Memory in a Flash

memory flash cardsIn Los Angeles senior care centers, in senior’s homes and within the senior community, keeping the mind active is an important senior activity. The brain, just like any other part of our body, needs to be exercised to stay in top physical condition.  Many seniors, who once were beyond overloaded with remembering things on a daily basis, find that it not often is they exercising their memory muscle without a conscience effort.  Some flash cards are specifically designed with seniors in mind.  Seniors suffering from Dementia and Alzheimer’s, who are using these specialized flash cards, may have an increase in memory and brain function.

Taking the First Step to Aging in Place

Walk in bath tubs | Taking The First Step to Aging In PlaceAging in place in your San Jose home is all about taking the first step, into a walk-in bathtub that is! Some seniors don’t realize how quickly things can change.  One day you are fine to step into and out of the bathtub and it seems like the next you are not able to maneuver that way. Most of us take for granted how limber and agile we are when we are in our younger years.  As we age, we are finding that things that were once mindless and easy to do require a little more effort and even sometimes some assistance.  To age in place, it is important to have all of the necessary tools to be safe and still get around as easily as possible.

Sunny Days for San Diego Senior Care

Senior living without abuseIt is important that your elderly loved one enjoy all of the sunny days of their golden years without the worry of abuse. All too often we hear and read about in the news our seniors being taken advantage of, treated badly and abused.  It is time to take a stand.  The best thing you can do is pay attention to those you love and be a safe haven.  Their concerns may not always resonate the loudest or elder abuse may just be a passing thought, but to be conscience of the possibilities is the best way to combat a potential problem.  Speak up for those you love.  If you do not appreciate the level of senior care in which your senior aged loved one is receiving, take a stand and be heard.  You may need to be the voice that the people hear and get the concerns out there for your loved one.  Our seniors worked hard, endured much and often have been through struggles in their lives and they should be able to enjoy happy days in their later years.  Remember that evil exists everywhere, even in sunny San Diego.
