    (EMAILWIRE.COM, March 17, 2015 ) Boca Raton, FL -- Paradise Home Health Care in Southeast Florida has been chosen by the South Palm Beach Chapter of the National Parkinson Foundation to facilitate Caregiver Support Groups at both the Boca Raton and Boynton Beach YMCAs.

    The National Parkinson Foundation offers many services to its members. These range from educational materials and presentations, Tai Chi, fundraisers for Research, Music therapy as well as providing Exercise programs and Caregiver Support Groups at local YMCAs.

    Sherry Picker, MSW with Paradise Home Health Care has a strong background in facilitating Caregiver Support groups and says, "While I was in Graduate School to become a Social Worker, I thought I wanted to work clinically with individuals but have found groups to be my niche. When a group of people come together with something in common and can share their experiences, knowledge and feelings with each other, it is magical".

    Since Parkinson Disease is a Neurological Movement Disorder, it is very important that folks with this disease keep moving, exercising, dancing, boxing and other forms of physical therapy. Since it is usually their spouse who brings them to the YMCA, they usually stick around and NPF finds this time to be very productive to offer a Caregiver Support Group. Members appreciate having this service offered while they are already at the Y and not having to block out other time to take care of some of their own needs.

    Karen Altonen of SPBCCNPF relates; "we started with just a couple of people and it is so gratifying to see that the group has grown to between fifteen and twenty participants."

    Linda LeMonte, founder of PHHC shares, "Although Paradise Home Health Care primarily assists Older Adults with personal care and household chores, we feel strongly about contributing to our community. Volunteering with our chapter of the National Parkinson Foundation gives us a wonderful opportunity to help educate and guide familial caregivers as we also help reduce some of their ever present stress."

    More information is available either from PHHC - 561-672-7170 or with NPF's Jack Mueller - 561-322-9508.

    At the Boca Raton YMCA - the Surf & Turf Movement Program is on Mondays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15. In a separate room, spouses gather for the Caregiver Support Group.

    The schedule at the Boynton Beach YMCA is - Monday, Wednesday and Fridays mornings 10:00 to 11:00 for Surf & Turf and the Caregiver Support Group is at the same time in a different room on Mondays only.

    Eunice, a participant in Boca Raton adds, "I thought I knew a lot about caregiving, since I've been doing so with my husband for over ten years, but I find that I usually learn something new, and I enjoy the comradery with the group."

    Stephanie, a caregiver for her brother in Boynton Beach says, "This group is a lifeline for me. The other woman and a few men are so supportive. I grab my coffee, my brother and head for the Y on Mondays."

    Caregiver Stress is a 24/7 emotional weight and often there is physical care performed. There is no "training" for this job, no salary, benefits and no vacations. The PD Support Groups help by discussing individual concerns of living with and caring for a loved one with a degenerative disease, bringing in guest speakers to address specific related topics and sharing hope for a cure by presenting what is new in treatment and research.

    Ms. Picker adds: "usually when a member brings up a concern of their loved one, be it depression, medication questions, sleep disorders, frustration, other physical concerns of the disease, it is the other members who discuss what they have tried and what has worked, or not worked for them."

    The members keep in touch with each other and Ms. Picker during the week and their email contact is greatly valued when the snowbirds return north. Some of these snowbirds live in towns where there isn't a lot of Parkinson support so staying connected is very satisfying and helpful.

    Should any organization in either Broward or Palm Beach counties wish to start a Support Group, please contact Sherry at Paradise Home Health Care - 561-376-6225.

    (EMAILWIRE.COM, March 19, 2015 ) Queensland, Australia -- Donna Ferguson describes herself as "a bit of a rebel back in the day". As a teenager and young woman, she loved feeling like a salmon swimming upstream, breaking social norms, bucking trends and enjoying the noise and craziness of a healthy social life.

    Donna met and married a young man in her early 20's, whom she thought had the same zest for life and yearning to step outside the box and appreciate the world from a different point of view as she did. They hadn't been dating long before they wed, but she felt an instant connection with him, a real sense of belonging that she wanted to experience for the rest of her life.

    They were only married a short time before her life turned in to a horrifying nightmare. The man she thought was her Prince Charming turned in to a mentally, emotionally and physically abusive monster. www.rainbowsempoweringwomen.com

    "He was very violent, and he didn't need a reason to turn. Sometimes he'd go on a drinking binge for three days, only to come home and beat me because he was convinced I'd had an affair while he was gone," says Donna. "I have a scar above my eye that he opened up twice while beating me until I was black and blue."

