We can thank technology for plenty of things—keeping us connected, providing us with endless information, and making many things more accessible. However, it’s also responsible for a growing amount of crime through scams and fraud. Unfortunately, a big target for these professional scammers is senior citizens. Through this blog, you’ll become more aware of how these fraudulent schemes operate and learn some steps you can take to prevent yourself from falling victim.
As we continue to celebrate Women’s History Month, we recognize the many contributions the amazing women at Holland Home make to our organization and community. Our Director of Nursing, Tracy J., is one of the incredible women who make this place so special.
As we age, the role that health and wellness play in our life changes from when we were younger (we’re probably not trying to make the varsity basketball team anymore), but it doesn’t change in importance. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle as we age becomes imperative to maintaining independence and living a high quality of life. To help inspire you as we begin this new year, we asked Holland Home fitness team members for tips on incorporating wellness into your weekly routine. We’ve also spoken with some Holland Home residents about their wellness journeys and how it has impacted them.
Tai Chi has been used for centuries for both physical and mental training. In fact, it is often described as “meditation in motion.” With its gentle movements and deep breathing techniques, Tai Chi offers a number of benefits for seniors. That’s why Holland Home offers classes numerous times a week.
