Taking prescribed medicine seems like a no-brainer. The instructions are right on the packaging and you create a habit of taking it at the same time every day- perhaps with a meal. That certainly is manageable for someone who takes one pill daily and needs no reminders.

Just last week, my college pals and I reconnected for a reunion over dinner. We picked a restaurant whose menu we knew would please all of our finicky diets. What we didn’t check, however, was the rating of the noise level, which many reviewers now indicate with “noise bomb” icons. This one was off the charts, and even though we are still blessed with good hearing we (and the wait-staff) had to yell to be heard.

Some type of daily exercise routine is so important for our physical as well as emotional well-being.  When creating a care-plan I always encourage my clients to be sure to plan for access to physical activity during the day.  The issues to be sure to address in an exercise routine include flexibility and strength building.  Focusing on these will help to keep you or your loved one safer from falls, help to prevent osteoporosis, and support agility, which diminishes as we age.  If you or your loved one are not interested in going to the gym to get your daily exercise, or

We spent a lot of time worrying about our children as they grew up. Now that they're young adults, it seems that for many of us, our parents are now our focus of concern. Is my mother safe? Did she get home from her doctor's appointment? Did she return home after going to the movies?

The holiday season is upon us, and with it comes the dilemma of finding great gifts for loved ones and friends.  It can be especially challenging to find something special for an older family member or friend who may have everything they need, or think they do.   You may shy away from technology oriented gifts, but older people are often more tech-savvy, and tech appreciative than we might think.  Opening the world of technology to an older pe

I was thrilled to be used as a resource for a recent article by Ana Veciana-Suarez in the Miami Herald on the impact of technology on us as we age.  The article, aptly titled "Technology Will Change How And Where We Age, stresses the importance of staying connected.

Thanks Ana!

If you missed it, take a look. You'll be glad you did.
