NeedhamGoesPurple1On Saturday, June 2nd, New Outlook Homecare volunteered at various lemonade stands in Needham in an effort to help raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association. It was a hot and busy day in Needham with a street fair and a lot of people out and about. Despite a few passing rain showers, over $7,000 were raised.

Needham Goes Purple is an annual campaign throughout the month of June where various restaurants and businesses help by donating a portion of their proceeds to the Alzheimer’s Association. Thanks to organizer, Suzanne Lissy, the town has taken on this important cause. New Outlook Homecare was proud to be a gold sponsor for Needham Goes Purple and hope to do so next year. Visit needhamgoespurple.org to find out other ways that you can get involved.

Now that it is warmer outside and the sun is shining longer, it is time to get outside and soak up as much vitamin D as you can. There are many health benefits of Vitamin D including healthier bones, reduced risk of flu and diabetes, reduction of cancer cell progression, cardiovascular health, healthier pregnancies, mood elevation and many others. Along with a healthy diet that includes fish oils and egg proteins, it is estimated that sensible sun exposure on bare skin for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times per week allows most people to produce sufficient vitamin D.

Here are some suggestions for outdoor activities that can be fun and can increase your overall health:

  • Take a walk
  • Plant a garden
  • Watch a local outdoor sporting event
  • Ride a bike
  • Feed the ducks
  • Visit an arboretum
