Intriguing way of looking at the Sandwich Generation issues

ElderCare

I've been reading several articles lately about errors that have been made by various doctors. Sadly, it does happen. Doctors are just as human as the rest of us. I'm so grateful that most of the time, their advice is great, but no one is perfect. Thus we shouldn't be surprised to learn that statistics are showing 17%-30% of patients who are diagnosed with Alzheimer's are misdiagnosed!

This is important for our aging parents – and for ourselves as well - Heart Disease Symptoms in Women

Caring for the Caregiver

Do you love those yummy cheese and tortilla dips, like I do? I haven't tried this, but if it's half as good as this gal says, it would sure make a great afternoon snack for caregivers and carees. 

If you have a healthy salad first, like this one, you can enjoy double helpings of those great chips and dip. :)  

Grandparents and Grandkids
