How can I make sure my mum feels safe and happy now that she's getting older?

How can I make sure my mum feels safe and happy now that she's getting older?

Could hiring a live-in carer be the solution? My mum is 72 years old.  A young 72, perhaps even a teenage 72 given how much time she spends on whatsapp and facebook.  Like many her age, she spoils her grandchildren and then she spoils them...

When we had an elderly relative have care in her home (UK), it was far from satisfactory. The carers were given less than half an hour each visit, and they had to take travelling to the next elderly persons home, out of that time too. Whilst our elderly loved one was still capable of living at home, but needed some help and support with some aspects of daily living, we positioned a laptop on the table, which ran digital signage software displaying a playlist of family photos, each one with a caption as a reminder of the persons, place or event, a list of what was happening that day, e.g. Linda coming to take you to doctors at 3pm., reminders to take tablets and scrolling messages. We could update the software over the Internet, especially useful if the visiting relative was going to be late. The software helped answer the many repetitive questions such as what time is it, etc.

I don't think we really consider elderly care and options until you find that one of your relatives, normally a close loved one, needs help. You article, Eric, helps to pinpoint some relevant points to consider. Thank you.

Female Heart Attacks

Female Heart Attacks

I received this on my facebook account and thought it would be worth sharing. My mother-in-law died of a massive heart attack, and she may have had some minor ones before the one that caused her death. We were unaware of the information below....

Thanks Bill, there is a lot of info on what to look for if you think you are having a heart attack, but the info is mostly for men. I think this is important for women and men to read so that if something happens people know what to do and will survive.
