Caregiver Concerns

Teresa quickly assessed our situation.  She interviewed our mother and provided us with 3 possible facilities.  Out of the 3, we liked 2 of them very much.  Her ability to determine what we needed quickly was appreciated.  Teresa's experience and recommendations made us feel more confident in the decisions we needed to make.

Did you know?

January is the coldest month in the northern half of the world, nature is quiet and the birds travel less. Also, the bears and woodchucks go into hibernation. However, in the southern half of the world, January is the warmest month. During this time, unlike the northern half of the world, animals are active and plants are growing. 


How are we different?


What makes us different from our competitors is that we do not give you a list of facilities to cold call. We research, interview, tour, negotiate cost, and select the best available options for your particular needs.

Happy New Year! January is a time to take inventory, purge the unnecessary, and set new goals. I just got a hearing test (which checked out fine), and am determined to get back to my yoga class. I see several areas that need to be cleared out, like closets and stored furniture. I actually feel good just knowing I am ready to part with this STUFF. Yes, it may be cliché to talk about New Year's resolutions. But, who cares...they are always a good idea. And, when better to start than...NOW! Let's do it!

4 Ways Video Games Are Good For You

Ask your grandkids to pass the video game controller - it's your turn to be youthful.
Although you may scoff at how often your grandchildren play video games, it might be time to join in on the fun. Several studies suggest that video games could be an excellent way to improve memory, mood, and overall longevity.
Often considered to have a negative effect on children's health because it reduces physical activity, playing video games can actually be good for seniors in several ways. . . 

Dating and Seniors
Inside the Dating Scene for Single Seniors
It's never too late to find the man or woman of your dreams. It started with a hello and a smile. It ended with a wedding that included guests from two continents. That's the story of Bruce and Bernadetta Bateman, who found love at the Lakewood Village retirement community in Melbourne, Florida, and got married at ages 76 and 73, respectively. Their story is only one example of how older Americans are pursuing romance and finding the perfect partner, regardless of their age. According to AARP, 45 percent of Americans older than age 65 are divorced, separated or widowed. Meanwhile, a 2013 Pew Research Center study found that 6 percent of Americans between ages 55 and 64 had used an online dating website or app. That may not sound like much until you consider that only 10 percent of 18- to 24- year-olds reported using those sites. However, as the Bateman story demonstrates, older Americans don't necessarily have to resort to high-tech means to find their next soul mate.

Hearing Loss
Why Some Seniors Lose Their Hearing

  Have you had a lifetime of exposure to loud noises? You could be at risk for age-related hearing loss. Key Takeaways - -  Hearing loss is the third most common chronic health condition for seniors. 
-  Risk factors for hearing loss include smoking, a punctured eardrum, or even some medications. 
- Untreated hearing loss can contribute to major social, emotional, and cognitive issues.  
   Do you have difficulty hearing conversations held in a noisy room? Do you have a harder time picking up women's voices than men's? Do you constantly ask others to repeat what they just said?
