I have been a resident at The Barrington for several years and I am a widow. I am happy here; never lonely, very safe, with friends and a caring staff.
5 Super Hero Foods Back
Life is super hero training and we have the five super hero foods you need to lead a healthier lifestyle! You are constantly being told to eat your fruits and veggies but the emphasis needs to be on these super hero foods so that you do not have to sacrifice flavor and can reap the benefits as soon as possible. Here we go:
- Cauliflower: If you on the Internet or Facebook lately, you know that cauliflower is al the rage! This is one of the highest vegetables in vitamin B & C, fiber, acts as an anti-inflammatory and potassium, which is extremely important. There is no need to only eat raw cauliflower you can steam it, sauté it or grill it. The benefit of having this vegetable is worth changing your diet! There has been a link to a significant reduction in the risk of many forms of cancer and is essential for optimal digestion, weight loss and heart health.
- Pomegranates not only pretty but they are delicious and are full of antioxidants, vitamin C and potassium. There has been evidence that they help with forms of cancer. There is a compound found only in pomegranates called punicalagin that benefits the heart and blood vessels. It assists in lowering blood pressure if used consistently.
- Sardines: It's amazing that something so little can pack such a punch. Can you believe that sardines are so rich in nutrients that they have been found to help with cardiovascular, eye health, skin and hair and cancer prevention? All these benefits and they contain lower levels of toxins than many other fish.
- Lentils: Lentils are a great source of dietary fiber and iron and folate, which helps reduce the risk of heart disease, increases your metabolism and improves digestive health. Higher fiber helps to regulate blood sugar and is filled with iron and B vitamins.
It is hard to deny that these super hero foods should be ignored. Stay true to your super hero self and eat well to live well.

I came to the Barrington in 2009; this place saved my life. The room my daughter picked out for me overlooks the school and the children who go there. The trees and the surrounding grounds are beautiful. I love to walk outdoors and meditate. I also enjoy our trips to the beaches and parks. I am on the welcoming committee, serve at happy hour, and I go with the Marketing Team to do outreach. This is my home and the staff is my family.
The Barrington in Largo, FL, was recommended to us by A Place for Mom as an option for my parents. My wife and I visited The Barrington for a tour. We were greeted by Sherrie (Regional Supervisor, Tarantino Properties) for our visit. Sherrie was extremely knowledgeable & professional; a great representative for The Barrington.

I love it here. Katie and Amber are the reason I love it here. You both are exactly why I love every day here.
There are just so many activities here that it's hard to choose what to do. I love the poker on Thursday nights. It's been an easy transition for me.
The people that work here are really nice and attentive. I like playing Scrabble and staying busy. Our walking club is really fun. I love being outside. Our walkway around the building is so nice. I always like when they come in and help me get ready for my day in the morning. The Parkinson's program is so nice to get my day started too.
I like the activities here. That's my favorite part. We painted bird houses and now they're in the courtyard. I love the entertainment here. The music is from the right era! I am really happy.
