Don't Forget to Leave a Note for Your Grandparents!
(Miramar, Florida) - November 2011 - It's that time of year again when America's senior citizenswill be surrounded by people sneezing, coughing and spreading germs. It happens at the mall,the school concert or the family dinner and those germs could potentially be fatal.

the simplest of reminders, such as a letter, postcard or phonecall, increases the number of seniors going to get their flu shot 
. Our care givers can not only provide those reminders but they can also drive seniors to the doctor or drugstore to beimmunized."Seniors are more likely to get the flu because the body's immune system weakens as it getsolder. The Centers for Disease Control advises flu shots not only guard against the flu but alsooffer protection from flu-related complications such as pneumonia.
