Maintaining the health, wellness, and safety of our residents is our number one priority. Due to the COVID-19 situation, effective immediately we are restricting visitors to our community. This is in cooperation with federal mandates regarding this situation. Letters regarding specific details are being sent to the responsible parties for our residents to provide them with more detailed information. In addition to restricting visits, our staff will be screened prior to the starting of their shifts and have been trained on the symptoms of COVID-19 as well as infection prevention techniques. This is a fluid situation and we will keep you informed as the situation changes. We appreciate your cooperation and patience. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

With steadily rising outdoor temperatures, we thought it smart to cover the VERY important topic of hydration. Every bit of advice listed below should be considered advice for both you and your senior loved one. So here you go, seven tips to stay hydrated this summer:
[Bonus for you parents out there!]
Our bodies are made up nearly 60% of water and kids are an even greater percentage. Every cell, tissue and organ in our body relies on water. For example, our bodies rely on water to regulate temperature, remove toxins, and keep our joints lubricated. When we talk about hydration, it means keeping our water levels in our bodies in a healthy range so we can function at our best.
You should drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day. (Ex: If you weigh 120lbs, you should drink 60 ounces of water each day.). One of the simplest ways to know if you’re drinking enough water is the color of your urine. In most cases, a well-hydrated person will have colorless or light yellow urine. If it is dark yellow or amber, it may be a sign of dehydration. Another telltale sign you’re dehydrated? You’re thirsty. If you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated and you need to pick it up!
We’re glad to have you here on our assisted living and memory care blog and hope you find it useful. Refer back to the above links to our four chiropractic clinics and call us anytime you have questions regarding how we can help you manage pain.
