He’s a good son. How many of us have uttered that phrase while bursting with pride? And, in the next breath: I just wish he lived closer. We all need a “good son” nearby - one who will rush over at a moment’s notice to take us to the doctor, watch the house while we’re away, go grocery shopping, put up hurricane shutters, take the car in for service or even just change a light bulb.

Old age isn’t for sissies. Or for their caregivers, who often juggle full-time jobs, families of their own and other responsibilities. Taking care of an elderly loved one can be an overwhelming, challenging, emotionally draining "job."

Are you worried about your parents' driving, and don't know what to do?  Well, chances are you should be. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, seniors are more likely than younger drivers to be at fault in an accident and their most common violations are failure to obey traffic signals, unsafe turns and passing, and failure to yield the right of way. Sound familiar?

Massage therapy is one of the oldest healing arts and is found in most cultures around the world. There are so many different kinds of massage, that I will only describe some of those that are well known and widely done in the US.

The other day I went to visit a friend who has Alzheimer's Disease at her Assisted Living Facility. She appeared to have declined since my last visit. She was walking very slowly and tentatively, she shut her eyes several times and had to be prompted to open them, and her voice was almost inaudible.

A friend of mine was so infatuated with his impending retirement that he counted the nanoseconds until he could punch out for the last time. His “I can’t wait to do this” list was endless; his vivid images of a stress free life had the rest of us working stiffs green with envy.

And was retirement all that he dreamed of? Not so much. Oddly enough, he's often bored  - and actually misses the office (sometimes). His brain, he jokes, is turning to mush.
