CAREGIVING:

I’m Hungry, I’m Starving. An excellent article from Alzheimer’s Reading Room .

Important reminder from Dale Carter of Transition Aging Parents : June 12 is Digital TV Transition Day. If you have an aging parent, be sure to check all of their TV sets.

Encouragement: Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the lord.

Check out Rest Ministries on how you can really celebrate your senior citizen dad this year – on TV! It’s definitely one of the best Father’s Day gift ideas I’ve seen.

Here’s a sweet story of loving caregiving – From Pastor to Caregiver .

Then read an interesting article written by that caregiving husband as he talks about one aspect of his life as he and his wife deal with her Alzheimer’s Disease.

This looks like it it would be a good resource for caregivers – an intuitive group calendar to help coordinate caregiving help.

The economic Downturn Puts a Chokehold on Those Caring for Family Members by John Leland of the New York Times.

If you missed  the HBO series on Alzheimer’s Disease , the Eldercare Support Group has it.

GRANDPARENTS:

Here’s an excellent resource for your grandkids’ homeschooling program .

Biblical Holidays is another useful site to check out for homeschooling supplies .

The government has a variety of ways to help grandparents caring for grandkids . I have to wonder, though, how much will get canceled due to the economy.

Looking for something new to read to your grandkids this summer? My grandkids and I have been enjoying reading The Boxcar Children .

Encouragement – Casting all your care upon God; for He cares for you.

Do you have a new grandkid on the way? A great gift for their parents was just published – Consumer Reports Best Baby Products.

SANDWICH GENERATION:

Good information for caregivers about unnecessary medical tests AND Achilles tendon ruptures!

Welcome to a Taste of New England Food. Yummy resource for those caregivers who love to cook !

Secret Hiding Place is a great article by Lynn Mosher with an adorable picture. It definitely encouraged this Sandwich Generation caregiver’s heart and I hope it will yours as well.

Be sure that your business emails have all the necessary contact info to help readers reach you. Missing information can mean lost opportunities. Even if we are not “in business,” as caregivers, we often do send out “business” emails to doctors, therapists, etc . Contact information in those situations is just as vital.

Study Shows Vitamin D Helps Brain Speed Up Information Processing. Hmm, I need to add more Vitamin D to my Baby Boomer Generation brain. It definitely needs a bit of speeding up. Of course, Pepsi works wonders, too. 🙂

Encouragement – Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
