With summer officially here and the days are warming up, it’s important to know and understand the signs and symptoms of heat related illnesses. Even if you are spending hours in and around the pool, you aren’t immune to heat exhaustion or other heat related illnesses.
Let’s face it, we’re tired of COVID-19, heck maybe even all of 2020! COVID-19 and other events in our community have had devastating effects on jobs, finances, health, and more. In the worst of cases, there are individuals who have lost their lives or the life of a loved one. We can’t imagine the loss nor do we want to minimize or make light of the situation.
If self-isolation has made it hard for you to stick with exercise or healthy eating, you aren’t alone! We know you want to get back on track, and most importantly, make your health a priority again. What’s even better is that you can do this affordably with our tips for saving money on all the fitness and nutrition essentials you need.
What are the components of a quality medical alert device? Do you know what to look for? Choosing the best medical alert system is a necessity. At some point, every senior who wants to continue living in their own home well into their golden years without having to worry about the risk of a medical emergency needs to have one.
Now that summer is here, we will be spending more of our time out-of-doors and having our windows open to let the fresh air in. Of course, there are many who cannot take the heat or where it's just so oppressive that keeping a window open is impossible and the air conditioner comes on.

Older adults become more susceptible to weight loss with age because their stomachs do not digest as fast as they once did, and the excitement of eating begins to diminish as sight, smell and taste wane.
With the official start of summer behind us, many Americans are embracing the reopening of communities from coronavirus shut-downs. Unsurprisingly, most people wish to get back to “normal.” But medical experts warn that everyone must still remain vigilant. In fact, the most recent data suggests a second wave may already be forming.
