National Family Caregivers Month
November is a special time in which the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association acknowledge the many caregivers in the U.S. and appreciate them for their time and countless sacrifices. We know that recovering from a stroke not only impacts survivors but their caregivers, family, and friends.
National Hospice and Palliative Care Month
Effective palliative care requires a highly-customizable patient- and family-centered approach that allows individuals to focus on the quality of life by anticipating, preventing and treating suffering associated with their illness.
Heart Healthy Thanksgiving
Mashed potatoes with cream. Stuffing made with sausage and butter. Candied yams with caramel sauce and marshmallows. Pies, cakes and cookies. It’s a Thanksgiving buffet of our dreams. But over-indulging in these beloved holiday foods can derail your healthy eating habits, causing dreaded holiday weight gain. And that’s weight we don’t lose over the course of the year.
