Grateful for our Country!

Kate Jones

My Dad is our family historian, and I have spent my lifetime hearing incredible stories of heroes from the past.  One of the best stories he regaled us with took place during the War of 1812-the night of September 13, 1814 to be exact.

An American lawyer had boarded a British ship in the Baltimore harbor several days before in an attempt to have an American prisoner released.  While he was successful in completing this goal, he and his companions were detained and placed under guard because they knew of an impending British attack on the Americans.  A couple of days later, on September 13 the British opened an extraordinary attack on Ft. McHenry about 8 miles away from where this group was being held.  Through the afternoon and into the night they watched helplessly as the battle ensued.  The night sky was a blazing red with fire and bombs and as the night slowly crept on, the detainees distressed over the fate of their fellow Americans.  But as the first light started to break, the most remarkable miracle stood high in the sky—there in the smoky distance of destruction and ruin, one colorful proof of hope stood tall. The American flag was still flying indicating that the Americans were victorious in protecting their Fort.

Can you imagine the joy this young lawyer, Francis Scott Key, felt as he saw his symbol of freedom standing tall that early morning?  He sat down right there and started penning his experience:

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Thank you to all of the people who have defended our great country to protect our freedom and way of life!  What a blessing and a privilege to live in the greatest country on earth, The United States of America!

Happy Independence Day, Friends!

 

Sandwiched!

Kate Jones

Do you sometimes feel so trapped in the middle between your children, work, home, activities, and aging parents?  You are not alone! 

Deinition: SANDWICH GENERATION: Those sandwiched between aging parents who need care and/or help, and their own children.

The Profile: 

  • Represent 22.9 million households (21% of US)

  • 1 of every 8 baby boomers are raising a child AND providing some form of support to a parent

  • 59% of caregivers work either full time or part time

  • Typically spends more than 20 hours a week providing care

Care Recipient Profile:

  • 80% are 50 years or older; average age is 66 years old, typically female widowers

  • 75% of care recipients do not live with a caregiver, 55% live in their own home

Caregiver Needs:

  • Finding time for oneself

  • Managing emotional/physical stress

  • Balancing work and family responsibilities

  • Helping to keep te person they care for safe.

Remember, you can't help anyone if you don't take care of you first!

  • Keep the "law of 7's in mind

    • 7 hours of sleep each night

    • 7 glasses of water

    • 7 miles of exercise a week

  • Eat right!  When we are stressed or rushed, we either skip meals or eat unhealthy food on the road.  Don't do that!

    • Publix, Kroger, Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joes etc. have healthy foods that are pre-packaged for meals on the go like apple slices, pre-made salads, and sandwiches

    • Eat protein for breakfast!  It will sustain you longer through the day.

  • Keep up your own health and wellness plan

    • Regular doctor and dental appointments

    • If you're sick, take time off and get well

  • Continue those things that are important to you being you

    • THIS IS YOUR LIFE!!! Don't forget that!

    • Keep running or playing tennis or reading or going to concerts

    • Keep your dates with your spouse and friends

  • ASK FOR HELP

    • You can't do it alone.  No one expects you to but you.  Let go!

    • Delegate

    • Appreciate the help that is offered and accept it

    • Remember, sometimes people don't know what to offer, so they say, "is there anything I can do for you?"  It is a sincere question.  The answer is "YES!"  Let them help you

    • Hire respite help.  Professional companies help for a reason-we love it!  And we are good at it!  If you need a night off, or a week off, or an hour off, just call.  There's help!

Yes, We Do That!

Who do I call for that?  I ask that question routinely.  For things that don't occur in our natural day to day operation, we wander through Yellow Pages and websites aimlessly hoping our answer will jump out at us.

A friend of mine had some significant pastic surgery and needed help for 2 days getting home, getting clean, preparing food, getting prescriptions filled, etc.  Her mom was coming to help her, but her mom fell the day before the surgery and could not travel.

Similarly, another friend was trying to get pregnant and required daily injections in her hip for several days while her husband was out of town.  The injections were supposed to be given at a certain time and the doctor's ofiice wasn't open.

My neighbor is pregnant with her third child right now.  Her first child has autism and requires additional attention.  We were trying to determine the best baby shower gift we could give to her.

People think Home Care is just Activities of Daily Living support for a senior citizen.  Yes, we do lots of that and we take so much pride in our ability to do that well.  But we do so much more. We help clients out post-surgery for as short or as long as is needed.  We do medical work as well as non-medical work so with our team of nurses working around the clock, we can do injections and infusions in your home. And the coolest baby shower gift out there is MOMMY TWO.  We can help the new mom out in whatever ways she needs while she is bonding with her new baby.  And if she is on bedrest, we are there to help too.

Yes,we do that!!  Just call and ask!
