The residence, operated by Little Sisters of the Poor since 2004, offers skilled nursing care and assisted living facilities. On June 25, ProMedica Health System agreed to donate 22 skilled nursing bed licenses to the facility to enhance the level of care that is provided to residents.

“As a mission-driven organization, we are committed to supporting organizations like Little Sisters of The Poor, which are dedicated to improving the quality of life for needy seniors in our communities,” says Gladeen Roberts, president, PHS Nursing Center of Excellence.

Ohio law holds every county to a limited number of nursing home beds, which must be licensed by the Ohio Department of Health. Although the purchase price for a single bed license varies in Northwest Ohio, the value of the donation from ProMedica to the Little Sisters of the Poor is valued at more than $330,000.

The month of June is traditionally a special time to celebrate the men in our lives. Just in time for National Men’s Health Week, June 14-20, and Father’s Day, June 20, TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), the nonprofit weight-loss support organization, offers a variety of tips and ideas to help improve a man’s health and also can benefit the entire family. They include:

Simple, healthy ways to honor Dad
• Time is a gift; give it to share it. Make a date for a regular activity and support each other in your healthy lifestyle. Commit to doing yard work together every Saturday or taking regular walks every other evening after dinner.

• Does he like to cook? Give him a healthy cookbook for his collection. Provide him with new grill accessories and encourage replacing unhealthy options with grilled fresh vegetables, fish and seafood.

• Give him a surprise activity - a long bike ride, a day hike, doubles tennis with two other family members or an afternoon of golf.

• A subscription to a health and fitness or sports magazine that matches his interests will be a gift that keeps on giving sound advice for his healthy lifestyle.

• A healthy brain is a happy brain. Give him books of puzzles and brain-teasers. Play board games with him and the rest of the family.
