Looking Ahead To September
- We will be making time the week of 9/6/21 to remember all those who died in this nation’s 9/11 tragedy. We won’t let this somber day in history be forgotten and we will celebrate all the first responders that put forth such heroic effort that day.

Dear Springs Residents and Family Members (or as I like to say “Our Extended Family”),
Can you believe it’s time to think about September? It’s amazing how fast the months fly by!
Within the realm of caring for a senior is assisted living. There are many wonderful reasons why an aging person would do well to choose assisted living for their future. The more experience a caregiver has — whether it is a professional who works for an agency or even a family member who has done this for many years –more often they realize just how beneficial assisted living can be.
If your spouse of however many years is having difficulty living at home and needs constant supervision or assistance, that can take a toll on anyone, regardless of age. If you are already in your 70’s, possibly into your 80’s, you don’t want to turn your back on him or her. However, even though you understand assisted living is a great option, you wonder if it is time yet or if you can still both remain home and together.

Complaining is easy. People complain all the time. Many people complain and don’t even realize they’re doing it. It becomes habit. Maybe your mother has never been like that. Perhaps she has put up with a lot in her life, dealt with many challenging circumstances that would have troubled other people, and would never have thought about complaining. Your mother may have been one of those people that saw the blessings in everything. That is a wonderful characteristic and trait to have. But whether that was her life before or she was always one to complain, she may be complaining about this new assisted living environment she finds herself in.
