Sweet Celebration: The 4th of July

After nearly a year and a half of quarantine, restrictions, fear, and uncertainty, it feels good to step out, take off the mask, and rejoin friends and family. And the timing couldn’t be better, summer is in full swing and this weekend we celebrate the 4th of July–Independence Day. We commemorate this day with fireworks, […]

Memorial Day: A Day to Remember

There are many who never forget. They remember every day, perhaps every moment of every day, the loss and the sacrifice. They wake up and experience the missing piece, the loved one who is no longer waking up beside them or the son or daughter who will never grow old. They don’t need Memorial Day, […]

Celebrate the Nurse in Your Life

When you think of a nurse you know, what word comes to mind? Dedicated. Caring. Hardworking. Compassionate. And as we reflect over the last 14 months living through the Coronavirus Pandemic another word that is sure to come up is ‘brave’. Nurses across the country have proven to be the backbone of our healthcare institutions. […]

The Importance of Family-Centered Home Care

Written By Francesca Robinson, MA |

In order to meet […]

Tackle Your Next Home Organization Project with Confidence

It wasn’t until I lived in the northeast that I began to really anticipate spring. My daily routine consists of checking the weather channel for the next burst of warmth and sunshine and planning my schedule accordingly. Let’s just say I was very spoiled living in Florida and took warmth for granted! And with the […]

How to Cultivate Healthy Sleep Habits

Blustering 40-50 mph winter winds shook my window panes. I lay awake listening to the wind howl outside my window.  Normally, I’d roll over and be back to sleep, but lately, those middle-of-the-night wakings mean I’ll toss and turn for an hour or two. Sleep, getting enough of it, can seem like a never-ending battle […]

“I can help.”

An elderly couple walked into a lab testing center where I sat in the waiting room. They unbundled many layers of large coats and stood waiting for some type of assistance that I knew would not come. An ipad stood in front of the closed window and there wasn’t a receptionist waiting behind the window […]

How to Prepare for a Snow Emergency

Currently, the Northeast is bracing for a winter storm. As I make preparations, mainly making sure I’m stocked in snacks and hot cocoa, my mind turns to the most vulnerable and the added layer of difficulty and danger that is faced when a winter storm hits. The best recommendation is to prepare in advance as […]

Combat Loneliness during a Pandemic

“Loneliness and social isolation in older adults are serious public health risks affecting a significant number of people in the United States and putting them at risk for dementia and other serious medical conditions,” states the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
