      By Michael Drew | July 24, 2017

      How often have you thought about the future? Most younger adults plan for retirement starting sometime in their late 20s, 30s, or hopefully by their 40s.

      Caring for Your Loved One with Alzheimer’s

      By Jessica Lener, MSN, RN | July 21, 2017

      Alzheimer’s Care: When Ronald Regan announced to the world that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 1994, he joined one of approximately 2 million American’s suffering from this degenerative brain disease (Rothman, 2016). A little over twenty years later, we now have more than 5 million people who have been diagnosed and are in various stages of the disease process.

A lot of marketers realize that there is a big need for healthy foods, however, sometimes the claims are slightly over exaggerated. Some items named as healthy can be far from it. Foods that are truly healthy for you will not have a healthy label. For example, broccoli is not going to have a “low fat”, “high in fiber”, “Great source of vitamins”, “gluten free”, label on it because it’s broccoli and everybody knows it’s awesome for you.

In many cases, nothing bad happens, but relying on luck…

      Do You Have a Safety Checklist for Mom at Home?

      By Renato Amorim | June 21, 2017

      Your mother may be in her 70s or 80s and is living alone, and while you may provide some level of support for her from time to time, how or where is she about the various safety risks that exist all around? Most people have a tendency to overestimate their physical abilities, regardless of their…
