Did you know a vitamin deficiency can exhibit the same symptom as dementia? With annual memory screenings, you will be able to identify a decline in memory in order to address it and hopefully reverse it altogether which is the goal of the Coalition! Maintaining good brain health begins with a simple screening to establish a baseline score. This score is then utilized annually to determine if a loss is present to trigger a medical visit before valuable memory is lost forever. In addition, a recent study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may reduce the incidence of cognitive decline. Make your appointment today to have your memory screened along with your hearing. By appointment only. To schedule, call the Coalition at 813-419-4902 Interested in learning more about Clinical?

This presentation is being sponsored by the United Methodist Church Health Ministry who will be providing lunch. Education impacts everything we do!  It’s not every day that a challenging medical situation changes the focus of one’s career, but that’s exactly what happened, when James Epolito suffered spinal degeneration that led to debilitating sciatica pain. After seeking medical attention, an orthopedic surgeon/neurosurgeon/spine specialist recommended a spinal fusion. As James was only 32, a former tennis athlete and competitive runner, it was important for him to get a second opinion. This led him to learning more about diverse treatments and selecting regenerative medicine as the best solution. The result: An Integrative Medical Team corrected his issue naturally, without surgery, or even medication! And, James is running and competing again! Today, James is Director of Research and Development with Comprehensive Healthcare (CHC). He works with a team of physicians focused on changing people’s lives from around the world.

Our Lady’s Pantry - Can you help feed our neighbors? By sharing your time? “It requires a considerable effort to run Our Lady's Pantry," says Anita Bullaro, co-director of Our Lady’s Pantry, along with her husband Tom. "We could never do this work without our many helpers. Volunteers come when they can, and leave whenever they wish. No formal commitment is required. If you would like some more information about helping out, just stop in some Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday morning.” You can find us immediately south of Sun City Center Blvd., on U.S. Highway 301, in Wimauma. We are in back of the classroom building on the far right-hand corner of the Mission Center. We welcome donations of unexpired, non-perishable, nutritious food. Kindly bring your donations to the Pantry whenever it is open. "Every little bit helps," says Anita. We purchase most of our food for $.18 a pound at Feeding America, a regional food bank in Tampa Bay. Feeding America, however, supports more than 100 other food pantries in Central Florida. Sometimes there's not enough food to go around. On those occasions, we must purchase food at current market prices, considerably draining our resources. If you can help, kindly send a check to Our Lady’s Pantry — Food, c/o Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Migrant Mission, 16650 U.S. Highway South; Wimauma, Fl. 33598. Thank you for your help.

INFO FROM HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT REGARDING SCAMS!
Community Resource Deputy Jeffery Merry, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office: As you know, the residents of Sun City Center are continually victimized by scammers. These fraudsters prey on our residents just because of their age. Con artists seek out seniors for a variety of reasons, number one being their access to money in their retirement accounts. According to the Federal Trade Commission, Romance Scams accounted for more monetary losses than any other scam in 2018. And the losses are expected to be higher in 2019, with over triple the number of cases since 2016. For those victims over 70, the median loss was over $10,000.00. These scammers find their victims on social media sites, such as FaceBook, Instagram, Plenty of Fish, Meet me.com, just to name a few. They build trust and create the illusion of an actual relationship by chatting several times a day and crafting their stories and answers based on information obtained from the victim themselves. Then comes the request for money. The scammers often say they:
Work on an oil rig, Are in the military, Are a doctor with an international organization, They ask for money to: Pay for a plane ticket or other travel expenses. Pay for surgery or other medical expenses. Pay customs fees to retrieve something. Pay off gambling debts. Pay for a visa or other official travel documents. The scammers will ask for the money to be loaded onto gift cards, deposited into mysterious bank accounts, and purchase bitcoin. NEVER send money or gifts to someone you have not met in person. If you suspect a romance scam: Get a second opinion, Stop all payment methods, Stop all communication with the personuBlock all communication methods with the person, Report the person to the social media site, Report to the Federal Trade Commission. Report to Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

As promised, the SCCCA Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) has an update to share.  At this time, the committee is finalizing a survey, to be made available to SCCCA members by mid-October.  The purpose of the survey will be to gather feedback from the community regarding current facilities and future needs over the next 5-7 years, for new projects, and replacing outdated facilities.  The group is currently also exploring various options to enable members to provide input to this survey.  The committee has provided the initial draft of this survey to the CA Board/CA Management for their review and approval. The survey currently consists of approximately 30 questions.  In preparing for the planning process, the committee has also received recommendations for buildings and outdoor amenities from the CA Management staff, and an architectural firm regarding building specs, code requirements and pricing/potential cost. These ideas and informational demographics, along with survey input from the SCCCA members, will enable Phase three of the project, and result in SCC Board decisions and a Membership vote (by March 2020).  Please watch for an upcoming announcement when the survey is released.  Your feedback is an extremely important element of this process, and to the growth of our community.

