50 Tips for Helping Elders – the book

by jameec on January 25, 2016

project_image_152After nearly 94 years my mom has given up independent living. We recently moved her into an assisted living facility where she is very happy now. 

For the past seven years I cared for my mother in a very personal way.  I learned a lot during those years about caring for elders. As mom’s needs grew so did the time I spent with her. Eventually it became a part time job as she required more and more care.

For instance, I made sure her house was safe. I saw that the fridge was stocked up
and she had time outdoors for some fresh air. I made sure she could get around safely clearing a pathway in her patio-garden. While she designed the garden I would do the planting. She has always had quite a green thumb! We’ve had a good time together.  

As her eyesight became worse, (she is now legally blind), it became absolutely necessary for her home to be maintained in a certain way.  Discovering and meeting many of moms needs came naturally for me. I could observe and suss out her needs and find out a way to manage them most of the time. We learn as we go. That said, some of the best ways to make improvements included my siblings, I was not a lone wolf here.

And even though I could see certain solutions easily I learned that others did not quite understand the needs of an elder the way I had become accustomed to. And why would they?  I think it takes spending time with an elder to learn what they need. Even something as simple as holding her arm when she walked from the front door of her home to my car door wasn’t clear to some people. I would notice that and exclaim eeeek!…”don’t let go of her”.

I learned so much caring for my mom my sister prompted me to write a book about it!  So. Ok, I’ll create a little book to help others in the same situation. Thanks sis! I’ll do it, I’ll compile my experience of caring for my mom into a little book to help others care for their aging parents or the elders they love.

Oh, I have a twitter page to go along with this project. Take a look if you want to track my progress: https://twitter.com/50TipsForElders
Thank You!

Getting Outa’ Dodge

by jameec on September 21, 2015

“Money is really a form of energy. The difference between having money and not having money is a quiet, subtle shift in consciousness.  A conscious exchange of funds requires presence.  Learning to gather your personal power in order to create a conscious flow of money in your life and effect good on the planet is the goal here.” 

When we push the river we only get wet and hey, we might even fall into the river and finally get with the flow of things.

Pay attention to your business and your cash flow but not at the expense of spending time with nature.  Spend time in nature and clear your head. The, get back to the heart of the matter as the heart is the best place to do business from, to connect with others and to move from.

When the need arises, leave your desk behind and as the saying goes…. ‘Get Outa Dodge’. Prosperity comes in so many ways. Enjoy the video.
