|A Message from Our NYC Chapter Chair |
Spring is almost here, and with it comes warmer weather, perfect for walking off the remaining few pounds left over from the holidays.
To ensure you walk in comfort, read Amy Epstein's article about her feet. I too had orthotics prescribed a few years ago, which have made a significant difference in my life. Along with improving my balance, they enable me to walk farther and faster, and most importantly, pain free!
I also recommend Dr. Ellen Pfeffer Lafargue's very informative article about Hearing Loss. If it strikes a chord, register for the program Dr. Lafargue will be conducting on May 25th and get all your questions about hearing loss answered!
For a quick reminder of everything the Caring Collaborative (CC) offers and how to request services, see the article by Barbara Stahura and our Coordinator, Shawndra Card-Grant, about taking full advantage of the CC. If you don't already belong, you can sign up now for the next CC Orientation.
Finally, check out the delicious healthy recipes included below!
I wish you all warmth and sunshine in the coming months, and don't forget to....
Have a Great Day!

We think of our ears as a place to rest our glasses, to adorn with earrings, and oh yes, as receptors of sound. The ear is actually made up of much more than the visible outer ear and is a complex system of bones, ligaments, fluids and nerves that make up the auditory system. Any or all of these can sustain damage from a wide variety of causes that can affect your hearing. Damage to any part of the auditory system causes hearing loss.
The result of loss of hearing for most people is interference with communication. People address the communication problems through some combination of use of technology, communication strategies, and coping mechanisms. While hearing loss is not "age-related" per se, as we get older, hearing loss becomes more and more... Read More

Caregiving Teams Help Friends in Need
By Susan B. Garland, Contributing Editor

Perhaps you can turn to a relatively new model of caregiving: a network of volunteers who join forces to lend you a Read More
