Free Trainings for Businesses Aim to Reduce Isolation Among Families Impacted by Alzheimer’s For the 15 million Americans providing care for their loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease, isolation is a serious risk. With the unpredictable nature of the disease, symptoms such as memory loss, repetition and poor judgment lead many to choose to avoid the outside world rather than risk the possibility of unpleasant, awkward or even frightening situations in public. In fact, in a recent survey of Alzheimer’s caregivers, 74 percent reported that they and their loved ones have become more isolated from the community as a result of the disease. Furthermore, 85 percent reported that they feel a reduced quality of life due to isolation. As a community, we cannot allow this to happen to our neighbors, friends and loved ones. We can change these frightening statistics here at home. To do just that, the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Seattle, West Seattle and Shoreline is helping launch the Alzheimer’s Friendly BusinessSM program. The program includes a training for local businesses that is designed to help employees understand the disease and provide simple techniques to ensure customers with Alzheimer’s are treated with compassion and respect. The training itself is quick and can be done for businesses in as little as 30 minutes, but the impact on families in our community can be long-lasting. For a family coping with Alzheimer’s disease, going to a restaurant where a hostess will know the best place to seat you to prevent your loved one from becoming confused can lead to a much-needed night out of the house. Errands to the bank may seem less overwhelming when you know the teller on the other side of the counter can recognize and politely respond to an unexpected behavior as a result of Alzheimer’s, where others in that same situation might be confused or even rude. Seattle, West Seattle and Shoreline businesses can work directly with the local Home Instead Senior Care office to arrange an in-person training for their employees, and an online version of the training is also available at AlzheimersFriendlyBusiness.com. Once the training is completed, businesses will receive a window decal with the Alzheimer’s Friendly Business logo, allowing those caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia to easily recognize these businesses taking the lead in making our community more Alzheimer’s friendly. For more information about Home Instead Senior Care’s Alzheimer’s Friendly Business program, including information on what to look for in an Alzheimer’s Friendly Business, visit www.AlzheimersFriendlyBusiness.com or call 206-395-2509.

Free Trainings for Businesses Aim to Reduce Isolation Among Families Impacted by Alzheimer’s For the 15 million Americans providing care for their loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease, isolation is a serious risk. With the unpredictable nature of the disease, symptoms such as memory loss, repetition and poor judgment lead many to choose to avoid the outside world rather than risk the possibility of unpleasant, awkward or even frightening situations in public. In fact, in a recent survey of Alzheimer’s caregivers, 74 percent reported that they and their loved ones have become more isolated from the community as a result of the disease. Furthermore, 85 percent reported that they feel a reduced quality of life due to isolation. As a community, we cannot allow this to happen to our neighbors, friends and loved ones. We can change these frightening statistics here at home. To do just that, the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Seattle, West Seattle and Shoreline is helping launch the Alzheimer’s Friendly BusinessSM program. The program includes a training for local businesses that is designed to help employees understand the disease and provide simple techniques to ensure customers with Alzheimer’s are treated with compassion and respect. The training itself is quick and can be done for businesses in as little as 30 minutes, but the impact on families in our community can be long-lasting. For a family coping with Alzheimer’s disease, going to a restaurant where a hostess will know the best place to seat you to prevent your loved one from becoming confused can lead to a much-needed night out of the house. Errands to the bank may seem less overwhelming when you know the teller on the other side of the counter can recognize and politely respond to an unexpected behavior as a result of Alzheimer’s, where others in that same situation might be confused or even rude. Seattle, West Seattle and Shoreline businesses can work directly with the local Home Instead Senior Care office to arrange an in-person training for their employees, and an online version of the training is also available at AlzheimersFriendlyBusiness.com. Once the training is completed, businesses will receive a window decal with the Alzheimer’s Friendly Business logo, allowing those caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia to easily recognize these businesses taking the lead in making our community more Alzheimer’s friendly. For more information about Home Instead Senior Care’s Alzheimer’s Friendly Business program, including information on what to look for in an Alzheimer’s Friendly Business, visit www.AlzheimersFriendlyBusiness.com or call 206-395-2509.

