How can American Heart Month make a difference? Both at home and in the community, we can use February as a time when we raise awareness about heart disease.
One way to do this is to encourage families and loved ones to make small lifestyle changes. For example, you can educate them on how to use spices to enhance their food instead of salt. You could suggest a walk with someone you know who would benefit from more exercise… probably almost everyone! You could encourage friends and family to get their blood pressure checked, something that can often be done at the corner drug store.
Hopefully, you are working on all these things in your own life. Heart disease remains the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. Let’s make this February, American Heart Month, the time we shine a light on our own heart health!
Most seniors can live independent lives for quite some time with just minor assistance. Family and friends cannot always be there to help with daily tasks, but Serving Seniors can help fill the need for transportation, errands, housekeeping, and more. Just a few hours a week can enhance your senior’s independence, happiness and overall quality of life.
Joan assists concerned families seeking a trained caregiver who will treat their loved ones with dignity, respect and compassion. Serving Seniors provides the highest level in-home non-medical care and companionship. Families and seniors can be assured of friendly, personalized service from dedicated, compassionate caregivers.
