Tips for Peace on Earth (at least in your home) during the holiday season:

1. Spend some time remembering some shared good moments, preferably over a cup of your favorite grog or even lemonade.

2. Employ Active Listening, which, according to Wikipedia, is: a communication technique that requires the listener to feed back what they hear to the speaker, by way of re-stating or paraphrasing what they have heard in their own words to confirm what they have heard and, moreover, to confirm the understanding of both parties.

3. Yelling is never a good communication device unless you are falling out of a plane or lost on a mountain top.

4. A well-timed hug and/or well-meant thank you go many miles toward mutual understanding.

5. Do take time to hold the Caregiver Board of Directorsí Meetings. After all, the goal of all members in your personal care organization should be the same: Providing the best possible care for your loved ones.
