Remembering 9-11

Tomorrow is September 11th. Do you remember where you were when you first heard about the events occuring during 9-11-01?

Because I am on Mountain Time, I heard the news on the radio about half way into work. At that point they thought it was an accident. And then the second plane hit the second tower. It so happened that my work had CNN on several TV's in what we called a Network Operations Center (NOC) and one wall of the NOC was nothing but glass. I gathered with about 12 other co-workers at that glass watching the events unfold, all of us in horror. Well, except one person who was asking if they could get a server overnighted to a customer. The magnitude of the events were not registering, even after we told them that ALL flights in the ENTIRE US were grounded. And then another coworker mentioned under her breath (oh, all of those people...). That was when the first tower collapsed.

None of the people on the hijacked airplanes survived. The total death toll of the attacks was 2,996 including the 19 hijackers. People from over 70 countries were killed and overwhelmingly were civilians.

I went home early, gathered my children and spent the rest of the day with my family watching the news, thanking heaven that my family was safe. After tucking the kids in, I sat on the back patio. I will never forget the silence and the lack of airplanes in the sky. It was so powerful to only see our military flying in a grid patrolling our airspace, keeping us safe.

So tomorrow, give pause to remember those who needlessly died in the name of hatred, and their families who suffered and had to find the strength to somehow move on.

Retirement Living, Assisted Living & Nursing Homes

There are many options for senior living, and it can be confusing to know which choice is best for you or a loved one.

It used to be that senior family members either had family come to their home to care for them, they went to live with a child in their home, or they went to a nursing home. Nursing homes still carry somewhat of a stigma, although they have come a long way and no longer warrant that negative connotation.

Retirement Living or Independent Living communities can be single homes in a subdivision or apartment complexes. They are for people who can live without help, but no longer want the burden of home maintenance. They offer a setting for people of the same age and same interests to live in the same community. They often offer social activities, day trips, cooked meals, house cleaning and shuttle services. The also tend to offer other services at a reduced rate to the group such as a community handyman, detailed house cleaning, beauty salon, healthcare or homecare services. They simply cater to the needs and desires of people who are retired.

Assisted Living communities vary greatly by definition. A lot of them are now called “progressive” living, creating a “campus” where seniors can move into Independent Living, and as their needs change, they can move within the building to receive more advanced care and help. These living arrangements allow the senior to live in the same location without having to ever move their home more than a wing away. Some facilities even offer hospice. Although this can be difficult for some seniors to accept, it makes caring for the senior easier since the medical team on the campus is congruent. Some Assisted Living locations only care for seniors to a certain level of care and if skilled nurses or hospice are needed, the senior would have to move.

Nursing Homes are for those requiring skilled nursing - basically doctors or nurses provide services on a daily basis. The emphasis on care is medical care. Seniors can also stay short-term while going through rehabilitation, and then move back to their previous location.

While the decision to move may be difficult, benefits of community senior living are great. Social interaction can decrease social isolation and possibly improve health. Having balanced, prepared meals ensure continued health. And most importantly, senior focused healthcare is at your fingertips.
