Mom needed help at home but didn't want a stranger in the house

What do you do when you need help caring for a family member at home, but don't want a stranger in the house?

My mom was in her 50s when we first looked into hiring a home health aide to help her around the house.  Unlike the typical elderly or senior person most home attendants are called to care for, mom was still pretty young, in her 50s then.

For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.
