Daily Living Made Easier

Twitter is always a terrific resource for the Sandwich Generation, and this week is no exception:

SENIOR HOME CARE GIVERS:

Cold Sore Virus Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease.

Cancer drug may improve memory in Alzheimer’s patients.  Per @ParkinsonsInfo

Here’s a lovely example of sisters, with one providing senior home care for the other.

Years Later, Divorce Complicates Caregiving.

CarePathways has provided a great Senior Home Care Checklist.

GRANDPARENTS:

If you have a grandchild with autism or sensory integration disorder, you might enjoy one of the AMC-Autism Society Sensory Friendly Films. The next one will be Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in select AMC theatres on September 10.

SANDWICH GENERATION:

Eliminating Clutter Gives New Retirees a Clean Break.

Live Longer through Flossing. Another great site from @Carebuzz. And how’s this for perfect timing, along with another of my favorite ways to save money. I just spotted a website with coupons for those cool little floss sticks that make it easier to floss. I recently discovered they even have extra thin ones to for those with tight teeth and sensitive gums!

Facebook posts may open doors to burglars!  With Baby Boomer Generation women being one of the fastest growing Facebook users, this warning really hits home for us! Not only that! The same can be true for Twitter, blogs, and even leaving comments at another site. It’s probably best to write about a vacation AFTER you return.

ChristianAudio is giving a free audio New Testament Bible this month. It’s the God’s Word translation. This is perfect for busy senior home care givers to keep up with Bible time, even when you’re on the run!

    Hi Kaye,

    I was reading your blog and saw the article, “Cancer drug may improve memory in Alzheimer’s patients”. I thought you might be interested in the New Medicines in Development for Older Americans report.

    There are currently 91 medicines in the pipeline to help the millions of American adults suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. All of the medicines are either in clinical trials or awaiting review by the Food and Drug Administration. One of the potential medicines for Alzheimer’s disease has two mechanisms. It blocks the production of beta amyloid protein, which forms plaques in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients and is thought to be the cause of Alzheimer’s, and the medicine also inhibits the degradation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is thought to improve memory. A report by National Institutes of Health researchers indicates that the medicine may improve Alzheimer’s symptoms and may also interfere with the progression of the disease.

    Detailed information on the 91 medicines in the pipeline for Alzheimer’s disease can be found in the full report.

    Well I think it is awesome that people are actually doing something to try to make awareness to these diseases. Too bad it’s already a little too late and there are already thousands of people already in alzheimers care facilities . But I am happy to know that we are now working towards helping all those people and making it a better, more caring society.
