Managing Your Chronic Disease

Chronic diseases such as asthma, heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes currently affect more than half of all American adults, with two out of three patients having multiple conditions. The incidence of these conditions is expected to increase, as members of the baby boom generation reach the ages when such diseases become more prevalent.

Traditional care for these chronic conditions has centered on the physician’s role, but a new model of care is emerging - one focusing on patient self-management.

Video Segment: Fire Station Open House

The Hopkinton Fire Station recently invited the public down for an open house. Children and Adults were allowed to check out the equipment and take a look inside the fire trucks. Children got to test out some of the equipment such as the fire hose and stokes basket. I caught up with the organizer of the event Bill Krauss of the Hopkinton Fire Department.

"Want to get to know the public, we want the public to get to know us. We coordinate this week with fire prevention week to raise awareness of fire safety such as smoke detectors, exit plans, stop drop and roll for the kids." "For activities we have fire truck rides, rope rescue demonstration, games with water and a band playing to create a warm atmosphere for their kids and families."

Fran Clark gave us a look at a stokes basket which is used for high and low confined space rescue. "There's 6 members of the Hopkinton Fire Department that are part of the search and rescue team." Clark mentioned that it does not take a whole lot of effort to pick someone up with the basket and many of the children at the open house enjoyed taking a ride in the basket.

The B.A.A. expresses our profound sadness at Mayor Menino's passing, together with our deep gratitude for the magnificent support to the Marathon, the B.A.A. and the hundreds of thousands of athletes who have run in Boston under his watchful eye. He was always one of the first spectators to arrive at the Marathon and the last to leave, including in 2014. He touched the event and the athletes in every way, every year. The race is diminished without him.

Please remember that children may be distracted going door to door or have limited vision due to their Halloween costumes. We urge all vehicle drivers to use extra caution during these hours. We also request parents accompany their children and to use flashlights or have reflective clothing on their costumes.

Please make this a safe and fun night for all.

Get Ready To Sleep In, Daylight Saving Time Ends Nov. 2

There's no need to hit the snooze button on Nov. 2, because the end of daylight saving time will give you that extra hour of sleep you've been craving -- if you live in an area that observes the time change, that is.

Clocks will fall back to standard time Sunday at 2 a.m. Smartphones with automatic date and time settings will make the change for users; but people with analog clocks and watches will have to manually set their timepieces back an hour. (We suggest making the adjustment before bed on Saturday night.)
