PEACEFUL MINDS MASSAGE THERAPY AND BODYWORK

OF MASSAGE THERAPY TO COMMUNITY

(Westborough, MA) Ė Shannon McGrew, a member of the American Massage Therapy Association TM (AMTA), began Peaceful Minds Massage Therapy in August of 2006 in Southborough, MA and is now bringing her practice to the community of Westborough to offer the therapeutic benefits of massage therapy.

Alzheimer's Update

May 2, 2008 - by Linda Hubley -For those new to the Southborough News, I have been writing about my mom and her fight with Alzheimer's.  For my readers that have sent emails or stopped me on the street to ask how my mom is, she has not been doing very well these last few weeks. In January of this year Mom moved in with my sister and we had at home day care available several hours a day while my sister worked. Recently mom took a turn for the worst and ended up in the hospital and then transferred to a nursing home. She is back at the hospital now. The disease has rapidly taken her from us. Mom rarely knows who we are, rambles incoherently, and shows all the classic symptoms of the last stages of Alzheimerís. She doesnít smile any longer, words are scrambled, she has aggressive outbursts, she can barely walk without assistance and if she does my sister calls it like her feet are glued to the floor. Mom can no longer read or write. They are trying to get some balance on drugs to make her comfortable. We have been told it is only a matter of time before we lose mom forever. Mom would never want to live like she is now. She would never have wanted her children to go through watching her live like this but we do as we love mom and would never leave her until she leaves us. (Mom always proud of her Scot heritage showing off the kilts with a granddaughter).

Mom is only 76; we started noticing some abnormal behaviors about five years ago. They were small but as the years passed became much more noticeable until the last year where she really began her decline. Mom began making several calls a day to us and told the same stories over and over. We would find her crying over her checkbook because she couldnít do the numbers anymore. Soon the radio, television and computer she would unplug and lose the time of day or the events of the day. Little by little life started to escape her and the wanderings began. Many Alzheimerís patients wander and this behavior really rattled us to start looking for an alternative housing arrangement for mom.

Momís older brother and sister both passed away last year. Mom and her sister were very close and when her sister passed away in September it seemed to affect mom very hard. We mark the summer of 2007 as the year Alzheimerís struck my mother like lightening. Even the doctors have been surprised as how rapidly the disease has taken mom. In a way the speed can be good but the disease is still slow for us as we sit and watch mom waste away to a shell of a person we once knew. I began to cry at the nursing home during one of momís outbursts. One of the counselors came over to my sister and I and talked about mom and the disease and told us she tells families that they have two momís, the one they knew and the one they have now. It makes sense when you think about it.

As we battle the disease as a family, my siblings and I take different approaches on how to handle itís affects on us. We pray that we wonít inherit this disease. My therapy from this disease is to help get the word out that Alzheimerís not only affects the patient but everyone involved from the caregiver, family members, medical staff and more. It steadily burns out so many bright candles at different stages and ages. Through the Southborough News I am able to express my inner feelings of the disease and to bring attention to Alzheimerís patients and their plight. It is a way to let people know about fundraisers and news on the battlefront of Alzheimerís.

I know that at times I may have missed an event, meeting or a photo opportunity that could have been on the Southborough News but I am sure you will understand family is number one. If you have an event or activity Iíve missed and have a photo or press release you would love to share, you are welcome to send it along to the Southborough News. Thank you to everyone that has asked or sent emails to me about mom. Love you mom!

CSX Railroad

May 1, 2008 - A tank car loaded with Carbon Dioxide Refrigerated Liquid sits on track one westbound on the CSX dual tracks.  The freight train was stopped along the track from Westborough all the way back toward the Southborough MBTA Station due to malfunctioning brakes.  Tank cars and box cars oftentimes carry volatile liquids and materials.  This is one reason Southborough citizens should always have an emergency kit for both humans and pets available at the ready.  If for some reason there is an accident on the rails in town, residents most likely will be asked to evacuate in a hurry.  Southborough is also forming a CERT team for residents to help assist with various operations in town during emergencies.  For more information on the CERT program click www.southboroughfire.org

May 1, 2008 - Choice Car Wash will donate to the Southborough Baseball/Softball program $1.00 for every car wash that participates in the program. The fundraiser will run through May 31, 2008. To have your $1.00 earmarked for the Southborough Baseball/Softball program enter the code 12348 at the kiosk upon entering the car wash. 

 

The Senior High Youth Group of Pilgrim Congregational Church, Southborough
is holding a Yard Sale on Saturday, May 3, 2008 from 8am-12noon at the

New Sign letters

April 30, 2008 - The wood letters that hung on the front of the fire station were feeling the effects of 30 years of weather and were in dire need ore replacement.

Lt. James Peltier contacted Assabet Valley High School to see if they could make new letters for the station. The students, working with a new cutter and aluminum cut out letters from a pattern provided by myself. They then welded the letters to a piece of aluminum angle iron for mounting.

By using the talent from Assabet, the Department only had to purchase the aluminum stock, thus saving the Town hundreds of $$$s.

Attached are a couple of pictures of the members of Group 1 installing the letters (FF Jason Neal and David Cobb).

River Plants

Brush Fire

April 27, 2008 - Firefighters pack hose after extinguishing a brush fire in the back yard of a Deerfoot Road home yesterday.

Brush Burning Permits

April 27, 2008 - Brush burning season comes to a close May 1, 2008.  For much of last week the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation prohibited open burning due to the dry conditions.  This weekend those rules were relaxed to let residents burn remaining brush piles.  A permit needs to be obtained annually from the Southborough Fire Department and called in for each day of burning between the hours of 9:00 AM and 12 Noon.  Fires are allowed only between the hours of 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM.  Permits are $10.00 (no fee for residents 65 years of age and older). Several brush pile permits were revoked this weekend for out of control, too large of piles or too close to buildings and the burning of construction materials which is not allowed.  No leaves or grass shall be burned.  The Southborough DPW has a trailer available for leaves and grass.
