  • 5 Steps to Maintain Your Independence at Home

    5 Steps to Maintain Your Independence at Home

    Maintaining independence at home as we age is a crucial issue. After all, I haven’t met anyone who volunteered happily to go into a nursing home. But by maintaining our health; both our physical and mental health, this allows us to enjoy both freedom and our own independence as we age. So what are some things that can be done to help in maintaining our independence; in our own homes, and our independence as we get older so that what I wrote isn’t just a trite phrase?
  • Using Home Care to Help the “Sandwich” Generation

    Using Home Care to Help the “Sandwich” Generation

    Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day for the sandwich generation. Not only do you have kids to raise, but your parents need your help now too. Your time is being spent running between houses and people trying to make sure that everyone is healthy, happy, and safe. Sometimes it just gets to be too much, and that is when home care can help.
  • Popularity of Aging in Place

    Popularity of Aging in Place

    You and your spouse are getting older, and you find that the topic of “aging in place” is coming up more frequently in conversations with each other and friends. (I still prefer to call it "Living in Place".) You now have concerns about making your home fall safe, and you want control of your own life in your own home, not depending on a family members. So what can you do to make aging in place a viable option for you?
  • Caring for Your Aging Parents Long Distance

    Caring for Your Aging Parents Long Distance

    Realizing that our parents are getting older is a hard fact of life. We think of our parents as being infallible and always being there for us. But what happens when there are signs that our parents are getting frail or are starting to lose their memory? When we have to start being there for them and we live an hour away or maybe in a different state, how do we take care of them? We will have to become a “long distance caregiver.” So how do we handle this challenge of being a caregiver from long distance?

    Is Raising Children Similar to Helping Your Aging Parents? [Part 2 of 2]

    We did it all as parents, but, hopefully, most of us did not do it alone. We reached out to our family and friends when we needed help. We may have had Grandma or Grandpa over to watch our kids or we may have had a neighbor pick them up from school. We sent our kids to day care when we had to work, hired babysitters for date nights, and carpooled with other parents when we could. As our children transitioned from teenagers to adults we reached out to our parents and friends for help and advice.
  • Rolling on... Modern Wheelchairs Provide More Freedom than Ever

    Rolling on... Modern Wheelchairs Provide More Freedom than Ever

    I recently had the opportunity to see Annie on Broadway in NYC. I've seen it several times and this last performance did not disappoint. However, this time I noticed something that I had not really paid any attention to in the past... FDR's wheel chair. It looked similar to the one in the picture on the right and didn't seem particularly comfortable.
