The New Year is days away and the holidays are wrapping up. Family is headed back home and ready to move into 2019. Sometimes, if you’re a family member who lives out of town and doesn’t get back as much as usual, you may notice changes that you weren’t aware of the last time you visited. While you were home for the holidays, did you notice your mother/father, grandma/grandpa, etc. seemed to be having a more difficult time carrying out everyday tasks than normal? Maybe they could use a little extra help in the home.

Naturally, as we age, we change both mentally and physically. These changes can present challenges that affect day-to-day life. This doesn’t mean you’re unable to live alone or unable to preform a majority of your daily tasks. It just means that particular everyday functions may become harder to accomplish and present more risks for falls or other injuries.

Here are a few recipes catered to specific diets to help you maintain your health while not missing out on all the great food that comes with the joy of the season!

There are many definitions for care management, but to put it quite simply- it is assistance with coordination of services related to a person’s overall wellbeing. A care manager can help individuals identify paths to improving one’s health and assist them in achieving their health care goals.
