Give Your Loved One the Gift of Improved Health
Not sure what to give your parent or other older loved one this holiday season? Consider providing them with the help they need to optimize their health. Alaa Mira, MD, Chief, Geriatric Medicine, St. Luke’s University Health Network, says preventative health care can improve your loved one’s health and his or her quality of life. Vaccinations prevent life-threatening illness like the flu. Screenings identify diseases in their early, most treatable stages.
Food for Thought Fall 2018
Chef Jeff, Legend Senior Living
What is your approach to making meals that are appealing to residents who may have decreased appetites?
I enjoy having conversations with our residents to find out what some of their favorite meals were prior to moving into our community. Often times, a familiar meal will quickly help with a decreased appetite. In addition to seeking input from residents, Legend works with professional teams of culinary and nutritional experts to plan an appealing variety of delicious food choices.

Revolutionary Procedure Restores Urine Flow for Men
Friday, July 13th was a very lucky day for Steven Labadie of Stroudsburg. On that day, he received a revolutionary treatment called Urolift that would allow him to fully empty his bladder and end years of discomfort, inconvenience and embarrassment.
Steven’s discomfort had been caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, a condition in which the prostate enlarges as men age. For many men, BPH restricts or even blocks urine flow from the urethra. To restore the flow, Steven’s urologist Zachariah Goldsmith, MD, PhD, of St. Luke’s Center for Urology, installed small implants that lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way to restore urine flow.

Try a New (or Old) Sport This Fall
Traditionally, Fall is a time to put away the swimsuits, summer sandals and gardening tools, clean up the leaves and bring the house plants indoors.
If you have a vegetable garden or fruit trees, you may can or freeze your harvest. Longer evenings and cooler temperatures make our wool socks necessary.
The first chilly days make you want to retreat indoors, but staying active outdoors in the Fall can do a lot more than a winter’s nap. It can increase our energy level, keep your muscles strong, build your immune system, stimulate your mind and give you an opportunity to spend quality time in nature with family or friends.
You can try a new sport or activity or take up one that you haven’t participated in for some time. Here are some ideas for enjoying the outdoors now and in the coming weeks.
