Thirty years ago, a core group of individuals passionate about hospice care connected to create what would ultimately become Carroll Hospice. In this season of giving thanks, and in celebration of three decades of providing end-of-life care, we reflect on three things that have made us successful through the years:
Finding a primary care physician may be the most important thing you do for your health. In fact, research shows that patients who see a primary care physician have, on average, 33 percent lower annual health care expenses and a 19 percent lower mortality rate than patients who don’t.
After a loved one dies, we may feel a mix of emotions—sadness, relief, guilt and regret, to name just a few. These emotions are typical. But, as a caregiver of that loved one, we may find ourselves wondering “what now?”
Are you exercising, eating the right foods and still struggling to maintain your weight? Sleep deprivation may be impacting your weight loss goals. If you’re not getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night, a lack of sleep may be affecting your waistline.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a gastrointestinal disorder in which abdominal discomfort or pain is associated with a range of symptoms. It affects an estimated 10 to 15 percent of the U.S. population.

Did you know that volunteering can be good for your health? Yes, knowing you’ve helped someone may leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling inside, but it can actually enhance your well-being too.
