Caregiver Support Group – You are invited!

Cedar Sinai Park, in collaboration with Jewish Family & Child Service and Sinai Family Home Services, invite you to a family support group:

“It Takes a Village: Supporting Families Caring for Elders”

Caring for a family member – whether in your home, their home or in another care setting – can be very stressful.  Even if you do not provide hands-on care, you may struggle with a lack of privacy, sleep deprivation, feelings of anger, guilt or depression, or an overwhelming sense of responsibility for the well-being of your loved one.

We are here to tell you that you are not alone.

Holding Hands with Elderly Patient“It Takes a Village” meets at 7:00 p.m. on the second Monday of each month at Rose Schnitzer Manor.  The group is facilitated by David Molko, Senior Outreach Clinician for Jewish Family & Child Service and Sarah Wheeler, Social Services Director at Robison Jewish Health Center.  Participants have the opportunity to share their concerns, explore solutions to problems, and suggest topics for future meetings.

Elegant Arches, Soaring Spans: The Bridges of C. B. McCullough

Tuesday, May 26, 6:45pm – 8:00pm

Elegant Arches, Soaring Spans: The Bridges of C. B. McCullough

With Robert W. Hadlow, PhD, Oregon Department of TransportationBridge

Robert W. Hadlow is the authority on highway bridge-building in Oregon.  In his illustrated presentation, Hadlow will look at the structures that Conde B. McCullough designed and built across the state between the two world wars, focusing on their engineering and architecture.

For over 25 years, Robert W. Hadlow has researched and written on historic road resources throughout the United States.  He is the senior historian with the Oregon Department of Transportation, where he completes Section 106 and Section 4(f) compliance work.  In 2000, Hadlow prepared a National Historic Landmark nomination for the Columbia River Highway Historic District.  In 2005, he listed eleven of McCullough’s Oregon Coast Highway bridges in the National Register of Historic Places.  At present, he is preparing NHL nominations on five of those bridges.

Hadlow has been on the governor-appointed Oregon State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation since 2008 and is now its vice-chair.  When he is not pursuing transportation history, you might see him out on the streets and roads around Portland in his 1949 Buick, which he has owned for over 35 years.

History of Portland Transportation

With Scott Cohen, Portland Bureau of Transportation

 

 

 

This presentation will focus on the connection between the Portland region’s growth and the transportation projects that shaped its development. This presentation was originally developed by former head traffic engineer of the City of Portland, Steve Dotterer. Through years of planning and public outreach, Mr. Dotterer learned the value of understanding how Portland developed and the role transportation played. Dotterer’s research includes material from the Oregon Historical Society and the City of Portland archives.

Scott Cohen is a transportation planner at the Portland Bureau of Transportation who earned his Master’s degree in American History at Portland State University in 2005.  Scott currently works in PBOT’s Active Transportation division that plans, builds, and educates about the city’s bicycle, pedestrian, and transit networks.

Elder Investment Fraud and Financial Abuse

Elder Investment Fraud and Financial Abuse

Thursday, April 2 (Tonight!)fraud

6:45pm – 8:00pm

Diana Childs, State of Oregon Elder Investment Fraud and Financial Abuse

It’s unfortunate but true – seniors are the target of many financial scams.

And new medical research shows that more than a third of Americans over the age of 71 have mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or Alzheimer’s disease that make them particularly susceptible to investment swindles and other financial abuse. Oregon has joined more than 23 other state securities regulators in a major national Elder Investment Fraud and Financial Exploitation Prevention program. The unprecedented effort will educate thousands of U.S. medical professionals about how to spot older Americans who may be particularly vulnerable to investment fraud abuse and then to refer these at-risk patients to state securities regulators and adult services professionals. In Oregon, a clinician or caregiver who clinician suspects some type of financial exploitation would refer their concerns to the Oregon Division of Finance and Corporate Securities or to Oregon’s Adult and Protective Services Division.  Diane Childs, Financial Information Outreach Coordinator for the State of Oregon, will speak about investment swindles and other financial abuse.

To RSVP, please call 503.535.4004 or email deborah@cedarsinaipark.org.
