Great Family Visit

Hi everyone
..

This personal post is just to let you know why this month’s downloads will probably be late. I’ve just returned from a visit to NZ to celebrate the birthdays of my sister and my brother; both milestone anniversaries, but I won’t say exactly how many years! (You’ll get a fair idea from my photo in the blog header – I’ll just say one is older than me and the other younger)
..

The other highlight of the trip was meeting the new babies in the family since my last visit, 3 little boys, one 8 mnths, one six months & the third on just 4 months old (all born to children of my siblings). I wish my own youngest grandson (14months) could have been there too to meet his cousins and play.

I just have to add a video, they were so cute.

Caring for Elderly Relatives

As I age myself I’m finding many of my friends are facing the problem of how best to care for elderly parents. Nothing is worse than the call from neighbours of your elderly mother or father to say that there has been an accident or illness and your parent has just gone off to hospital again.

When you are the only one of your siblings ineldercare_resource the same town as your mother, father or other relative, much of the care may fall to you and sometimes it just seems to get to be too much. Even unfair.

When it comes to eldercare, it is very important that you are prepared before you are facing critical decisions. Educating yourself about the options available to your parent before the fact will allow you, your siblings and your parent reach the plan of action for his or her situation.

The ebook “How to Take Care of Those Who Took Care of You” is an excellent Eldercare resource and will answer your questions and even some you hadn’t thought of yourself.
