    Be Proactive about Community

    Be Proactive about Community

    The real estate mantra of “Location, Location, Location” is certainly apropos for our discussion of where we choose to age. The environment in which we live has a direct bearing on how well we age. Everything from the climate to available services impacts the quality of life. The environment we enjoyed in our youth may prove problematic or undesirable as we age. Better to realize this sooner rather than later…and thus make the needed decisions to end up in a location that serves us well.

Have you reflected on your preferences for medical care? Do you know what your family and friends would want WHEN something happens?

    The Risks of Resistance

    The Risks of Resistance

    Today, I want to chat about the risks of resistance. Resistance to asking for and receiving help. Whether a caregiver or care receiver, resistance to assistance is alive and well. However, this common reaction typically does not serve us well.

    What Does It Mean?

    What Does It Mean?

    Today, I want to chat about how we understand the journey of caregiving - the meaning of illness and aging. As caregivers and care receivers, it’s important to recognize the meaning we attribute to illness and aging and how meaning informs and influences the decisions we make about options of care.
