Slips, Trips and Falling Down, Oct 17

Learn How to Prevent ‘Slips, Trips and Falling Down’ 

Betsy Donovan, PT, presents next ‘Get Healthy Tamworth!’ program

         Falls are an all too common occurrence and millions of adults are affected each year. Falls cause injury, loss of confidence, loss of independence, are one of the leading causes of nursing home admissions, and are even responsible for increased risk of premature death. Falls are largely preventable, and the key to prevention is knowledge.

On Saturday, Oct. 17, from 10 to 11 a.m.  at the Tamworth Lyceum, the Tamworth Community Nurse Association will host Betsy Donovan, president of Mountain Center, a Physical Therapy, Health and Human Performance Company with locations in Conway, Glen and Fryeburg, Maine, who will present, “Slips, Trips, and Falling Down.”

Learn about the risk factors of falls, some of which will surprise you, and learn what you can do to take charge of your health, safety and well-being. The program is one of TCNA’s “Get Healthy Tamworth!” series of monthly programs at The Lyceum in Tamworth Village.

Move toward greater balance,
control and participation in your life

         Mindfulness is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life, a way of taking charge of your life, a way of doing something for yourself that no one else can do for you. Mindfulness is learning to work mindfully and systematically with your own stress, pain, illness and the challenges and demands of everyday life. To restore a balanced sense of health and well-being within yourself requires increased awareness of all aspects of self, including body and mind, heart and soul.

TCNA Annual Meeting – August 19

TCNA Annual Meeting to be held in Runnells Hall

Tamworth Community Nurse Assoc. to hold Annual Meeting at Noon, Wednesday Aug. 19.

The Tamworth Community Nurse Association will host its 2015 Annual Meeting on Wednesday, August 19, at noon, at Runnells Hall in Chocorua.

“You Can Be Happier Now.” 

The TCNA is shaking things up this year by holding its annual meeting at noon versus the traditional evening hour. The community is invited to be guests of TCNA for lunch and a talk by John Doherty, author of the book “You Can Be Happier Now.” He will explain that Aristotle once said, “Happiness is the whole aim and end of human existence,” and Doherty decided he was right. How we should live, how we should treat others, how we should select our life goals were the skills that would determine how happy one was. His study of happiness included the wisdom of religions, neuroscience, psychology and common sense. He found that how to live happily was no secret, but had been taught, preached, and verified by science for years.

Guests will enjoy music by Becky VerPlanck while they mingle with TCNA staff and board members, who will update everyone on TCNA happenings. And remember, it wouldn’t be a TCNA Annual Meeting without scrumptious blueberry ice cream from the Sandwich Creamery!

The TCNA requests an RSVP from anyone who would like to attend this always fun and informative event in order to predict attendance and be sure there is enough blueberry ice cream for all. Need a ride? They can help with that, too. Please call 323-8511 to RSVP or for further information of any sort.
