Dear friends,
You may have noticed a new face around the Center on Mondays—please join me in welcoming
Jeanne Vodka as our new Home Delivered Meals Coordinator II, working with Bev. Jeanne is taking over the Monday responsibility from Lynne Bonnell, so that Lynne can focus more exclusively
on planning out fun and exciting trips for everyone, in addition to her daily responsibilities as master shuttler to and from the center:).
Jeanne isn’t really a newcomer to the Center; she served as a MOW volunteer driver for a number
of years until moving to Oregon City. We’re thrilled to have her back, this time as a member of our
employee team! Make sure to introduce yourself to Jeanne when you see her, and help us to
make her feel welcome.
See you at the Center—Kathy

April 24th – 11:00 am – Canby Adult Center
Although healthcare providers strive to give every patient
the best care possible, patients can still be injured during
care. After serious physical injury or death, patients and
their families may struggle to get answers about what happened or to get the resolution they need to move forward.
Callers who left a message through March 15 will still be eligible for service, but
they are unable to accept any new requests for this service.
Clients may call back October 1 or after to receive an update for the 2015-16
LIHEAP program year funds.
Early Discussion and Resolution (EDR) brings together
patients (or their representatives) and their healthcare facilities or providers to talk about what happened and build
a shared understanding about what should happen next.
By participating in this process, it’s possible to get honest
answers and maintain relationships.
The PGE/NWN (Northwest Natural Gas) PROGRAMS REMAIN OPEN . If
you need assistance and are a customer of either Portland General Electric or

Senior Companion Volunteers Needed—
Special Training Not Required… You Can Make a Difference!
The Oregon Patient Safety Commission manages this
process as part of our mission to reduce the risk of adverse events and promote a culture of patient safety
across the state of Oregon. On April 24, Melissa Parkerton
will tell you more about the Oregon Patient Safety Commission’s activities and how to get started with Early Discussion and Resolution if you or someone you love wants
to wants to have a discussion.
Do you enjoy helping others? Would you like to help a senior with trips to the
grocery store, running errands or activities in their home such as putting puzzles
together, reading, watching movies? The Senior Companion Program may just
be what you are looking for. We need volunteers. We have many seniors and
adults with disabilities in the Canby community who would benefit from the program. However, currently I do not have enough volunteers to fill the need.
What is the Senior Companion Program?
Senior Companions are volunteers who can offer just a little extra help to homebound seniors and disabled adults. There is no charge for the services. If the
volunteer is income-qualified, they can receive a stipend for the services. Mileage is reimbursable.
The purpose of the program is to help seniors live independently in their own
familiar surroundings for as long as is safely possible.
Senior Companion Volunteers can:
Provide companionship by talking, taking walks, listening, sharing experiences, playing games or cards, reading or watching TV;
Provide transportation and accompany clients to their medical appointments,
the grocery store, and other household or personal errands;
Help with light housekeeping and meal planning and preparation;
Provide a break for family or primary caregiver.
Senior Companion Volunteers can NOT:
Provide services usually performed by a doctor or nurse,
Handle money or medication,
Do major household repairs or major cleaning,
Do any heavy lifting
Provide services for anyone other than the client.
For more information on how to become a Senior Companion Volunteer,
please contact Wendy May,

