Hurricane Season officially runs from June 1 through November 30- and stretches from the Florida Keys to the top of Maine.  Putting together a hurricane plan is tedious but vital, especially for aging relatives.  It makes the pre and post storm days more manageable and less stressful.  Now is the time to prepare and stock up.

There’s no shortage of gourmet meal delivery services to choose from – they seem to be the new, new thing. But luckily for us, there’s one serving our south Florida area that is exclusively intended for older individuals and it’s called Martha’s Senior Gourmet. I think it’s a brilliant concept – for three reasons.

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?

It’s Medicare Open Enrollment time (October 15 - December 7)!  Maybe it’s because many of us are nearing Medicare age,  that I’m receiving many calls on how to select a Part D Drug Plan.  I thought I’d lay out a step-by-step guide on how to go about it.

The Association of Long Term Care Planning (ALTCP.org) has put together a list of tips for visiting parents in Long Term Care Facilities.  Their list was generated by 20 "experts" in the field and I'm thrilled to be part of this group. The tips range from communicating with your family member, to understanding the nuts and bolts of the facility. I think you'll find each and every tip informative and valuable. While some pertain to a solely residential facility setting, others are just great general caregiving tips as well.
