Refresh Your Soul 2017 from Parish Health Ministry at Episcopal Retirement Services ERS John OLeary Cintas Center Xavier University March 13 14 2017

Burnt beyond recognition from an accident at home with gasoline, clinging for life in a hospital at age 9, John O’Leary’s mother asked him if he wanted to live or die.

O’Leary remembers thinking only how much trouble he was going to get in with his dad.

“The only other thing I was thinking was. ‘Do I have the strength to take the next step in my journey?” says O’Leary, now married, a best-selling author and inspirational speaker.

O’Leary is also the keynote speaker for the 2017 Refresh Your Soul Conference, presented annually by the Parish Health Ministry of Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS), an event expanding in exponential fashion this year with a two-day symposium in partnership with the Dementia Care Summit at Xavier University.

To be held at The Cintas Center March 13 and 14, the 2017 Refresh Your Soul Conference, the primary fundraising vehicle for Parish Health Ministry, promises to be as insightful, thought-provoking, informative and fun as ever.

A longtime service of ERS, Parish Health Ministry serves as the ecumenical outreach between ERS (http://www.episcopalretirement.com) and 70+ churches across Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

Mr. O’Leary will be sharing his inspirational life story and buoyant messages to a crowd of caregivers and health care professionals seeking to understand more about life-changing conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

He will be joined by renowned industry speakers Loretta Anne Woodward Veney and Teepa Snow; Ms. Snow spoke at the Refresh Your Soul 2016 event last year.

Alzheimer’s & Dementia: Overcoming the Struggles and Living Inspired” is the theme for 2917; day two is the annual Xavier Dementia Care Summit. Refresh Your Soul tickets are on sale for $69.

Contact Hours are available for continuing education and professional accreditation purposes (RN/LPN, Social Worker, Nursing Home Administrator, etc.).

Ms. Veney is an author and well-known speaker who has motivated, taught and trained audiences throughout the U.S. and Europe. She is the founder and principal consultant of Superior Training Solutions, LLC.

Loretta chronicles her nine-year journey with her Mom’s Dementia as their parent/child roles have reversed in her book, “Being My Mom’s Mom – A Journey through Dementia from a Daughter’s Perspective.” Their journey has been faithful, funny, heartbreaking and hopeful.

Teepa Snow is one of America’s leading educators on Dementia. Working as a Registered Occupational Therapist for more than 30 years, her experience has led her to develop Positive Approach™ to Care techniques used by families and professionals working or living with dementia throughout the world.

{CINCINNATI, OHIO} – The first wave of retail to reign upon (and from) the hottest spot in Greater Cincinnati  is a collegiate delight of schoolbooks, scones, lattes, Musketeer swag, Starbucks and that oh-so-Cincinnati favorite, Graeter’s Ice Cream.

University Station, located adjacent to the Xavier University campus at Dana and Montgomery roads straddling Norwood and Evanston, is scheduled to open in August. It will bring new student housing – which is 93 percent leased, ample parking and a friendly mix of retail and office tenants to augment life in and around the neighborhood.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to expand from campus into the Xavier neighboring community,” said Michael Hubbard, Director of the Xavier University Bookstore. The new store will nearly double the size of the current on-campus store and offer robust assortments of technology, supplies, clothing and gifts as well as a full-service Starbucks with a large seating space.

The new space contributes greatly to our mission to maximize customer access to needed materials, as well as service as a central hub for the local community,” Hubbard said.

We are excited to be a part of the Xavier community,” said Chip Graeter, fourth-generation owner of Graeter’s. “We are looking forward to serve the students and neighborhood our handcrafted ice cream for years to come.”

University Station is a 315,000-square-foot mixed-use development at Montgomery Road and Cleneay Avenue, adjacent to the Xavier campus. Named for the rail line that runs through the site, University Station is designed to be a vibrant connection point for neighboring residents and students, employees of the university and the broader community. It is located on a 15-acre site that is connected by a neighborhood street grid.

The first phase of the $54 million development will be completed in August 2014 and includes 46,000 square feet of office space, 39,000 square feet of retail11,000 square feet for the Xavier University bookstore — 1,000 parking spaces and a 225,000-square-foot, 479-bed, 178-unit apartment complex to service Xavier students and the local community. Interest in the development is strong with 40 percent of retail and 90 percent of apartments leased.

Office space is 100 percent leased to TriHealth (Bethesda Family Practice, Queen City Physicians) and CTI Clinical Trial and Consulting Services.

Planning for University Station Phase Two is underway and will include significant additional office space, more new retail and possibly a hotel on the remaining 300,000 square feet of property.

University Station is spurring a revitalization of the community, that’s been a long time in the making. It’s an exciting time for those who live, work and study in the area, and we’re looking forward to move-in later this summer for our tenants and apartment residents,” said Dobbs Ackermann, CEO of Ackermann Group.

The project is being financed by a lead loan from U.S. Bank and through an allocation of New Market Tax Credits (NMTC) from local and national sources currently being finalized. In addition, the project will use funds from a City of Norwood Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District to help finance the required public improvements.

University Station is a transformative project in a variety of ways,” said Michael J. Graham, S.J. president of Xavier University. “Our upper class and graduate students will have the option to live off campus in new market rate apartments within walking distance to campus, a larger bookstore with a Starbucks will make it a destination not just for students but the entire community and our office tenants, TriHealth and CTI will be tremendous academic and community partners.”

The land is owned by XUPROP CO and leased for 95 years to a Ackermann/Messer entity, with the buildings and other improvements owned by the developer as well. The project is an off-campus project intended to serve the University and larger community and create a welcoming environment for the whole neighborhood.
