Free NAMI Peer-to-Peer Education Course begins Monday August 11

One of NAMI’s Signature programs, Peer to Peer, a 10-week educational program to enhance mental health recovery, will start on Monday, August 11 through October 20, from 110AM to 1PM at the Upcountry Community Center, Pine Grove. This program is for individuals living with mental illness and is taught by NAMI-trained mentors who are well along in recovery. Goals are to provide education about mental illness, emotional and practical support, independent problem solving and relapse prevention.

This is the seventh time NAMI Amador has been able to offer the program, so many people have benefitted from learning that recovery is possible. The course will be taught by two experienced mentors (teachers). The workbooks that every participant is given are new and updated this year with the latest information from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM V).

As with all services of NAMI Amador, the course is free to the public. Mental Health Services Act funding is provided by Amador County Behavioral Health Department. All class sessions are confidential.

Each week builds upon the last, offering a variety of tools with which to better understand and manage an individual life. Thus, attendance is expected at each session. Contact 223-1485, X266 to learn more or to leave a message to sign up.

NAMI Amador is Amador County’s chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and is a volunteer non-profit public charity serving people with mental illness, their families and other loved ones. More information is available at www.facebook.com/NAMIAmador

Sutter Amador Hospital Supports Amador Lifeline

Donation funds in-home communicator equipment for medical emergency response.

Jackson, Calif. – For 33 years, Amador Lifeline has helped seniors and others with disabilities, chronic illnesses, in rehabilitation or on Hospice live independently in their homes by offering medical emergency response at the touch of a button. The not-for-profit program recently received a $2,800 investment from Sutter Amador Hospital to fund the upgrade of communicator equipment that is used in clients’ homes.
“Lifeline allows individuals to remain in their homes and gives them and their families peace of mind knowing that help is available 24 hours a day,” says Virginia Manner, Amador Lifeline supervisor.

The Lifeline system uses a two-way voice communicator and waterproof personal help button that can be worn as a necklace or wristband. In the event of an emergency at home, the wearer presses the button, sending a signal to the Lifeline Response Center dispatcher. The dispatcher evaluates the urgency of the situation and calls either a responder listed on the individual’s care plan or emergency medical personnel when needed.

Sutter Amador Hospital’s community partnership and support will fund the purchase of five two-way communicator units, which will replace aging units that can no longer be repaired. In addition, Lifeline has introduced a new wireless solution called HomeSafe for those who do not have a home phone line. The community investment will also support the purchase of one HomeSafe wireless communicator.

“We value the work of Amador Lifeline and the connections they support and maintain throughout our community,” said Sutter Amador Hospital CEO Anne Platt. “Our partnership with them helps extend the reach of health care.”

Amador Lifeline serves between 235 – 240 clients a month, most of whom are seniors. Manner says the majority of calls to Lifeline are related to falls in the home. Without immediate help after a fall, elderly individuals may suffer pain, emotional distress, or secondary medical problems like dehydration, pneumonia, renal failure and pressure ulcers. The program is invaluable in helping community members live safely at home and preventing hospitalizations.

Lifeline regularly partners with Sutter Amador Hospital and other community organizations to let seniors know about the service.  Medical alert scams are at an epidemic level nationally, and locally, many have also fallen prey to these scams.  Staffed by two professionals and 25 volunteers, Amador Lifeline is the only local, not-for-profit program providing service each day to keep the community’s most vulnerable residents living safe and secure in their own homes.

Sutter Amador Hospital is affiliated with Sutter Health, a not-for-profit, community-based health system located throughout Northern California. For more information about Sutter Amador Hospital, visit www.sutteramador.org.

Sutter Amador Hospital Celebrates Emergency Department Expansion

Jackson, Calif. – Officials from the City of Jackson and the Amador County Board of Supervisors, as well as donors and leaders and medical staff from Sutter Amador Hospital, ceremoniously cut a ribbon in front of the Emergency Department marking the completion of the expanded 9,115-square foot, $7.3 million Emergency Department.
The newly expanded Emergency Department is designed with patients in mind. Focusing on convenience and access, the department now has 14 private treatment rooms to accommodate a growing number of patients – all equipped with the latest computer-based monitoring system.  In addition, the comfort of patients and their family members has been addressed with a new covered entrance and expanded lobby.
“After three years of hard work and commitment, our vision to expand much-needed emergency services to our community is now completed,” said Anne Platt, CEO of Sutter Amador Hospital. “I am grateful to the staff, physicians, community members, donors and many others who helped turn our vision into reality. This was truly a team effort.”
More than $1.15 million of the total cost of the Emergency Department expansion came from the generosity of local donors, including the Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwuk Indians, Sutter Amador Hospital Auxiliary, Valley Emergency Physicians and Armenio and Mary Lou D’Agostini. All gifts, regardless of their size, were essential to the success of this expansion.
“I’m very excited about the completion of our emergency department expansion because I know what it means for our patients and for those of us caring for patients,” said Paul Beatty, M.D., Medical Director of the Emergency Department. “This project has accomplished more than improved access and reduced wait times. It is a testament of our commitment to put patients first and allows us to continue to have the privilege to care for hundreds of families now and for future generations.”
Sutter Amador Hospital became affiliated with Sutter Health in 1991.  Since then, Sutter has continued its commitment to delivering personalized care through its not-for-profit mission within the community. As an entire network, Sutter Health places millions of dollars back into its communities each year. Through these investments and partnerships, Sutter Health is caring for people without health insurance, improving health care facilities and adding vital programs and services. In Amador County alone, Sutter Health provided nearly $5 million in charity care in 2013.
“Sutter Amador Hospital has been a long-term partner to our entire county for years,” said Jackson Mayor Pat Crew. “We are pleased to continue our collaboration with them so our residents may continue to access health care locally.”
Sutter Amador Hospital is affiliated with Sutter Health, a not-for-profit, community-based health system located throughout Northern California. For more information about Sutter Amador Hospital, visit www.sutteramador.org.
