Are you or many people you know providing care for a senior citizen? If so, you’re not alone.

The VSP Foundation definition of “home healthcare assistant,” “personal care assistant,” or “elder care” is broad, including companionship or just being available to assist a senior.

But it’s undeniable that more and more time is spent on home health care, personal care and elder care as life expectancies and un-expectancies climb. In fact, an average of 20% of the workforce provides up to 20 hours of eldercare weekly. These caregivers are your support specialist and your care workers specialist.

Types of Home Health Care Assistant, Personal Care Assistant, and Elder Care, Case Manager are Specialist


Home Healthcare Assistant, Personal Care Assistant, Elder care, and Case Manager are paid specialist assistants to a family with physical, developmental or psychological needs.


These needs may be for making medical appointments, housing and financial decisions, dress up, taking medications reminders, watching or listening to activity all together for your loved one. A caregiver may also be entrusted with locating skilled services such as day care, nursing, assisted living, hospice and home health care, among other things.

In addition to planning and decision making, many specialist workers provide regular, even daily, care for your family member, either in their own homes or at other homes or facilities.

Singing and music benefit memory, emotional well-being in dementia

Singing and music benefit memory, emotional well-being in dementia

 Memory and mood in people with dementia improve when their caregivers encourage and help them take part in regular musical leisure pursuits such as singing or listening to music.

 As well as singing, listening to music appears to benefit mood in people 




Memory and mood in people with dementia improve when their caregivers encourage and help them take part in regular musical leisure pursuits such as singing or listening to music.


As well as singing, listening to music appears to benefit mood in people with mild dementia.
 
This is the conclusion of a new study led by the University of Helsinki, Finland, and published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.

The researchers suggest the study could help improve dementia care and better target the use of music in different stages of dementia.

Lead author Dr. Teppo Särkämö, whose specialisms span cognitive brain research, behavioral science and music research, adds:

"Our findings suggest that musical leisure activities could be easily applied and widely used in dementia care and rehabilitation."

The research involved 89 pairs of patients with mild to moderate dementia and their caregivers, who were randomly assigned to one of three groups.

In two of the groups, the pairs took part in 10 weeks of regular music coaching - one focusing on singing and the other on music listening. For the third group - the controls - the intervention involved standard care only.

Singing benefits early stages, music listening later stages

 

Assessments undertaken 9 months after the interventions had already shown that there were improvements in memory, executive function, orientation and mood in the groups that received musical coaching, compared with the standard care group.

Executive function is like the supervisor of brain processes that helps us focus attention, plan, remember and manage several tasks at the same time.

In the new study, the researchers examined the factors that might influence the mental and emotional effects of the musical activities in order to see who might benefit the most from them.

The team looked at how the severity and origin of the dementia, the age of the patient, their care situation and any previous engagement in musical hobbies might influence the effect of the musical activities.

They found that the most benefit for working memory, executive function and orientation came from singing - especially in patients with mild dementia and those under 80 years of age. And for patients with more advanced forms of dementia, it was music listening that led to the most cognitive benefits.

However, both singing and music listening alleviated depression more, especially in patients with mild, Alzheimer's-type dementia - compared with standard care.

Musical background of patient made no difference

 

The researchers were interested to note that the musical background of the patient - that is, whether or not they had hobbies like singing or playing a musical instrument - made no difference to the results.

They say their findings suggest it is important to take into account some of the clinical and personal circumstances and histories of patients with dementia when developing musical programs for their caregivers to use with them.

"Given the increasing global prevalence and burden of dementia and the limited resources in public health care for persons with dementia and their family caregivers," says Dr. Särkämö, "it is important to find alternative ways to maintain and stimulate cognitive, emotional and social well-being in this population." And he notes:
"Especially stimulating and engaging activities, such as singing, seem to be very promising for maintaining memory functioning in the early stages of dementia."
Meanwhile, Medical News Today recently learned about another study of older adults that found better memory is linked to physical activity. The researchers observed that older adults who took more steps each day performed better on memory tests than their more sedentary care.

Condensed Autobiography Van Stone - Born Courtfighter: Journey Through Unknown Courts

Condensed Autobiography Van Stone - Born Courtfighter: Journey Through Unknown Courts

Meet Newspaperman and Courtfighter Van Stone


Above: Image Supporting Van Stone's
Kinship.

