Welcome to April! It's difficult to realize that spring is already here, but after the wintery weather that most of the country has experienced, I'm sure everyone is looking forward to the milder temperatures and the promise of summer that spring brings.
This month SeniorHomes.com is covering variety of topics in our forthcoming blog posts. Continuing our theme on the inevitable physical losses that accompany age, we will highlight the loss of mobility and when it's time to discuss relinquishing your parent's car keys. Fortunately for seniors still living at home, there are other transportation opportunities available, which we will also highlight.
Shayne Fitz-Coy will highlight other senior-friendly DIY projects if the spring cleaning urge strikes you, and in her The Last Stop column, Margery Friedstein discusses single living at her retirement community.
In recognition of Earth Day on April 22, we will have a series of posts highlighting sustainable senior living. Joan Journey's will discuss the green practices at her retirement community. For seniors who would prefer joining a retirement community that practices sustainability, later this month we will unveil a list of communities to aid in this search.
To start off the month, we'll dust off a few earlier articles we wrote on senior living going green:
In the coming months, we will also discuss the caregiver/care-receiver relationship and just in time for summer, how seniors can safely enjoy the sunny weather. If there is a topic you would like to see featured, please let us know in the comment field below. Until next time...
