Page 3-THE NEWS-April, 1986 Jewish Social Services JSS Wants You To Know: Jewish Social Services is proud of its part in improving the quality of life for seniors in our community. We have added transportation availability for doctor appoint ments, grocery shopping, or other needs one-day-a-week. We are renting the JCC van and driver once a week for this program. Seniors pay $1 per trip; we reimburse the JCC for the other expenses. Call to find out more about this. We are fortunately not alone in providing services to seniors. There are many who volunteer both through us and other places to help seniors. We applaud the follow ing new evidences in our community: • The 10th and 11th graders of Temple Israel who have become friendly visitors to the homebound. • The newly formed Caring Committee at Temple Beth El to visit the sick and frail elderly. • Those persons who drive seniors, call on others, and make life less lonely. I just wish we had groups or individuals who would not forget that we have 12 Jewish persons in non-Jewish nur sing homes in Charlotte. They are part of the community but too often forgotten. A.ny takers'; Kuralt to Narrate Oratorio*s Season Debut of King David Charles Kuralt, anchor of “CBS Sunday Morning” and frequent contributor to the “CBS Evening News with Dan Rather,” will narrate The Oratorio Singers of Char lotte’s first offering of the 1986-87 season, KING DAVID by Arthur Honegger.

By Adrienne Rosenberg JSS Director Often the reasons people contact Jewish Social Services are the feelings of anxiety, fear of the unknown, and an uncer tainty where to turn for help. Sometimes the reason people are experiencing stress has a recent origin, such as a job loss or death of a relative. But usually the situation has gone on for awhile, with the accom panying feelings of depression, helplessness, and scare becom ing an overwhelming occur rence. Often there are physical symptoms evident: loss of ap petite, sleeplessness, head aches, lack of energy, etc. After all, how does one cope with job loss, physical decline of aging parents, serious finan cial problems, poor relation ships with family members, or health concerns? The emo tional stress experienced by most people is related to the ways in which they try to maintain a sense of worth in a world which makes conflicting demands. Often we feel “trap ped” by our situations and see no light at the end of the tunnel. Feeling trapped can make one angry. But it is not always easy to express anger at an 85-year-old mother who doesn’t remember she called you three other times that day, or a boss who only wants things done his way, or those ungrateful children who don’t appreciate what we do or especially a sick spouse who doesn’t have long to live. Be sides, how does one live with the giiilt if one does get angry? Neither Elaine nor myself have the power or magic wands to change a death, job loss, aging or health crisis or the other reasons people come to see us. But we can help peo ple know that the feelings they are'experiencing are accept able. By verbalizing the fears and concerns, by getting emo tional support from a trained professional, and by learning how to cope with the trauma, one can find they feel less helpless and depressed. That is really what counsel ing is about — getting emo tional support, learning pro blem solving skills and becom ing less panicky about our trauma. Resources are found out about, connections are made; it is being willing to be vulnerable in front of someone professional in order to restore equilibrium. Student Loans Just a reminder that Jewish Social Services is in the pro cess of accepting student loan applications for college students. These are interest free loans granted by Jewish Children’s Service from Atlanta. They are based on finan cial need and granted on an annual basis. Applications must be completed by May 9,1986. To inquire about this, call Jewish Socied Services at 364-6594 or 366-5007.