    Donna displayed all the typical abusive signs of an unhealthy relationship. She was withdrawn, and had no self-confidence, self-respect or self-esteem. She became completely introverted, shy and barely left the house, and she severed many relationships with friends and family. She lost her ability to make decisions, believing her husband would be angry with her for taking control. She was alone living in perpetual terror, never knowing what the next trigger would be.

    "I feared for my life. It was a very real fear, and that's the power they hold over you. As soon as you break that power, they have nothing."

    The day Donna broke the cycle of abuse was the day she had a job interview. Her opportunity for independence made her husband nervous, and he spent the whole drive to the interview arguing with her. She knew that once they got home, he was going to beat her again.

    At the conclusion of the interview, Donna realised she had two choices - to get in the car with her husband and go back home to what would be a violent outburst, or walk away.

    Donna remembers, "I felt shit scared. I caught a taxi to my mum's house. While staying with my mum, he rang me from a phone box around the corner and threatened to kill himself. Instead of running back to him, I said, 'I'll call you an ambulance'. That's when I realised he had no control over me anymore and I was finally feeling empowered."

    Back then, there were no support groups for Donna to lean on as she transitioned in to her new life. While she had her family, she found they didn't understand the situation entirely because they hadn't lived through it, and she began to feel like a burden.

    Currently, the existing services for women with personal domestic violence stories offer help through the immediate aftermath of leaving an abusive relationship (women shelters, Centrelink payments, and accommodation and support services), yet there is little support for after the crisis period has ended (trauma healing, abuse run-off effects and rebuilding lives).

    Rainbows Empowering Women is an organisation that aims to take women on a journey to feeling empowered and free from domestic abuse. After feeling lost and "going completely off the rails" when her marriage ended, Donna says she would have flourished had she been surrounded with the right support and guidance. www.rainbowsempoweringwomen.com

    "The fear I had grown from that relationship took a long time to overcome," says Donna. "It took 12 months before I felt comfortable leaving the house on my own. I attracted so much negativity because I was depressed and had no self-esteem. I yearned for the things I had lost, instead of being grateful for the things that I had, and I had no idea how to move forward with my life.

    "But you get to a point where you really do get tired of living in fear and not sleeping, and you have to decide what's going to be best in your life. The only way you can live the life you deserve is by empowering yourself so you can empower others."

    About Rainbows Empowering Women:
    Rainbows Empowering Women empowers women to become emotionally and financially free, to have the confidence to live the life they deserve. They aim to give women the confidence to achieve their goals, so they can do whatever they want in life and fulfil their dreams.

The program includes learning how to become emotionally free and in control, build self-confidence and self-respect, unlock dreams and goals and become successful in life.

    (EMAILWIRE.COM, April 15, 2015 ) Providence, RI -- Select business leaders, appropriately nicknamed “Honorary Jailbird,”’ served a voluntary 60-minute sentence at Legal Sea Foods to raise funds for MDA. Between enjoying a delicious lunch and networking with other participants, MDA Jailbirds called friends and family to bail them out of jail. The $37,000 that was raised at Wednesday’s Lock Up will help fund MDA’s clinic at Rhode Island Hospital, summer camp tuition, essential equipment repairs, support groups and worldwide research.

    Among those who participated was Attorney Rob Levine, the infamous ‘Heavy Hitter’, who raised more than $10,000 and became Rhode Island’s top raising Honorary Jailbird ever! An incredible achievement that “could not have been accomplished without the help of all the dedicated and giving friends, vendors, and employees who I have been so fortunate to surround myself with,” says Levine, “thank you to everyone for all of your support and help.”

    Attorney Levine’s commitment to his community began at the age of 16 when he joined the local emergency response team as a medical technician. Levine later served in the Rhode Island National Guard as a military police officer and continued on to join the Central Falls Police Department. Working as a public servant inspired Levine to pursue a career in law. “I became a lawyer so that I could have an impact on the community in a more global sense, and reach more people suffering from injuries and disabilities,” he says.

    While proud to have made history for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in Rhode Island, Levine humbly insists, “Every dollar raised- by every person- for MDA makes a difference.”

    MDA runs more than 80 summer camps across the nation, giving children with muscle disease the opportunity to experience a week without barriers. “We’re very happy and very proud,” says Traci Fulford, of Ocean State Behavioral, “to have supported these wonderful kids in their quest to go to camp.”

