Happy Valentine’s Day and Heart Health Month From Green Hill!

Love can make your heart swell or give you heart break. A healthy heart is a must in matters of love and life.

Remember February is Heart Health Month. Make healthy heart choices in the food that you consume and your exercise routine. Have regular checkups and know your risk factors for heart disease.

Green Hill provides its residents with the education and tools that they need to stay healthy. Go Red For Women was the theme of National Wear Red Day 2017, bringing national attention to heart disease as the #1 killer of women. This year Stevi Kurus, RN, educated our elders on the ways to prevent heart disease and stroke.  A heart healthy trail mix was provided as a snack to participants.

On Valentine’s Day at Green Hill love was in the air and sweet treats abound all over the campus. As a special holiday treat Elders enjoyed their annual Valentine’s day baking in Green House Home 119, led by Judy Pawlowski, daughter of elder Shirlean Russo who supplied cookie dough and decorations to make dozens of delicious cookies. In the Legacy auditorium elders and staff enjoyed an afternoon of love with music by saxophonist and vocalist Danny, heart shaped brownies and strawberry shortcake.

Keep love in your heart and your heart healthy for Valentine’s Day.
