    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

    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.

    Is Raising Children Similar to Helping Your Aging Parents? [Part 1 of 2]

    Most people know that I am the mother of six children. However, most people don't know that I became a mother in every way womanly possible - vaginal birth, cesarean delivery, adoption, as well as children from a 2nd marriage. God has blessed me with boys and girls in every conceivable way except for delivery by stork!
  • Senior Home Care Franchises - Why I Chose to be an Independent

    Senior Home Care Franchises - Why I Chose to be an Independent

    There is nothing inherently wrong with any of the senior home care franchises. Not surprisingly, I seriously investigated several national franchises before I opened Comforting Home Care. They did offer a head start on marketing and advertising and they certainly had some good accounting tools. I'm a professional nurse, and, frankly, I was more concerned about providing care and less interested in the "business" of home care so these franchises seemed like a good way to get started.

    I'm Here to Break You Out of this Joint!

    The first thing that I noticed was an ornate clock hanging on the wall. There was pleasant music playing in the background when one of the aides introduced herself and escorted me to Rose's room. This rehabilitation facility was clearly a notch above most of the others that I've visited and the staff seemed attentive and friendly.
