With the close of 2012 and emergence of 2013, the next few days reminds us of the importance of caring for our elderly loved ones with resolutions of assessing our favorite seniors’ health, nutrition and overall quality of life. This time of year also signals the importance for caregivers to take care of themselves; take that much-needed vacation or get that relaxing spa treatment you’ve been meaning to get for months. After all, there’s nothing like a new year to start from a clean slate and make sure everyone is rejuvenated!
We at A Place for Mom hope that everyone has enjoyed a a relaxing and family-filled holiday season. December 21st, 2012 didn’t bring the end of the world, as the Mayans predicted; so now is an excellent time to reflect on your family and your life and how to make 2013 a happy and successful time for your family. Do any of you need physicals? Is there something fun or exciting you’ve always wanted to do? Well carpe diem—there’s no time like the present!
Here are a couple articles to reflect on from this past week:
