Guest blogger Maureen Solomon shares wellness tips

Posted on: Apr 16, 2020

Taking the stairs is ALWAYS a healthier solution than entering an elevator crammed with people, touching buttons, people breathing on and near you…

As we navigate this “new Normal” environment, train your body AND Brain to take the stairs when ever possible.

Wear gloves to open doors and try to do the steps “hands free” to avoid touching High Contact areas like stair rails and door knobs.

Always wear your mask “snug” OVER nose and mouth when moving throughout the campus and coming in close contact with others.

Walk OUTSIDE of the buildings on campus to various destinations whenever possible to avoid confined areas crowded with people AND get some fresh air in your lungs along with some Vitamin D.

You must re-enter thru Pathways or Main Entrance which will increase your step count!  😊

Together, let’s try to develop new, improved behaviors during this challenging time and come out on the other side safer, healthier and wiser.

What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of resident Bernice Segal
