Fear of Falls Causes Unsafe Behavior

When someone is fearful of falling, they start to avoid everyday activities by staying at home and doing less. This lack of activity leads to loss of strength, reduced muscle tone, and loss of coordination and balance. This physical deterioration increases the risk of falling and if a fall does occur, it further heightens the fear. Turn your fear of falling into positive actions; remain active, exercise regularly, use assistive devices such as walkers or grab bars and wear sensible shoes. Consider joining a group session designed especially to teach balance exercises for fall prevention.

Springtime Pests and Your Pets

Spring brings pleasant weather, but also a host of pests that can target your furry friend. Fleas, ticks, and other outdoor pests become active as soon as it gets warmer outside, so spring is a good time to treat your pets and prevent pests from becoming an issue. Be sure to thoroughly brush your pet after they’ve been outdoors and clean any areas of your home where they spend most of their time. Check your pet frequently for signs of bites, and promptly remove any pests you may find. Finally, ask your veterinarian what products can safely help control pests.

Jan & Jack live in a custom home they built many years ago. When they reached retirement they still had a mortgage and inadequate cash-flow to help them make ends meet.

Today, Jan & Jack have paid off their mortgage, have increased their monthly cash flow, and enjoy every day of retirement in their dream home.