    MDA is the world’s leading nonprofit health organization sponsoring research seeking the causes of and effective treatments for neuromuscular diseases. MDA research grants currently are supporting more than 250 projects worldwide. MDA covers 43 diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

    The following businesses were present at last Wednesday’s Lock Up: Liberty Mobility, Ocean State Behavioral, Something Fishy Aquariums, Millwork One, H&R Block, Technology Advisory Group, Prudential Gammons Realty, Real Estate One Limited, Warwick VFW, West Warwick Public Works Department, Shalvey Bros Landscaping, Right at Home, Pilgrim High School, Laird Plastics, Fisher Auto Parts, Gardiner Law, West Shore Animal Clinic, Pilgrim Lutheran Church, Kirshenbaum & Kirshenbaum, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Family Tree Childcare, Office Direct, and Home Loan Investment Bank.

    Paradise Home Health Care

    Home Care in Boca Raton



    Help at Home for Boca Raton Seniors
    (EMAILWIRE.COM, April 16, 2015 ) Boca Raton, FL -- Dr. James Cassidy of the Personal Physician Care Community Center located at; 4800 Linton Blvd. Suite F-111, Delray Beach, FL 33445 has invited Sherry Picker, MSW of PHHC to assist in launching this new group for family members around South Palm Beach County.

    The Caregiver Support Group will meet on the last Wednesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. and last an hour. The first meeting will be Wednesday, May 27th at the Center.

    Parkinson Disease in a neuro-degenerative Movement Disorder whereby not enough Dopamine is produced in the brain. It is characterized by such symptoms as: rigidity, slowness, freezing, tremors, speech or swallowing problems and eventually some cognitive impairment.

    Dr. Cassidy explains that "there are so many people in this area (100,000) who are managing their Parkinson Disease and need support. Often the family caregiver is the spouse who is likely to be in their 70s and 80s and may need help themselves."

    Linda Lemonte, Founder and Administrator of Paradise Home Health Care adds; "This is a natural fit for us since we are volunteers of the South Palm Beach County Chapter of the National Parkinson Foundation and lead some of their Support Groups at both the Boca Raton and Boynton Beach YMCAs. We are committed to families dealing with PD, and Alzheimer's disease and offer individuals and families to sign up without having to use a regular schedule, but rather use home care as they need to."

    Sherry Picker states, "I try to help people understand that they are not alone in living with this disease. There is a lot of support in this area, be it, Physical Therapy, Support Groups, Organizations, and so forth. It is so important to learn from others who are in the same situation, or at least very similar, as well as to share what you know. A big feature of PD is that no two people have the same disease. There is a lot of research being done and hopes for better medications, treatments and even a cure may be realized in the near future."

    Some of the topics to be discussed are:
    Resources in the community and Government Benefits
    Disease Symptoms and natural aging process
    Sharing of information about treatment, medications and research
    Coping with feelings of frustration, anger, guilt, exhaustion...
    Providing expert guest speakers
    Discuss concerns of the group members

    Shen Yun NAshville 2015


     

    Dance show in Nashville


     


    Popular events in Nashville coming to TPAC


    (EMAILWIRE.COM, April 26, 2015 ) Nashville, TN -- The Tennessee Falun Dafa Association, in partnership with the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, has announced that it is presenting the famous Shen Yun show at the TPAC Andrew Jackson Hall on May 1-2, 2015. This performance is among the main highlights of the upcoming events in Nashville.
    "The Shen Yun show is certainly one of the most awaited things to do in Nashville this coming month," says Loraine Harding, a dedicated TPAC theater-goer.

    In Sydney, the Shen Yun show has been called "an explosion of color and movement" and regarded as a "perfect mix of technology and dance." Last year's tour has been dubbed by the USC's US-China Institute as "without question the largest and most sustained tour focusing on Chinese culture that's ever happened in the United States."
    The performances include intricate dances and stunning acrobatic moves while also displaying ancient Chinese costumes. It recreates lighthearted fables while also hinting at political undertones that criticize the modern Chinese Communist government.

    According to the Shen Yun Performing Arts, the performance showcases a classical Chinese dance meant to illustrate five thousand years of Chinese history. The new sound of the orchestra is a unique combination of East and West, while the costumes and animated backdrops transport viewers to a new world. This ancient culture has nearly been destroyed when the Chinese Communists took over the nation.

