Do you have an elderly relative that you are fearful might someday fall and injure him or herself? Is this somebody you?
Yes, the risk of falling and being seriously injured in a fall increases with age, but most adults are not falling because of age. Anyone can take a serious fall and be injured.
Join us Thursday, Nov. 11 for a program, “Don’t Let Falls Get You Down” at 1:30 p.m. at the Carroll County Extension office. This is the Extension Homemakers November lesson, but all interested residents are invited to attend.
Kate Vaught, Campbell County family and consumer sciences Extension agent, will teach us how to lower our risk of falling – anywhere, anytime or at any age.
Surviving the holidays
… with diabetes
Do you worry that during the holidays you will eat too many foods high in carbohydrates, fat and sodium?
On Monday, Nov. 15 at the Carroll County Diabetes Support Group meeting, Becky Wilson, RN, Three Rivers District Health Department and I will present a program on enjoying traditional foods and still manage your health during the holidays. We will discuss ways to adapt your favorite recipes to lower carbohydrates, fat and sodium. We will also provide samples of delicious holiday foods and recipes.
Anyone interested is invited to attend, even though you may not have diabetes. Information given out will be useful for anyone trying to cut down on calories and improve their health.
Those attending are invited to bring a favorite holiday recipe that they would like to learn to adapt to be lower in carbohydrates, sodium and fat.
Please call the Extension office to sign up to attend so we have enough materials for everyone.
