FROM YOUR COMMUNITY MANAGER
Welcome back Home! We have missed you. We have been busy sprucing up, painting, planting, repairing, replacing and cleaning. We are still in the process of some major upgrades. So please be patient with us since we are at the mercy of the Florida weather as we make our community better one step at a time.

Don’t forget to stop by the office for a cookie or a candy. We do love seeing our residents when they return.

Calling all Veterans. Come have breakfast with the HTA staff on Monday, November 11th. We will be serving pancakes, sausage, milk, juice and coffee. All are welcome, we have a sign-up sheet in the clubhouse. We would love to see you there.

November will surely prove to be busy. Take the time to stop and visit with neighbors and friends. What a great way to start someone’s day.

On another note, we need to reduce the speeding within the community. I know that we are all anxious to get to where we are going, but this does not excuse speeding. Tanglewood’s speed limit is 17 mph or less, and remember that stop signs matter. One accident is too many. Let’s all keep one another safe by driving cautiously and lawfully through the neighborhood.

Also, if walking after dark, please carry a flashlight, and wear light colored clothing that will reflect.

While walking pets, please remember that we have areas for our furry family. Please do not let them stop in someone else’s yard.

Note of concern: Horticulture must be placed at the curb of your home no more than two days prior to pick-up. We have instructions in the office for the process of horticulture and times of pick-up. You can get this in the office.

Thank you for choosing Tanglewood as your home. I look forward to seeing you around the neighborhood.

The only thing that will make you happy is being happy with who you are, and not who people think you are….

Darlene D Bradley

FROM THE ACTIVITIES OFFICE

VETERAN’S DAY BREAKFAST AT MONDAY COFFEE
On behalf of Tanglewood, we’d like to recognize all our residents who have served in the United States military this upcoming Veterans Day.

We want to honor you all as it is your service and sacrifice that has kept our country safe and free. No matter which branch you served in or how long you served, we commend you.

While vocalizing our gratitude to our veterans is a good start, illustrating it through actions is much better. So please, if you are a veteran at Tanglewood, let us honor you, your spirit, your bravery, and your service this Veterans Day. On Monday, November 11, 2019 at 8 am in the Clubhouse, we will be having a pancake breakfast in your honor.

If you’d like, we encourage you to wear your uniform or bring your cover and metals. We’ll begin serving food at 8 am. There will be a sign-up sheet on the credenza for those planning on attending so we can get a count of how many pancakes we will need.

Although this is to honor our Veterans, all Tanglewood residents are invited to attend. We hope to see you all there.

FIRE RING IN THE OUTBACK
We would like to welcome back all of our seasonal residents by kicking off this year with a Fire Ring in the Outback on Wednesday, November 5th, from 5-7 pm.

Rick Arnold will be here to perform for your listening and dancing enjoyment.

We will be lighting up the ring, and providing hot dogs for those who would like to grill their own. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO WEAR YOUR ID BADGE!

Bring sides to share with your friends and a utensil to use to cook your hotdog. We will also have beer, wine, sodas, and water.

All of this provided to you by Hometown America.

THANKSGIVING POTLUCK
Sign up for Thanksgiving Potluck will be on the credenza for those who are participating in the Thanksgiving potluck at the clubhouse on Thanksgiving Day, November 28th, at 2 pm.

RV CLUB CHRISTMAS FOOD DRIVE
Members of the RV Club have been busy behind the scenes for months with planning for the club’s annual Food Drive which will benefit the Heartland Food Bank.

First, a big thank you to everyone who attended this year’s Lip Sync Contest. You are probably still laughing and smiling about some of the entertainment the acts brought to Tanglewood’s stage.

The Food Bank is able to get turkeys, hams, fresh fruits and vegetables either free or at wholesale prices. The money we donate goes much further, and feeds many more people right here in Highlands County. The Food Bank is always in need of community support.

Beginning November 4 – December 9, members of the RV Club will be collecting your donations at Monday Morning Coffee. Your donations may be cash or check, payable to Heartland Food Bank.

Every one who donates will be entered in a special drawing. Names will be drawn at Monday Coffee on December 16. Six folks will be presented with a gift card from one of Sebring’s local restaurants which have been donated by Alan Holmes. You do not have to be present to win.

Next up is the Annual Craft Fair on Saturday, November 9. If you are new to Tanglewood, you are not going to want to miss this busy and fun morning with your neighbors and friends. The RV Club will be in their usual spot selling their baked goods.

Last year’s big hit, Raffle Baskets, is making a return. Club members have donated items from their home states or their summer travels to be raffled off.

Baskets from Ohio, Maine, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Michigan, Cape Cod, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, New Jersey, Delaware, and one from Bermuda will be on display.

All proceeds from the RV Club table go to the Food Bank.

Bathroom Safety: Are You Taking the Necessary Precautions?
By: Ingra Gardner, MA
The bathroom is the most frequented room of the house. With this increased usage come increased risks. A report by the Consumer Product Safety Commission states that, in the United States, an average of 370 people across all age cohorts suffer from a bathtub or shower related injury daily. A study conducted by the National Institute of Aging (NIA) found that more than one in three seniors over the age of 65 fall annually, and an alarming 80% of these falls are in the bathroom. Slips, falls and hot-water burns account for the prime reasons for accidents in the bathroom, and the second leading cause of accidental death and disability.

All members of our families are at risk, however, people with limited mobility need to be extra cautious. Over 75% of slip and fall deaths happen to older adults over the age of 65.

The bathroom proves to be extremely dangerous for seniors if it is not modified. The increased need for bathroom safety measures is exacerbated by issues including polypharmacy, medication side effects, reduced physical ability, and decreased vision.

Knowing how to get in and out of tubs and showers properly and equipping homes with necessary safety precautions can reduce senior falls, keep them out of the emergency room, and possibly extend their life.

According to research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1.6 million older adults seek emergency care each year for fall-related injuries, fractures or head trauma. In addition to potentially losing their independence, seniors 65 years old and up have a 25 percent chance of dying within six months to a year if they fall and break a hip.

One of the most effective ways to preserve balance is to stay active with an exercise regimen. Ask your doctor about exercises designed to improve balance, stability and overall mobility, such as moderate yoga or an evidence-based fall prevention program.

An additional preventative method recommended by physicians is installing assistive devices and equipment in the bathroom. For example, transfer benches, shower stools, flexible shower wands/ shower heads, and grab bars are relatively inexpensive tools which can increase overall safety.

Bathroom safety is important at any age. However, the need to be proactive increases with age. A candid discussion with your primary physician is a great avenue to learn more. Physicians may make referrals to Occupational Therapists, who can help develop individualized fall prevention strategies in the home.

To learn more about bathroom fall prevention strategies and tips, contact Ingra Gardner.

Ingra Gardner is the Executive Director of NU-HOPE Elder Care Services and can be contacted at (863) 382-2134 or gardneri@nuhope.org
