NN Dementia Friendly Training

Northampton Neighbors endorses the goal of Dementia Friendly Massachusetts (DFM) to increase the number of municipalities around the Commonwealth that commit to supporting those living with dementia, their families, and care partners.
 
All dementia-friendly communities share one thing: a commitment to make their neighborhood inclusive, welcoming those touched by dementia to continue to be active, contributing citizens.

Learning about dementia is key to reaching the shared goal of DFM. Please consider becoming a Dementia Friend, someone committed to being mindful and respectful toward people with dementia. By participating in a one-hour information session facilitated by Kathy Service, Nurse Practitioner and a Dementia Friends Champion, you will learn about common behaviors exhibited by people with dementia and basic, practical actions to communicate and support adults with memory impairment in our community.

Jon Feinman
Friday October 8, 2021
3-4PM on ZOOM

Jon will discuss the origins of Inner City Weightlifting, a program he developed in the Boston area that gives young people stigmatized by the judicial system hope, pride, a community to belong to, and a way out of gang violence. ICW challenges preconceived notions of criminality in communities that have been oppressed, blamed, and pathologized, and offers a creative and respectful alternative to mass incarceration.

Jon will discuss how and why he started ICW and how it evolved from a simple weight training program to a social justice organization that uses personal training to amplify voice and agency of people most often impacted by mass incarceration and systemic racism. What started as a gym, is now a community where people belong, are valued as equals, and listened to as the experts. Rather than doing something “for” someone, ICW partners with and alongside each person to promote personal success.

The Open Enrollment period of Medicare is upon us. Many of us have so many questions and concerns about our complex medical insurance system. Do I have enough coverage? Should I add dental? So many corporations are marketing supplements to Medicare that I’m wondering who should I listen to? For twenty-three years our guest speaker, Lorraine York-Edberg, has held the leadership role as Regional Director of the SHINE program, which stands for Serving the Health Insurance Needs of Everyone. In her capacity as Director of SHINE she has become one of the most knowledgeable people on all aspects of Medicare in the State of Massachusetts.

Lorraine will review the ins and outs of Medicare Parts A, B, C, and D Basics, Medicare Advantage Plan and Medigap options. In addition, she will review Public Benefit Programs and updates regarding the Medicare Savings Program which is also known as the Buy-In Program.
