Worried About Your Medications? Communicate
Have you ever wondered if the medications you are taking interact with each other or if they are less effective if taken together? Do you feel that some of your medications are not necessary or possibly making you feel worse? Have you heard of a friend having a bad experience with a medication that your doctor is now prescribing for you? These and many other reasons account for the challenges of taking medications correctly.
Understanding Grandparents with Dementia
One of the greatest joys in life is the relationship between a grandchild and grandparent. Unfortunately, not every child has the opportunity to spend time and really know their grandparents due to any number of factors, including having a deceased grandparent, geographic separation, and increasingly more common --- the effects of dementia.
Dementia robs an individual of their personality and dramatically alters the relationships of those around them – spouses, children, and grandchildren. Dementia is particularly painful for those who witness the harrowing transformation from who they were into who they are with dementia. The silver lining is that they had the opportunity to know the individual.

Re-hospitalization – admission to a hospital soon after discharge – is common and expensive. In many situations, hospitalization is necessary and appropriate. However, nearly one in every five elderly patients who are discharged from the hospital are re-hospitalized within 30 days.
Returning to the hospital after recovering from an illness, injury or surgery is something nobody wants.

Lehigh Valley Audubon Society
Have we not often looked up at the sky and wonder at some of the remarkable birds flying above us or just sitting on a tree limb? While we might not be bird watchers, most of us take pleasure in seeing these beautiful animals soar high above us or just flitter from tree to tree.
One of the benefits of living here is that we have the Lehigh Valley Audubon Society in our backyard. This is a group consisting of avid bird watchers and volunteers who take great pleasure in spotting, following and studying birds.
