As a family caregiver, even with the help of family, friends, and respite care, trying to keep everything organized and prepared can get complicated. There’s a lot on your plate—managing medication, scheduling appointments, tracking health information, organizing documents, and more—all while caring for your parent or family member.
The digital era is upon us. With constant technological advancements, the world is more connected than ever. In the palm of your hands, you can have a powerful device that gives you access to friends and family around the world, information, and more. Not only can these digital tools connect us, but they can also help to improve our lives.
The internet is a great way to stay connected with family and friends, shop, read current news and events, and access pertinent information. However, as with any new tool or technology, it’s essential to be safe and informed.
If your parent or loved one lives in another city or state, whether at home or in a senior living community, the holidays can be a difficult time if you aren’t able to spend them together. While nothing can compete with their physical presence, there are items that can help bridge that gap.
As you get older, you may find that maintaining your home has become more difficult, or maybe you’re ready to start your retirement with a change. Senior living communities are growing in popularity across the country - offering older adults maintenance-free living, social interaction, and more.
