SENIOR LIFE

Does Mom Need Help or Do I?

The old saying “you don’t know what you don’t know” often applies to those who realize that they or their parent’s life is becoming increasingly difficult as the effects of aging sets in. Challenges with activities of daily living, memory, health and social interaction can make the desired lifestyle difficult to maintain. But, without prior experience dealing with aging transitions, none of us know how to research, understand and make decisions about the best options for the next phase of our lives or the lives of our aging loved ones.

Meet Sean Furey: Niagara County’s Supermodel

Niagara County Deputy Sean Furey’s partner hails from the Eastern European country that has been known to produce the most “supermodels.”  The 85 pound rich sable colored German Shepherd with Czech lines is a rock star in his own right.  Although Vedder was not by Deputy Furey’s side last summer when he along with a group of volunteer firefighters, City Police and fellow deputies rescued a man with onset dementia who had wandered from his home 11 days earlier.  Continue reading

Chocolate was tagged a drink for royalty during Aztec times according to Montezuma (3).
