THANKSGIVING AND GATHERING
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! Wow!
Today we are grateful for GATHERING.
Many of us will gather this week with family and friends we have not seen in awhile. And while the hustle and bustle of the holidays can be a whirlwind, seeing loved ones again provides an opportunity to check in and see how everyone is doing.
This is especially true for our aging friends and fam. We often hear about Alzheimer’s and Dementia and what the signs are.
But Alzheimer’s and Dementia aren’t the only things to be aware of. Staying connected with others can become difficult, which can create even more physical and mental problems. Depression, anxiety, and OCD are commonly seen in our aging population. Physical manifestations can also occur. Malnutrition and dehydration are common culprits.
Read more about Isolation and the effects it can have below. Remember to check in on your people and on YOURSELF! These issues can effect all of us.
Be kind, Be True, Be Well.
