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.

On Sunday, September 25, 2016, New Outlook Homecare participated in Greater Boston’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Our team of nearly twenty participants joined 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.

September 25th was a brisk, beautiful, sunny day. With our lime green t-shirts, Team New Outlook Homecare was all smiles as the walk began. Listening to speeches by radio personalities, celebrities and Mayor Marty Walsh, the Walk officially began just after 10:00 a.m. “Let’s go. This is so fun,” said five-year old Seth as we headed under the purple archway.

It was so nice to see supporters holding various colored flowers. Blue represented someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Purple was for someone who has lost a loved one to the disease. Yellow represented someone who is currently supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer’s and Orange was for everyone who supports the cause and vision of a world without Alzheimer’s. The organization provided nourishment, water and support the entire route.

New Outlook Homecare was proud to participate in such a meaningful way and we thank all of those that participated in the Walk. Donations are still being collected. If you’d like more information or wish to donate, please visit our team’s page or visit the Alzheimer’s Association website: http://www.alz.org. We hope you can join us next year.

“Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” – Mother Teresa

February was National Heart Health Month. It’s not only important to take care of our physical heart, but also our spiritual heart! To spread some love last month, we had the delight of sponsoring a special Valentine’s Day event for our friends at Tradition of Dedham. It was a fantastic event which featured a wonderful band, “White Heat Swing Band”, that kept everyone entertained! It was a great sight to hear the joy and see the smiles on everyone’s faces. Check out some more pictures below!

The holiday season is a time filled with happiness and joy. However, it can be tough for many people, having to do shopping, traveling, or planning holiday parties/dinners for families and friends. This time can be particularly stressful and overwhelming for caregivers. To make the holidays a bit easier and less stressful, here are some tips:

–          Note the effect of the environment and activities on your loved ones

–          Give a heads-up to family or friends coming to visit about the condition of your care receiver

–          Involve the care receiver in holiday tasks, such as decorations or baking

–          Reminisce about past holidays or fun traditions

–          Don’t place too many expectations on yourself and be open to creating new traditions

–          Have the celebration in the home of the care receiver

–          Suggest a pot luck, so that not all the work has to be done by yourself

–          Don’t hesitate to ask for help and accept help

–          Celebrate and maintain contact with friends and family

–          Last but not least, take some time for yourself and reward yourself; Take breaks

Mass ALFA Event!

Image

  On Thursday Oct 25th we had the privilege to co-sponsor the Mass ALFA (Massachusetts Assisted Living Facilities Associations) Conference and Trade show held at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA.  Mass ALFA is a great organization that is dedicated to providing information and education regarding assisted living and is an advocate for seniors. The theme for this year’s show was “Designing the Future of Senior Living.” The morning keynote address set the tone for the day’s events with a great speech about the role of technology in the future of aging and assisted living. There were a wide range of topics that were discussed throughout the event, from sales and marketing to financial and legal tips, and also information about resident care and innovations in assisted living and care giving.

    We were located at Booth 6, between Emeritus Senior Living (one of the largest networks of Assisted Living, Retirement, and Alzheimer’s Care Communities) and Summit ElderCare/NaviCare (a medical, insurance, and social support program for adults 55+). This is an awesome event with lots of networking opportunities.  We had a great time meeting new people and were able to gather more information that will help us to better serve our clients! We had a blast and hope to see you all next year!
