February is the season of love and appreciation, so why not celebrate your friendships this season with Galentine’s Day and Palentine’s Day! This holiday can be a celebrated compliment to Valentine’s Day, or it can act as a replacement…
The New Year is here! Are you ready to get down to the business of becoming your best self? It is a great time to set goals for the coming year and make improvements that will positively impact your life. Only as we watch time pass do we learn the value of a moment. Making the most of your time can seem daunting, but your starting with smart goals is key to success.
Gift giving is a way to tell the people in your life how much they mean to you. It can show them how much you listen and love them. But, giving gifts can be a challenge too. Especially when shopping for a senior who feels like they already have everything they need or lives in a small apartment.
Christmas is coming! This holiday season there will be frost outside and frosting inside. It's hard to avoid icing overload with sugar cookies and candy canes around every corner. For seniors watching their weight or dealing with diabetes, staying fit and healthy it is a balancing act.
Is there anything more universal than music? Music transports us. It can whisk you back in time to days in the sun, historic events, or moments with loved ones. The memories and emotions that music can conjure are as varied as they are vivid.
'Tis the season to grab some tinsel and bring a little sparkle to your home. The smell of pine and sugar cookies, the crackle of a log on the fire, the soft sound of White Christmas playing in the background - can't you just picture it? As you put up the tree and hang vintage ornaments, you'll be transported back to fond memories of yesteryear. But wait, that's not all! There are other benefits to making your home festive and fun.
In this season of Thanksgiving, we reflect on the blessings we've enjoyed in the past year and consider all of the little things we are grateful for in our lives. It is the perfect time to think about how we might pass along and share those blessings. Giving back to others by donating time or making a financial contribution can be incredibly impactful, rewarding, and empowering.
Winter is coming and with the cold weather, and gloomy, short days you may find yourself feeling a little down. Experiencing the winter blues is more common than you may think. Nearly one in five Americans experience seasonal mood changes in the winter.
Each day at Midwest Health, we have the privilege of working with seniors who inspire us in a hundred different ways. In the United States, seniors from the Greatest Generation and the Baby Boomer generation represent nearly 25% of the population. Their voices are mighty and their impact on culture and society cannot be denied.
It's a sad fact, but they're out there. Scammers are clever, innovative, and willing to work every angle. If you're not ready for them, you may quickly find yourself short-changed. Each year, fraud is estimated to cost older Americans around $36.5 billion. It's a hefty chunk of change that we're certain you'd prefer not to contribute to. Scams that target seniors are often designed to prey on fear, confusion, and doubt.
