Spring Cleaning for Seniors

Spring is the perfect time of the year to take stock of what we have and what we need to throw away, but did you know that spring cleaning can also be good for your health? That’s because so much of what we tend to keep is actually not good for us.

Ten things your loved one can give away, replace or pitch today.
Could it be the early stages of dementia?
For author Jaqueline Marcell, the signs she mistook as a "challenging" elderly father resisting care were actually the first signs of his fight with dementia. Her book Elder Rage outlines that experience. It is among the many we recommend for those seeking to learn more about the care they provide as family. 

How caregivers can identify and cope with early stages of dementia

Sign up for our new support group!

Woodland Ridge and Homestead Hospice are teaming up to offer a six-week support program. Based on Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’s five stages of grief, our Anticipatory Grief Support program, is open to the general public as well as our families and friends.

Join us Monday mornings at 10 a.m. as Homestead Hospice Chaplain Katrina Lynch leads us in discussing and understanding the grief process. The program begins on June 6 and runs through July 18 (except for July 4th).
