June 2022: Summer Days

June is upon us, with all the celebrations it brings. With Father’s Day, Flag Day, Juneteenth, and the first day of summer, plus all those weddings and graduations, you might be having a busy month. School is out, and summer vacation time begins.

To help make those hectic summer days easier to manage, keep a basket by the door for hats, sunglasses, insect spray, and sunscreen.  This way, you won’t have to run around looking for these items at the last minute, or worse, forget them.  Another thing to keep organized is to take stock of your kitchen.  If you have items you use seasonally, now is a good time to switch them out.  To take that one step further, create a smoothie or iced coffee station for when you need a cool refreshment.

June is National Safety Month, so now is a good time to update your first aid kit; make sure you have enough bandages, and the antibiotic ointment hasn’t expired. To help make sure you won’t need that first aid kit, inspect and repair any outdoor play equipment you have.  Another way to stay safe is to change your smoke alarm batteries. And if you’ve had your smoke alarm for 10 years or more, it is recommended you switch that, too.

Are you among the 73 million people expected to be over the age of 65 by 2030?  Between Baby Boomers and COVID, aging in place has been the topic of conversation for many Americans.  Being able to remain at home and function independently has become paramount. Unfortunately, few homes have the features needed to support this lifestyle.  Some of the main considerations include widening doorways and pathways – either in halls or in kitchens, accessible showers, and installing ramps or other stair alternatives. 


Fun Fact

June 2nd is National Rocky Road Day.  Rocky road is a blend of chocolate, nuts, and marshmallows.  The most popular way to eat Rocky Road is ice cream. This mixture was born in the late 1920s by William Dreyer, who got inspiration from his partner Joseph Edy. One source says the name came about to give people something to smile about during the Great Depression. If you missed Rocky Road Day, I’m sure it would be ok to celebrate it late.
