VANDALIA — Brenda Augsbach, a nurse at Miami Valley Hospital (MVH), was the featured speaker at the May 11 dinner meeting of the Vandalia Lions Club. The subject was Healthy Aging For Seniors.
As the Lions meet at Cassel Hills Golf Course, she appropriately used golf as an example of keeping fit both physically and mentally through exercise, stimulate concentration, flexibility and balance, memory, promoting restorative sleep, connecting with other people, and enjoy scenery.
Some related comparisons were made like golf (practice long game); Seniors (have a living will); both golf and health (go to a Pro for help).
In closing, she described the Elder Life Program at MVH which is a volunteer service to promote a safer and more enjoyable stay for older adults. Volunteers work closely with Nurses and Elder Life Specialists. For more information on this volunteer program call (937) 208-2879.