Summary of NEW VA Program
The YMCA and the VA have partnered to make programs accessible to Veterans. Veterans referred by their health coach at the James a Haley Veterans Hospital are eligible to attend the Y for 12 weeks. The purpose is for them to attend the “program” on their referral sheet a minimum of two times per week. The program options include, but are not limited to: Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates, Y Weight, Water Aerobics. Though the agreement is for them to come twice per week only for their program, we welcome our Veterans to come to the Y unlimited times during their 12 weeks. They MUST scan in each visit. According to the VA rules, they are only eligible for additional referrals to the program if they come at least 19 times during their 12 weeks. We track this by their gate swipes. For more info, contact James A Haley VA at 813-558-3969 and ask for Whole Health Program or visit Look Inside Whole Health for Life.

WANT A $$$DISCOUNT WHEN MOVING TO INDEPENDENT OR ASSISTED LIVING?
You may be causing yourself to lose out on a potential incentive! Did you know website services such as "A Place for Mom", "Caring.com", "Senior Advisor" or services such as "Care Patrol" charge the facility what is equal to the first month’s rent? Searching online for reviews locks your information in as their lead once you enter your contact information. How likely do you think the facility will be to offer you a potential discount if they must pay for the website referral too? Not likely I'm afraid. The solution is simple! Just email or call each community you are considering and ask for a brochure to be mailed to you. NOW go online and search for reviews. You will still receive the valuable information you seek and possibly save on a future incentive toward your new retirement home. Questions? Call 813-892-2990

FASTER VA CLAIMS DECISIONS!
Since you last filed a VA disability claim, VA has improved the claim process by launching the Decision Ready Claims (DRC) Program.
When you file a DRC, you can get a decision on your claim in 30 days or less by working with an accredited Veterans Service Organization (VSO). Your VSO will help you gather and submit all relevant and required evidence so your claim is ready for VA to make a decision when you submit it.
You can now file a DRC for the following claim types:
•        Direct Service Connection Claims
•        Presumptive Service Connection Claims
•        Secondary Service Connection Claims
•        Increased Disability Claims
•        Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) Claims
•        Pre-Discharge Claims
Don’t miss out on this important opportunity to get a faster claim decision. Learn more about the DRC Program, including eligibility requirements, what medical evidence you need to submit, and how to find an accredited VSO at https://www.benefits.va.gov/compensation/drc.asp. 


If you are a military veteran, dependent, or survivor and want to know more about the wide range of benefits and programs that are available to you, Hillsborough County Consumer & Veterans Services can help and there is never a fee.

Caring for those who care – VA Caregiver Support Program values your commitment 
Caregivers play an important role in the health and well-being of Veterans, and caring for a wounded, ill, or injured Veteran is not easy work. Without family caregivers, many of these Veterans could not remain close to family and in their communities.
VA knows that family caregivers who care for Veterans in their own homes have been putting Veterans first since the founding of our nation. That’s why VA’s Caregiver Support Program provides training and education to enhance the caregiver’s role. The program focus is to improve the care-giver’s understanding of the impact their work has on the health and well-being of the Veteran they care for and their families as well as how their work affects them, too.
Caregivers who participate in VA’s Caregiver Support Program tell us that the program has helped them feel more confident in their role, that it has made them even more proficient in supporting the Veteran they care for in treatment and rehabilitation.
To learn more about the VA Caregiver Support Program, visit the Caregiver Website or call the Caregiver Support Line at 1-855-260-3274. You can also contact your local Caregiver Support Coordinator located at every VA medi-cal center across the United States.

SCC Lamplighters: There is a new group in town and I couldn’t be happier to wish them success in a project that epitomizes the spirit of the Sun City Center lifestyle. They call themselves the SCC Lamplighters and their goal is to make Sun City Center a safer and brighter place to live. If your street lamp at the foot of your driveway is burned out, they will come and replace it!  There is no charge for their labor; if the homeowner can pay for a replacement bulb, they will ask you to do so, but if you cannot pay for it, they will supply it at no cost. How wonderful it would be to look down a street in Sun City Center and see those quiet lights at every driveway.  Sound good?  Call 813-505-5927 and they will make an appointment to come to your home to replace the bulb.  


From John Bowker and worthy of sharing: There is a club in town I have never helped publicize.  Back some 5 years ago a group of people who love to fish found each other and organized a monthly schedule of meetings.  They often have guest speakers, fish fries twice a year (yes, their own fish!), along with trips out into the salt water and to the Skyway Fishing Pier and more. More information at:  castawayanglersFL@gmail.com   Their webpage is www.castawayanglersclubfl.org   or you can call Bob Preston at 813-404-5507.

But, as we age, many of us believe that there always is a tomorrow - that we will be able to care for ourselves and our beloved pets. We assume that neighbors, family or friends will step up to the plate to care for our pets should we be unable to do so. However, in the confusion that accompanies a person’s unexpected illness, accident or death, pets may be overlooked.  The best way to assure that your wishes regarding the future care of your pets are fulfilled is to draw up a formal written arrangement, such as a will, trust or bequest, that specifically states the individual care needed for each animal. Seek out the advice and help of a professional who can assist in the preparation of legal documents.  Cat Depot has made a commitment to assist responsible pet owners with a plan that will honor their cats for life. Bequests have been made to Cat Depot, and relinquished cats have been adopted into alternate loving environments. Pet owners can feel confident knowing that the felines they love will be taken care of well after they are gone.  For more information about the Lifetime Care Program, please call (941) 366-2404. 8/13/18
