Why Alzheimer's Requires a Higher Form of Compassion

I recently came across the site:, a site in my opinion worth checking out.  If you or a loved one or anyone you are caring for has Alzheimer's, this site is for you. 

I found the above article very important.  Alzheimer's is like no other illness. The mind is a very interesting and special thing.  But when a person becomes confused it can be concerning for all. 

Please let me know your thoughts on this article.

Take care,

One Unintended Consequence of the Baby Boom

As the current crop of baby boomers age, the AARP points out that there will be fewer caregivers available relative to those needing caregiving support in the coming decades. This demographic consequence of the baby boom reinforces the need for adaptive clothing as well as other resources that provide the tools for independent living.

Movement as Medicine

What a good article.  I feel the need to share it.  Dance for Parkinson's Disease.  What a wonderful thing.  But dance is something we all should do.  It is good for the soul!  Even if you can't stand and must sit.  Move your hands and close your eyes and dance.  And if your mobility is limited to no movement.  Close your eyes and dance.  It will be good for your.  Do not let it make you feel sad.  Turn it around.  You can dance and fly by just closing your eyes.  Enjoy!


Challenge the Negative Stereotypes of Growing Older

This excellent article on Aging in Place takes a slightly different angle. It lists 10 proactive ways seniors can remain involved in their community and advocate for the ability to age in place. I especially like the call to action, “Challenge negative stereotypes of growing older….” What better way to challenge the stereotype of a sedentary lifestyle for the elderly than to take a leadership role in the movement to age in place?

Blogs for Info

With today's social networking society finding information is easier than you think. Sign up for blogs, they are a wealth of information.  People who are going through what you are going through can help.  They have ideas that have been tried.  Why reinvent the wheel when you can find it on the Internet.  Join groups in your area.  Check out your local hospital.  Today many hospitals offer free classes in caregiving and dealing with many illnesses.  Also be proactive and seek out information.

Have an easy day.
