A little television lingo for you. Many of you know what a tripod is, a three-legged stand that support a camera. Now, think of the cameras as your overall health. One leg being diet, the other exercise, and the third is sleep. If you don’t feel like you’re doing well in that area, fear not, there’s help. DelmarvaLife’s Katie Zarrillii stopped by Sleep Number in Salisbury to learn how a personalized bed might just be a dream come true.
A newly constructed home doesn’t necessarily come without problems. That’s why it’s important to make sure it passes inspection. Robert Axselle, general manager with Amerispec Delaware talks with us about why a home inspection can give you that priceless peace of mind. It’s peace of mind that comes with the 4 phase inspection plan as part of the protection package from Coastal Life Delaware.
It’s been a little more than four months since the ribbon cutting on the Macky and Pam Stansell House of Coastal Hospice in Ocean Pines. The region’s first residential hospice care facility provides care to patients with life-limiting illnesses who are no longer safe at home or who need more care than a family can safely provide. It took years of fundraising to purchase and renovate the building that was originally intended as a clubhouse in a residential community. That fundraising continues. Right from the start, the Stansell House fulfilled its purpose as we find out from family members of the first patient admitted to the facility.
