New Faces of Retirement

Too many people have an up-and-down flow of friends, especially SUCCESSFUL entrepreneurs and professionals.  Some months they have almost too many things to do, places to go, and people to see, and are WAY too busy, and other months, they’re feeling like famine, wishing they had people to do things with. I’ve been there in the past, and there’s nothing worse than experiencing those two extremes on a regular basis.

By now you probably have heard something about reverse mortgages. This article will give you a brief synopsis. If you are 62 or older, a homeowner with sufficient equity to pay off an existing mortgage or if your home is paid for, then you can benefit from a reverse mortgage. That’s it, it is that simple.

  • What is my parent’s emotional condition?
  • What is my parent’s cognitive level?

How do you develop and attitude of lifestyle fitness in your seniors?

How often have you heard, or read that exercise is important for our senior population? I have to say; we have heard all our lives that exercise and diet are important and it only makes sense that as we age this importance would continue.

What can we do to make sure that our seniors get their exercise? Consider how people are in general. Those who like to exercise do, those who do not don’t. What makes us think that just because we age our feelings about exercise are going to dramatically change?

One key is finding an exercise that is applicable. I am going to discuss our older seniors for the sake of this article as generally speaking, they have the least amount of options. Read the rest of this entry »

Effective family communication to overcome the challenges of family dynamics can be useful to running the elder home care meeting. Once you have planned the family meeting, you must now prepare for potential conflicts prior to the meeting.

Before the meeting begins, state the purpose of the meeting is to come up with solutions to achieve the wishes of your aging loved one. The main goal is to provide quality care in a safe and loving environment and the importance of everyone being involved. Read the rest of this entry »
