His quick actions may have saved the life of a man, who had a medical emergency yesterday while visiting the Motor Vehicle Administration.

Corporal Joe Wilson was on duty as the security officer yesterday at the Annapolis Motor Vehicle Administration, where a 71-year-old man had been awaiting to be called to complete his transaction.

On April 27, 2016 shortly before 5:00 p.m., a patron reported an unconscious man, located in the waiting area to Cpl. Wilson. He responded to where the unconscious man was seated.  Cpl. Wilson discovered that the man had no pulse, was not breathing, and immediately began cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Cpl. Wilson continued CPR until medics arrived with an automated electronic defibrillator (AED).

The unconscious man was stabilized and had an intermittent pulse. Responding medics transported the man to Anne Arundel Medical Center, where he was treated.

Upon arrival, they met with the victim who advised that he was assaulted by two brothers and one of them used brass knuckles during the assault. The suspects took an undetermined amount of US currency from the victim and fled the area.

One of the responding officers was familiar with the suspects and directed officers to a residence in the 400 Block of Riverside Drive where Suspect 1 was located. He was arrested after a brief foot pursuit. Suspect 2 was located by officers on Beach Road and placed under arrest. The victim did not sustain any notable injury during the robbery. Both suspects were charged with armed robbery, robbery, 1st degree assault, and 2nd degree assault.

Partners in Care seeking volunteer drivershttp://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/04/28/partners-in-care-seeking-volunteer-drivers/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/04/28/partners-in-care-seeking-volunteer-drivers/#respond Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:11:01 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=105692 partnersincare5Partners In Care Maryland, a local 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with offices on Ritchie Highway in Pasadena, is currently searching for volunteer drivers to keep up with an increasing demand of ride requests among its growing membership of older adults who live in Anne Arundel County.

Founded in 1993, PIC’s mission is to empower older adults to remain independent in their homes and active in the community. Through its time-exchange program, the organization recognizes the unique talents of its members, enabling them to contribute to the community in meaningful ways, and especially to the well-being of each other.

For more than 20 years, PIC has helped older adults by offering (1) no cost, arm-in-arm transportation from volunteer drivers who use their own vehicles; (2) handyman services for safety and maintenance; and (3) member support for keeping up with paperwork, managing applications for food and/or fuel assistance, and other important advocacy needs. In recent years, the organization added two low cost, wheelchair accessible mobility buses to assist seniors who have special transportation needs.

The Volunteer Driver program continues to be PIC’s signature program and provides older adults, age 50 and above, with no cost, arm-in-arm transportation to area hospitals, medical appointments, dental appointments, pharmacies, supermarkets, banks, churches, hair salons, and other popular destinations. It also provides area seniors with the ability to participate in social activities throughout the community.

PIC provides transportation service to older adults who have difficulty accessing public transportation, or have limited financial resources to access mobility options. Oftentimes this is done outside of normal social service agency business and service hours.

The organization also (1) assists with transportation needs for non-emergency medical appointments that are scheduled before and after hours of local para transit; (2) serves areas where limited or no transportation services are provided or accessible; and (3) offers specialized transportation services for individuals and groups to religious services, community activities, and shopping centers.

Anyone interested in becoming a PIC Volunteer Driver is required to attend a brief orientation and training session where the goals and mission of the program are explained, and ethics and safety issues regarding older adults are discussed. Prospective volunteer drivers are informed of the insurance (CIMA) that PIC maintains on its volunteer drivers and their vehicles. Copies of their driver’s license and auto insurance policy are also kept on file.

PIC also has a partnership arrangement with AARP which conducts a Driver Safety Program for older drivers. These sessions are held quarterly at PIC’s Anne Arundel County office.

For more information on becoming a PIC Volunteer Driver, or to make a financial contribution to Partners In Care Maryland, please call 410-544-4800; or visit PIC’s website at www.partnersincare.org

What do Moms want most for Mother’s Day?http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/04/27/what-do-moms-want-most-for-mothers-day/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/04/27/what-do-moms-want-most-for-mothers-day/#respond Wed, 27 Apr 2016 16:45:50 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=106150 handstoneLooking for an inexpensive Mother’s Day gift that provides immeasurable health benefits? Well, here’s a free gift idea that’s right under everyone’s nose—

One of the easiest and most inexpensive gifts you can give a loved one that will help boost their health, mood, longevity, and even their suc­cess is to give the gift of a smile!

According to Charlie Pulsipher, a health and fitness enthusiast and popular author, “Smiles do a lot more than simply let the world know you’re happy.”

Pulsipher refers to these proven benefits of smiling:

  • Lowers Heart Rate – Smiling slows the heart and relaxes the body and also temporarily reduces blood pressure.
  • Creates a Better Mood – The endorphins do more than kick stress to the curb. Endorphins lift your mood.
  • Increases Productivity – Smiling has been shown to increase your productivity while performing tasks. There’s truth to the “whistle while we work” mentality.
  • Helps to avoid regret, kills pain, makes us more attractive to others, increases our attention span, but most importantly smiling is contagious –

about 50% of people you smile at while smile back.

So what makes Moms and other loved ones smile? We surveyed our Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa members to find out.

We asked them what their perfect gift would be and a Hot Stone massage captured nearly 50% of the vote.

According to one of our Moms, “There’s nothing more relaxing than a Hot Stone Massage!”

Our Mom’s also prove that when it comes to smiling, kids come first. When asked which personal or professional life event would make them happiest – between themselves, their spouses or children, our Mom’s overwhelmingly said that their child’s achieving a major milestone would make them happi­est, with personal achievements slightly outranking professional ones.

When asked what would put them in a better mood if they were having a bad day, and our Moms said a massage or facial –with a higher score than the 2nd and 3rd place activities combined of : “Quiet time with a good book” and “a nice meal with my spouse.”

Moms said that their massage and facial “Me time” helps them equally relieve stress and gives them a little escape time.

May 8, 2016 is Mother’s Day so give the gift that will guarantee to put a smile on your Mom’s or any loved ones face, with a Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa gift card.

This Mother’s Day you can save $10 on single spa service gift cards and $20 on spa package gift cards. Hand and Stone is located in Severna Park Plaza at 550-I Ritchie Highway (former location of Maggie Moos) with phone # 410-799-5444 and in Annapolis Harbour Center (next to the Lebanese Taverna) at 2480 Solomon’s Island Rd with phone # 410-224-4402.

Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa offers a month-to-month Lifestyle Program where for just $59.95 a month you receive a 50 minute massage or facial, your choice. Our signature Hot Stone Massage is just $20 more. And it’s month to month — no 12 month commitment at Hand and Stone. If your circumstances change, you can terminate with 30 days notice

Bottom Line—we want our Lifestyle Program members to get their money’s worth and enjoy their services and we will go out of our way to accommodate. We are open 7 days a week and have extended hours. Please come see us and/or visit our website at handandstone.severnapark.com and handandstoneannapolis.com.