Dear Readers,

I have been asked many, many times about how I came to be a newspaperman and courtfighter involved with the Philadelphia Front Page News, and forced to deal with the Media Delaware County Courthouse and the Philadelphia County Court. The first answer is that when I was a kid I love to read Bibles, the dictionary, and the Visual Encyclopedia of Science. Then I would write down what I read the best I could. Today, I still read these volumes. And I also love to read firefighter magazines. My first and second grade teacher, Mr. Herb Rogers, Jr., took us on a few field trips to the Philadelphia courts. Another reason is that my father could not read past second grade level literature, so I learned about writing early in my life. And I taught my dad how to read and write better when I was only a sixth grade school student.

I have written many books, articles, and opinion journals about the community, Bibles, legal matters, and Dragons. I like investigating, writing about famous people. I've written on many diverse subjects such as the Unknown Soldier, World History, Science, Myths, and Zombies. And I like to write about Historical Subjects: World Events, Cookery, Homes, Crafts, and Farming; Abraham and Sarah, Scrolls, Cleopatra, King Herod, Black Indians, John Adams, Samuel Adams, Frederick Douglas, Joseph Smith, Jr., Frederick Douglas, John Henry, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Adolf Hitler, NAACP, Jim Jones, Philadelphia, PA, and Harrisburg, PA. I like to write about Jimmy Carter and Ertha Kitt too. Some of my other opinion journals have been about Liza Minnelli, Tom Joyner, Steve Harvey, Denzel Washington, Jennifer Lopez, Will Smith, Jr., Judge Judith Sheindlin, Judge Greg Mathis, Jim Brown, LeBron James, and Michelle Obama. Also, I like to investigate stories about ordinary heroes like foster parents, firemen, (such as Philadelphia Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers), policemen, (such as Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Office Support, Sergent Jeff Cambell), clergy, superheroes, monsters, and gargoyles. Also, I like to write historical news about greenhouses, teepees, the sari, the saxophone, the gavel, silhouettes, smoke and fire, the yoke, pillory, cats, and sables.

I hope you liked reading about my exciting Black American Indian, Independent Journey through Media Delaware County Courthouse and Philadelphia County Court Building.

Your soldier friend,



Van Stone

Illegal Party Goers Reach $2 Million Settlement; Deborah Curcillo Continues Prosecution of Neighborhood Block Party Organizer and Community Activist


Special Report: Brutality Of Diane White, Associate, Managing Writer & Editor, Webmaster, Philadelphia Front Page News, VSP Foundation Harrisburg City Chapter President, DLighte House Ministry

Harrisburg -The insurance company for Dauphin County has agreed to settle a federal class-action lawsuit prompted by the arrests of about 50 people following a 2007 Labor Day party in Harrisburg. Parties goers were alleged to have been engaging in illegal drug use and underage drinking on property owned by the City of Harrisburg without a securing the required permit from the city. Police broke up the party on McCormick's Island after a man who was reported to be intoxicated drowned while trying to swim across the Susquehanna River. Most party-goers were released and mailed citations, but some out-of-state attendees ended up in the county prison. Three people who filed the lawsuit claimed prison employees strip-searched them, even though they were held on minor charges.

Meanwhile on that same Labor Day Weekend Diane White and the mostly women and children attending the block party in their neighborhood were cleaning up after a day of fun and games. The kids were helping and the music had been turned down. When out of nowhere a Harrisburg Police Officer began shouting obscenities in the middle of the street. According to several witnesses, White was about a block away from the Officer when he arrived and starting screaming at whoever was closest to him. These same witnesses say that White went over to show the Officer the permit and to find out what he wanted. The Officer led White away from the crowd and brutally assaulted her.

The Harrisburg News reported that according to the police report White spit in the Officer's face 2 times which White has consistently denied. White was charged with Assault on a Police Officer with Intent to Do Bodily Harm which carries a 2-5 year prison term. That charged was dropped at the Preliminary Hearing when the Police Officer changed his story on the stand.

White was arraigned at the Dauphin County Courthouse in Harrisburg back in January 24, 2008. She pleaded not guilty to all charges and requested a jury trial. The charges were now Resisting Arrest and Other Unlawful Acts. According to several eye witnesses, the Officer was standing in the middle of the street shouting profanity before he walked away with White and a few minutes later was verbally and physically assaulting her. White had organized the party. There was no record of a complaint being called in and there is no police report from the night of the incident. There are no other witnesses for the prosecution and there is no transcript from the preliminary hearing.