Smoke Alarms … Time to Check Them with
Canby Fire Department—Free Service
Have you checked your smoke alarm lately? Do you have
enough smoke alarms? Are they in the right places? When
did you last change your smoke alarm batteries? Do you
have 10 year batteries?
If you don’t know the answer to these questions, Canby
Fire Department would like to evaluate your smoke alarms
and put some new alarms up if you need them at no cost.
We received a Grant from the Oregon State Fire Marshal’s
office to put alarms up in any home that needs them. Call
Canby Fire at 503-266-5851 to set an appointment.
*Older adults (ages 65 and older) represent 13 percent
of the United States population but suffer 35 percent of all
fire deaths.
*Older adults are 2.7 times more likely to die in a fire
than the general population. The risk worsens as we age.
*People ages 85 and older are 4.6 times more likely
to die in a fire.
*Having a working smoke alarms can give you vital
seconds and a 95% chance of getting out in the event of
a Fire.
It really can mean the difference between life & death!
Advance Directive Workshop: April 29th at 10 am
“What You Need To Know”
In the state of Oregon, everyone has a right to express
their wishes in writing regarding their healthcare via an Advance Directive. Most
healthcare providers and lawyers suggest that all adults,
regardless of age, get their
healthcare affairs in order and
start thinking about their endof-life options and wishes long
before a health crisis occurs.
To learn more about advanced directives and start the
process of creating one,
Willamette Valley Hospice offers information and a free
workshop April 29th at 10 am.
“An advance directive is a gift
we can give to those who
might be in a position to make
medical decisions for us, if we
aren’t able to do so ourselves.
By writing our wishes down in
the legal format of the advance directive, it takes a
large burden off of our loved
ones. It’s free and easy to do,”
says Melissa Lindley, community outreach coordinator at
Willamette Valley Hospice,
who will be facilitating the
workshop. “Most of us plan for
the major events in our lives;
education, marriage, children
and retirement. Amazingly,
less than 50% of us formally
plan for the one major life
event that we all have in common – the end of life.”
Staff from Willamette Valley
Hospice will be available from
11:00 am – 12:00 pm, to assist
those who would like to stay to
complete their advance
By offering this workshop,
Willamette Valley Hospice
hopes to help families reduce
the anxiety and stress of making difficult decisions during a
medical emergency.
Willamette Valley Hospice resources are available to the
community at large. Participants will be encouraged to
share their completed directives with their loved ones,
attorney and physician.

Nutrition Tips from Marlene:
Go for the ‘bright’
On-going Classes and Activities
Summer Paving Projects Ahead
Eat the ‘brights’! Our focus is on red cabbage, beets and
red peppers for this issue. Red cabbage and red beets get
their pigment from specific antioxidants known as anthocyanins. They also contain moderately high amounts of vitamin
C and potassium. Potassium is an electrolyte mineral that
helps with muscle contractions, and it is also beneficial if
you have high blood pressure. Consuming potassium-rich
foods on a regular basis helps reduce the blood pressureelevating effect of sodium, according to the American Heart
The Oregon Department of Transportation
(ODOT) is working on a project to repave
OR 99E from SW Berg Parkway in Canby, to just north of
2nd Street in Aurora. ODOT expects construction to start in
summer 2015. The project will:
Red peppers contain almost 300 percent of your daily
vitamin C besides B6 and magnesium.
Vitamin C is
needed for proper iron absorption. If you are iron deficient,
try combining red peppers with your iron source for maximum absorption.
*Restripe OR 993 north of Lone Elder Road & add rumble strips to the shoulder and center line to improve safety.
Here is a recipe for combining these three power horses;
Red Flannel Slaw
2 medium beets boiled until tender, cut into matchsticks
1 small head of red cabbage shredded
½ red pepper minced
3 red radishes minced
*Repave OR 993, completing most of the work at night to
minimize impacts to local businesses, residents & travelers.
*Update sidewalk ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities ACT (ADA) standards at the corners of OR 993 & Berg
Parkway, Barlow Road, and 1st Street (in Aurora).

Facts About Volunteering
Research demonstrates that volunteering leads to
better health and that older volunteers are the
most likely to receive physical and mental health
benefits from their volunteer activities.
Non volunteers say that they are more likely to serve if
a trusted friend asks them to serve.
As a volunteer—YOU make a difference!
Remember as a child how you
would laugh so many times
throughout the day? The average child laughs 300 to 500
times a day while the average adult laughs only about 15
times a day. Research supports that humor as an
excellent stress management tool.
"You don't stop laughing because you grow old, you
grow old because you stop laughing."
Michael Pritchard
Thanks to all our
many volunteers—
you are appreciated!
