Traffic Camera
I was driving when I saw the flash of a traffic camera. I figured that my picture had been taken for exceeding the speed limit even though I knew that I was not speeding.
Just to be sure, I went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed. I began to think that this was quite funny, so I drove even slower as I passed the area once more, but the traffic camera flashed again. 

I tried a fourth and fifth time with the same results and was now laughing as the camera flashed while I rolled past at a snail's pace.

Two weeks later, I got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt.

5 Early Warning Signs of Pneumonia in Older Seniors                  
Many of the tell-tale signs commonly associated with pneumonia in adults under the age of 65 are often not present in older adults. Older adults often have fewer and more mild symptoms, so we have to look for other signs.

A Satisfied Client's Review:

"It was wonderful. I couldn't ask for a better group of people to work with. My dad had just come out of a rehab, so Victoria [our aide] helped basically getting his meals for him, helping him bathe, getting around the house, and making sure he wasn't going to get into trouble. She also went to the doctor's appointment with us to help me with him. She did anything and everything that my dad needed done. He was not comfortable at first because he has been a widower and it was unusual to have someone in the house; however, after awhile, they got along quite well. They knew what was needed done, and they did well. They were wonderful."
--Wendy, Ewing, NJ

Our "Angels", all certified home health professionals , are ready to provide assistance with the activities of daily living to seniors, the disabled, those recovering from surgery, and to those who are simply frail.
