  • 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

    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.
