December 2018 Newsletter

IMG_2976For the first time since last winter, our valley put on it’s gorgeous white coat. Although I don’t enjoy driving in, or shoveling snow, I do love the fresh fallen appearance of it. Each season brings its own kind of beauty and fun activities. We used to take great pleasure in playing in the cold, fluffy, white stuff with snowmobiles or sleds. Building forts and snowmen were challenging in an amusing and entertaining way. With physical limitations, we adore the snow from the warmth of indoors as we watch from our windows as it quietly, gracefully falls. Now, sitting by the fireplace, sipping hot cocoa, reading or watching a movie has become our favorite winter activity.  

As nice and cozy as it is inside, December is filled with social events as we celebrate Christmas and the end of the year. So, we will venture out in the cold to be warmed by our association with family and friends. We benefit and enjoy meeting with others in similar circumstances. We appreciate several organizations around the Salt Lake Valley which give us the opportunity to connect with others who also endure the effects of brain injury and epilepsy, which are two health issues we deal with. For this reason, I’ve gathered information on this month’s support groups and therapy services offered in our surrounding area. If you live outside of this region, or are affected by another kind of condition, I encourage you to look for support groups near you relating to your health issues. Learning from and encouraging others in like situation makes the journey easier.

In case it’s impossible for you to get out, or you don’t live in this area, I’ve also included links to useful and inspiring websites.

November 2018 Newsletter

Welcome.Oct

The vibrant colors of red, yellow and orange cover our yards and the streets of our valley right now. A gorgeous sight saved only for this time of year. The falling leaves indicate this beautiful season is coming to an end, which saddens me and keeps me busy sweeping or raking. Since I wish to hang onto those stunning leaves as-long-as possible, it makes disposing the multicolored foliage a challenging task. I love autumn and especially the month of November because it encourages gratitude and reminds me of all my many blessings. The days pass too fast. By the looks of the stores, Thanksgiving is skipped as they jump from Halloween right into Christmas. I’d like to slow down November and treasure this Thanksgiving season to the very end. I suppose I’ll be busy raking and clearing the yard of hoses, flowers, and other annual plants until the first snow flies, which brings a clean, fresh look to the outdoors. Another kind of beauty. Until the blanket of white reaches the valley, I’ll be getting ready for it, savoring the crunchy sound of dried leaves under my feet, reminding me it’s November and all the things I am thankful for.

We appreciate several organizations around the Salt Lake Valley which give us the opportunity to take a break from our busy lives to connect with others who also endure the effects of brain injury and epilepsy, which are two health issues we deal with. We benefit and enjoy meeting with others in similar circumstances. For this reason I’ve gathered information on this month’s support groups and therapy services offered in our surrounding area.

The effects of brain injury can be complicated and may cause feelings of isolation. Associating with others in similar circumstances can be refreshing. For this reason I’ve gathered information on this month’s support groups and therapy services offered in the Salt Lake Valley. I also included notes from last month’s meetings in case you missed it. Please check out the upcoming events and mark your calendar for the BIAU Annual Conference. Also included are links to useful websites.

WAS_40yrs_websiteSURVIVORS AND CAREGIVERS EDUCATION MEETING NOTES

Intermountain Medical Center 5171 S, Cottonwood St., Bldg. 1, Murray, UT  84107

Jake at Wasatch Adaptive Sports hosted our annual survivor’s and caregiver’s summer picnic, so this month we met at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort. We enjoyed a wonderful evening in the cooler temperatures of the beautiful mountains of Little Cottonwood Canyon on Thursday, July 20, 2017. All in attendance were refreshed by the smell of pine trees and clean mountain air. We ate sandwiches and a variety of side dishes, which were brought by those in attendance. A wheelchair accessible walk and/or ride in a tram up to the top of the mountain was available for those interested. Some chose to stay and visit in the picnic area. Thanks Wasatch Adaptive Sports for a wonderful evening!

Check out their website for programs, http://wasatchadaptivesports.org

“Why Adaptive Recreation? Regular physical activity is essential for the maintenance of normal muscle strength, flexibility, and joint structure and function and may slow the functional decline often associated with disabling conditions. Adequate levels of muscular strength and endurance are associated with increased bone mass, reduction in injury from falls, and an increased ability to complete daily activities. The primary goals for increasing physical activity in individuals with disabilities are to reverse secondary effects of impaired mobility, optimize physical functioning, and enhance overall well-being.”
