Twitter Tuesday – Doesn’t that have a nice ring to it? I thought I’d give that a try on a regularly irregular basis (irregular – sounds like a caregiver, doesn’t it ). Here are the latest tips, hints, and tweets from my Twitter microblog:
TODAY is the LAST day to make changes to the Medicare Plan for you or your aging parents. If this is something you need to do, put it first on the list (followed quickly by following yesterday’s info about the possible Conficker attack on our computers tomorrow!) Thanks to @MedicareMadeEZ for the heads up.
@alzheimers98 shared this sad article of a desperate act from a weary caregiver. If you are involved in long-term caring for elderly parents or others and find yourself in a difficult situation, do make sure you are letting others help you. Please look for ways to talk about the situation as well. And if someone you know is dealing with this, be sure to pray for them often and reach out to them even if they act like they don’t need help.
If you are interested in writing an article for the next Seniors and Boomers carnival, which will be hosted right here at SandwichINK , just go to the Seniors and Boomers Carnival site and fill in the form. We’d love to see lots of submissions!
If you’re a political junkie or just like seeing what our government is doing about caregiving needs, grandparent rights, etc., you might find TweetCongress of interest. There you can find out what representatives are on Twitter. Even if you don’t have Twitter yourself, you still might want to check it out. They have the tweets of all the representatives who do use Twitter, right on their site. Thanks to @daccarte for that info.
I loved this statement by @alessandraco – If you think you may be too small to make a difference, then you’ve never been in tent with a mosquito.
By the way, in case you think Twitter is only for the young, the latest stats by Nielson shows that 35-49 year olds make up the biggest piece of the pie with 25-34 and over 55 year olds practically tied! Thanks to @dhollings for that update.
A caregiver, including those members of the Sandwich Generation caring for elderly parents, commonly lives a life of self-sacrifice and it’s a great way to live. Here’s an example of it to the max: A surgeon suffered a heart attack while he was in the middle of brain surgery. He finished the surgery, in spite of the heart attack, and saved his patient’s life! “Both doctor and patient are recovering.” @Mike_elgan provided that interesting article.
Words of Encouragement – No One is like You, O Lord, and Your Name is mighty in power.
Did you know that one member of the never-aging baby boomers generation retires every 60 seconds. WOW!!! Per @lorireed
Words of Encouragement – It is God Who arms me with strength!
That’s all the Tweets for Tuesday. Have a great week!
