The Last Ocean

Activity #384403.00 Date: Tuesday, August 6 New Zealand, Feature Documentary, 2012, 87 min. There is one last, absolutely wild, wonder of the world, the Ross Sea, Antarctica. This vast, frozen landscape is filled with life – whales, seals, and penguins carving out a place on the very edge of existence. It is one of the last places on earth where the delicate balance of nature still prevails untouched by humans. But an international fishing fleet has recently found its way to the Ross Sea and is targeting Antarctic toothfish, sold as Chilean Seabass in up-market restaurants around the world. The catch is so lucrative it is known as white gold. Ecologist David Ainley knows that unless fishing is stopped, the natural balance of the Ross Sea will be lost forever. He rallies his fellow scientists, and begins a campaign taking on commercial fishermen and governments in a race to protect Earth’s last untouched ocean from our civilization’s insatiable appetite for irreplaceable creatures of the sea.

Medicare Basics Classes When is it time to engage a conservator or guardian? And what does that mean anyway?
Activity #388001.00 Date: Wednesday, June 12 Time: 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. Cost: Free, but please register in advance Elder Law and Estate attorney Dan Kapsak will present a class on the ins and outs of conservatorships and guardianships—of protecting the needs of persons under disability—in Colorado.  You will learn: 1. Such “protective proceedings” are not “one size fits all” but are carefully crafted to meet the specific needs of your loved one; 2. Having a guardian or conservator does not mean complete loss of dignity or voice; 3. Having the court’s oversight is important where family dynamics are turning into family dynamite; 4. Court supervision is only one alternative to protecting the needs of persons under disability. Dan has maintained his own law practice since 1987, as principal in The Kapsak Law Firm, LLC.  He is an active member of the Colorado and Boulder Bar Associations.  He is a member of The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and serves on the Boulder County Adult Protection Review Team.  He has served on numerous Ethics Committee throughout Boulder County and on the boards of many charitable organizations.

Activity #388006.00 Date: Thursday, August 15 Time: 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Cost: Free, but please register in advance HELP! I’m falling and I can’t get up. HELP! My husband just wandered off and I don’t know where he went. HELP! I want to stay in my home, but I know I need help. Aging in place is so important to all of us. Join us in a conversation to explore more options that help us stay at home. There are a number of agencies that use modern technology to assist caregivers who may not always be able to be with their loved one. Perhaps your loved one is able to continue to live at home because you have a system that monitors their wellbeing and reassures you they are safe. Perhaps you live alone and want the comfort of knowing that if you fall someone will come to help you. When you can’t always supervise your loved one, there is a system that can locate them if they wander away from home. We are fortunate to have Colorado Life Trak through Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, Direct Link, and Ever Present Systems represent these options. This conversation will be facilitated by Ruth Waukau of Senior Services.

Trips
Trip & Registration Information
Trips are scheduled on various modes of transit: mini buses, school buses and coach buses. The style of bus is dependent upon cost, size of group, time and distance traveled, as well as availability of buses. We always try to be cost efficient and comfort oriented. Departure times are definite. We do not wait for participants past the designated departure time either from the Senior Center or returning to the Senior Center. Return times are approximate. Please do not schedule appointments close to the return times; we never know when delays may occur. Bus seat assignments are made at the time of check-in. Participants draw a seat number for themselves and one other person (shared seating). These assigned seats are used both going to and from the trip destination. For extended trips, you will draw new seats each day. Cancellations must be received by the dates printed in The GO if a full credit or refund is to be given. After that date, a partial credit or refund may be issued only if the spot is resold. Cancellations must be processed through the Senior Center. When possible, the staff will attempt to resell your spot to the first person on the waiting list, or if it is last minute and the Senior Center is closed, you may give your ticket to a person of your choice. Please call 303-651-8442, if you do so.

Saturday, May 18, 10:00 – noon Lottery style.

Trip Registration

If you are unable to attend the registration kickoff on Saturday, you may register at the front desk or over the phone or online at www. ci.longmont.co.us/sen_ctr beginning May 20.

LOTTERY INFORMATION

In fairness for all and to eliminate the need to arrive early, we will use a lottery format for the first day of trip registration. Numbers will be distributed to participants at 10:00 a.m. Corresponding numbers will then be placed in a tumbler and drawn randomly. When your number is called, you will have the opportunity to register for trips. Participants must be present when their number is called to keep things running smoothly. If you arrive after 10:00 a.m., your number will be added to the tumbler after you are seated. You may register for yourself and one other senior. A separate Activity Registration Form is required for each person.

TRIP PICK-UP AND RETURN LOCATION Longmont Senior Center 910 Longs Peak Ave.

HOSPICE CARE

Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury. Hospice and palliative care involve a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the person’s needs and wishes. Support is provided to the person’s loved ones as well. The focus of hospice relies on the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity and that our loved ones will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so. Hospice care is covered under Medicare, Medicaid, most private insurance plans, HMOs, and other managed care organizations.
