  2. There is an almost magical area just above Boquete’s downtown called El Santuario. Its a plateau just above downtown in the heart of Boquete. You enter El Santuario up a short paved road lined with coffee plantations, flowering bushes and bougainvilleas. As you pass Boquete’s only castle you come to the plateau about 5 minutes from vivacious downtown Boquete with gorgeous vistas all around and an excellent microclimate. This is El Santuario, home to one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the entire province. Nestled in this area and insulated from much of the property around it is this fabulous property with awesome commercial potential. With so many beds, the property is ripe for a hotel or rental operation. It also could become an estate residence, retreat or convention center that can accommodate many guests.

You will be trained in the use of the equipment, check out and check in procedures (It's easy). You need to be able to lift 30lbs You don’t have to respond to every dispatch, only when it works with your schedule. If interested, Please call or email John Ferguson at 6613-9391 (WhatsApp) or email johnstpete@gmail.com Presidents Letter Help Needed: We have 75% of the slate of officers for next year filled: Vice President – Stacey Stich Treasurer – Laurie Collier Secretary – John Ferguson But…We still need a President. The President is the public face of Boquete Health and Hospice, and as such, presides over the Council Meetings, General Meetings and helps in any public relations events as needed. He or she is responsible for creating agendas, working on any new policies that may be needed and acting as a conduit between the Council and the organization along with contributing to the newsletter and maintaining the teams. BUT this job is not done alone. Whenever a request for help has gone out, there has always been someone there to help. If you think you may be interested in filling this position, please contact Lesley Hughes (lesleyahughes@gmail.com) to discuss further. Email Lesley Reflections From Your New Newsletter Editor In covering Boquete Health and Hospice (BHH) news, I had the honor of attending your October 2021 Zoom Council Meeting – incredible! Having been a part of many volunteer organizations over the years, the BHH organization, with the various events, opportunities, structure and just total professionalism is so very impressive. Your president Lesley Hughes had an extensive meeting agenda, ran the meeting efficiently and covered an immense volume of material in just under an hour. The services BHH covers – ranging from blood drives, to equipment lending, handling domestic violence calls, information workshops – what a fantastic community resource both for Panamanians and expats. Reports from various Council members also showed that BHH works well with other community organizations; Hospital Regional (blood drive), the Handicap Foundation (equipment), the mayor’s office, etc. There is even a committee to write thank you notes to donors – and what an important and often overlooked item! I am proud to be part of BHH, and look forward to working with all of you. Please do not hesitate to let me know of any feedback you have on the newsletter, and anything you would like to see us add. Thank you. Linda Jaekel Avery, Boquete Health & Hospice Newsletter linda@boquetehealth.org The Rhythms of Life: Releasing the Mind The Wellness Benefits of Mantra Did you know that singing a mantra to yourself has many benefits, even if you are not singing out loud? It can help to keep you rooted and mindful in the present moment, especially when one is out and about, away from one's usual sources of music. The Beatles' George Harrison stated that in his life he experienced "nothing higher" than the happiness he and John Lennon experienced from singing mantra. That's a compelling statement about the power of mantra from two men who were at the pinnacle of the music world with unparalleled success, fame, and fortune! And it certainly is intriguing that singing mantras made them happier than singing to thousands of adoring, screaming fans! This month the "Magic of Music" Team explores the world of mantra which can have positive effects on anxiety, stress, depression, burnout, anger and psychological distress, not to mention opening the doors to expanded states of consciousness! Also be sure to check out the wide variety of mantra playlists, from traditional to reggae and modern rock, from The Beatles to Gregorian Chant, to an album of mantras released last year by the Dalai Lama! You will also find two original recordings from your own "Magic of Music" Team! Full Article Those who volunteer with BHH are truly amazing. If you remember last December’s newsletter, the list went on and on. Or look at the roots and trunk of our Tree of Life. Dave and Erin Ross Core members of the Boquete expat community, have been active in BHH from its very onset in 2007. (Initially BHH started with a group of people bringing together their skills, who took turns presenting an area of their expertise to the group. Dave’s first talk was on end-of-life transitioning.) Erin joined the group and, as with all her various community projects, she gave BHH her enthusiasm, talent and energy. When Erin became the head of the newly created Ambassador Team, she was the perfect leader. As Ambassadors, Dave and Erin assemble and deliver Friendship Baskets that are given to people in need of a boost. The gift they select is always lovely, personal and perfect for the recipient - but their visits are the capstone in helping to raise the spirits of those in difficulty. They are selfless, compassionate, and have made significant contributions to the growth and development of BHH. Although Dave and Erin are planning to cut back on their activities and are stepping down from their roles with BHH, they will continue to create and deliver the friendship baskets. Their wonderful contribution over the years to the well-being of the people of Boquete is much appreciated! Thank you Dave and Erin!!

October Activity Recaps October 9th Blood Drive 
On Saturday, October 9, Boquete REALLY ‘Showed It’s Love’ at our most attended Blood Drive ever. 61 pints of blood were collected and since 1 pint can save 3 lives, we have impacted 183 lives. Thanks go to the Blood Bank Staff from Hospital Regional; Mayor Joswar Alvarado, our co-sponsor; the Matching Fund Donors who financially support our efforts; the BHH volunteer workers; and MOST IMPORTANTLY to the 61 people who willingly donated their precious blood to help others in the community. It may not be known that the blood drive operates under the control of the blood center at Hospital Regional (David). Any member of our community can call our blood line (see below) and request blood. BHH only acts as an intermediary (providing a location and assisting with logistics) between the Hospital Regional and our community. Without the blood drives that Hospital Regional and BHH sponsor, getting blood transferred from Hospital Regional to Mae Lewis Hospital or Chiriqui Hospital quickly would not be possible. In September our blood team received a call from a woman who was desperate to get some blood for a family member. We were able to supply her with the five (5) units that were required and a life was saved. This would not have been possible except for the generosity of those who donate blood and matching funds. The Matching Fund program was supported by donors who gave $1,557. Remember, if you or your loved one needs blood, send a WhatsApp text to 507 6590-2000, or call our main line 507 6781-9250. October 9th Radio Show with Dra. Shannon Tuer On October 9, Dra. Shannon Tuer hosted Kim Doherty and Lesley Hughes who explained the Being Prepared Program, its history, how it works in real life, the benefits from spending the time to organize and prepare for the unexpected (or expected) death of a loved one. The video of the show can be found on our website and on YouTube. Watch Video October 13th General Meeting There were 25 in attendance – both in person and by Zoom – and your officers updated members on different team reports and activities of the month. The Blood Drive topped all records and you can see their detail above. There may be some upcoming equipment shortages and the equipment team is working hard to tabulate and see if additional purchases may be needed. The meeting was capped off by a fabulous presentation by Dr. Rod Gottula on different forms of skin cancer and early warning signs. If you missed this – it will be posted on the website for your benefit. Vaccinations If you are vaccinated, please take a photo of your vaccination card and upload it to our website.

These Bright Colors Lower Your Risk of Cognitive Decline Within virtually every fruit and vegetable lies a large and diverse group of phytochemicals (plant compounds) called flavonoids. Together with a separate group called carotenoids, they supply fruit and vegetables with their vivid colors. Flavonoids also have a number of health benefits. They’re potent antioxidants, defend against inflammation and help support immune function. Many population studies already show flavonoids help prevent the onset of heart disease, cancer and neurodegeneration. Recently, researchers at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health wanted to explore the effects of flavonoids on the brain. In particular they were interested in which of the six main subgroups of flavonoids protect the brain from cognitive decline and by how much.