    Based in New York, the non-profit Shen Yun Performing Arts has performed in more than a hundred cities over 5 continents all over the world. Its show has been performed in several world-renowned theaters including the Royal Festival Hall in London, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York, the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and Le Palais de Congrès in Paris.

    Members of royalty have attended in Europe, while the performance has garnered sold-out shows across Asia and the US. The wonders of Chinese civilization have become a modern cultural phenomenon. In 2006, the Shen Yun Performing Arts started out as a single troupe. Today, it has expanded into four troupes travelling all over the world.
    The ticket prices range from $52 to $132. Tickets may be ordered by calling Shen Yun Ticketing at 1-888-974-3698 or calling the TPAC Box Office at 615-782-4040 from 10 AM to 6 PM on Mondays through Fridays. On Saturdays, calls for tickets can be made from 10 AM to 2 PM. Patrons may also email for tickets at nashville@tnFalunDafa.org, and may also buy tickets in person at the TPAC Box Office at 505 Deaderick St, Nashville, TN 37243 from 10 AM to 5 PM on Mondays through Fridays.

    To learn more about the show visit https://www.shenyunperformingarts.org/nashville

    Children under 4 years old are not admitted, and opera or ballet performance attire is recommended. The performances are scheduled to start at 7:30 Pm on May 1 and at 2 PM on May 2, and viewers are required to be seated before the start of the performances. The show runs for 2 hours and 15 minutes including breaks

    (EMAILWIRE.COM, April 29, 2015 ) Wausau, WI -- Dale Eaton, a partner at the law firm Eaton, John, Overbey & Welles, LLP in Wausau, Wisconsin, lost his daughter, Emily Eaton, to the H1N1 flu virus in 2009. Emily was just 12 years old. Eaton and his wife, Jennifer, started a charity, Emily's Path, Inc., in her memory. The organization's mission is to bring happiness to children facing challenges in their lives. Since its founding, Emily's Path has given more than $100,000 to benefit children coping with economic hardship, dealing with special needs, grieving the loss of a loved one, suffering from health problems or other facing other life challenges.

    "As the years pass, my wife and I watch the children Emily went to school with growing older and celebrating milestones in their lives," Dale Eaton shared. "Emily would have been a graduating senior at Wausau West High School this year. Six years have passed since her death, and you start to feel like the rest of the world has moved on. Our grief continues. However, I would certainly have understood if her classmates would be more focused on their own lives and their futures at this point."

    That is why the Eatons were so surprised to find out that the Wausau West Student Council is holding a fundraiser for Emily's Path to honor Emily's memory and to recognize her place in the Class of 2015. The event, dubbed "Color Emily's Path," is a spin-off of the popular "Color Run." Each attendee is asked to wear a white shirt, and will be given a 1/2 pound bag of colored powder. The participants will be tossing the powder into the air, resulting in a colorful crowd. Concessions will be available for purchase as well. The Student Council is also soliciting donations from area businesses, and the donated funds will be given to Emily's Path in the name of the Class of 2015.

    "When we found out what the students were doing, my law firm decided to help sponsor the event," Eaton said. "Teenagers tend to get a bad rap, and we wanted to support these incredible students, who are not only honoring Emily's memory with this event, but raising money to help other young people who are struggling."

    The event is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased for $5.00 in advance through the
    Wausau West Business Office, or for $8.00 on the day of the event. It will take place behind Wausau West High School from 4:00-6:00 pm on Sunday, May 10th, 2015. "We're glad they're having it on Mother's Day," Jennifer Eaton said. "It's a really great feel-good event for families of all ages. Emily would have loved it."

    (EMAILWIRE.COM, May 31, 2015 ) Detroit, MI – Marketing expert Jason Wize recently commented on his excitement about the upcoming Detroit Economic Club Young Leader Conference. The conference, which is to be held on June 16, 2015 at Detroit’s Cobo Center, will be the first such event for the prestigious Detroit Economic Club. “The list of speakers for the conference is nothing short of amazing,” exclaimed Wize. “Everyone who attends will have a chance to network with other Young Leaders, gain inspiration and learn new tools to take back to their workplaces. This event represents a significant opportunity for learning and growth,” Wize continued. “I’m just so thrilled to be a small part of such a great event.”

