raquelWe are pleased to welcome Raquel Crowley as our new Office Manager. Raquel comes to us with over 15 years of office administration experience including human resources, accounting and payroll.  She brings to New Outlook a vast knowledge of working with customers, communicating effectively with a team of office personnel, onboarding new hires and handling all aspects of office finances.

Raquel has four children and has lived locally for most of her adult life.  She was raised in Spain as a young child and her parents currently live there. She is fluent in Spanish. In her free time, she loves to spend time with her active family.  She enjoys working in her yard, cooking, and anything outdoors.

When she was young, one of her first jobs was working in a local nursing home as a nurse’s aide assistant. She loved interacting with the residents and hearing the wonderful stories that they loved to share.  She would look forward to seeing them and being there to listen and assist them. This was one of the reasons that she looked forward to working at New Outlook Homecare and being a part of our organization. We are thrilled to have her a part of our team.

Black Panther movie

We had the pleasure of sponsoring two events this month at Needham’s Center for the Heights. On July 13th, we sponsored the movie, Black Panther. The seniors enjoyed popcorn and other goodies as they watched one of the Marvel favorites on a big screen.

On July 18th, the Massachusetts Audobon Society came to present “Reptiles in Our Own Backyard.” It was fascinating to learn about the various critters that are in New England. Did you know that there are no lizards in Massachusetts anymore? They’re not native to this area any longer. Guests were able to touch the reptiles and it was a pleasure to visit with everyone after the event.

We’re looking forward to sponsoring many more programs at the Needham Senior Center this coming year. Stay tuned.

If you have an event that you are looking for sponsorship, give us a call at 781-686-1053 or email Marcy.

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
To learn more about the health benefits of Vitamin D, visit Medical News Today.

Mick Morgans 2018

On March 10, 2018, 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 provides meals for seniors and individuals with disabilities. The program provides a vital lifeline, which includes a wellness check and a friendly visit. In fact, 92% of recipients say that Meals on Wheels has allowed them to remain at home, where they want to be.

March 10th was a beautiful and sunny 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. Owner and founder of New Outlook Homecare, Pearly Evans, participated for the first time. “I can’t believe I did it,” she said as she crossed the finish line. It was incredibly motivating to see neighbors coming out of their homes to cheer runners on and push them to complete the 3.3 miles.

New Outlook Homecare was proud to be a silver sponsor for the race and look forward to participating next year. For more information about the run or HESSCO, visit their website at www.hessco.org.
