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.

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
