man at beach webAh, it’s finally spring! According to Lord Tennyson, “In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.” For some women, their thoughts heavily turn to spring cleaning and flowing Honey-do lists.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a way to clean the house just one time and have it remain clean forever? Don’t get excited; I don’t have such a solution. I do, however, have a solution to a problem that is far more important, and that will last forever.

SacredHeart big webHow do most families manage a senior who has dementia?
These scenarios vary based on the family structure and the progression of the disease. An
individual who has early-stage dementia and lives with a relatively healthy spouse or other family member willing to be a caregiver, can remain at home for as long as it is possible for the individual to be safe. Those with dementia need round-the-clock care, and caregiving is a very difficult task. Many caregivers supplement caregiving duties and receive respite care by rotating duties with other family members or contracting with home care services. Often at some point, the caregiving responsibilities become too overwhelming for the caregiver, and the individual with dementia will move into a memory care community.

wonderful lifeIt’s a Wonderful Life is a 1946 American Christmas fantasy comedy-drama film. The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Oddbody (Henry Travers). Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched, and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be if he had never been born.

  • The film is considered one of the most loved films in American cinema, and has become traditional viewing during the Christmas season. It has been recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made.
  • Capra insisted on recording the sound live during the film’s snow-filled scenes so a new, less disruptive snow made from water, soap and a fire-fighting chemical called Foamite was invented and pumped through a wind machine.
  • It’s a Wonderful Life was actually shot in the summer of 1946—in the midst of a heat wave, no less.
  • It all began with a Christmas card. After years of unsuccessfully trying to shop his short story, The Greatest Gift, to publishers, Philip Van Doren Stern decided to give the gift of words to his closest friends for the holidays when he printed up 200 copies of the story and sent them out as a 21-page Christmas card. David Hempstead, a producer at RKO Pictures, ended up getting a hold of it, and purchased the movie rights for $10,000.
