Cardiovascular diseases, which includes stroke, claim the lives of about one woman every 80 seconds unnecessarily. O’Connor Woods is striving to change those numbers by getting active and making healthy lifestyle changes.
On February 2nd our residents, staff and families participated in a Heart & Sole Walk to support the American Heart Association’s “Go Red Day”. There were three different walk routes to choose from, information stops along the routes on how to stay heart healthy and a stamp card to turn in at the end for a raffle prize entry.
Our Health Clinic also hosted a Heart Health Check Up Day where residents and staff could stop by to have their blood pressure checked.
