Shredding Event and Medication Disposal May 5th

Join us on Saturday, May 5, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. when Troy Township will host its next semi-annual shredding and medication disposal event. This event will take place simultaneously at 25448 Seil Road in Shorewood. Troy Township residents can bring their personal papers and documents to the township parking lot on the west side of the township offices and community center to be shredded onsite by ShredX. Each resident must show proof of township residency and is allowed to have two letter size file or copy paper boxes shredded.

Troy Township is proud to once again partner with the Shorewood Police Department and will be offering medication disposal along with the shredding event. Township residents can bring their unneeded medication so that it can be disposed of properly.  Make sure to bring only residentially generated medication items. No medications from businesses or doctor’s offices will be accepted. Use a permanent marker to black out your name or personal information on the label.

Needles appropriately contained within AN approved sharps container will now be accepted at the event!

 Alden Estates of Shorewood Short-Term Rehabilitation Center Donates AED to Troy Township Community Center -Township Supervisor Joseph D. Baltz is pleased to announce the donation of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) by Alden Estates of Shorewood to the Troy Township Community Center. Alden Estates of Shorewood is a short-term rehabilitation center. 
                        
AEDs are easy-to-use devices that can restore a regular heartbeat to someone undergoing cardiac arrest or other life-threatening cardiac conditions. Because time is of the essence when someone is having a cardiac emergency, AEDs help save thousands of lives each year. 

“Our Community Center is used almost daily and we are excited to be able to add this safety feature for our visitors; at no cost to our local tax payers. We are extremely grateful to Alden Estates of Shorewood for this generous donation,” said Supervisor Baltz. 

Alden Estates of Shorewood also purchased a special case for the AED, which will be placed on a wall at the Township Community Center. 
“We’re pleased to be able to support Troy Township in creating a safe and healthful environment for those visiting the Community Center,” said Annette Borcky, RN, administrator at Alden Estates of Shorewood. “community centers are an important way of keeping people engaged, especially seniors, which is an essential aspect to staying healthy as we age.” 

Alden Estates of Shorewood sponsored a lunch for the Troy Township Seniors on Wednesday, August 19th and unveiled the new piece of equipment. 

Alden Estates of Shorewood is a five-star facility offering transitional care, short-term rehabilitation and post-acute services throughout the southwestern suburbs.

A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls

 

Have you turned down a chance to go out with family or friends because you were concerned about falling?  Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall?  If so, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program for you.

Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself.  People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater.  Many older adults also experience increased isolation and depression when they limit their interactions with family and friends.  A Matter of Balance can help people improve their quality of life and remain independent.

A Matter of Balance is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Participants learn to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.

A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is an eight week course and is offered by a sponsorship from and a partnership between the Troy Fire Protection District and Troy Township. Classes will be held at the Troy Township Community Center located at 25448 Seil Road in Shorewood. The eight week course is scheduled to be held on September 15, 22, and 29; October 6, 13, and 20; and November 3 and 10. Each class will be 2 hours each, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am.  The instructors are from the Troy Fire Protection District and Troy Township. This course is FREE to all Troy Township residents. A workbook is provided and refreshments are served.

Please call 815-744-1963 to register or for more information.
