Todd Barth Whether we are ready or like it, the

holiday season is upon us. For many

seniors the holiday season is a time

of loneliness, BUT not on our watch!

Home Instead Senior Care organizations

across America will be rolling out “Be a

Santa To a Senior” program.

The objective of Home Instead Senior

Care’s® Be a Santa to a Senior® program

is to give back to local communities

by providing gifts and holiday cheer

to seniors. It’s an opportunity to touch

the lives of seniors in your community

who generally don’t have family around

during the holidays and aren’t going to

receive gifts. Ultimately, the objective is

to positively impact the lives of seniors

in your community.

The Hillsboro Home Instead Senior

Care office partners with local Meals

On Wheels and retail stores in Western

Washington County and Columbia

County to provide this opportunity of

giving. It is such a blessing to see those

smiling eyes when they receive that

special gift.

For more information about

this program go to: www.

beasantatoasenior.com/

This year Christmas wreaths will be

hung at the following retail outlets on

November 22, 2016:

Todd Barth It’s not always easy to understand the

physical limitations that could make

home a virtual minefield for an aging

parent. Sensory changes that come with

age often affect an older adult’s lifestyle

as well. It’s a domino effect that might

make a senior vulnerable to safety

issues in the home.

Consider yourself in your elder loves

one’s shoes. As time goes on, the effects

of aging could impact all senses.

Sight: By the time someone is 60, pupils

decrease to about one-third the

size they were at age 20. Add to that

aging-related eye conditions such as

cataracts and macular degeneration

for instance, that could make it more

difficult to see a throw rug, safely

use a knife to cut an apple or take the

proper dose of medication.

Taste: We start out with about 9,000

taste buds. They decrease in both

number and mass with aging.

Smell: Sense of smell can diminish,

especially after age 70, because of loss

of nerve endings and less mucus in

the nose.

Touch: Decreased blood flow to nerve

endings as we age reduces the sense

of pain and temperature and makes it

easier to drop things.

Hearing: Our ears control hearing and

sense of balance, both of which can be

compromised as we age.

Counteract the effects of aging by

being proactive and take a least one day

each year to perform a safety check of

their loved one’s home. As Todd Barth,

owner of Home Instead Senior Care of

Hillsboro says, “Observing the safety

hazards in a senior’s home is one thing.

Living with them is another. Our goal

is to help the whole family understand

how to make a home safe allowing the

entire family to have peace of mind.”

November is National Dia­betes Awareness Month, and here at Maple Street Clinic, we are committed to helping prevent and treat this increas­ingly common chronic disease.

Diabetes is a chronic con­dition that affects the body’s ability to use the energy found in food. The body converts the food into a form of sugar called glucose which cells use as fuel. The cells need insulin to take in the glucose and use it for en­ergy. With diabetes, the body doesn’t make enough insulin, doesn’t use it in the right way, or both.

There are two types of dia­betes. Type 1(total lack of insu­lin) cannot be prevented, but it is important that it is managed appropriately. Type 2(body produces little insulin or inef­fectively uses insulin) may be prevented or delayed by living a healthy lifestyle, which in­cluded regular exercise and a sensible diet. Some of the risk factors for diabetes are a fam­ily history of diabetes, being overweight, high blood pres­sure, a sedentary lifestyle and age. A simple screening test can tell if a patient is at risk for diabetes.

Research continues and there have been many new treatments for diabetes in the last few years which may make the condition easier to manage.

To help ease the impact dia­betes or another chronic con­dition might have on your life and to help you enjoy a higher quality of life, we offer com­prehensive and expert medi­cal care with compassion. Our physicians, physician assis­tants, and staff have extensive training and provide support, treatment and management of diabetes. For a screening or to help manage your condition, call Maple Street Clinic and make an appointment today.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is especially true with oral health. Your oral hygiene habits play an important role in maintaining a healthy smile. If you’re not brushing, flossing, and rinsing every day, you’re jeopardizing the well-being of your teeth and gums, and possibly making yourself more vulnerable to systemic health issues such as heart disease and strokes.

Regular scheduled checkups also help prevent dental problems. At every visit our dentists give each patient a thorough exam which includes diagnostic x-rays, oral cancer screening, gum disease diagnosis, tooth decay examination and they survey existing restorations.

A professional cleaning is an important part of your scheduled dental care. Our registered dental hygienists will remove tartar above and below the gum line, eliminate plaque and polish your teeth.

Sore, swollen, bleeding gums? With their periodontal therapy, The Dentists at Orenco Station can restore health to your gums and protect your oral well-being.

At our Hillsboro office, Drs. Brandon and Malinda Kearbey can assess your bite to determine if you have any temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems. No matter what kind of TMJ disorder you have, it can be treated—typically with a customized dental device.

Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey provide your family with excellent preventative care in Hillsboro. They understand the special needs and expectations of families and professionals. The Dentists at Orenco Station also serve the communities of Forest Grove, Beaverton, Cornelius, and Rock Creek. We invite you to make your appointment now

Now that the stresses and emotions of the election season are behind us (and I don’t know a single person who is not grateful for that), it is time to remember our own gratitude for the freedoms we enjoy. While each of us has our own personal way to give back to the communities we live in, many people are not aware of Oregon’s Day of Giving which is just around the corner on Tuesday, November 29th. Many of our non-profit friends are registered on the www.oregoniansgive.org website and are ready to receive your donation. So while you fret over what to buy Grandma for Christmas, or what gift to give your neighbor, child, husband, or friend, consider first a donation to the hard working non-profits in your community. These are the services that provide shelter for the homeless, support to families facing crisis, tender companionship to the elderly, or childcare for single parents, to name just a few.

As a local community bank, Premier Community Bank supports over 100 local non-profit organizations in a variety of ways. From our employees who volunteer countless hours, banking services especially designed for our non-profit partners, to cash and in-kind giving, we are grateful to be able to give to the communities and neighborhoods where we do business.

So this next Tuesday, think about a gift to your favorite non-profit and then enjoy the holiday season with your family and friends.

Bob Ekblad, EVP and Chief Operating OfficerThis coming November,

Oregon residents will vote

on a mega tax proposal,

Measure 97, formerly known

as Initiative Petition (IP)

28. In fact, this is one of

the biggest proposed tax

increases in Oregon’s history.

It is estimated to generate

$3.0 billion annually for the

state to spend on education,

health care, and senior

services; at least initially,

but future Legislatures may

choose to allocate these funds

differently.

The new tax would be 2.5%

on the gross Oregon sales for

companies headquartered

or doing business in Oregon

on amounts over $25

million. This tax would be

on gross business revenues,

regardless of a company’s

profitability. And for many

products sold in Oregon, this

new tax may be layered upon

each step of the production

or distribution process;

therefore many items may

be taxed multiple times.

Certainly most of these

companies cannot bear such

a significant tax burden on

their own. So of course, this

tax will be passed onto their

customers, which will get

passed onto their customers,

and ultimately to you and

me as consumers. In fact,

a study by the nonpartisan

Legislative Revenue Office

estimates that ultimately

this tax will cost the average

Oregon household over $600

a year through higher prices

on many of our household

staples. So when November

rolls around, make sure to

give this tax-measure its due

consideration before casting

your vote!

Brandon & Malinda Kearbey If you are an adult with

advances gum disease or have lost

teeth due to trauma, extractions

or severe decay, you are not alone.

At the Hillsboro office of Drs.

Brandon and Malinda Kearbey, we

recommend dental implants.

Dental implants are a wonderful

solution for replacing missing

teeth. Those gaps in your smile

can have a negative impact on

your appearance and your oral

health. People who have missing

teeth have a higher risk of gum

disease, experience shifting and

loosening of remaining teeth,

and can even lose more teeth. In

addition, missing teeth also means

incurring bone loss. The jawbone

will progressively lose bone where

there are missing teeth. There are

plenty of good reasons to consider

dental implants for your smile,

including:

• Strengthened jawbone

• Increased functionality

• Improved oral health

• Properly aligned bite

• Bone loss prevention

• Natural-looking results

• Better speaking ability

• Normal eating

Long-lasting results

A dental implant is made of a

titanium post that’s embedded into

your jawbone. The post mimics a

real tooth root, keeping your jaw

strong. Your post will be capped

with a porcelain crown, which

looks, feels, and acts like a natural

tooth. If you’d like to consider the

benefits of dental implants to repair

your smile, then The Dentists at

Orenco Station will be happy to see

you at their Hillsboro office.

Dr. Brandon Kearbey and

Dr. Malinda Kearbey provide

family,cosmetic, restorative, and

sedation dentistry to Hillsboro.

They understand the special

needs and expectations of families

and professionals. The Dentists

at Orenco Station also serve the

communities of Forest Grove,

Creek. We invite you to make your

If you have a new business, the Small Business Development Center provides a list of 5 things you need to do your first year (or two).

(1)  Know yourself. Where do you fit in the marketplace? What unique value do you provide to your customers? What problems are you solving? These questions and more create your brand. Your brand is what will separate you from your competition.

(2)  Focus. Do not overlook the power of the planning process. Break down the year into 30, 60 and 90-day sprints. Define your goals and identify tasks to reach those goals. Work on this plan every single day.

(3)  Get clear on your target market. Narrow down your ideal client so you know where to find them. For example, if your target market is young Portland professionals who attend every Timbers' home games and like whiskey, you know exactly what events, the brand voice that will resonate, and the kind of advertising that will get you the best return on investment (ROI).

(4)  Develop your sales funnel. How do you engage with a potential customer? What do you do to turn them into a paying customer? Don't miss because you were unprepared or the prospect didn't know how to work with you.

(5)  Keep track of your finances. Set up your bookkeeping systems to keep track of your sales and expenses. Not taking the time to do this will cause huge headaches come tax season. More importantly, you need to know where you're spending your money and who your best paying customers are, so you can make better decisions.

 

Call us if we can help you build your business.
