Older Americans Month 2015: Get into the Act


Older adults are a vital part of our society. Since 1963, communities across the
country have shown their gratitude by celebrating Older Americans Month each
May. The theme of this years celebration is Get into the Act, to focus on how
older adults are taking charge of their health, getting engaged in their communities, and making a positive impact in the lives of others.
The theme also reflects on the 50th anniversary of the Older Americans Act.
President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Older Americans Act into law in July
1965. Since that time, the Act has provided a nationwide aging services network and funding that helps older adults live with dignity in the communities of
their choice for as long as possible. These services include home-delivered and
congregate meals, caregiver support, community-based assistance, preventive
health services, elder abuse prevention, and much more.

Act II
Feel the Energy, Feel the Friendship and
Encouragement. Educate yourself as to what services, activities,
classes, meals and opportunities await you.
Act III Take Charge of yourself. Engage in all
opportunities available to you at Berkeley Senior Centerwe
are your advocate.
Final Act
Your Body, Mind and Spirit will be enhanced
in all positive ways!

May is Older Americans Month


The 2015 Older Americans Month theme isGet into the Act.

By promoting and engaging in activity, wellness, and inclusivity, more Americans than ever before can Get into the Act. While Berkeley Senior Services
provides transportation, In-Home Care/Respite to family caregivers, home delivered meals, and Medicare Counseling to older adults year-round, Older Americans Month offers an opportunity to emphasize how older adults can access
the home- and community-based services they need to live independently in
our community. It is also an occasion to highlight how older adults are engaging
with and making a difference in those communities.
Throughout the month, Berkeley Senior Services will be conducting activities
and providing several opportunities that will empower seniors to remain healthy
and active! For a complete listing of activities, be sure to check out the calendars in this issue or visit our website: www.berkeleyseniorservices.org, or

CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE:


Help Is On the Way in WV

I was looking at the face of death. said


Grace Anne Dorney, wife of Ted Koppel,
former news anchor for CBS. She uttered
these words on being diagnosed in 2001
with a lung condition called Chronic
Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
She was unable to catch her breath even
while standing still.
Grace Anne credits Pulmonary
Rehab for helping her to take back her
life. She became a national advocate for
people suffering with this disease. She
and Ted also have donated generously to
this cause.
Thanks to their generosity in
November 2013, the Grace Anne Dorney
Pulmonary Rehabilitation Center opened
in Dawes, WV at the Cabin Creek Health
Center. When asked why Cabin Creek,
Ted Koppel answered simply Because its
where the need is.
The leading cause of COPD is
smoking, but the disease may develop in
individuals who are exposed to irritants
over a long period of time. It can also
be caused by pollution, chemical fumes,
dust, or second hand smoke.
COPD is the third leading cause of
death in the U.S. West Virginia has one of
the highest rates of COPD in the country.
There is no cure yet for COPD, but
medical treatment and lifestyle changes
learned through a Pulmonary Rehab
program can help you feel better and slow
the progression of COPD.
Quitting smoking or removing the

offending irritants is the first line of


defense against COPD. Taking
prescribed medications, healthy eating,
and exercise follow closely behind.

A recent study published in the
online journal Respirology, reported that
patients with COPD who were more
active had fewer hospitalizations than
patients without a regular walking
routine.
COPD patients in this study who
maintained the highest levels of physical
activity (regular walking between 2-4
miles daily) or comparable physical
activity were hospitalized only half as
often as COPD patients without a regular
exercise program.

time as fitness improves. Build up to 30


minutes, all at one time or in intervals
throughout the day.
Try to exercise most days of the week.
To determine the intensity of exercise,
think about how you feel while exercising.
Make your exercise session feel
somewhat hard, but not hard.
If you use supplemental oxygen, be
sure to use it for exercise. You can help
breathing efficiency using a technique
called pursed lip breathing.
For pursed lip breathing take a deep
breath in through your nose, and exhale
through pursed lips (imagine you are
blowing out a candle). Make exhalation

inhale.

Dr. Venessa Holland, a pulmonologist


at Houstons Methodist Hospital, agreed
that the results of this study confirmed
the benefits of exercise similar to what
her patients have experienced.

If you have COPD, and have not


participated in a Pulmonary
Rehabilitation program, check to see if
one is available to you in your area.
If not, ask your physician or an exercise
professional to recommend a safe activity
for you. The American College of Sports
Medicines website www.exerciseismedicine.org
can help. This website recommends
walking, biking, or swimming.
One should begin slowly, and then
gradually increase the intensity and
duration of the workouts. Start with 5
or 10 minute intervals and increase the
