For the team at Midnight Sun Home Care, when the Midnight Sun is in full effect we are out taking advantage of the many opportunities summer brings. Alaska is blessed with beautiful but brief summers and while most of us are lucky to enjoy the spoils of the long days, we recognize not everyone has an easy time getting outside. One in four Alaskans struggle with arthritis, according to the Alaska Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation.
Arthritis is painful and can prevent otherwise healthy people from living an active and enjoyable lifestyle. Many of our clients suffer from arthritis, making it a cause close to our hearts, which is why we want to help. This month, we are hosting our fourth annual “Swing Into Solstice” Midnight Sun Charity Golf Classic. The event benefits the Alaska office of the Arthritis Foundation, an organization committed to helping reduce the pain, disability and other burdens of arthritis through advocacy, research funding, information, events, programs and services. 
The tournament may be an important fundraiser but it’s also plenty of fun. This unique Alaska event has you swinging your clubs under the Midnight Sun. It starts at midnight on Friday June 23rd and wraps up Saturday morning with a breakfast awards banquet. This is an event I look forward to every year, not only because I get to celebrate summer solstice but I also contribute to a cause I really care about.
We look forward to seeing you and hope you enjoy the season of the Midnight Sun!

Men’s Health Month –
Help Dad Stay Safe This Summer
What better time of year to celebrate Men’s Health Month than when the salmon are running and dad is out enjoying his favorite summer activities. Men’s Health Month is certainly about celebrating the men in our life but more importantly, it aims to keep them healthy by spreading awareness about the importance of preventative care and early detection.

In many of our experiences, getting dad to go to the doctor can be tough, especially when there is fishing, hiking and yard work to be done. But as our parents age, it’s even more important to make sure we are doing routine check-ups. So, in between fishing trips and camping adventures, try to get dad in for a doctor’s appointment this month.
