How Healthy is your Home?

As I was thinking about potential new blog posts, I explored the SRES Blog for ideas. I was intrigued with their post about healthy homes. The topics of eating right, simplifying, organizing, purging unnecessary stuff and making our homes more healthy seem to come up on a daily basis within my family, friend and coworker groups. It is so important to take a break from the fast paced, crazy world we live in and focus on things that can improve our lives. This post focuses on creating a healthy home.

SRES pointed it’s readers to a website that scores your home health. If you go to this website:

They ask you to answer a series of questions about your home. It only took about 5-6 minutes to go through all the questions. 

I took the quiz and received the results.  As a side note, the email with my Hayward Score went into my spam. I downloaded the report and received my score and the report that gives you general suggestions on how to make my home healthier. I personally found it helpful. It definitely motivated me to take a closer examination of my home and the areas that I could improve and positively improve my family’s health.

SRES Blog post on Caremongering Groups

When I was young and lived in Toledo, Ohio, my mom started a program at our church that serviced the elderly called “Building Linkages among Urban Elderly”. The program connected elderly people with each other to help them with support, companionship, communication of needs etc. At the time, it was phone based. It served a need and was very successful. When I came across this article about Caremongering Groups in Canada, I thought it would be a helpful addition to my blog. Forming social media groups can be applied in many ways.   The article discusses  pandemic related groups, which would be helpful at this time but also I hope this idea inspires you to connect and help seniors who may be lonely and in need. Let this inspire you in your community to make a difference and start a Caremongering Group for our Seniors.

Caremongering Groups

If you’re looking for ways to serve your community and build stronger local connections, consider launching a caremongering site on Facebook. Caremongering is a grassroots phenomenon that has swept across Canada to respond to community needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Facebook sites give people a way to find and assist neighbors in need. Locals post requests for help – grocery shopping, protective masks, medicine pick-ups, and so forth – and volunteers step in to fulfill those needs. Some Caremongering site examples: Kelowna ( Oakville (
