Talking About Touchy Topics With Your Aging Parents

From childhood into early adulthood, our parents were tasked with caring for our physical, emotional, and financial needs. As we matured and grew self-reliant, our parents began to relax their hold on us. We built careers, families, and lives of our own. Now, as adult children, we find ourselves assuming a measure of responsibility for …

Understanding Dementia’s Effects on Your Loved One and Family

The feelings that older adult experiences at the onset of dementia and memory loss—namely frustration, anxiety, and fear—are also felt by family members.

Families need to understand what their loved ones are …

Improve your mind, attitude, energy levels and more through a good night’s sleep

A good night’s sleep is so vital that the average healthy person will spend nearly one-third of their lives sleeping.

Staying educated on the importance of sleep and healthy sleep patterns can …

Finances

Financial recordkeeping done right

Ben Franklin knew a bit about organization and time management—at least, his words suggest as much. He said, “a place for everything and everything in its place.” He also said, “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.” We think both are good advice. Many seniors could benefit from heeding these wise words …
