One More Way to Make Your Voice Heard 
San Francisco is blessed with many civic Commissions and Councils and they would be stronger and more representative if we as older adults and adults with disabilities were willing to serve. Right now, the Dignity Fund Coalition is working to provide information and answer questions to anyone interested. A particular focus is on the Aging and Adult Services Commission and the Mayor's Disability Council. If you would be interested, contact info@sfdignityfund.org. We will follow up by answering questions, providing you with the application form, and invite you to an upcoming briefing.

Intergenerational Pop-Up Charms Participants
Learn what happened when 15 millennials were paired with 15 perennials (seniors) to discover what they might have in common. The event, organized by Kasley Killam and the World Global Shapers, was billed as an "Intergenerational Pop-up", hosted at Manny's community space in the Mission.

Reducing Isolation through Better Hearing 
The Network for Elders started the 2019 New Year with the Hearing Loss 101 Presentation at their monthly meeting at Dr. George W. Davis Senior Center.   CLC's Vision and Hearing Initiative Program Coordinator, Sherri Sawyer (pictured right with Network for Elders Leader Beverly Taylor) was joined by staff from the Northern California Speech and Hearing Center. They talked about the challenges of hearing loss as part of the aging process. Participants had lots of questions regarding hearing aids and other amplification devices, such as Pocketalkers and new Bluetooth technologies for hearing support.

A recent New York Times article describes two major studies that indicated the clear connection between untreated hearing loss and increased risk of dementia, depression, falls and cardiovascular diseases.
