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.

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.
