We in the north have had the expected amounts of snow so far this winter, although my sympathies go out to you on the east coast who've had far more than your share. But you cope.
That's the way of life - and caregiving. We handle what we're given the best way that we know how. We muddle through. We help each other when we can. Then we move on.
Whether or not to continue the Minding Our Elders newsletter has been a struggle for me over the last two years, and I've handled it the same way that I've handled other decisions in my life. I've thought it through and made a decision that I'll have to live with. After nearly a decade, I'm closing out the newsletter.
We now have so many other ways to communicate through blogs and social media that the newsletter seems to be falling by the wayside for many companies. With some sadness, I feel it's time for me, as well.
I'll miss this bit of communication with you. I'll miss seeing the numbers of subscribers climb. However, time is an issue for me as it is for you. Below I'm giving you a heads-up on methods that you can use to keep up with Minding Our Elders without needing the newsletter.
The easiest way is to subscribe to the blog www.mindingoureldersblogs.com through Feedblitz or just simply bookmark the site.
The main website www.mindingourelders.com will provide other information as well as lead you to the blog.
After the first of 2015, you will be able to subscribe to my work for HealthCentral.com/Alzheimers under my profile on that site.
You can also follow Minding Our Elders on Facebook at Facebook: www.facebook.com/MindingOurElders. I'd appreciate a "like" when you get there :)
On Twitter, my handle is @mindingourelder and on LinkedIn I'm under Carol Bradley Bursack.
So, my friends, I have no doubt that we'll meet again. I hope we meet regularly.
Wishing you Happy Holidays and a fantastic 2015.
