Father's Day is a holiday celebrated in the United States on the third Sunday of June each year. On this day, we honor the fathers and father figures in our lives and express our love and gratitude for all the things they have done for us. This year, Father's Day will be celebrated on Sunday, June 18, 2023. It is an opportunity for us to show our fathers how much we appreciate them and to celebrate the bond that we share.
Did you know, Father's Day has an interesting history, according to the Library of Congress and History Channel - it actually started with a Sonora Dodd, who was raised by her father after her mother died in childbirth, was apparently listening to a church service on Mother's Day in 1910 and began to think about all her father had done for her. She decided to make a day to honor dads. Thanks to her dedication and effort, Washington State celebrated the first Father's Day on June 19th, 1910.
On Father's Day, DGI Incorporated wants to express its appreciation to all the dads for their presence, partnership, and perseverance in supporting their child's development. You are amazing...

It's impossible to tell what the coming year may bring, but even in uncertain times, business owners can prepare for potential opportunities. The demand for long-term care services, such as assisted living facilities, is on the rise. This is partly due to the aging baby boomer population and can be seen in the National Investment Center (NIC) report which projects an increase in assisted living units by 37% between 2020 and 2040.
In uncertain times, the senior industry continues to thrive because most adult children make the sacrifice to ensure that their aging parents are cared for. The National Institute of Aging indicates that by 2030 the senior industry will be valued at $140 billion dollars. The senior industry is growing even in times of economic uncertainty.

Eating a variety: In order to reduce the risk of conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease, it is important to have a balanced diet that includes a variety of foods from each food group. When making dietary choices, opt for foods that have low levels of added sugar, saturated fats, and sodium.
As we get older, it's normal to have less energy and not be as nimble as we were in our younger days. But growing older doesn't have to mean being a couch potato! The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say that all older adults, men and women alike, can benefit from regular, moderate physical activity, even if they have medical conditions like arthritis, heart disease, obesity, and high blood pressure.
Stress is a problem that affects all age groups, but older adults are particularly vulnerable. Stress can lead to new health issues and exacerbate existing ones, and can even accelerate the aging process. There are various stress management strategies available for anyone to try, and one does not have to try them all at once. Pick one or two that interest you and are achievable.

Father’s Day is a great opportunity to not only celebrate dad but to recognize the grandparent of the family as well. Grandpa is often the patriarch of the family, so it’s important to find ways to make this day special and celebrate YOU! Give yourself a pat on the back for all of the hard work, energy, patience, and love you have invested in your child.
No matter how much distance is between you and your kids and grandkids, near or far, it is important to take the time to embrace the wonderful grandfather that you are.
Socializing with loved ones can have a positive effect on mental health and should be encouraged. Eating meals with others can also provide physical, psychological, and social benefits.
Making Father's Day special can be a great experience, especially when you take lots of photos and invite some of your extended family. You, your children, and grandchildren can have a great time bonding and even go on a wonderful excursion together.
