FROM YOUR DIRECTOR
Did you know that research has shown that music can make us smarter, happier, and more productive? That it can actually change our moods? There’s even an entire genre of research and music developed for babies and children. High school and students are told to listen to classical music before important tests because the complexity and mathematical precision of the notes prepares their brains for advanced thinking.
Research has been conducted in the role of music in the lives of seniors also. According to Dr. Oliver Sacks, Professor of Neurology & Psychiatry at Columbia University, music reduces stress, modifies moods, soothes pain, improves sleep, helps during surgery, boosts heart health, improves stroke recovery, and eases anxiety and depression in seniors.
Music has always been a big part of life at Crestwood Village. At most events, we play music. There are pianos or stereos in our lobbies. Walking down the hallways, I always have to smile when I hear the faint sounds of music coming from apartments. It also makes me feel like I know our residents better when I hear the music to which they listen. Classical. Pop. Country. Jazz. We’ve heard and played it all at Crestwood.
This month we are on the road to North Carolina. North Carolina is the largest producer of sweet potatoes in the nation. Students at a Wilson County school petitioned the North Carolina General Assembly for the establishment of the sweet potato as the official state vegetable. Whitewater Falls in Transylvania County is the highest waterfall in the eastern United States. The World War II battleship ‘North Carolina’ is permanently berthed on the Cape Fear River at Wilmington. She was saved from the scrap heap in the 1960s by public subscription, including donations of dimes by schoolchildren.

Crestwood Village North residents hula danced and enjoyed some fabulous Hawaiian food at the Crestwood Village South Luau in July. Residents had fun at our tropical paradise listening to the amazing music by Chuck Guhl.
It was Christmas in July at Crestwood Village North! Residents in Building 1 had weekly Christmas-themed events in their building and ended the month with a robust White Elephant gift exchange! Residents schemed, plotted and some eventually either lost or stole the coveted prize from another resident in the exchange. It was a great time of laughing and companionship with neighbors.

PROTECT YOUR SKIN WHILE IN THE SUN
The sun has many healing properties and health benefits and it’s the best way to get Vitamin D. One way to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays besides sunscreen is to eat your sunscreen (not actual sunscreen).
Sweet potatoes and peppers contain plenty of beta carotene and vitamin C — both of which are important antioxidants for your skin. Vitamin C is also necessary to create collagen, the structural protein that keeps your skin strong.
Broccoli and any cabbage family vegetable are also a good source of vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids. These are important for skin health. They also contain sulforaphane, which may help prevent skin cancer and protect your skin from sunburn
Eating green leafy vegetables, which contain lutein and zeaxanthin, help stop UV-induced cell proliferation to reduce sun burn. The food includes; Kale, leaf lettuce, green peas, Callard greens and spinach.
Fatty types of fish like salmon, which contains omega-3 fatty acids, can reduce inflammation and keep your skin moisturized. They’re also a good source of high-quality protein, vitamin E, and zinc.
