Teresa was absolutely fantastic.  She demonstrates care and understanding of the issues seniors face.  Additionally, she was extremely responsive to the urgency of our placement needs.


Did you know?

And Grandma's too...
While we honor all our mothers
with words of love and praise.
While we tell about their goodness
and their kind and loving ways.
We should also think of Grandma,
she's a mother too, you see....
For she mothered my dear mother
as my mother mothers me.

Happy Mother's Day! 

This holiday is especially meaningful to me. Not only am I thankful that my own mother brought me into this world, but for many of you who receive this newsletter, your own mom is the first thing we talked about. I have had the honor and privilege to come alongside many daughters and sons in their quest of caring for Mom. We have shared tears and laughter, triumphs and tragedies, renewed health, and even precious passings. Thank you for sharing your Mother's needs and allowing me to be part of this season with your family.

Warm Regards,

Growing Connections

To grow a more meaningful and healthy connection with an elderly loved one, put on some rubber clogs and head out together to the garden. At any age, gardening is one of the best activities we can do outdoors, several experts told AgingCare.com. It stimulates all of the senses; awakens our connection with nature and with each other; and rewards us with fresh flowers and juicy tomatoes. "It's restorative, even if you have dementia," says Dee McGuire, a horticultural therapist at Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital in Baltimore. Gardening is also an excellent way for aging bodies to get a moderate-intensity aerobic workout, shed calories and stay flexible, according to a Kansas State University study. That's one reason why gardening remains popular with Americans well into their golden years. Indeed, about three quarters of households age 55 or older participated in some form of lawn and garden activity in 2010, according to the National Gardening Association (NGA).

Senior Clutter
If Your Senior Won't Let Go...

Getting rid of stuff is actually a two-step process: sorting and deciding, on the one hand, and disposing on the other. That's according to University of Kansas Professor Dr. David Ekerdt, who is coordinating a "household moves" project to determine the role that possessions play in older people's housing decisions. But convincing seniors can be a challenge.
Seasonal Allergies & The Elderly
Helpful Seasonal Allergy Tips 

Spring is a beautiful time of year in Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. Unfortunately, azaleas aren't the only thing blooming. Ragweed and other pollen producing plants also return in the spring. For seniors, allergy season presents a few unique challenges. The anti-histamines most of us use to help minimize the effects of allergies are not recommended for a large number of seniors. That is because they can increase blood pressure, as well as interact with other medications they may be taking. Pollen can also aggravate existing cardiac and pulmonary conditions. There are ways, however, that you can help the senior in your life safely survive allergy season.
