Helping Elder Abuse Victims

Cedar Village is proud to be the home of the Shalom Center for Elder Abuse Prevention.   The Shalom Center provides a safe haven for individuals over the age of 65 who are victims of abuse, including a full range of health care and supportive services and a coordinated system of care.

While victims are living at Cedar Village in a safe environment, they enjoy the many programs and activities that enrich the lives of all of the residents. They participate in art, music, and exercise classes. They enjoy having lunch in the deli with their new friends, and they especially like attending stimulating educational programs.

“I can’t thank you enough for providing my mom a place to stay while she figured out what to do next. My mom was embarrassed by what happened to her and she didn’t know where to go. You provided her that place. Thank you,” said daughter of a victim of elder abuse.

Volunteers provide comfort to Hospice individuals

When Penny K. moved to Cincinnati, Ohio thirty years ago, she knew that she wanted to volunteer in her community.  She took a class to learn about volunteer opportunities and learned about Hospice.  At that time, there were a lot of young people who were in Hospice and Penny knew that she could help make a difference.

 It was then that Penny began providing comfort to those at the end of their life.  She sat with them, listened to their stories and became a witness to their experience.  Today, Penny volunteers at Cedar Village Retirement Community in the Hospice Department and she finds the work rewarding.

“At the end of life, hospice is the only way to go.  It is so humane,” said Penny.  “Having respect for those who are dying is very important.”

Recently, Penny brought in her gardening magazines to share with some of the residents she visits.  One of the residents showed interest in the magazine and that was exciting to Penny. Penny believes that everyone is relevant and should be treated that way.

“I love working with everyone and I love the interaction here with people.”

A New Semester is Here!

 

In February, Cedar Village began our 13th semester of our art program for individuals with dementia, Opening Minds Through Art.  Close to 40 residents are paired one on one with community volunteers and college students from the University of Cincinnati as well as from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.  Opening Minds Through Art is a program established by the Scripps Gerontology Center at Miami University.

 

It is always so meaningful to observe the sessions which take place on Thursday mornings.  The amazing artists create beautiful pieces of art and are able to communicate through their artwork.  At the last session, Sarah was so proud of the painting she created and was thrilled to be able to share it with her volunteer partner.  Your generous gift will help artists like Sarah express themselves in a meaningful way.
