A Brief Medical History of Mr Uzoma Ogueri

Mr Uzoma Cyril Ogueri is 60 years old, a retired civil servant. He was diagnosed of hemorrhagic stroke 4 years ago (26th October 2015). This affected his right limbs. He was placed on anti hypertensive medications and was taken to a Nursing home in Ejigbo on September 4th, 2019, however, the quality of care given to him declined and hence the need to take him back home. He was taken home on the account of a reaction which left his thigh and stomach with blisters and sore after he washed his clothes with a soap on 12th December, 2019. His health condition has resulted in him being aggressive and depressed and has refused to take his medications.

I appeal for support to help transfer my father to a better nursing home that provides quality care and offers Physiotherapy services

Healthy Eating & Holidays !

The holidays can be a tough time to stick to healthy eating goals. But if your traditions involve baking, a few simple ingredient changes can help you cut some of the sugar, fat, and calories – without sacrificing the taste. This year, make some new baking traditions by adapting your family recipes with these tips:

  • Substitute whole-wheat flour for up to half of the white flour called for in the recipe.
  • Make muffins using oatmeal, bran, or whole-wheat flour.
  • Reduce the fat by ¼ (if a recipe calls for 1 cup of oil, use ¾ cup). You can also reduce the sugar by ¼.
  • If making sweet breads, such as banana bread or zucchini bread, cut the oil in half and replace with an equal amount of applesauce, mashed banana, or even canned pumpkin.
  • If a recipe calls for nuts, use half the amount and toast the nuts (whole, not chopped). This intensifies the flavor and saves on calories.
  • Replace half the eggs with egg whites, using 2 egg whites per egg. (If a recipe calls for 2 eggs, use 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites.)
  • Grease the pan with non-stick spray instead of butter.
  • Substitute evaporated skim milk for whole milk or cream.
