Effective Communication Workshop | Chico | July 23

Effective Communication Strategies – FREE WORKSHOP -- presented by Alzheimer's Association - North Valley Area
Tuesday, July 23, 2019 | 3:30 PM—5:30 PM | Chico Library, 1108 Sherman Avenue Chico, CA 95926 Registration is required.


An education program presented by the Alzheimer’s Association Communication is more than just talking and listening — it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, and body language. As the disease progresses, individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias lose the ability to use words, but families can find new ways to connect.

Join us to explore how communication changes when someone is living with Alzheimer’s, learn how to interpret the verbal and behavioral communication, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease. Please contact Kindra at 530.895.9661 kadcock@alz.org Visit http://alz.org/CRF to explore additional education programs in your area.

Relay For Life -Chico | Sept 21

DeGarmo Park- 199 Leora Court, Chico | 10am-10pm

 

Opening Ceremony

Time to get started. We kick off the event by honoring everyone who's been affected by cancer and everyone who has contributed to the success of this year's Relay season.

 

Survivor/Caregiver Walk
Survivors and Caregivers are the heart and soul of Relay For Life events. We honor their strength and courage with every step they take. It doesn't matter if you were diagnosed 10 days ago or 10 years ago, you can walk while everyone gathers together to cheer you on.

 

Luminaria Ceremony
During this ceremony we represent everyone touched by cancer with a Luminaria. Each light represents a life—a life taken by cancer, a survivor of cancer, or a support for a person still fighting the disease. It's a powerful demonstration that gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers comfort and hope.

 

Closing Ceremony
Our closing ceremony is the time to commit to take action and help lead the fight for a world free from cancer. It's a time to celebrate what we've accomplished together and a time to unify for the work that needs to be done moving forward.

 

MORE INFO | Go register early and get ready for a great fundraising season.

Become a CASA Volunteer!

NVCSS CASA will be holding two CASA training sessions in early 2018.
Training in Shasta County [Redding] begins on Wednesday, January 10 and will be held in the CASA Center at NVCSS at 2400 Washington Avenue.
Butte County training [Chico] begins on Thursday, February 1 and will take place at
our office in Chico.


CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. CASA volunteers are definitely superheroes for the work they do for these children!

Download the volunteer application by visiting the NVCSS website: http://www.nvcss.org/casa
Application deadline for Shasta’s training is January 4; Butte’s deadline is January 27.

Northern California Residents Disaster Assistance

Residents of Butte, Lake, Mendocino and Yuba who suffered damage or losses from the devastating fires that began October 8, 2017 and continue to burn, can now register for disaster assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), if they are able to do so.
The amendment to the presidential disaster declaration of October 10, 2017 now makes federal assistance available to eligible individuals and business owners in a total of six northern California counties: Butte, Lake, Napa, Mendocino, Sonoma and Yuba.
Survivors who primarily reside in one of the six designated counties can apply online at DisasterAssistance.gov or by phone at 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585. Applicants who use 711 or Video Relay Service may call 800-621-3362. The toll-free numbers are open 7am to 10pm seven days a week.
Applicants will be asked for the following information:
•    Social Security number
•    Address of the damaged primary residence
•    Description of the damage
•    Information about insurance coverage
•    A current contact telephone number
•    An address where they can receive mail
•    Bank account and routing numbers for direct deposit of funds
Disaster assistance for homeowners and renters may include grants to help pay for:
•    Temporary housing
•    Essential home repairs
•    Uninsured and underinsured personal property losses
•    Other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance.


Low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are available for businesses of all sizes, private non-profit organizations, homeowners and renters. Disaster loans cover losses not fully compensated by insurance or other recoveries.


FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits.
Registering with FEMA is required for federal aid, even if a survivor has registered with another disaster-relief organization, such as the American Red Cross.
Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled.
For more information on California recovery, visit the disaster web page at www.fema.gov/disaster/4344 ,   Twitter at https://www.twitter.com/femaregion9 and the CalOES website, http://www.caloes.ca.gov/

Flu Season & Vaccination Locations BCPH

Lab Confirmed Flu Cases Mark The Start of Flu Season in Butte County | Butte County Public Health

Flu activity is on the rise in Butte County with more than 16 lab confirmed flu cases reported by local healthcare providers. Since December 1st, severe flu cases have led to four hospitalizations in Butte County. The flu vaccine is still available at many pharmacies and clinics.
Flu season typically peaks in January or February and can last as late as May. For millions of people each year, symptoms of flu illness can vary from mild to severe, including: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle aches, and fatigue. Severe flu complications can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Flu viruses are constantly changing from one season to the next. Vaccines released for this year’s flu are not as well matched as vaccines in the past, but are still an important step in protecting you and your loved ones and may reduce the severity of flu symptoms.
http://flushot.healthmap.org

In addition to getting vaccinated, you and your family can help prevent spreading the flu by:
- Avoiding close contact with sick people
- Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze
- Washing your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- NOT touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Staying home from work or school if you have flu like symptoms

 

A free flu vaccination clinic will be offered by the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) on Tuesday, January 27, from 2:00-4:00pm at 202 Mira Loma Drive in Oroville.
No appointments are necessary. Vaccines are available for people 6 months of age and older, including pregnant women. Both the flu shot and nasal spray vaccine (FluMist) will be available.
