YOU CAN'T CHEAT MOTHER NATURE

Tuesday, Oct 4, 2016 -- A few years ago, when I was first beginning as a senior move manager, I was in a senior community helping a client move. I came across two elderly women chatting in the hallway. Their conversation seemed to exist mainly of comparing stories of their aches and pains. As I passed by I overheard one woman say to the other, “Getting old is hell!” I often think of these two ladies when something in my own body doesn’t feel quite right. If you find yourself identifying with these women, fear not! There are steps that you can take to mentally and emotionally ease into Mother Nature’s plans for you.

Monday, Aug. 22, 2016 -- A few years ago a woman, who lived by herself, seemed to have all the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. She was forgetting who her neighbors were, having minor accidents while driving, and not taking good care of herself, etc. Friends contacted her adult children, who lived in other states to express their concern. Once they spent time with their mother, her children agreed that their mother most likely had Alzheimer’s, so they placed her in a residential care facility and sold her home to pay for her care.
