Sometimes we feel caught between a rock and hard place when our parents need our help. How has caring for an aging parent impacted your life and what have you learned?
Caring for an aging parent is a time consuming and often demanding part of life for many. Help! I fell trapped caring for my aging mother!

+Sylvia Resnick Unresolved issues and family dynamics commonly impact the way we handle the cargiving years on both sides of the equation. Time and time again I've watched love prevail. It's not always easy, but if we are struggling and uncomfortable we have an opportunity to move forward in our understanding of ourselves and relationships in general. I believe we all long to love, maybe even more than we long to be loved. Clearing the debris that stands in the way of love is worth the effort, and to do so sometimes we need to complain. Sometimes complaining is just an excuse for not changing.

It's spring and I'm itching to take to the road! If you're an RVer or looking for an inexpensive place to stay with activities you might want to check this out. They have a special offer going on now. They also have communities for seniors and families - you can choose and pets are welcome! I haven't visited but I'm thinking of giving it a try. Let me know if you have!

A loved one who refuses to eat can be very stressful and cause for concern. Know when to take action.

One belief, wrongly held, can cast a shadow over one's entire life.
What do you believe? Do you know what's driving you?
Over the last decade in my work with women over fifty, I have heard said countless times, "I don't feel that way anymore", and "I don't worry about that anymore. It's just not important." The proce...

Community living is becoming popular among seniors. Have you or anyone you known considered this option for #aginginplace? 
NORCs -- or naturally occurring retirement communities -- older adults can stay in their homes rather than move.

Are the men in your life taking part in caregiving?
Men as caregivers, male caregivers are stepping up to the plate. Caregiving has historically been the woman's domain. Even as recent as 10 years ago.

Science is learning so much about our brains and the varying influences on mood disorders. I have great hope for things to come! 
A recent study from the University of Georgia shows differences in brain structure according to how trusting people are of others.

Nora, havefaith in YOU. That is where it starts. give it a try for an hour or a day. Tape a note on your bathroom mirror that states something hopeful even if it is a small thing. Keep focusing on that statement, don't force it, just focus for a moment and move on. Your brain will do the rest. Honest.

I had an opportunity to listen to the silence the last 24 hours...it was awesome! Happy to have the power back on today. 
Winter weather has descended on many of us in full force in recent weeks. My brother called from New Hampshire to assure me that while yes, he is buried in snow, he is surviving. That's what they d...

Thank you for sharing your story of silence. I enjoyed it as if I was there. It's a peacefulness never found by most in today's world.

Story
Tagline
I believe in the beauty, wisdom and viability of women over fifty.
Introduction
I am most visible as an advocate for women over fifty. I enjoy my day job as a small business and marketing coach for this very creative demographic. I am newly inspired everyday by their commitment to making the world a better place to live. I do what I can to help them see their gifts more clearly and offer support and direction as they bring their dreams to fruition one step at a time.    

I could not breathe if I could not write. In recent years I write most often about the trials and tribulations, joys and celebrations of being a woman over fifty in the 21st century. I also enjoy escaping into fiction and poetry when time allows. 


Aging Abundantly Website showcases wise women, their passions and businesses. Marketing, writing, coaching and publishing support services.
