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.

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.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. The good news? It is also one of the most preventable. Making heart-healthy choices, knowing your family health history and the risk factors for heart disease, having regular check-ups and working with your physician to manage your health are all integral aspects of saving lives from this often silent killer.  FEBRUARY IS HEART HEALTH MONTH.
You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. To lower your risk:
  • Watch your weight.
  • Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.
  • Control your cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get active and eat healthy.

Make a difference in your community by spreading the word about strategies for preventing heart disease and encouraging those around you to have their hearts checked and commit to heart-healthy lives. For further information about heart disease, heart attacks and ways to keep your heart healthy, visit the American Heart Association.
