It is important to give back when you have the resources to. Spring Hills is grateful to have the opportunity to give back to our local communities and contribute healthier living. At Spring Hills, we take cardiovascular disease very seriously and have just recently launched a Cardio-Pulmonary program of our own. What the American Heart Association is doing is near and dear to our hearts and we are proud to have the opportunity to collaborate with them.
The American Heart Association
The American Heart Association is an incredible non-profit organization in the United States that funds cardiovascular medical research, educates consumers on healthy living, and fosters appropriate cardiac care in order to reduce deaths and disabilities caused by cardiovascular disease and strokes. The Association has done an amazing job since starting in 1924 and has impacted millions. They have raised 4.6 billion dollars that was invested in research funding, reduced 15.1% of deaths caused by heart disease, reduced 13.6% deaths caused by stroke and much more. They have had such an amazing and valuable impact on people’s lives and Spring Hills is really proud of what they have accomplished.
Cardiovascular disease is a group of conditions that involve the heart and blood vessels. Common complications are heart attacks, chest pains, strokes and more. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Nearly 655,00 people die from cardiovascular diseases annually, that’s 1 person every 36 seconds. The alteration of diet and lifestyle can be life changing as well as medications provided by your doctor in order to keep you from experiencing any complications or aid you in not having them again.
Spring Hills Collaboration With American Heart Association
Spring Hills has many locations including 16 in New Jersey alone. We feel that it is imperative that we give back to the community that has served us so well. In working with the American Heart Association, we will be supporting the New Jersey at Health project. The New Jersey at Health project is all about creating a culture of health in New Jersey by raising awareness to healthier lifestyles, ensuring a healthy environment through the Northeast Health Equity Consortium, elevating care, and strengthening the economy. This innovative project for New Jersey is essential to creating a healthier more comfortable living for the community. We also will be sponsoring the American Heart Association’s Stocking Healthy Pantries initiative where we as our own community at Spring Hills will be encouraged to donate heart healthy food items to local food banks in order to stock people shelves with nutritious foods and encourage healthier lifestyles.
As a sponsor of the American Heart Association’s Heart of New Jersey campaign, Spring Hills is donating $25,000 towards the New Jersey at Health project. With this collaboration we are excited to also be invited to 2021 Heart of New Jersey Heart Ball digital experience on June 3rd. This event is important to AHA and for the past 50 years has been a huge part of raising funds to support their mission to education, research, and save lives. Spring Hills Senior Communities is a proud local sponsor of the American Heart Association of New Jersey and will continue to do everything we can to create a healthy environment for not only our New Jersey buildings but in all of our communities across the United States. We feel empowered to serve and educate people.
