If you have been following recent newsletter entries on Neighborly Services through Cameron Commons, you know that we have been moving towards what we now call SHORT TERM ASSISTANCE to neighbors in Cameron Park in a somewhat more organized fashion. There has been a list of examples of short term assistance that 25 volunteers thus far have reviewed and completed indicating which short term assistance they might be willing to offer per - sons in need in the neighborhood who are unable to perform certain tasks themselves. Now there is a corresponding request for - mat developed by which individuals in the neighborhood can request short term assistance from neighbor volunteers. To avoid volunteer burn-out, requests are made through volunteer coordinator who may pro - vide both information and referral (I and R) and connection of volunteers with persons requesting particular short term assistance. During the month of January, informa - tion and referral was provided to at least three people by the volunteer coordinator. In addition, one volunteer was matched with a neighbor following hospital dis - one visit. Another neighbor who had volun - teered to provide refreshments for events, utilizing our matching process through the coordinator, will be providing refreshments at one of our upcoming forums. During January alone, our social work student has provided tech support to 4 older persons at their homes in the neighborhood; helping bridge the technological generation gap. She has also heard older neighbors tell their stories, and considers with them some factors they might wish to think about in planning to age in place in community. The volunteer coordination, informa - tion and referral, and short term assistance, whether provided by neighbors or our stu - dent intern are offered free of charge to CP neighbors and CC members. Availability of both information and referral and short term assistance are contingent upon avail - ability of volunteers. Would you like to volunteer to offer short term assistance to a neighbor in Cameron Park? Would you like to request short term assistance from a neighbor volunteer? Call our new Google phone numbers at 919-346-4992 and number) condentially to explore further. Marty Lamb, neighbor in Cameron Park over 40 years    Cameron Commons News Winter / February 2020 \r\f \n\t\b See Salona, Page 2 \r\f\f \f \n\t    \f\b This is my second semester working with Cameron Commons, under the supervision of Marty Lamb. It has been a wonderful learning opportunity, everything you expect an internship to bring. There has been the opportunity to work individ - ually with neighborhood residents, one on one in their homes. In this role, I hear their what individuals may need to better assist them in aging in place in community. I also worked on creating and maintaining a vol - unteer database which will help us to quick - ly and efciently match up neighbors with a volunteer to get the short term assistance that they may need. Personally, I try to also help folks with technical support assistance, looking at smart phones, laptops and iPads as issues may arise with which persons need assistance to bridge the possible technolog - ical generation gap. One aspect that I am very passionate about is introducing Netix it before. It’s a wealth of entertainment at one’s ngertips and has proven to be a great wa

y to pass the time in the home. On the macro level, there has been the NC Coali - tion on Aging meetings which is vital when it comes to being a part of advocacy for We had a great turnout at our last Cameron Commons Forum, presented by Cameron Park’s very own nancial genius Dr. David Strevel. We learned a lot that evening about indexed funds, no-load mutual funds, how to manage investments without paying big fees, and much more! We have 3 more Forums coming up soon. The schedule is on page 2. 2   \f  Thanks to a three-year grant from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, the YMCA is able to offer Medical Memberships to members of the community who need access to quality, evidence-based programs, health coaching and work out facilities. A YMCA Medical Membership is one where the patient is referred to the YMCA by a physician. Typically, the referral comes as a result of a health diagnosis such as pre-diabetes, adult and child weight man - agement, cancer, high blood pressure or the risk of falls due to age or illness. However, if you have already had your annual wellness visit for the year, or you know you have a condition that could ben - et from a YMCA Medical Membership, you can download a self-referral form and send it in for your doctor or health care pro - vider’s approval. Each YMCA Medical Membership is a bundle of three services - a YMCA mem - bership, participation in an evidence-based program and care coordination. YMCA Medical Memberships last the duration of your prescribed, evidence-based program. You can be prescribed more than one pro - gram. If you are a current YMCA member, our staff can transfer your membership for the duration of your medical membership. Financial Assistance is available for self-pay medical memberships. For more information, click on this link: Medical Membership s , or call the YMCA staff at 919-582-9396.

Coming into the program I was not very sure about where I was going to specialize after graduating with my MSW, but after having such a rich experience at Cameron Commons, I have decided to dedicate my career to senior care. The Cameron Park residents that I have worked with here in the neighborhood have been nothing short of warm and welcoming. I feel very natu - ral and at ease working with seniors, and I really value the life experiences that they can share with me. The life stories and experiences of older adults have been very unique and inspiring, and I think it’s very important for the younger generation to learn all they can from their elders. The perspective offered, is one that you will not nd anywhere else, so we ought to be seiz - ing the moment and absorbing as much as possible. As I continue to work in this e

ld I feel like I am getting back as much as I am giving. My connection and care with seniors is a symbiotic relationship. I look forward to continuing the rest of the semester on this path of learning and growing with the folks of Cameron Park. Naturally I have been trained to keep any personal information I learn about the people with whom I engage highly condential. If you have any tech needs, or just want to say hi and grab a cup of coffee please reach out to Marty Lamb who will get us in touch. Her phone number is 919-346-4992 . I look forward to connecting! Salona Lutchminarain, Social Work Intern at Cameron Commons \f From page 1 ‚\b\f  ƒ At the start of this year, the Cameron Commons Board of Directors approved a new logo for Cameron Commons. Cameron Common s \f \f\f  \f  \b \fƒ\b\f\f \f\b \f„ There are so many places to explore and enjoy near our neighborhood, but we may not always be aware of them. For example, some of our neighbors (above photo) have just “escaped” from the Escape Room 5280 at 123 Glenwood Avenue. Half were in the Sherlock Room while the other half were in the Heist Room . The challenge in the Sherlock Room is as follows: “When you have eliminated the impos - sible, whatever remains, however improba - ble, must be the truth” “Professor Moriarty and his ally are plotting a new crime! There are bombs hidden in different parts of the London Underground. You have one hour to visit Moriarty’s ofce, identify his assistant, locate the bombs and escape!” The challenge in the Heist Room is: “An eccentric millionaire stepped out for a one hour walk. This is exactly how much time your team has to rob his house! You will nd cash, diamonds, gold, paint - ings… But! There is a problem. The man turned his house into a trap full of puzzles, safes, hidden places, locks and other ‘surprises’! Only the most creative and organized thieves can rob the house and escape within one hour…” Yes, you are just playing games, but with adventure and thrill as fun and unique way of spending quality time with friends or family. Escape rooms, as the name implies, are the rooms that you have to es - cape from. You will be stuck in an adven - turous themed room with your friends that you have to escape within a limited amount of time. These rooms will contain puzzles and codes that you and your team will have to break in order to escape. It is a unique way of challenging your mind and working with your team on reaching specic goals. You will be given a theme and a situation, and you will have to use your problem-solv - ing skills accordingly. Escape room games are described as not being just totally fun and games. It also is said to have many edu - cational benets. One of them may include expansion of focus. When you are inside an escape room, you will have to remain focused throughout to solve the problem. What other possibilities for play have you discovered in and around our neigh - borhood? Let’s share with each other. -Marty Lamb \f \fƒ ­\b\f …†\b\f ‡
