HERBS FOR HEALTH MANAGEMENT

Herbs are a foundational root in medicine and health treatments, dating back thousands of years throughout every culture around the world. Modern Western herbalism comes from ancient Egypt. The Greeks developed a comprehensive philosophy of herbal medicine by 100 BCE and the Romans built upon it to create a variety of medical practices, some of which are still used today.

ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE IMPACTS PSYCHOLOGICAL HARDINESS

Psychological hardiness is an individual’s resistance to stress, anxiety and depression. It includes the ability to withstand grief and accept the loss of loved ones. Alternative medicine is a more popular term for health and wellness therapies that have typically not been part of conventional Western medical approaches but are often used along with conventional medicinal protocols.  Coping and dealing with stress in a positive manner play a major role in maintaining the balance needed for health and well-being.

friendships with, things to do and people to connect with. He has lived here for about 10 years. “The move here was a big change at first,” said Victor, “but it was a good change.” He said the staff at Richmond Place has been so kind to him. Even after his lovely wife passed away in 2012, the staff was there for them in that inevitable part of life.


As an independent soul, Victor still enjoys the freedom to go see the city. He still drives to church every Sunday morning. And don’t get him started on how much he enjoys the wonderful food cooked by top-level chefs. Victor says he deeply loves it at Richmond Place and recommends living here if you are looking for a new place to live in the next stage you are in. If you still desire to live a full and active life, let Richmond Place become your new home.


Victor said, “I seek to enjoy every day I have.” What a blessing it is to meet a man like Victor Robinson. We pray this motto will become yours as well. May we all live a full life like Victor.

WHAT WILL PEOPLE SAY ABOUT YOUR LIFE?


That is a big question that we all must wrestle with. Did we live a life in the pursuit of comfort? Or did we live a life of meaning?


Did we rise to the challenges in front of us or scurry away from them?  


We want to introduce you to Victor Robinson. Victor is a Central Kentucky native, born and raised in Jessamine County. He is a man who stepped up to take hold of his life. It was there in Jessamine County that Victor learned what life was all about. It is also where he learned about faith and family – about values that would lead him to rise up when there was a need. For Victor, this meant that the moment he was eligible at age 18 to answer the call, he volunteered to serve in the U.S. Army against the Axis powers of Germany, Italy and Japan. This service would take him on an adventure full of deep trials of valor and pain, causing him to put his life on the line more than once in defense of freedom.


During WWII, Victor was a young man dedicated to fighting against the oppression of the Third Reich, the Nazi German occupation of Europe and much of the civilized world. This local man from Central Kentucky fought courageously, putting his life on the line for those he did not know to recapture their freedom and defend our freedom back home.

A LIFE WORTH LIVING

He was among those who landed on the beach at Normandy on D Day. This courage would help him earn the “Legion of Honor” medal for his part in liberating France from Germany’s occupation. This honor was created in1802 by Napoleon himself to give thanks to and show respect for those who served France. He was wounded and also received the Purple Heart.


Victor returned home in 1945 to marry his loving wife, Imogene. The two of them lived a full and wonderful life together for 66 years. They would be blessed to have a son and a daughter, two grandchildren and two great-granddaughters.


In 1953, Victor decided he needed to continue to serve, so he joined the Fayette Co. Fire Department, blessing his community with over 38 years of service. Victor even rose to the rank of Fire Chief of the Fayette Co. Fire Department until it merged the city and county departments into one.


Life may have slowed down a lot for Victor, now in his 90s, but life is still worth living. He has moved into a new stage of life and is enjoying every aspect of it. His new adventure has him living life to the fullest at Richmond Place Senior Living. Victor says he loves living there because there are so many people to make
