Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving,

The roads are slush, there’s shopping to do and end of year business to attend to. As we enter the busy holiday season it’s easy to get caught up in the frenzy and forget to give thanks. Taking a moment to reflect on our blessings allows us to move forward with purpose and gratitude.

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for my family – who are there for me, chastise and correct me, support me and believe in me. Every day my family helps make me a better husband, father, boss and friend.

I am also thankful to the staff at Midnight Sun Home Care, who have become like family to me. My talented and compassionate team is the foundation of the business I am so proud to represent. My staff in and supports my vision of serving Alaska’s most vulnerable populations. They also share my values and while I would like to say I’m perfect…I have to admit they correct me when I’m wrong and they’re not afraid to voice their opinions.

Finally, I’m thankful for the Anchorage community filled with family, friends, clients and business associates. Thank you for trusting us with the care of your loved ones. It has been an honor to help. I’m also appreciative to the community for providing feedback and helping me guide and grow my business. It has been a pleasure giving back and growing our roots in the community we call home.

As we enter the season of thanks it’s always important to push pause on our busy life and take a moment for gratitude and this year I’m hoping to remember my blessings more often.

Happy Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for?

One in 11 Americans suffer from diabetes. November marks National Diabetes Month an event aimed at spreading awareness about the risks, symptoms, complications, prevention and management of diabetes.

The 2017 National Diabetes Month theme is “You Are the Center of Your Diabetes Care Team.” You can check out the theme video here. The goal is to encourage people with diabetes to take their care into their own hands by asking their doctors questions, educating themselves and seeking out support groups.

With such a high rate of diabetes in our country it’s important for everyone to know their risk. You can determine your risk in less than a minute by watching this video – as an added bonus the video is pretty cute. (If you like dogs more than hedgehogs try this one, oh and there’s disco goats too, now we’ve got your attention.) It’s important to understand your risk because early detection and treatment can prevent serious complications.

With nearly 10 percent of Americans struggling with diabetes it’s likely you or someone you know is one of them. In honor of National Diabetes month here’s what you can do: donate, educate and advocate.

Every November we celebrate Veterans Day a day meant to honor the men and women who have served in our military. With our neighbors Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, there are many active military professionals and veterans living in our community. These men and women signed up to serve and we believe the least we can do is thank them for their service through our compassionate service.

As our veterans age, the team at Midnight Sun Home Care is committed to helping. We are a preferred Veterans Administration (VA) vendor and have good working relationships with local social workers. We also work with the American Veterans Care Connection, an organization helping those who might qualify for the VA Aid & Attendance benefit, which provides in home care for our vets.

Our veterans have served our country and now it’s time we serve them. These brave men and women have fought for our freedom and they deserve freedom of their own. In home care allows people to remain in their home but get the extra help they need.Our veterans have served our country and now it’s time we serve them.