This past January Judge Klienfelter ruled against White's "Motion to Dismiss Under Rule 600", when ADA Debra Curcillo, currently running for Judge in Dauphin County responded to White's motion by citing an exception under the “Soldiers and Sailors Relief Act” notwithstanding the fact that the Officer was ordered to active duty 365 days after the alleged charges were filed against White. Curcillo, was granted the “Continuance” after being reprimanded by Judge Klienfelter for not providing explanations for the numerous Continuances previously requested by the DA's Office. Curcillo has been prosecuting the case for the past 20 months, the Officer is on active duty in Iraq allegedly not due back to work until September 14, 2009.

In the meantime, The Harrisburg Police Department still as not acknowledged a formal complaint filed by White after being instructed by the District Attorney's Office to do so on September 5, 2007 before their office would touch it. The Internal Affairs Officer who initiated the investigation of White's complaint was abruptly pulled off the case after a televised report to the city counsel on the status of all complaints filed against Harrisburg Police Officers by the citizens of Harrisburg in 2007. The same Internal Affairs Officer who gave that televised report had contacted several of White's witnesses and scheduled appointments for their sworn testimony, only to make herself unavailable when White's witnesses arrived for the appointments. According to reliable sources. the internal affairs officer has since been reassigned.


To no one's surprise the Harrisburg City Council has never held public hearings on the numerous complaints of police abuse nor have they ever followed up on a promise made to NAACP President, Stanley Lawson and the ACLU to engage in discussions with the community surrounding the set-up of a Community Review Board as promised by Councilwoman Patty Kim during her term as Chair of the Public Safety Committee. Gloria Martin-Roberts is now the chair of the Public Safety Committee and has also vowed to address many issues of police abuse and misconduct by surrounding the Harrisburg Police Department. We are still waiting for Mrs Robert to pursue the police abuse issues with as much diligence has she has shown in dealing with other inequities in the City of Harrisburg during her tenure on City Council.


White's trial date has been set for September 14, 2009 @ 8:00 am at the Dauphin County Courthouse in Harrisburg. Two years after the illegal arrest and vicious assault on her person and her privacy by an out of control, misguided police officer. Twenty months of attempted cover ups by the DA's Office and the Harrisburg Police Department all because of the irrational behavior of one misguided police officer who provided false testimony on police documents and under oath.

White will have to wait and see if Curcillo's only witness who may or may or may not return from Iraq with a whole new story another story to tell, if he shows up at all. According to the court documents the Officer left for Iraq on September 1, 2008. The assault occur on September 1, 2007. Curcillo the trial date is set for September 2009. Two years after the fact. Two years of justice denied.

Rangers are coming to Philly - The Guardian Angels they are not!


The Kick off of the Town Watch Ranger, VSP Foundation Summer Camp and supporters for Community Outreach Partnership, 2007 in West Philadelphia. The Rangers are looking for more volunteers to join them in the fight for more gun control in the state of Pennsylvania.

Rangers are coming to Philly - the Guardian Angels they are not! By Van Stone vspfoundation@yahoo.com (215) 747-8746

In just a little while longer, Philadelphia residents will get a chance to meet its city’s newest Heroes. The Town Watch Rangers. Unlike regular citywide town watch or those other guys that risk their own personal safety to promote public safety, the Guardian Angels, the men and women Rangers are coming to town to work for gun control with a vengeance. And it’s personal. The Town Watch Ranger, a Volunteer Patrol Service, formally of the 52nd Street community Town Watch, will provide public safety, street cleaning and safer schools. Services include connecting Street Arteries and any of the neighboring blocks and businesses that carry residents from the parks through the city.