    The half day conference will be action packed with CEO and business superstars imparting wisdom on the 300 YL’s expected to attend. William Clay Ford, Jr. John Fikany, Andra Rush, Frank and Linzie Venegas and Rodrick Miller are all scheduled to speak. A very impressive list without question, however, the DEC Young Leaders have similar talent lined up for their regular monthly meetings as well.

    The success of the conference is due in large part to a group of Young Leaders that were tasked to form a planning committee. The committee, which includes Wize, has been working on the conference details for the past year, and in some cases longer. DEC leadership really let the YL’s take the lead in the planning process. From something as basic as the conference theme to the type of refreshments to be served, the conference was designed by YL’s for YL’s. As for Wize’s “small part,” in addition to his work on the planning committee, he will also be moderating the Entrepreneurship breakout session where Frank & Linzie Venegas of Ideal Group will speak. The Venegas’ Ideal Contracting was honored as General Motors Supplier of the Year in 2013.

    “I feel very fortunate to have worked with so many talented YL’s to put this conference together,” said Wize. “And I consider myself extremely fortunate to have a chance to learn from so many great business leaders. I can’t wait!”


    About the conference:

    The inaugural Detroit Economic Club (DEC) Young Leader Conference is a professional development opportunity uniquely designed by Young Leaders (YLs) exclusively for YL members. During this half-day conference attendees will experience powerful speakers, impactful breakout sessions and networking with other YLs. The conference will conclude with a reception attended by the DEC’s Board Members which consist of S.E. Michigan’s business, government, civic and non-profit leaders.

    (EMAILWIRE.COM, June 25, 2015 ) The highly anticipated first annual Detroit Economic Club’s Young Leader Conference was a smashing success. The sold out conference took place last week at Detroit’s Cobo Center and boasted over 400 attendees. A first ever event of its kind, the Young Leader conference was created by Young Leaders (YLs) exclusively for YLs. In addition to keynote addresses by Rodrick Miller of the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation and Ford Motor Company’s Bill Ford, the conference’s breakout sessions stole the show. That’s where Frank and Linzie Venegas spoke to a packed house of eager YLs who sought the Venegas’ entrepreneurship expertise.

    Without question Frank Venegas has a wealth of entrepreneurial experience. Venegas founded the Ideal Group in 1979 with profits he made from selling a Cadillac he won in a raffle. Today the Ideal Group employs over 500 people and has annual sales of $300 million. Venegas shared stories about Ideal Group’s journey and didn’t run from any tough audience questions. A major automotive supplier, many YLs asked questions about how the Ideal Group survived during the economic downturn and recession following 2008. “We didn’t survive,” Venegas declared. “We thrived because we worked hard to become more efficient and look for new revenue opportunities.” Venegas also demonstrated some products that have helped to grow the business. “See this, I don’t even know what this is exactly,” said Venegas. “But our customer had thousands of these in their warehouse collecting dust and we helped them liquidate that excess inventory. That produced revenue and profits for both of us!” Young Leaders in the audience were thrilled with the session. “It’s really great to be able to learn from such successful entrepreneurs in this kind of setting,” one YL stated. “I’ve never been able to meet and interact with so many movers and shakers.”

    Not to be outdone by her father, Linzie Venegas shared marketing and sales strategies that have propelled the Ideal Group to new heights. Linzie is Chief Marketing Officer of Ideal Shield, a key product line for the Ideal Group and recently assumed a corporate wide executive management position. Linzie is well known for her digital marketing expertise and during her tenure leading Ideal Shield she expanded promotional efforts beyond traditional marketing to now include other advertising platforms such as Search Engine Optimization, Social Media Marketing and a complete branding and messaging campaign. “Using Google Adwords, YouTube and other channels we’ve been able to find new customers from around the globe,” she said. “These markets were untapped prior to leveraging these new marketing programs so it’s been very exciting.”

    The entrepreneurship breakout session was moderated by Detroit Economic Club Young Leader Jason Wize of MediaProNow. An entrepreneur himself, Wize founded his business three years ago. “Entrepreneurship is a subject that I’m very passionate about,” said Wize. “There’s no one more excited than me to spend time with our amazing guests from the Ideal Group.” The YL conference included two additional breakout sessions where John Fikany of Microsoft and Andra Rush of the Rush Group spoke. Conference goers were abuzz with enthusiasm and excitement all day long which cumulated in a marvelous terrace reception overlooking the Detroit River. “This conference has been awesome,” another attendee gushed. “The speakers were terrific, I met a lot of great people and learned so much. I can’t wait to come back next year!”
