Senior Citizens are Tech Savvy

More than 40% of seniors have computer access and are active online. About 15 million Facebook users are 65 and older. 

Along with social media sites where they can connect with friends and family, older computer users play online games, read news sites, sign up for dating sites, and contribute to sites related to their interests. They are bloggers, survey takers, shoppers, reviewers, photographers, and more.

14 Tips to Ensure a Good Time

Almost everyone looks forward to gathering with family and friends for a backyard barbecue. But if you've been dreading going to one because of your responsibilities as a caregiver, never fear: Both you and your elderly loved one can have a fine time, if you plan ahead.

Top 3 Excuses From Siblings Who Don't Help With Caregiving

Unfair as it may seem, even in families of many adult children, one sibling generally becomes the primary caregiver for the aging parents. In many families, such as mine, this person lives the closest to the parents and/or is most suited to the task of caregiver. In my case, it was both. This fact didn't keep my sister, who lived about 50 miles away, from coming to town nearly every weekend to see our parents and help me out. However, in some families, this relatively short distance would be enough of an excuse to keep the "caregiving" efforts of the distant sibling to an occasional, convenient visit. Many caregivers ask how to respond to siblings who, after being directly and distinctly asked for help, either skirt responsibility with excuses, or become outright nasty if they are asked for assistance in a direct manner. Let's look at a few examples and contemplate responses.

Overheating & Seniors

No matter what your age, there's nothing fun about sweating out a heat wave. The air gets thick, asphalt turns sticky, and a walk to the corner can feel like an ordeal. But if you're a senior citizen, hot weather can be much more than just a nuisance. The body's natural defenses against heat can break down with age, putting seniors at risk for heat stroke, heat exhaustion, and other serious disorders.
