NAMI Central Middlesex and The Edinburg Center will sponsor a NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program specifically for families of persons diagnosed with serious mental illness.  The 12-week series of classes will start in Lexington on Thursday, September 18,  from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.

The course will cover information about schizophrenia, the mood disorders (bipolar disorder and major depression), panic disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder; coping skills such as handling crisis and relapse; basic information about medications; listening and communication techniques; problem-solving skills; recovery and rehabilitation; and self-care around worry and stress.  The curriculum has been written by an experienced family member mental health professional and the course will be taught by NAMI Massachusetts family member volunteers who have taken intensive training as course instructors.

The Family to Family course balances basic psychoeducation and skill-training with emotional support, self-care and empowerment.  We hope families with relatives who have a serious mental illness will take advantage of this unique opportunity.
The course is designed specifically for parents, siblings, spouses, teen-age and adult children and significant others of persons with severe and persistent mental illness.  The course is not appropriate for individuals who themselves suffer from one of the major mental illnesses.

The NAMI Family-to-Family Education Course is free for participants.  Pre-Registration is required.

Whenever possible, the role of an Alzheimer's caregiver should be to maintain positive emotions in the individual affected by Alzheimer's. This should be done by emphasizing the individual's strengths and abilities, rather than dwelling on abilities that have been lost. Known as the "habilitation" model of care, this approach can be used to great effect by those caring for their loved ones at home. This presentation will focus on important issues facing the home caregiver. Topics include making adaptations to the home environment, safety considerations, and taking advantage of community resources.

This program celebrates two of England’s most notable composers: George Butterworth and Sir Edward Elgar. Butterworth, one of the most promising English composers to emerge at the turn of the 20th century, died at the age of 21 at the Battle of the Somme in WWI. His masterpiece A Shropshire Lad demonstrates what great talent he possessed at such an early age. Elgar’s stunning choral masterpiece Dream of Gerontius — heard only twice in the past 28 years in Boston — marks the instant when a person leaves this world and the journey of the soul begins. Elgar’s melodies convey faith, sorrow, and wonder all at once in one of the most inspiring works ever written.

Along the way we will enjoy some of the best vistas as well as one of the largest and best-preserved fieldstone foundations to be found in Lexington.

We will hike in all but steady rain. Wear appropriate footgear for hilly woods trails and actual weather conditions. Hiking poles would be useful, especially if the ground is frozen. Meet Walk Leader at the end of parking lot C in the Cranberry Hill Office Complex. The entrance to the office park is on Massachusetts Avenue, just south of Marrett Road.

Maps of conservation lands can be found at http://www.lexingtonma.gov/conservation/conland.cfm

CLC will be inaugurating a series of snowshoe walks for its program of winter walks. This will be a series of three walks that will be scheduled for weekend dates in the months of January and February. The purpose of the walks will be to simply get out and use those snowshoes that you have tucked away in your basement or garage, while enjoying exploring some of our open space parcels in their winter splendor. Watch for further details when we publish information about our winter walk series.

The appetizer for this delectable program is English composer Sir Edward Elgar’s poignant and romantic Serenade for Strings. Our own wonderful pianist, Paul Carlson, offers up one of the most beloved Russian piano concertos of all time for the next course: Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 features high drama and soaring melodies, ingredients Tchaikovsky uses well. Mendelssohn’s boisterous “Italian” Symphony No. 4 imparts the final flavor of the evening, balancing out this very European presentation for the senses.
