Remember to return your Census 2010
questionnaire! You may be wondering:  Does it really matter if I mail my answers
back?
  The answer is: Yes, it matters!

According
to the Leadership Conference on Civil
and Human Rights, Census 2010 information will provide government representatives
with helpful information to:

  • Forecast the number of
    people entitled to receive Social Security and Medicare.
  • Determine where hospitals, health services centers and retirement homes
    need to be established or maintained.

H.E.L.P. Announces a New Fall-Prevention Class

“Safe and Independent at Home” focuses on preventing falls
in and around your home.  This new class will
tell you what steps to take to reduce your risks.
 
To have Helene Park, H.E.L.P.’s director of Community
Services, present the class to your group, please contact H.E.L.P. at 310-533-1996.

Making Final Arrangements


When family members or close friends die, those
experiencing the greatest sense of loss are often the ones who must make
funeral and burial arrangements. If decedents not only planned ahead, but also communicated
their final wishes to those who care, their tasks may be accomplished more
efficiently, and the resulting emotional burden lessened.

Elder Mediation

In
a perfect world, seniors would be free to make all their own decisions about
how best to cope with their current and future needs. But in the real world,
when seniors disagree with those who care the most for them about what is
right, what is fair, and what they
want, conflicts often arise.
 
Elder mediation can help. The process promotes communications among
concerned people who are unable to resolve their disagreements when conflicts
focus on care planning and financial security.
