West Campus went to the horse races this afternoon. They placed bets on the horse and then took turns rolling the dice to move their horse. If they got their bet right, they won a coin for Treasure Trove. They’ve already requested this be a weekly event!!

Today is the day YOU will make a difference in the lives of Plano Community Homes' low income aging and disabled residents.

We hope you've chosen to give to Plano Community Homes so we can provide the opportunity for those without computers, laptops, tablets, etc. and who don't have Wi-Fi to be able to connect with family, friends, doctors, and others while they struggle with social isolation during the pandemic. This too will continue long after the pandemic is over.

Our Technology Fund is in need of more funding to make our dreams a reality. Use the link below to give to either our Denton or Plano properties.

Thank you for our support.

Only two more days until North Texas Giving Day.

We hope you will consider giving to Plano Community Homes Technology Fund so we can purchase laptops that residents can sign out and use. Additionally we want to expand the wifi in our buildings so residents have direct access.

2020 was definitely a year of challenges, the most crucial challenge being the need for our residents to stay in touch with loved ones and friends during a pandemic when is wasn't safe to see one another in person.

We saw the need to have technology available to residents who don't have access to computers, laptops, social media, face time, zoom calls, etc.
Experts agree that socialization and meaningful activities significantly make a positive impact in the lives of our elderly population.

We will be raising funds for both Fairoaks, our Denton Campus, and our three campuses in Plano, East, West and Pioneer Place.

Our elders are our link to the past and what better way is there to honor them than on Respect for the Aged Day. It is a Japanese festival celebrated on the third Monday of September of each year. It is a national holiday in Japan on which people celebrate by spending time with their elderly relatives and friends.

5 FACTS ABOUT RESPECT FOR THE AGED DAY

Special gifts for centenarians
Japanese citizens turning 100 years old in the 12 months before this day receive a special silver sake dish on this holiday.

The number of centenarians in Japan is high
Since 1950, Japan's elderly population has been on the rise and is expected to rise to 35.3% by 2040, as per a Japan Today report in 2020.

From silver to silver-plated
The rising population made the silver sake dish too expensive a gift to give, forcing the Japanese government to switch to silver-plated sake dishes.

The current numbers
As of now, there are 80,450 centenarians in Japan.

Their diets have a lot to do with it
A balanced diet is one reason for Japan's high population of centenarians.

National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day, which occurs each year on September 18, might seem like an odd combination for an observance. But it actually makes perfect sense. Thanks to some startling advances in treatment, people with HIV are living longer than ever. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost half of Americans living with HIV are over 50.

​4 IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER ABOUT HIV, AIDS AND AGING
Many older folks are living with HIV
In 2014, an estimated 428,000 people aged 50 and over were living with HIV in the U.S.

​Many people remain undiagnosed
Experts say that about one in seven Americans are HIV-positive but don't know it.

Other problems can arise
​Researchers estimate that more than half of people with HIV also experience HIV-Associated Neurocognitive Disorders (HAND), which can affect motor skills and memory.

​It remains a global epidemic
Worldwide, there are about 37 million people living with HIV.

Today is World Su***de Prevention Day

​5 SOBERING SU***DE FACTS

It's part of a mental health emergency
1 in 15 American adults suffer from depression but the good news is that 80-90% of people respond positively to treatment if depression is correctly diagnosed.

Older people are more likely to die from su***de
Su***de is most common among people between the ages of 45 and 64.

​Men commit su***de more often
Men commit su***de more often than women, but women are more likely to attempt it.

Early detection is key
That's why, as WHO points out, "prevention efforts must be comprehensive and integrated as no single approach alone can make an impact."

The clock is ticking
Just about every 12 minutes someone kills themselves in America.

09/10/2021

WHY WORLD SU***DE PREVENTION DAY IS IMPORTANT

Su***de affects all of us
Many people know somebody who has taken their own life or someone who has lost a friend or family member to su***de. World Su***de Prevention Day is a time to reflect on the value of life and that no matter how bad things seem, there's always hope.

With awareness comes action
One of the main goals of World Su***de Prevention Day is "to increase awareness about suicidal behaviors and how to effectively prevent them," according to WHO. Contact your local su***de prevention hotline if you have a friend who's confided in you about having suicidal thoughts or you see a concerning social media post.

It shines a spotlight on mental health issues
World Su***de Prevention Day is a reminder that society needs consistent and increasing advocacy for mental health resources so that people struggling with mental health disorders can find the help they need. Learn about the warning signs of su***de on the National Su***de Prevention Month website.

Experts agree that socialization and meaningful activities significantly make a positive impact in the lives of our elderly population. Last year during the Pandemic, Plano Community Homes Sponsored Properties realized that we must do more to help our residents in preventing social isolation. Because many of our residents were missing out on visits with family and friends, as well as other social interactions, PCH asked for donations to start a technology fund. Unfortunately, we did not raise enough money to expand wi-fi throughout our buildings or purchase electronic tablets for our residents to borrow.

Providing these services to our low-income Senior adults, who continue to be isolated in many ways, is so important we need to continue raising money for the Technology Fund in 2021.

We believe these activities are essential to our residents to enhance communication and enrich their lives as they stay safe during these times and continue to limit their interactions physically with others. Your gift, whether large or small, will assist in developing this opportunity for inclusion into a new world of social interaction and the introduction to new forms of technology for our residents.

We will be raising funds for both Fairoaks, our Denton Campus, and our three campuses in Plano, East, West and Pioneer Place.

Today starts Early Giving for North Texas Giving Day.

Experts agree that socialization and meaningful activities significantly make a positive impact in the lives of our elderly population.

Today is American Chess Day

Chess helps the brain
A Venezuelan study found an increase in IQ scores of its participants after four months of learning and playing chess. Another study found that games that require participants to use their brains, especially players older in age, help those participants to be less likely to develop dementia. It also enhances problem-solving skills, as players have to maneuver and manage the game and their opponent.

Pull out your chess board, wipe off the dust, find another player and exercise your brain.

Hi Plano Community!! I am needing some help. I am needing to find a new home for one of my exchange students, Lucas, his host family is unable to host him anymore due to unforeseen circumstances, and we are trying to find a family willing to host him in the area! He is 15 years old and currently a junior at Allen High School. He is from Spain and will need a host family before Thanksgiving until June 4th! He's a wonderful student who loves soccer . He is also involved in the Allen High School theater production class. This is a great opportunity for any family (singles, no kids, has kids, elders, empty nesters....) who want to bring some culture into their home while at the same time welcoming a new family member! Lucas will come with his own health insurance and spending money, he just needs a caring family, a bedroom and occasional rides for after school activities. Please PM or email me ([email protected]) if you or someone you know is interested or has any questions. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks so much, Teal Scott, iE Local Coordinator
Wendy the Superhero wants to thank all the Superheros who donated on North Texas Giving Day!! Every dollar is appreciated! We'll post again soon to let everyone know how much was raised for PCH and Fairoaks. Thank you again for all the support!
