Executive Director’s Report
2014 A HISTORIC YEAR
2014 was truly a historic year for the Edmonds
Senior Center (EdSC). We began a journey
which will see the construction of a new senior/
community center on this extraordinary waterfront site. The new Center building will be
owned by EdSC with a ground lease with the
City who will maintain the Regional Park. We
are just working through the legal details of this with the City and anticipate
having an agreement in January. The City Council, Mayor Earling, and City
staff have all been supportive partners in this effort.
Key events during the year included the January 21 Special
Membership Meeting which enthusiastically supported the project, the
March 18 City Council unanimous Resolution 1313 endorsing the project
and reaffirming this site as the permanent home of the senior center, and a
joint unanimous County supporting resolution on June 4. On May 18 the
Center’s Board of Directors unanimously endorses the goal of building a
new senior/community center and establishes a Capital Campaign Committee with Rose Cantwell and Diane Buckshnis as co-chairs. That Committee
is about
All through the year the Strategic Planning Committee led by chair
Steve Bernheim and vice chair Phil Lovell has provided guidance, wise
counsel and direction to the process. They insisted on “due diligence” in
two primary spheres – political and legal. They also stressed the relationship
between design and program. As a result we have engaged legal counsel, had
conceptual drawings done by two architectural firms, and worked with City
and County Councils and State legislators.
MILESTONES ACHIEVED IN 2014
2014 was the final year of our three year contract with Bastyr
University to provide a natural medicine program at the senior center. We
have agreed on a new contract going forward. This summer we began to
offer a second shift on Wednesdays. The wait times for appointments has
been dramatically reduced. Younger people are now starting to come as the
program is available to all ages. We celebrated our relationship with Bastyr in
an Open House on November 12. Special thanks to the Peg and Rick Young
Foundation for their continuing support of the Bastyr Clinic.
2014 was also the third year of our partnership with the Verdant
Health Commission funding the Enhance Wellness Program. Their funding
has doubled for the next three years and has enabled us to offer the PEARLS
Program for Depression in conjunction with the UW Health Promotion
Research Center. Finally, this was the third year of hosting the South Snohomish County Cold Weather Shelter for the Homeless in conjunction with
four local churches who provide groups of very dedicated volunteers who
staff the Shelter.

patience, and just plain love for one another.” —Erma Brombeck
At Edmonds Senior Center we are blessed with wonderful volunteers. They make a difference and help to make our outreach to

leadership, and its loud and proud fans. You

Trophy along with other interactive exhibits,

Center
Sign up: at the Front Desk
While most Americans say they would prefer to live through
the end of their lives at home, surrounded by friends and
family, the reality is the exact opposite. Studies show that
when people age 65 and older plan in advance with their
doctors they are much more satisfied about their preferences
for care through the end of their lives. Learn how your
values and beliefs can guide your personal choices regarding
medical care, how to select the best person to speak for you
in the event that you are unable to speak for yourself, what
life sustaining treatments may be offered to you at the end of
life and the pros and cons of each treatment and what forms
you need to fill out and share with your doctor to document
your choices.

Presented by: Chelsea Rowe, AmeriCorps Community
Preparedness Educator, American Red Cross
Sign up: at the Front Desk
A disaster is typically considered to be any event that
overwhelms the capacity of 9-1-1 and emergency responders.
So although emergency assistance will always be on the scene
after a disaster, there’s no guarantee you will be able to get
through to 9-1-1, and it’s improbable that they will be able
to respond to everyone who needs their services. The better
prepared we are as individuals, families, and at workplaces
the more likely we are to survive during a disaster and allow
emergency responders to help those in need. In this workshop
you will learn how to get prepared, create a disaster plan, what
is needed in an emergency supply kit along with other very
useful information.
