Introduction. Now is a good time to give your subscribers an overview of what they can expect to see in your email.
"I'm a man. I don't need these women dressing me."
Dad's is tired of women "telling him what to do." And the care aides in memory care do tell him, "Carmelo, you have to _____."
The care aides are all women.
I can understand. As a woman, would I want men always showering me, dressing me, feeding me?
Dad was fed up. He grabbed the care aide's hand. Her fingers got twisted. Now she is "out on disability."
Of course, now we'll be paying for a "higher level of care," higher than $11,000 a month. I requested that the 1 male care aide in the entire CCRC come by to help my father shower 2x a week. They'll "see what they can do."
Dad's doing the best he can, it must take all his strength.

There's no need to stop skiing at 50, 60 or 70. Many ski resorts have senior discounts and adult ski groups. New equipment makes it easier on the knees too. Klaus Obermeyer (photo) rips it up at 100. I may never has his style, but I can have his smile. #agegreatly #skiing
Researchers from the University of California, Irvine believe that a immunotherapy vaccine could be ready for human trials within the next few years. The potential vaccine has shown success in mice testing. Read up on the latest research #alzheimers
Many trial users drew a line at investing too much in the charade of robot companionship. They feared manipulation, surveillance, and a loss of human care. Some worry that robot care would carry a stigma of being seen as “not worth human company.”
With freshman enrollment down, some universities see incentive in catering to retirees. On-campus senior living facilities are way swankier than any frat house you've been in, and without the beer stench. #seniorliving #lifelong learning
To avoid isolation and loneliness as we age, we all need to continually nurture our "social capital." These assets take the form of relationships that will cushion us from the potential for ending up isolated and lonely in later life.
