This month we present the benefits of NIA, (Non Impact Aerobics) and welcome our speaker: Gail Mongiello who is a Certified Nia ( Non Impact Aerobics) Black Belt Instructor.  Since 2005,  Gail has been involved with Nia and in 2016 received the Nia Black Belt level of Mastery. As stated in an article from Neurology Now: "More and more research is finding that exercise may be particularly helpful for people who have neurologic conditions—with benefits seen in movement, balance, and even cognition. For example, in people with Parkinson's disease (PD), studies have found that mind-body practices such as tai chi create positive changes in mobility and stress levels. Mindfulness is central to the exercise practice known as Nia, which has become increasingly popular among people with PD. Debbie Rosas, co-creator of Nia, tells Neurology Now, “Walk into a Nia class for PD and you'll see people of many ages—some standing, some sitting, some with their caregivers—guided to move in their own way and in their own time." Our speaker this month specializes in Senior Health Fitness and loves to share The Joy of Movement! "Through Movement We Find Health" If you have Parkinson’s, or are caring for someone with this disease, be sure to attend this support group!

TUE. JUN 20 - FREE MEMORY SCREENINGS AND HEARING SCREENINGS PROVIDED BY SOUTHSHORE COALITION FOR MENTAL HEALTH AND AGING IN PARNTERSHIP WITH USF HEALTH BYRD ALZHEIMER'S INSTITUTE AND BEYOND HEARING
Beginning at 1:00 p.m. at United Methodist Church, 1210 Del Webb Blvd W, Sun City Center, FL.  Hearing loss is associated with poor cognitive performance and incident dementia and may contribute to cognitive decline. The study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may ameliorate cognitive decline. The purpose of the study carried out by Piers Dawes et al was to test whether the use of hearing aids was associated with better cognitive performance and if this relationship was mediated via social isolation and/or depression. The study found that hearing aid use was associated with better cognition, independent of social isolation and depression. This confirms the findings in a large French study. 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 Trials? Call the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer's Institute Mobile Clinical Trail Unit (813) 455-2512

TUE. JUN 27 - FREE MEMORY SCREENINGS AND HEARING SCREENINGS PROVIDED BY SOUTHSHORE COALITION FOR MENTAL HEALTH AND AGING IN PARNTERSHIP WITH USF HEALTH BYRD ALZHEIMER'S INSTITUTE AND BEYOND HEARING
Beginning at 1:00 p.m. at Kings Point in the 2020 building. Hearing loss is associated with poor cognitive performance and incident dementia and may contribute to cognitive decline. The study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may ameliorate cognitive decline. The purpose of the study carried out by Piers Dawes et al was to test whether the use of hearing aids was associated with better cognitive performance and if this relationship was mediated via social isolation and/or depression. The study found that hearing aid use was associated with better cognition, independent of social isolation and depression. This confirms the findings in a large French study. 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 Trials? Call the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer's Institute Mobile Clinical Trail Unit (813) 455-2512

You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack.

Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and caring citizens. Sometimes, the best first aid is you. Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community. Cost: $none What’s Included: course, materials, refreshments.

THU. JUL 25 - FREE MEMORY SCREENINGS AND HEARING SCREENINGS PROVIDED BY SOUTHSHORE COALITION FOR MENTAL HEALTH AND AGING IN PARNTERSHIP WITH USF HEALTH BYRD ALZHEIMER'S INSTITUTE AND BEYOND HEARING
Beginning at 1:00 p.m. at Kings Point in the 2020 building. Hearing loss is associated with poor cognitive performance and incident dementia and may contribute to cognitive decline. The study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may ameliorate cognitive decline. The purpose of the study carried out by Piers Dawes et al was to test whether the use of hearing aids was associated with better cognitive performance and if this relationship was mediated via social isolation and/or depression. The study found that hearing aid use was associated with better cognition, independent of social isolation and depression. This confirms the findings in a large French study. Make your appointment today to have your memory screened along with your hearing. By appointment only.

She is a national speaker on Caregiver Advocacy, talk show host and the author of the books Good Night and God Bless, a heartfelt story about the joy and challenges when caring for a parent. She specializes in Connecting Caregivers, resources and education for caregivers.  As an expert in Caregiver Advocacy, Linda has facilitated over 1400 support groups and workshops for caregivers. She shares lessons learned and coping tools with thousands of caregivers who attend her events or read her work. Her weekly blogs provide expert guidance on resources and best practices for caregivers all over the United States.  She also has a weekly radio show on Saturdays at noon called “Connecting Caregivers” on The Choice Radio Network. She is ever awed by the strength, resilience, and commitment of the caregivers she meets and seeks to remind them that they are not alone. Help is available and it is okay to accept that help.

Beginning at 1:00 p.m. at United Methodist Church, 1210 Del Webb Blvd W, Sun City Center, FL.  Hearing loss is associated with poor cognitive performance and incident dementia and may contribute to cognitive decline. The study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may ameliorate cognitive decline. The purpose of the study carried out by Piers Dawes et al was to test whether the use of hearing aids was associated with better cognitive performance and if this relationship was mediated via social isolation and/or depression. The study found that hearing aid use was associated with better cognition, independent of social isolation and depression. This confirms the findings in a large French study. Make your appointment today to have your memory screened along with your hearing. By appointment only.

TUE. OCT 10 - WARRIOR 2 WARRIOR - A VETERAN SUICIDE PREVENTION AND TREATMENT PRESENTATION
11:00 a.m. SCC Community Hall, 1910 S. Pebble Beach Blvd Sun City Center. Co-directors: Ms. Susan Ullman, the wife of an Army Green Beret who succumbed to suicide. Navy Seal CAPT Tom Chaby, USN (Ret). Former Commander of Seal Team 5. Catered by Banquet Masters. They operate with a nationwide network of volunteers overseen by only one paid staff member. Unlike most programs grown out of some bureaucracy or institution, W2W was designed and developed by Special Operations, their wives and families. It’s dif-ferent, it’s not run by bureaucrats, it’s run by warriors for warriors. The warrior ethos makes it nearly impossible for a teammate to ask for help. Fight through the injury, don’t admit weakness, keep it inside. Asking for help risks stigma, marginalization, loss of security clearances, or worse. The VA and DoD bureaucra-cies are ineffective and most importantly…..this is critical…..they have no mechanism to identify teammates early on the glide slope to trouble. What these Special Operations veterans and their families came up with is a personalized peer driven deinstitutionalized program that breaks down the barriers and stigma to getting emo-tional help. Instead of using mental health screenings, self referrals, or waiting for a crisis, Warrior 2 Warrior uses physical rehabilitation and physical therapy to gain ac-ceptance. These guys will readily go through the “Physical Therapy” door, they’re hesitant to go through the “Mental Health” door. It works because there is no stigma attached to physical rehabilitation. Reservations required. Point of contact for MOAA, MOWW, MFST Frank Kepley — 642-0801 dkepley@tampabay.rr.com. Others: contact your service organization to make a reservation. Lunch fee: $14.00 (payable at door). NON REFUNDABLE
