May 17-23 is National EMS (Emergency Medical Services) week and this Monday is Memorial Day, one of the most revered dates on our calendar. Noble Horizons recognizes and thanks the exceptional heroes who honor and serve our nation and local communities.
Leading a life of service demands constant and rigorous training, unimaginable sacrifices, and a deep commitment to duty, regardless of the dangers. We are humbled by and grateful to these courageous heroes who work selflessly 24-hours a day, 365 days a year to protect and safeguard us. Especially in the absence of Memorial Day parades at which we traditionally honor EMS professionals and veterans, Noble Horizons is proud this week to spotlight many of these remarkable men and women on our blog and Facebook page.
We offer our deepest gratitude for their esteemed service and inspiring commitment to making our world, our nation, and our communities safer.
There is a tendency to judge groups of people as homogeneous rather a collection of individuals. Seniors, for example, consist of different demographics, pursue different goals, harbor different needs or concerns, and enjoy different hobbies and interests. These generalizations can extend to senior living communities that are as diverse as the people who call them home.
Have you ever bought something new, put it away for future use, and then months or even years later find it stuffed in a corner or back of a drawer – sometimes with the store tag or label still on it? You aren’t alone. We all accumulate stuff over the years – and yes, stuff we don’t even remember we have. Some items become heirlooms or even hold sentimental value that can’t be purchased like artwork created by children or grandchildren.
Starting a new exercise regimen can be tough at any age, but for an older adult it can be especially intimidating. For those who are out of shape or dealing with health conditions it can be downright scary. That’s where yoga comes in.
In Greek, “Holos” means wholeness. From the Greek root, holism is thus to do with the whole unit rather than as a sum of its individual parts. It follows naturally, then, that holistic care is about caring for the whole human being.
