Your parents showed you the world and in return you showed them old age homes ....??? #sammysocialworker#oldage#spreadhumanity#importanceofparents
As a Social worker i witnessed many aged parents who either have been ditched by their own children, or those who have no children to take care of them, and to make a sake of living they themselves lived in isolation in the place they been put by their children. (Old home). As soon as I entered the old age home with my team all the eyes started looking at us expecting something, and some even came to us and start holding our hands and some hugged us. I enquired the caretaker, are they expecting something from us, like cash or food? He immediately said, No. They are expecting the lost love from their children and still hoping that one day their children will visit the home and take them along. Hope that happens soon.
After experiencing this in my own life, I tell you friends "Parents are a treasure that children should guard zealously. Putting them into old age homes must never be the first but always the last option. Treat your parents as assets not liability". Let them feel wanted and not a burden.
Training the oldies has always been challenging and valuable. I have had some good opportunity to personal train almost 12-15 Sexa and Septuagenarians and one Octagenarian in last 8 years & it's so wonderful to train them & make them stronger. .
There is no set rule of training them but a standard modus operandi, always aiming at making them stronger, faster and better from their current state.
The scope of this post is limiting and hence tried to put my point of view as much as possible.
As we age, we tend to lose appetite which could be a major factor in dragging down our immunity, and some times supplements of different multivitamin values are the better option. Here is a compilation of a few such recommended dietary supplements for seniors.

We’re a few days away from wrapping up ‘Older Americans Month’ and boy has it been a rough month for seniors. Physical distancing has isolated seniors, nursing homes have been ravaged by Covid-19, and this pandemic has revealed itself to be quite the ageist one.
This month, I’m celebrating the contributions of seniors across our country and the world. Despite the odds against them, I have learned through my patients that older adults are giving, resilient and lovers of life.
Have you taken the time to appreciate an elder in your life? It’s not too late!
Get ready for another fantastic movie recommendation - a film that has all the good stuff: love, life, friendship and hope. ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ follows 7 British retirees travelling to India who, upon arrival find the supposedly newly resorted hotel that they’ve booked to be much less luxurious than advertised. Nevertheless, the Marigold Hotel begins to slowly charm the tourists in unexpected ways, becoming the trip of a lifetime.

WA Day is a day to reflect and celebrate all the great things about our people, our lifestyle and our culture. So this long weekend, why not get out and enjoy some of those wide open spaces that make WA so special? You don't have to go far - the nature walk trails of Kings Park are just 5 minutes from The Richardson's doorstep and you'll find amazing scenery around every twist and turn.
Happiness is dependent on our state of mind, not our status or what's going on outside of ourselves. It is okay and important to acknowledge when we feel UNhappy, particularly in the caregiving field. Here, Colleen differentiates between sadness and depression as it's important to know when sad thoughts start to overcome our lives.

It is moments like these that are an important reminder to take time and truly listen to others. ❤️ Our Members have amazing stories to tell. Listen to this incredible story from a Member at our community Wellmore of Daniel Island! ⬇️
After a workout with Wellness Director, Erica, Member Pamela the two enjoyed chatting together. Pamela grabbed her globe in her room and said, “Do you have time for me to tell you a story?” 🙂
Pamela was born in New Zealand. Home of the kiwis! Pamela told Erica about the picnics and barbecues that her family had outside. She said one thing that she loved was spending more time with her husband and 5 children outside than inside watching TV! She loved watching Rugby. Pamela hiked the mountains of New Zealand and loved to swim in the ocean. When asked, “What is one of the greatest things you learned while living there?” Pamela replied… “to share beauty and peace with people. All around New Zealand you see beautiful sceneries. Sometimes you see something like the New Zealand Mountains, and it is so beautiful…you just cannot truly believe how beautiful it is. Look at someone’s computer screen background...it is usually a mountain or beautiful scenery. I think it is because those beautiful sceneries bring peace.” ⛰
It was such a beautiful moment for both Pamela and Erica. Moments like these are an important reminder to take time and truly listen to others. Our Members have amazing stories to tell. 💕

At JRC, we are committed to serving our customers no matter where they are!
We spoke with Janet Lillevold, SVP of the Transformation Office and Security Officer at New Perspective Senior Living a few weeks ago. While COVID19 hadn't hit quite as hard yet at that time, Janet's wisdom applies more now than ever. Around the globe, we do not have data to deal with what we're dealing with, so we must listen. We must breath, think, live life on purpose right in this very moment given the circumstances we have. "It's about metrics, but it's also about listening. Listening to resisters as well as adopters. Listening to what's working and what's not." ~Janet Lillevold, SVP, Transformation Office & Security Officer, New Perspective Senior Living

"Doing things that matter each day is part of your loved one’s purpose. If your loved one volunteers with a local hospital, he or she will wake up each day wanting to do something to benefit those at the facility. Your loved one may learn a lot while volunteering by using short-term memory and critical thinking skills. When his or her brain is stimulated, your loved one can lower the risk of developing dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other cognitive issues. Having a cause to believe in and working toward that cause each day brings a sense of purpose and accomplishment." - Home Care Assistance