In other words, just like when the criminals clearly avoids trouble where ever they see, the Cops rolling down the block, the Firefighter racing to stop destructive fires or the Park Ranger protecting national tourism spots, that same no good crook that ‘s willing and able to shoot up the city in broad daylight, not giving a hoot if kids are out, is about to move on quickly when ever and where ever they come face to face with a Town Watch Ranger. Many of the new Ranger’s are men and women that have dealt with some kind of sudden loss due to wrong doing by happy go lucky attitude folks that only seem to understand Stop the violence when faced against another that’s willing to get it stopped by any means necessary. Through the work of the Town Watch Ranger they enable our children to lead healthier and more independent lives, teach parents to manage their children’s issues with success and confidence, and provide our citizens with opportunities that will help them to grow, develop and become value added contributors to the success of a changed Philadelphia. But they are not just about serving the 52nd Street area of West Philadelphia. They are encouraging any neighborhood leadership to communicate with them often. If you have ideas that may improve your community’s services or experiences, like summer camp, park protection, or alike, from which you and I can benefit, do not hesitate to give them a call and share your thoughts. The Town Watch Ranger can be reached at (215) 570-9952, contacting Ranger, Raymond Ward as the Director that is interested in assisting you with your problem. The Ranger’s look forward to partnering with you to continue to make your Community Outreach Program the best community behavioral health organization this city can offer its citizens.

What else is up in West Philly? Friends of Malcolm X Memorial Park is doing its 8th annual West Philadelphia Jazz Heritage Series held at Malcolm X Memorial Park, 52nd and Pine Streets. And, Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell and Friends of Malcolm X Park host it. The Town Watch Ranger will provide public safety for all that attend. Concerts to start at 7 PM.

52nd St. Town Watch Ranger Re-advance Stop & Frisk


In the Second Row, Second from the right is Mr. Raymond Ward, Director of Philadelphia Town Watch Ranger; included are the Revised Town Watch Department supporting 52nd St. in West Philadelphia and a few of its volunteer members.

52nd St. Town Watch Ranger Re-advance Stop & Frisk
by Van Stone vspfoundation@yahoo.com (215) 747-8746

Today, because of history secular courts have set themselves up to be basically defenseless against organized religion and organized police no matter what they call themselves. Certain leaders of the church and police departments are aware that even the Supreme Court has no power to review church decisions to sell pamphlets or police decisions to confiscated sell guns. Observing the situation, this is why victims in the 1800's attempted to stop criminals from making the law into their own. Both civilian town watch and law enforcement partnered together to stop and frisk the criminals from abusing other’s rights.

Yes, white or Black, some even fought with their lives, if they had to, against the corrupt governmental authorities and won. This was the case during John Brown’s and Frederick Douglas time. Today in West Philadelphia area the 52nd Street Town Watch and local Police Clergy are helping the neighborhood to revise an advanced patrolling unit. This time it will be an actual department called the Town Watch Ranger. Just as the Park Ranger patrols the parks and help local police to fight crime the Town Watch Ranger will patrol both the parks and streets to reduce gun-violence and drugs. In the past, Brown, a white man, with fewer than fifty men, attacked the U.S. arsenal in Harpers Ferry launching an attack on Virginia slave-holders. Gun-violence then meant slavery. Brown and Douglas invented a sort of Stop and Frisk then that helped slow down crime. What about today?

Recently, many are concerned about Stop and Frisk. People who feel they don’t trust or understand Stop and Frisk are encouraged to work with local town watch and police. Mr. Raymond Ward has reorganized town watch that has a well experienced police radio patrol to help fight crime and see to it that Stop and Frisk is a success. Mr. Ward has long established one of the most sound town watch services in the West Philly neighborhoods. Ward, now in his seventies, developed bike, foot and radio town watch along 52nd street that was so authorized that shootings and muggings and nuisances were a minimum.

Mr. Ward reminds me of men like Douglas and Brown who worked together against mean spirited judges and police that stood by and did nothing to assist the Black or white victims of crime. Good unity is Power.

Mr. Ward realized early that certain judges and lawmen supported gun-murder and gun-mayhem as long as it didn’t happen in their own communities. Today the moral urgency to assist our neighbors is great. Upper Darby, Delaware County is just 5 minute drive away from Mr. Ward's 52nd Street neighborhood. Mr. Ward promises that the Town Watch Ranger is needed to assure the West Philly community that no Philadelphia police will sell guns to gun shops as the Upper Darby Police have done. The Town Watch Ranger is a group diversified amongst Americans that are Indian, Black and White. Mr. Ward wants to support Stop and Frisk if it can allow Philadelphia to confront police department heads that have confiscated guns and then sold them to gun shops. Should Cops that resell illegal guns should be handcuffed and then thrown into prison? The new Town Watch Ranger can replace the shortage of police in any town or city when cops go bad. We welcome any patrol that will stay alert.
