From The Editor

Gary Barg - Editor-in-chiefHear Ye, Hear Ye  

The May/June issue of Today’s Caregiver magazine will cover one of the most important issues we face as family caregivers – hearing loss and the reluctance to admit that hearing loss exists when we are faced with it.  Don’t look so smug. I am talking about us as much as I am talking about those for whom we care.  It is really befuddling since we easily accept glasses and contact lenses and will use mobility equipment when necessary...read more

Sharing Wisdom

From Sher in CA

My mother has Alzheimer's disease and is currently mobile. We purchased two security alarm door mats that we put next to her bed. We have covered them with small rugs so she is not aware of them. The alarm monitor is placed in my bedroom. At night, if she gets out of bed, the alarm alerts me and I am able to go to her room to assist her with her needs. This allows me to reduce the potential fall risk and gives me the peace of mind to have a restful sleep.

From Stephanie in GA

I have found some encouraging scriptures that have helped me when I was so tired, all I wanted to do was scream. Reading the Bible gives me the courage, power and strength to have patience. The scriptures that I keep close and near to my heart are 1 CORINTHIANS 13:7, 8. They talk about love and endurance. Stay strong.
