There's a plethora of compelling evidence demonstrating that staying physically fit prevents or delays many chronic diseases, while at the same time, improving mood and reducing depression and cognitive decline.

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.

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.

Finding a competent, compassionate caregiver can be stressful. Who can you trust when you can’t be there for your loved one?
