Celebrating National Nutrition Month

Celebrating National Nutrition Month Throughout March.

Plan to incorporate these food giants into your meals for the next 31 days to begin to develop another healthy habit and to put a spring in your step every day.

Blueberriestop the list as one of the most powerful disease-fighting foods. That's because they contain anthocyanins, the antioxidant responsible for their dark blue color. These delicious jewels are packed with fiber, vitamin C, and are available all year long. Boost heart health by adding them into your diet regularly.

Spring is in the Air?

Are you counting down the days until Spring arrives? Ah Spring, a time of rebirth, renewal, sunshine, warmer weather, increased daylight hours and so much more.

At SCS, we'll be counting down the days by introducing a blog series in March "Putting a Spring in Your Step" consisting of tips to be happy, healthy and active. So check back often to see what's coming up next!

Hint: We'll be seed planting with our most frequent Blog visitors.

Known as,Return to Golf, (RTG) the program helps physically challenged adults and veterans restore independence and improve their overall quality of life using the game of golf as a recreational therapy.

Building on a club atmosphere, this not-for-profit program includes:
  • Clinics conducted year- round that include physical therapy done in conjunction with a local hospital-based rehab provider.

It's A Fine Line

When we care for a family member, we do so out of love and often to give back to a loved one who has cared for us or come to our aid. This is often the case when a child cares for their parent.

Unfortunately, what starts out as a loving gesture over time can become a point of contention. Recently, I spoke with a daughter who decided it was time to bring in some additional help. She said, "I've been doing my Mom's shopping for years and I try to take her to all of her doctor's appointments.
