Relations with the Police. I have had wonderful assistance fthe police in my city. They have been nothing but professional, courteous, and helpful. But I cannot discount the experiences of others, so I have mixed feelings. Some years ago two professionals, a white woman and an African American man who were both employed by the Independent Living movement of people with disabilities were driving to lunch to talk about their work in differing cities. They were stopped by the police and questioned though they hadn't even broken traffic regulations. I would not want the job of a police officer for any amount of money! Police see constantly the worst of human behavior. And the things we humans are capable of are truly horrible. I know of another situation which happened a couple of years ago to a man with a mental disability. He is white, his lady partner was African American. This man is mouthy and can be quite rude. When ina situation where the police were talking to him they began calling the couple's child ...

So here's the scoop. I applied for waiver services, and the social worker was supposed to be helping me argued the point that though I presented a waiver need, but I didn't present a need to qualify for Cadi Services. I argued the point that I just got out of the hospital and a ILS worker would be helpful for me to check in with somebody who presented care and could monitor me to make sure I wasn't getting sicker. Then the social worker asked me would I allow an ILS(Independent Living Skills) worker in my home? What kind of question is that? I responded it's there job to help me and not harm me so yes I'd let them in my home to help me, unless they harm me and that's against the law so yes they can help me. Just because I have paranoid scizophrenia doesn't make me fearful or paranoid of help. To me this question is off base and discriminatory. This question that she asked me was I felt uncalled for. What do other people think?

The Saturday schedule will remain the same with 3:30 p.m. confessions and 5:00 p.m. Mass. Mass will be at 9:00 a.m. EVERY Sunday at St. Michael’s. The new schedule will begin on the weekend of July 20-21. Fr. Ed will be celebrating Mass at St. Michael’s three of the four weekends of the month. When he is at St. Michael’s, Fr. Ramaeker will celebrate one of St. Cecelia’s Masses. Fr. Ramaeker will alternate between the three masses offered at St. Cecelia. Communion Routes to the Homebound will continue to follow the first Mass on Sunday, i.e. after the 7:30 a.m. Mass.

My sister is 54 years old, and has lived very happily in her residential care home for the last 38 years. Nicky has cerebral palsy and relies entirely on her carers, many of whom have worked at this home for years. Last October, myself and other family members of residents received a letter from the charity Scope, which runs the home, informing us of ts proposed closure some time in 2015. Scope is a charity whose mission statement is that it exists "to make this country a better place for disabled people and their families". Yet it has decided to close 11 residential care homes under its control, including Hampton House in Northamptonshire, because it wants residents ...

Ok folks, time to let the cat out of the bag & tell everyone what God is up to in our lives. Jim & I have become painfully aware over the last number of months that we are no longer physically able to do the maintenance & upkeep that is necessary to keep a home in good working order & repair & eye pleasing so we decided to look in a different direction of life. We began praying & seeking God's direction for alternatives. Where He has led us is to adult independent living. Oh believe me that might sound a little "old person-ish" but it is far from it. First & foremost for me is I will NEVER EVER have to cook again.NEVER! Three meals a day are provided if we so choose to eat in the dining room but hey with a culinary arts institute trained chef who wouldn't want to, right? We get house keeping once a week, all utilities are included, transportation to appointments if we want to utilize it, trips & activities planned & organized to enjoy with other folks our own age, a bank & beauty shop in the buildi ...

Moved my daughter Whitney into her new place, yesterday. She and her 2 little girls have been living with us for nearly four years. It's been exciting and hectic, as Whit prepared to return to independent living, in her own home, with her children. Her mother and I are very proud of her. She has recovered quite nicely from a tough divorce and done a terrific job of rebuilding her life as a single parent. She's a strong and loving mom and just an all-around beautiful person. She'll be fine. And, Tori and I now begin to reclaim our house and our life, as old people with adult children. Sarah's family plans to move out to their new place, as soon as next week, and that will just leave our youngest son, Jack, who is starting high school in the fall. Just the 3 of us in the house, for the first time since soon after we bought it. Seems like we've had every room full for so long. It'll be nice to have it all to ourselves again. So why did I wake up, so sad, this morning?

So I have been thinking. I know, it's a miracle. Recently I have felt like I have no purpose. So, I was pondering the possibilities. I've decided that I am going to put my hustle to good use in a new game. Real Estate School. My Papa made money as a successful Broker and Investor. So I am going to check into it. I plan to use the money I make to start the Foundation for Victims of Traumatic Brain Injury. The main goal of the Foundation will be to educate Patients, their families, and the public about Traumatic Brain Injury and the stigma associated. Ensure that Victims dignity is held in the digest regard. So these unique people can integrate back into society and lead productive lives. It is my intention to ensure certain rights for Victims of Traumatic Brain Injury thru legislation. The most important if these is guaranteeing independent living without fear of discrimination or abuse. While also gauranteeing safety from all who choose to be ignorant.
Big day for my folks as they left their condo in Skokie and moved into independent living facility at Hawthorn Lakes in Vernon Hills. Great to have them close by !!
Week 3 : May 19, 2014 : This was the week of transitions my husband was taking a class in my hometown and we stayed with my mom. When we arrived my mom informed me that she was going to have to leave to Mexico to transition my aunt (her only sister) from independent living to Assisted Living. With FasterEFT I've learned that tapping in the moment is what helps the most. So there I was tapping about abandonment, tapping on growing old (me and family members), tapping on financially affording to care for my husband and I and other family members we want to help in their transitions while supporting our children in their own transitions to adulthood. So the cycle went...and then came the need to snack.interestingly enough Of look for something in the kitchen and be moved to drink water. This had been slowly happening since I started talking on food issues in my Level 2. FasterEFT has been instrumental in helping my cravings to eat and feed my emotions in order to silence them to ultimately subside to whisper ...
When people ask how my dad is doing, and I reply that he's now having dialysis, they all say, oh, how sorry they are -- but I correct them. "No, this is a really good thing!" Honest. Here's the intriguing tale. And also a bit on the whimsical life of an independent living residence.

