Longest Day 4New Outlook Homecare was honored to be a co-sponsor of Needham Goes Purple‘s lemonade stands, a local campaign in association with The Longest Day to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. On June 10th, 14 lemonade stands were set up throughout Needham with the goal of raising awareness and donations in support of Alzheimer’s research. It was a 90+ degree day – a perfect day for lemonade. Thank you to Ed Shems for designing the wonderful lemonade cups on behalf of New Outlook Homecare.

Thanks to the co-sponsors, local restaurants and a huge push by organizer, Suzanne Lissy, over $7,000 was collected with additional funds still coming in. If you missed the lemonade stands on June 10th, there are still opportunities to make a contribution. Visit www.needhamgoespurple.org for additional details or consider making a donation directly to the Alzheimer’s Association.

ALZ2017

On Sunday, September 24, 2017, New Outlook Homecare will once again participate in the Greater Boston’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Our team will join close to 5,000 people walking either 1.5 or 3.5 miles toward a common goal – to raise awareness and funds for research to end Alzheimer’s disease.  According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s and last year, 15.9 million caregivers provided care for someone with the disease. It is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.

We are looking for team members to join us on September 24th. If you are interested in joining Team New Outlook Homecare, please visit http://act.alz.org/site/TR?team_id=391271&fr_id=10472&pg=team to register. There are no fees to walk and there is no fundraising obligation.  Each team member will get an awesome team shirt and flower.

If you are unable to walk, but still want to contribute, consider making a donation or volunteer on walk day.  We look forward to seeing you on September 24th.  For more information, contact Marcy.

MickMorganCollage
On March 18, 2017, New Outlook Homecare had the great pleasure of participating and sponsoring in the Mick Morgan 5K Run for HESSCO (Health and Social Services Consortium) to benefit Meals on Wheels, a national program that supports meals for seniors and individuals with disabilities. Despite the cold weather (27°F), it was a beautiful day filled with energy, silly St. Patrick Day costumes and enthusiasm.

The race went along a challenging route with a lovely view of the Walpole Country Club. There were many hills, but runners persevered. As a first time runner, it was incredibly motivating to see neighbors coming out of their homes to cheer us on and push us to complete the 3.3 miles to the finish.

We look forward to participating again next year and hopefully, it’ll be a warmer day. Either way, we will be running and supporting HESSCO.
