And the air smells like lilacs…

Last weekend … a difficult one.  Along with it being Mother’s Day, it was also Dad’s birthday.  And yesterday was the anniversary of his death 2 years ago.  A lot of weight to carry these past few days.  Yet, as well last Sunday, my son and his family were out at the house for dinner.  We collected rocks and built cairns in the backyard as memorial, enjoyed each other’s company and today the sun is shining, the air smells like lilacs and the dog is patiently (well … maybe not too patiently) waiting for me to post this blog so we can go to the park.

Here is the start of a list of websites we found helpful through the years.  If you know of any and would like to include them, please do:

www.ctcommunitycare.org
Our mission at Connecticut Community Care, Inc. (CCCI) is to identify choices and provide services to help people of all ages, abilities, and incomes to live at home. Our nursing and social services care managers look at care management from every perspective, including caregiving, housekeeping, social, emotional, medical and financial needs.

We help seniors and families make informed decisions, save time and feel less alone as they search for senior housing and senior care.

http://www.agingcare.com
AgingCare.com is an online community that connects people caring for elderly parents to other caregivers, personalized information and local resources.

http://www.familycaregiving101.org/
If you’re caring for a loved one who is ill or disabled, this site was created for you. It’s a great place to find assistance, answers, new ideas and helpful advice — for you and your loved one.

Be good to yourself-
