5 Ways to Prevent Heart Disease in Women
February is American Heart Month                     

While heart disease usually occurs later in life in women than in men, Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) remains the #1 killer for both genders. Women are more likely than men to suffer from two other forms of heart disease: Coronary Microvasculature Disease (MVD) and Broken Heart Syndrome. Currently, 1 in 4 American women die due to heart disease. These 5 steps may reduce your risk of heart disease.

6 Tips to Avoid Winter Dehydration                      
Most of us only consider combating our body's loss of water during the summer months, when it is hot outside and we can feel ourselves losing water through perspiration. In winter, however, the risk of dehydration is also very real. The causes for fluid loss may still be present in cold weather. Check out these 6 ways to avoid winter dehydration.

A Satisfied Client's Review:

"We hired Visiting Angels for my mom; we had them for a month. My mom needed help with dressing in the morning, and they did all that. My mom was very comfortable, and they were very nice to her. The woman [aide] who used to come every day was very prompt and helped my mom quite a bit when she was home. Billing and scheduling was fine; it was an automatic pay... They were very good."

Angels Who Soar: Celebrating Our Hardworking Employees    
We are so proud of our wonderful, hard-working employees who go beyond the call of duty. Read why our Angels are so special...
Tenneh M. has been with Visiting Angels for a year as a live-in aide, and has proven to be a valued member of our team! Tenneh is very observant of even small changes in our client's condition, and has cultivated a meaningful relationship with our client. She communicates very well with our office staff, completes and returns her duty sheets each week (along with her live-in timesheets), rarely takes time off, and performs her duties with dedication.

Aleia W. is a personable and friendly aide. Our clients have commented that Aleia must really enjoy what she does since she always seems to be happy and cheerful! She's also very concerned about our clients and notes any changes that affect their health. She has dementia experience and is adept at redirection. As for office procedures, she regularly submits her required weekly duty sheets, dutifully clocks in and out, and has been willing to do fill-in assignments.

We are grateful for you and thank you for your hard work, Tenneh and Aleia!
