The Etiquette of Illness

Many of us are at a loss for words when trying to offer encouragement or support to a friend or loved one suffering from an illness. This presentation offers an overview of practical suggestions, patient and caregiver perspectives, caregiver “Dos" and “Don’ts," and other communication skills that can help those that feel uncertain about responding or offering support feel more comfortable and prepared in doing so. Presented by Capital Caring CARE Representative Allison Kuchar, MSHCA, CHES, CEOLS. Call the CHV office to reserve your spot. Open to all.

Date and time: Tuesday, September 26 at 2-4pm (signup deadline is 5 pm, Sep 22)
Location: Northeast Public Library, Fully Accessible, 330 7th St NE, Washington DC 20003

CAPITOL HILL VILLAGE 10TH ANNIVERSARY

Passport to Our Future!

CHV has a range of fabulous activities to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. We are going to spend months celebrating and being inspired by the innovation and dedication of Capitol Hill Seniors. We will be working across the community to build a greater awareness of longevity and its impact on society. And we will be elevating awareness and expanding partnerships and collaboration across the community.

Mapping the Course for the Future: CHV has a 10th Anniversary campaign to build resources so we can continue as a model and expand programs and services — and ensure that the Village is prepared to meet the needs of an aging population.

October, 2017: Passport to Your Portrait. Spend time with 5th grade artists and have your portraits created. And, if you wish, create a portrait of a 5th grader yourself. Spend an hour a week learning about a 5th grader in this innovative art project with Maury Elementary School. See below for further information.

November 4, 2017: The Trip of a Lifetime. This evening event at St. Marks Church will celebrate and honor CHV’s founders, honorees and provide the opportunity to hear some of the founders’ reflections on where we come from and where we are going. Also this evening of good eats and special drinks will feature a performance of the National Chamber Ensemble. See top of page for more and save the date!

January 13, 2018: Journeying to the Future Together — Capitol Hill Festival. A day-long festival celebrating long life and our community. We will demonstrate Capitol Hill Village activities and events. We will have activities to bring generations together to learn from each other and think about long life. The festival will premiere the Intergenerational portrait work from October.

February 2018: Building an Itinerary for Life. Four programs helping to think about the future optimistically. Designed for the 40, 50 and 60 somethings. The sessions look at designing a future of good health, adventure, friends and prosperity.

Join us — to participate, volunteer and share your ideas please contact Molly Singer: msinger@capitolhillvillage.org. (202) 543 1778. Remember: there’s no Future without U!


It’s Never Too Late to See Yourself in a Different Light! Join CHV’s Intergenerational Work

We hear from seniors that they want to spend more time with youth — now’s your chance!

This fall as a part of CHV’s 10th Anniversary Celebration, CHV is partnering with Maury Elementary School’s esteemed 5th grade artists for a fun project in portraiture. This is your opportunity to get to know a 5th grader and have your portrait completed.

And, if you wish, you can do a portrait of your 5th grade counterpart. In addition to creative portraits, we are partnering with Richard Wright Public Charter School (high schools) media arts group to have photographic and documentary portraits. Along with the portrait, there will be a 5th grade write up about your life.

This is a wonderful inter-generational project and the art teacher at Maury Elementary School is magical in the quality and energy that she draws from students. I am proud of CHV for creating this partnership. — Phil Guire, CHV Board Chair

This project has four steps:

1. Get your photos taken so our artists have something to work from. This will be arranged on your schedule and in a setting of your choice.

2. Meet with the artists and learn about them and tell them about yourself. This will be an hour-long meet event where you meet and the artist interviews you to gain inspiration for his/her project.

3. Meet three times again with the artists and continue to learn about them and tell them about yourself. You will meet three times in October when the art classes meet: on Wednesdays from 2:15 -3:15 or on Fridays between 1:15-2:30. You will be meeting at the Maury School (12th and Constitution NE). It is required that you must make each of the sessions of meeting with the artist on the day / time assigned. CHV can arrange your transportation if needed.

4. Participate in CHV’s Festival of Long Life on January 13, 2018 in the community for the premiere of the artworks. We will feature both the artists’ renderings of you as well as the photos.

Artist yourself? You are welcome to create a portrait of your 5th grade partner, but you will be limited to the same art materials that they are. You will also have photos of them to work from.

Whose art is it anyway? Artists are entitled to keep their work or share with their model — it is up to the duo to work out. Everyone gets to keep their own photos!

RSVP Soon. Several folks have already signed up — but there are a few more slots. Reserve yours today by contacting Molly Singer at (202) 543 1778 or msinger@capitolhillvillage.org.
