Want to maintain your good health as you age? Start by keeping active. Sign up for a senior fitness class, take a walk or go for a swim. To keep your mind sharp, tackle a puzzle or word search, play a board game or a game of cards. Eat a well-balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean meat and fish, and most importantly, stay connected with friends and family. There are many community and religious organizations that offer senior citizen activities and events.
Ask your doctor or nurse for a list of organizations close to your home.
The Pain Alleviation and Trauma Healing (PATH) clinic open house was an outstanding success. Representatives from key veterans’ organizations in the Greater Pittsburgh area as well as other healthcare entities were in attendance. We would especially like to thank Shepherd’s Heart and LIFE Pittsburgh for coming to the open house. Additional items were donated by UnitedHealthcare.
Torsten Ove of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette was also present. Mr. Ove is working on an exciting new project that will feature stories of physically injured veterans. Please contact Dr. Finnell if you have any interest or know of a veteran who would like to share his or her story.
The PATH clinic is open to veterans and non-veterans alike. Please call 412-431-3520 to make an appointment.
