Free Trainings for Businesses Aim to Reduce Isolation Among Families Impacted by Alzheimer’s For the 15 million Americans providing care for their loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease, isolation is a serious risk. With the unpredictable nature of the disease, symptoms such as memory loss, repetition and poor judgment lead many to choose to avoid the outside world rather than risk the possibility of unpleasant, awkward or even frightening situations in public. In fact, in a recent survey of Alzheimer’s caregivers, 74 percent reported that they and their loved ones have become more isolated from the community as a result of the disease. Furthermore, 85 percent reported that they feel a reduced quality of life due to isolation. As a community, we cannot allow this to happen to our neighbors, friends and loved ones. We can change these frightening statistics here at home. To do just that, the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Seattle, West Seattle and Shoreline is helping launch the Alzheimer’s Friendly BusinessSM program. The program includes a training for local businesses that is designed to help employees understand the disease and provide simple techniques to ensure customers with Alzheimer’s are treated with compassion and respect. The training itself is quick and can be done for businesses in as little as 30 minutes, but the impact on families in our community can be long-lasting. For a family coping with Alzheimer’s disease, going to a restaurant where a hostess will know the best place to seat you to prevent your loved one from becoming confused can lead to a much-needed night out of the house. Errands to the bank may seem less overwhelming when you know the teller on the other side of the counter can recognize and politely respond to an unexpected behavior as a result of Alzheimer’s, where others in that same situation might be confused or even rude. Seattle, West Seattle and Shoreline businesses can work directly with the local Home Instead Senior Care office to arrange an in-person training for their employees, and an online version of the training is also available at AlzheimersFriendlyBusiness.com. Once the training is completed, businesses will receive a window decal with the Alzheimer’s Friendly Business logo, allowing those caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia to easily recognize these businesses taking the lead in making our community more Alzheimer’s friendly. For more information about Home Instead Senior Care’s Alzheimer’s Friendly Business program, including information on what to look for in an Alzheimer’s Friendly Business, visit www.AlzheimersFriendlyBusiness.com or call 206-395-2509.

"Rhinoceros" by Eugène Ionesco at 7:30 PM on 9/8/2016
Start Time: 9/8/2016 7:30:00 PM
Location: Mainstage Theatre at 12th Ave Arts

Website: www.strawshop.org
There is a ferocious rhinoceros on the loose in a small village, and no one seems alarmed. In fact, by the time Eugène Ionesco's cast of citizens can agree on what they saw, it becomes possible for individuals to join the herd. Imagine a business leader, a prominent family, and a politician stampeding as wild rhinoceroses, while a town idly debates whether it is even possible... Strawberry Theatre Workshop had been seeking to open 2016/17 with a theatrical conversation linked to the contemporary US Presidential Election. They found it in a French absurdist drama written in 1959. Rhinoceros will play Sep-8 through Oct-8 on the Mainstage at 12th Ave Arts. The company imagines a fall evening more politically relevant than the Trump/Clinton debates, which will be happening almost simultaneously. In Rhinoceros, Ionesco portrays a stampede-like movement that appeals mostly for its forward thrust. Energy comes first; ideas (rationalizations, mostly) come later. 12th Ave Arts Sep-8 to Oct-8, 2016 Thu-Fri-Sat 7:30pm, Mon 7:30pm ?no performance Mon Sep-12 Ticket Prices: $36 General, $27 Seniors and Students VOLUME DISCOUNT PRICING FOR "RHINOCEROS": Regular price is $36, but buy 3 tickets and that price drops to $30. Buy 4 or more tickets, and pay only $27 per seat. That means any group of four saves $36, and that's a FREE ticket. Online Sales: strawshop.brownpapertickets.com READ MORE AT: www.strawshop.org

Free Trainings for Businesses Aim to Reduce Isolation Among Families Impacted by Alzheimer’s For the 15 million Americans providing care for their loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease, isolation is a serious risk. With the unpredictable nature of the disease, symptoms such as memory loss, repetition and poor judgment lead many to choose to avoid the outside world rather than risk the possibility of unpleasant, awkward or even frightening situations in public. In fact, in a recent survey of Alzheimer’s caregivers, 74 percent reported that they and their loved ones have become more isolated from the community as a result of the disease. Furthermore, 85 percent reported that they feel a reduced quality of life due to isolation. As a community, we cannot allow this to happen to our neighbors, friends and loved ones. We can change these frightening statistics here at home. To do just that, the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Seattle, West Seattle and Shoreline is helping launch the Alzheimer’s Friendly BusinessSM program. The program includes a training for local businesses that is designed to help employees understand the disease and provide simple techniques to ensure customers with Alzheimer’s are treated with compassion and respect. The training itself is quick and can be done for businesses in as little as 30 minutes, but the impact on families in our community can be long-lasting. For a family coping with Alzheimer’s disease, going to a restaurant where a hostess will know the best place to seat you to prevent your loved one from becoming confused can lead to a much-needed night out of the house. Errands to the bank may seem less overwhelming when you know the teller on the other side of the counter can recognize and politely respond to an unexpected behavior as a result of Alzheimer’s, where others in that same situation might be confused or even rude. Seattle, West Seattle and Shoreline businesses can work directly with the local Home Instead Senior Care office to arrange an in-person training for their employees, and an online version of the training is also available at AlzheimersFriendlyBusiness.com. Once the training is completed, businesses will receive a window decal with the Alzheimer’s Friendly Business logo, allowing those caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia to easily recognize these businesses taking the lead in making our community more Alzheimer’s friendly. For more information about Home Instead Senior Care’s Alzheimer’s Friendly Business program, including information on what to look for in an Alzheimer’s Friendly Business, visit www.AlzheimersFriendlyBusiness.com or call 206-395-2509.

"Rhinoceros" by Eugène Ionesco at 7:30 PM on 9/8/2016
Start Time: 9/8/2016 7:30:00 PM
Location: Mainstage Theatre at 12th Ave Arts

There is a ferocious rhinoceros on the loose in a small village, and no one seems alarmed. In fact, by the time Eugène Ionesco's cast of citizens can agree on what they saw, it becomes possible for individuals to join the herd. Imagine a business leader, a prominent family, and a politician stampeding as wild rhinoceroses, while a town idly debates whether it is even possible... Strawberry Theatre Workshop had been seeking to open 2016/17 with a theatrical conversation linked to the contemporary US Presidential Election. They found it in a French absurdist drama written in 1959. Rhinoceros will play Sep-8 through Oct-8 on the Mainstage at 12th Ave Arts. The company imagines a fall evening more politically relevant than the Trump/Clinton debates, which will be happening almost simultaneously. In Rhinoceros, Ionesco portrays a stampede-like movement that appeals mostly for its forward thrust. Energy comes first; ideas (rationalizations, mostly) come later. 12th Ave Arts Sep-8 to Oct-8, 2016 Thu-Fri-Sat 7:30pm, Mon 7:30pm ?no performance Mon Sep-12 Ticket Prices: $36 General, $27 Seniors and Students VOLUME DISCOUNT PRICING FOR "RHINOCEROS": Regular price is $36, but buy 3 tickets and that price drops to $30. Buy 4 or more tickets, and pay only $27 per seat. That means any group of four saves $36, and that's a FREE ticket. Online Sales: strawshop.brownpapertickets.com READ MORE AT: www.strawshop.org