Eclectic, artsy, earthy, urban and committed to a better future...you'll find all this and more at the 13th Annual Sustainable Ballard Festival. When you join this group of Ballard neighbors on Aug 27th at Ballard Commons Park, you'll encounter creativity, passion and community while learning about daily practices and big steps toward more sustainable living. In a time of uncertainty about our nation's leadership, People Power has been chosen as this year's festival theme as a reminder of what is still possible locally and as a model for all communities. As always, the fest is FREE to the public and perfect for families. The Mayor is expected to kickoff the fest with a bike parade organized by Seattle Summer Parkways. There will be a creation station for bubblewands, musical instruments, and bottlecap flowers. Find skateboard lessons in the skatebowl, a family bike expo on the street, goats and chickens in the urban farm zone, live music on the solar powered stage, and birdhouse building with festival sponsor Built Green. Local businesses offer games, activities and prizes with a green twist. There will be food carts, of course, and a Tea Garden presented by Miro Tea, a fundraiser for the festival featuring local desserts and unlimited tea sampling for a $5 donation. With a membership of 1500, Sustainable Ballard shows that energy independence and self-reliance does not mean "going it alone." Attendees are participants and co-creators of the festival experience, and everyone in the community is welcome. While the mood is festive, the message is a serious one-to discover new possibilities and a deepened commitment to living more lightly on the Earth. The choices we make daily can affect global climate change. Ballard neighbors and friends are invited to connect with each other by volunteering at the festival. When we engage, we become part of creating the thriving community and lifestyle we want and need. Contact volunteer@sustainableballard.org for details. Free Presented by Sustainable Ballard

Festival of Favorites at 7:30 PM on 8/27/2016
Start Time: 8/27/2016 7:30:00 PM
Location: Ballard First Lutheran Church - Downstairs Social Hall

End Time: 8/27/2016 9:00:00 PM

For five years The Market Street Singers has presented community sing-alongs featuring favorite choral classics, familiar “chestnuts” that singers continue to love no matter how many times they sing them. The success of these “Festivals of Favorites” has led us to offer them as ongoing events, at various venues, including NW Folklife. There has recently been markedly increased interest in choral sing-alongs in the area and we are proud to be part of this exciting trend. We provide the music, all you have to do is show up and enjoy the fun. This is not designed as a concert performance, but rather a community music making event. Whereas singers of all abilities are welcome, non-singers are welcome to show up to just enjoy listening to the music. And singers, YOU get to choose what music we do from a list of over 25 titles. Things like… Billings “Africa” and “David’s Lamentation” - Mozart “Ave Verum Corpus” - Biebl “Ave Maria” - Farrant “Call to Remembrance” - Farmer “Fair Phyllis” - Rutter “For the Beauty of the Earth” and “Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind” - Tallis “If Ye Love Me” - JS Bach “Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring” - Lassus “Jubilate Deo” - Morley “Now is the Month of Maying” and “April is in My Mistress’ Face” - Vittoria “O Magnum Mysterium” and “O Vos Omnes” - Rene Clausen “Seat Me as a Seal” - Palestrina “Sicut Cervus” - “Sumer is a cumin in” - Brahms “Waldesnacht” - Bennet “Weep O Mine Eyes” - Randall Thompson “The Road Not Taken” and “Alleluia” – Houston Bright “Rainsong” – Jeffers “I Have Had Singing” – and Joseph Martin “The Awakening.” A suggested participant donation of $15 will help cover expenses. There is no need to reserve a space, in the unlikely event we run out of music scores, you may have to share with someone. But isn’t this a lovely way to make friends? We do, however, want to make sure we have enough chairs set up. If you plan to attend we request you notify director@marketstreetsingers.org or call 206-465-3296. SPREAD THE WORD! There is nothing better than a large crowd of happy people singing music they love, or music they are falling in love with. Pure choral joy. Almost as good as a choral jukebox! Visit the Market Street Singers online for more information visit www.MarketStreetSingers.org The Market Street Singers is a choral ensemble for Ballard that builds connections within diverse communities. Celebrating the joy of choral music among singers and listeners, we aspire to cultivate neighborhood pride with choral arts that are truly community identified. The Market Street Singers is a recipient of the Civic Partners Grant from the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. We are also a 501(c)3 organization. Your gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. We are based in Seattle and registered with the Washington State’s Charities Program.
