ALL THAT GLITTERS Richard Alan Strong words, “I can do most anything,” not exactly like Nike’s catch phrase, which is “Just do it!” Problem with “Just do it,” is that you do it and fail or fall on your face, that can be a problem.

In my case, as a young learning goldsmith, I was instructed to “just do it,” the problem could be a tough repair or a ... Read More »

Many individuals falsely believe they only need a doctor when they are sick; however, having a primary care physician may be the very reason you remain healthy. Not only does he or she provide you with necessary preventative care—in staying ... Read More »

I believe that people and their cars begin to look alike. As time goes by it’s easy to recognize which person belongs to which car…yes, I ... Read More »

As promised, today we’ll cover five distinct financial management issues related to conversations with caregivers and family members dealing with Alzheimer’s and other cognitive ability changes. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology (MIT) AgeLab developed a five-element framework to discuss financial planning in the context of dealing with Alzheimer’s disease.

Dimensions of Dementia Shirley Woolaway After hearing about Alzheimer’s disease from family, friends, or the media, we all might start to wonder about our own memory.

After an initial visit, I was evaluated during two sessions of two hours each, and at the final visit, Beckwith told me the results. He had tested my memory with remembering lists of words, numbers forward and back, stories, and drawings. There were also timed exercises, questions about current events, ... Read More »