On May 15 I posted some details on my older bro' schizo' Bob's case. His wife died last Jan. so I've been getting over there to Mt. Holly each week to try to help him. Cleared 50 lg. bags of trash, cleaned 18 lg. bags of laundry & organized, replaced broken toilet & tried to get him a health aide. It seemed to me that his schizo' symptoms were much alleviated from what they were years ago. Perhaps new neural pathways had developed in his brain to help things. At this point in time it seemed that all he really needed was four hours of Home Health aide help 3X per week. The doc' wrote a script' for Home Health services evaluation. The state then intervened unknowingly by canceling Bob's Medicaid ins. when it canceled his wife's policy that he was on. Several visits to welfare office & 3 case manager interviews later, Bob had a new food stamp card and also once the state completed investigating (now 3.5 months since the doc' wrote the script' for the eval.), Bob had his Medicaid coverage restored. I h ...
This Memorial Day, Durham veterans have a Durham County Extension Master Gardener to honor for his singular leadership and commitment to their housing needs. Alex B. Denson, a Durham County EMG, Naval veteran, retired US Magistrate Judge, and long-time advocate for the Triangle community’s homeless, is working in partnership with the nonprofit Community Alternatives for Supportive Abodes (CASA) to build The Denson Apartments for Veterans. The construction project will offer a total of 23 units of permanent, supportive housing for homeless Durham veterans with disabilities. “Any of us could suffer a tragedy, accident, illness or bad luck at any time that could cause us to lose our jobs, our possessions, and our homes causing us to become homeless. If that happens, we are the same people we always were, but we need a hand up to be able to return to independent living in safe, comfortable housing. As a veteran, I feel that I am in a special group of people who have served their country, often at great s ...

With the recent story of the life for orphanage graduates living under the streets of Bucharest. I thought you all might enjoy these two comparison stories about my daughter Daniela that I shared with friends and family this past week! Tina It's with great joy that we are announcing that Daniela Goldstone is graduating on June 7th from Shepherds College in Union Grove Wisconsin. The past 3 years having been very exciting and challenging for her and she has worked so hard to accomplish her goal of becoming an independent adult. She has overcome so many barriers and is now a poised and confident young woman. She will soon complete her program in horticulture and small animal care. She has been living in her own apartment on campus and in the fall will be moving into her own apartment (maybe with a really lovely friend from college!) in Walworth Wisconsin. She will be, hopefully, starting her own career. She will live in a wonderful supportive community called Inspiration Ministries where she will continue t ...

After getting back on days, I'm feeling better getting off nights. I'm still not working in my ideal niche, but it's getting ready to happen. I'm really getting ready to roll out my Wellness Coaching program. AND I've been approached by an educator in the hospital system where I work to be a vendor in an upcoming Wellness Fair. I'm also teaching classes in a local Independent Living community. I met with my biz coach for an intensive ALL day yesterday. I'm excited because my system is all coming together. Because of my own burn-out mid-life, my focus group is mid life professional women (no offence guys, Im not excluding men, just not focusing there) I've also met with a Human Design coach, and now understand why I reached the burnout state I did. I feel so alive when teaching and sharing my wellness passion. AND I'm excited because I just found out that Wellness Inventory (The program I use) may have a retreat center built in the mountains of NC. And I'll be able to have retreats there. (actually it's a ...

A final budget agreement has not yet been reached, there is still time to contact Legislators! PLEASE call Legislators today and ask them to increase Independent Living Funding! Independent Living Funding has decreased or remained flat for the last 10 years. Ask for an increase in funding from $12.361 million to $15 million. This is an increase of less than $2.7 million. In 2012/2013, ILCs served 85,541 people, a more than 7% increase in service utilization compared to five years ago. As New York continues to implement major systemic reforms to the state's Medicaid system that drastically change the way health care is delivered to New Yorkers with disabilities, this number will continue to increase. The State should pre-invest Medicaid savings in Independent Living Centers to support their efforts to transition and divert individuals with disabilities from costly institutions to fully integrated community based settings. Data from the New York State Education Department, ACCES-VR, show that the work of IL ...
NEWSPAPER ARTICLE ABOUT COMMUNITY HEALTH FAIR Palestine Resource Center for Independent Living (PRCIL) will host their tenth annual Community Health Fair on Friday, April 4th. The fair, which includes speakers, free screenings, and free restaurant samplings, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Evangelistic Temple, 3011 North Loop 256 in Palestine. “Each year we have tried to give emphasis to a particular health issue that is rampant in our county. In past years we have targeted diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and promoted health and wellness alternatives, as well. These issues will all continue to be a part of the fair, however, since it is our 10 year anniversary, we wanted to call attention to another disparity which is very high in Anderson and surrounding counties,” said PRCIL Executive Director, Sara Minton. “The focus for this year’s fair will be colon cancer. The facts that we now know to be true in our area are as follows: • of all Texas counties, Anderson has one of the highest ...
