BLOOD PRESSURE CHECKS
High blood pressure can be a silent killer making persons at risk for heart problems or a stroke. A simple gift is to ask your parent to have their blood pressure checked. It could be that your suggestion may enable them to live a healthy, long life. Watch Olivet News for blood pressure check dates.
