Everyone knows someone with high blood pressure, but how many of us actually know what blood pressure is? Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the artery (big blood vessel) walls as the heart beats. It’s normal for blood pressure to go up and down throughout the day, but if it stays consistently high for a long time, it can damage the heart.
Social connectedness is strongly linked to a person's overall health. To better connect older adults to the community, Lorain County Public Health has launched the Buddy Connect Program. The program pairs volunteers* with people who are 55+ -- participants receive two phone calls per month from their buddy volunteer. Once a month home visits are also available.
