Stubbins Watson & Bryan August 2019



Mike Bryan

Happy August! As I write this note, it’s actually early July. When I look at the upcoming calendar, I have no doubt that this month will absolutely fly by. Things are very busy here at the office, but we are in the heart of vacation season as well. I’m looking forward to a trip to Florida with my family this month. Isabella and Samantha are excited to see the beach and ocean. By the time you read this in August, we’ll be back and hopefully not too sunburned! As I mentioned last month, I am interviewing various nursing homes, assisted living facilities and home health care agencies and describing more about those agencies in our newsletter. This month, I interviewed Kim Sherfy, admissions/ marketing director, and Heather Hamilton, social services director, with Continuing Healthcare at Adams Lane. Continuing Healthcare at Adams Lane provides rehabilitation and therapy services, skilled nursing, memory care, and long-term care. During our interview, Kim and Heather describe the facility, services offered, social activities, and more.

Whether you’re a runner, a weightlifter, or a cyclist, the twofold feeling that follows a hard workout is the same: pain and exhaustion. Sore muscles can make every movement difficult, and the discomfort that comes with stretching your arms, legs, and back will soon have you hunched over and shuffling around like someone twice your age. Faced with that fate, you have two recovery options: passive or active. Pick the right one and you’ll be back in the gym in no time. So, what is the difference between active and passive recovery? Really, the names say it all. Active recovery means continuing to move, even after a big workout. The day after you challenge yourself with a tough gym session, active recovery entails going for a long walk, trying a low-intensity bike ride, or even doing an abridged weightlifting session with lighter weights. Passive recovery is basically relaxation: It involves resting your muscles before you get back in the saddle. Unless you’re a real fitness junkie, passive recovery probably sounds the most appealing. A day spent lazing around with a book or watching your favorite television programs can be an irresistible prospect when your muscles are aching. In an article for, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Mike Robertson says he opts for active recovery every time. “I’ve been a huge proponent of active recovery for years. Even when I was younger, I realized that if I was sore after a session but got up and moved around the next day, I immediately started to feel better,” he said. ACTIVE VS.
