    How I Got My Mother-in-law To Use Her Walker.

    My mother-in-law wouldn't use her walker even after a bad fall which resulted in her breaking her arm. My sister and I made a pretty, fitted pillow for hers. She started using it (probably because she felt guilty after we went to so much trouble lol) Soon, she went into assisted...

    They Are All So Special - Every Songle One

    I have only recently started training in a rest home.  The challenges faced by the elderly on a daily basis are very real.  Since some of their abilities have diminished, and in the process the mind slows down a bit for some.  Learning to slow down and talk at...

    Treasures Of Society

    I really love being a preschool teacher. I run a half day preschool program and it's so full filling. The only draw back is no adult interaction! I miss working with adults. Lol.
