Do you know what to do if a relative, friend, or neighbor loses consciousness, has chest pain or is choking? So far through classes sponsored by the Foundation, 134 of your fellow Lincoln Hills residents have been trained on how to respond and what to do. Classes include training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the use of the Automatic External Defibrillator (AED), and the performance of the Heimlich maneuver for choking. The course includes training in the resuscitation of adults, children and infants. Many of our residents have grandchildren who may be visiting. Those trained may possibly save a life. A course in basic First Aid is also offered.
If you are interested, there are classes scheduled for: Jun 12, Aug. 21, Sep 12, and Oct. 30. The fees are: $10 for CPR/AED with certification and a manual, $10 for CPR/AED/First Aid without certification or manual, and $20.00 for CPR/AED/First Aid with certification and a manual. Classes are taught by a certified instructor. The cost is supplemented by the Foundation as a public service. CPR training usually costs $70.00 or more.

The Lincoln Hills Foundation cannot be a sponsor of the Resource Connectors (RC) due to certain legal constraints. Unfortunately, some early flyers produced by RC participating agencies listed the Foundation as a sponsor. These flyers were printed before our legal constraints were identified by our attorney. Rather than forcing the participating agencies to go through the expense of re-printing the flyers, we have allowed their distribution.
Some individual members of the Lincoln Hills Foundation Board of Directors are serving in an advisory capacity to the Resource Connectors.
The Foundation’s Grant Committee will consider grant requests from participating RC non-profit agencies to assist area seniors who cannot afford in-home services and/or care management services. Such aid will be consistent with income guidelines established by the Grant Committee.
The Lincoln Hills Foundation is participating in a public awareness campaign designed to inform area seniors about the availability of the RC program. The Foundation will also inform area seniors about other similar resources that might become available in the future.
Multiple Sclerosis Group
Since 2003, the Foundation has provided $199,421.00 in grants to 21 groups that support seniors in the Lincoln Community. Included in this amount are direct grants to 11 local support groups to cover costs for speaker fees, supplies, postage, printing, and other administrative matters. In this way the groups are able to expend their efforts in support and education of their members without having to engage in fund raising. The Foundation provides these grants through donations and fund raising activities.
The mission of the Lincoln Hills Foundation is to promote and fund innovative solutions that will enable senior residents of the Lincoln Community to remain in their homes and enjoy their independent lifestyles. One of the support groups that recently received a grant was the Multiple Sclerosis Group. Pictured below is Foundation President Jerry Johnson presenting a check to Marilyn Sharp, the president of the Multiple Sclerosis Group.
