Presented by: Library staff and local health care professionals

The Five Wishes Living Will is a new resource developed by the Aging with Dignity organization. This easily completed document lets your family and doctors know who you want to make health care decisions for you when you can’t make them, the kind of medical treatment you want or don’t want near end of life, how comfortable you want to be near end of life, how you want people to treat you near end of life, and what you want your loved ones to know near end of life. The will is a legal document recognized in Pennsylvania and is the only advance directive / living will that speaks to all of a person’s concerns, not just the medical and legal ones. Join us to learn more about the benefits of using the Five Wishes Living Will. Copies of the form will be available to program participants after the program for $1.00.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM PLAYING ST. BARBARA: AN AUTHOR TALK BY MARIAN SZCZEPANSKI Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Join us as Marian Szczepanski discusses her debut novel Playing St. Barbara. Inspired by her family background and her work at a Houston domestic violence hotline, her novel focuses on how the secrets, struggles and self-redemption of a Depression-era coal miner’s wife and three daughters play out against a turbulent historical backdrop of Ku Klux Klan intimidation and the 1933 Pennsylvania Mine War. Their intertwined lives eerily mirror the 7th century legend of St. Barbara, patroness of miners, and each woman writes her own courageous ending to St. Barbara’s story. Copies of her book will be available for purchase and signing after the program.

Ms. Szczepanski was raised in Greensburg and is the granddaughter of immigrant coal miners. She has an MFA in fiction from the Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College and a BA in American Studies from the University of Notre Dame. Her short fiction garnered the de Maine Award for an Emerging Writer from Clackamas Literary Review. She has been recognized by the Houston Press Club for magazine feature writing, and the Houston Press named her to the 2014 list of “100 Houston Creatives.” Read more about her at www.marianszczepanski.com.

Presented by: Betty Robison, MSN, RN-BC, Gerontology Educator at the Aging Institute

Six out of ten seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia exhibit wandering type behaviors. Unfortunately three out of ten will become lost when they wander away. This behavior can result in serious consequences because if the individual is not located within eight hours, they are at high risk for serious injury or death. This presentation will focus on recognizing and preventing wandering behaviors, maintaining a secure environment, search and rescue information along with location devices, and having an appropriate plan of action in place should it become necessary. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.

Register for this program online, at the library's circulation desk or call 724-941-9430.

Facilitator: Julie Ann Sullivan, Certified Laughter Leader

What is a Laughter Club? Laughter Clubs promote laughter inside to support happiness outside. Participants get together to use laughter to improve health and outlook, as laughter can reduce stress, strengthen your immune system, and lower your blood pressure. Laughter Clubs utilize a systematic activity approach that is based on a foundation of practices, such as yoga, meditation, and modern medical science. Members of Laughter Clubs are engaged in active and interactive participation. Register for this program online, at the library's circulation desk, or call 724-941-9430. "Drop-Ins" are always welcome and they can bring a friend. This is an introductory session; recurring meeting dates will be determined at first meeting.
