous.

Match Point (2005) - Film Review from Decent Films Guide: "The first shot in Woody Allen's Match Point is meant to serve as a metaphorical ... Chris meets someone who unexpectedly brings out the full unmoderated force of his powerful serve and desires: Nola Rice (Scarlett Johannson), a competitive American beauty whom Chris meets over a Ping-Pong table. After taking the most direct route to ending their very short first volley, Chris proceeds with equal directness to put some other moves on Nola."

~ Quote from former First Lady of the United States:
Rosalynn Carter

Carepartner Workshop Series

These workshops are an opportunity to focus on your needs as a carepartner and how to promote your own health and wellbeing.

Discussion topics to include:

● Sharing your experience and feelings
● Problem solving with others
● Learning to reach out and accept help
● Navigating Community Resources / Services - Making the "system" work for you
● Stress Busters / Therapeutic approaches to self care
● Coping skills and strategies for coping with the unpredictability of Parkinson's Disease
● Coping with changes in behaviors
● Other Topics.

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's is a neurodegenerative disease, which is neither fatal nor contagious. It results in many symptoms, which include tremor, regidity, slowness and impaired balance. This happens because of a lack of dopamine in the brain.

Dopamine is a chemical that helps control movement, by carrying signals between nerves of the brain. When cells that normally produce dopamine die, the symptoms of Parkinson's appear.

Carepartners

As the carepartner of a person with Parkinson's, we would like to offer you an opportunity to share your experiences with other carepartners, to learn more about strategies to reduce caregiver strain, to receive support from others, and develop strategies for promoting your own health and wellbeing.

You are the "head, heart and hands" of most ongoing care within your family and within our society. Your role is extremely important to the life and wellbeing of your family member with significant health concerns.

Contact Karen Dowell

If you are interested in attending this workshop for partners of people with Parkinson's, please call Karen Dowell: 1-800-565-3000 ext. 3376

Snap North Mississauga: Carassauga Festival of Cultures
Event by Bob Askin, Code: ped3g8

Carassauga Celebrates its 27th Anniversary.

Multicultural Dance of Nations.

On the weekend of May 25, 26 and 27, 2012, Carassauga: Mississauga’s Festival of Cultures will offer visitors the opportunity to visit 60 countries, view breathtaking entertainment, taste exotic cuisine and enjoy exhilarating experiences, all without leaving the City.

The Carassauga Festival has grown from its humble roots in 1985 to become the largest multicultural Festival in Ontario and the second largest multicultural Festival in Canada. It was originally incorporated to promote public awareness and appreciation of multiple cultures, which it has been doing in an enjoyable, rewarding, educational and exciting manner, consistently for 26 years. Last year in the 26th consecutive year of operation, Carassauga attracted 260,272 visitors to the Festival.

The Festival provides an authentic cultural experience delivered by many ethnic groups and organizations working together to present their specific culture, food and entertainment. It is an “ever changing”, “yet familiar” experience. As Irene Violette, a loyal Festival visitor for more than 13 years, said, “Carassauga is just a fun time. You get to visit Around the World for $10. You get to learn about different cultures, meet nice people and try different foods. Every year, each Pavilion has something different for visitors to appreciate about their culture.”

Many Pavilions return year after year. The Pavilions of Portugal, Philippines, India, Croatia and Greece are five of the original participants that still participate today. This year the Festival welcomes three exciting new Pavilions: Serbia, Egypt and Caribbean.

Nothing is more Canadian than people of many cultures sharing their heritage and traditions with great pride. We hope your time at Carassauga leaves you with a broader understanding of the people around you, along with a deeper appreciation of this diverse City and great country of ours.

Rated: R, 98 min. - Comedy | Crime

An idealistic playwright will do anything to get his first play off the ground, but must ultimately decide whether art or life is more important.

Bullets Over Broadway from Wikipedia. "Bullets Over Broadway is a 1994 crime-comedy film written by Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath and directed by Woody Allen. It stars an ensemble cast including John Cusack, Dianne Wiest, Chazz Palminteri, and Jennifer Tilly."

Bullets Over Broadway - Plot Summary from IMDb. "Set in 1920's New York City, this movie tells the story of idealistic young playwright David Shayne. Producer Julian Marx finally finds funding for the project from gangster Nick Valenti. The catch is that Nick's girl friend Olive Neal gets the part of a psychiatrist, and Olive is a bimbo who could never pass for a psychiatrist as well as being a dreadful actress. Agreeing to this first compromise is the first step to Broadway's complete seduction of David, who neglects longtime girl friend Ellen ..." ~ Written by Reid Gagle.

Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

Retirement can be an incredible time of your life --- but it can also last 20 or more years. So it’s important to consider if your retirement income will last as long as your retirement. When it comes to generating retirement income, two options to explore are segregated funds and annuities.

Come to this free seminar to learn about Guaranteed Income for Your Retirement:

● Retirement uncertainties that could impact your long-term strategy

● Segregated funds, annuities and their features

● How segregated funds and annuities can supplement your retirement income

When it comes to your retirement savings, it’s best to have as much information as possible so you can make the right financial decisions for your situation.

Refreshments and light snacks will be served.

Call Barbara Thomas at 905-812-1380 by June 22, 2012 to reserve your seat for this event.

Retirement Living Google image from http://retirementlivingottawa.com/img/header-img.jpg

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Health issues, financial circumstances or loss of a spouse are often the significant life changes that cause seniors to have to 'rightsize'. This is a big change having to relocate from a place that has been called 'home' and provided comfort to them for years. This transition can be an easy process with a little pre-planning and organizing to help them gain control of the situation.

Join Chartwell Classic Robert Speck for this free educational seminar. Find out more about the joy of retirement living; advice on financial and estate planning; helpful suggestions about selling your home from an accredited senior agent; and excellent support from the professionals of Downsizing Divas!

Refreshments will be served, and door prizes too!

Space is limited - so please RSVP to Vanessa or Lynn at 905-501-9922 before June 26, 2012 for a chance to win a $100 Gift Card to Sherway Gardens Shopping Centre!

His hero persona is the tough guy played by Humphrey Bogart in many of his movies and the apparition of Bogart begins showing up to give him advice.
