Spring has finally arrived! You can hear it in the bird's songs, you can see it in the bright yellow daffodils, you can taste it in your mouth as you take this season's first bite of a grilled hot dog! It is the time of year when once again we say to ourselves "Life is good"! We feel alive and rejuvenated!, ready to take on life's challenges, ready to become healthier so we can sit in the presence of our Doctor and hear him say "WOW! I have never seen you look so good!" Well, maybe that's a bit of a stretch. But don't let that stop you from trying! Let our monthly newsletter help you to stay on track. Each issue will provide you with useful tips and information specially designed headerto promote the wellness of your mind, body, and spirit. This is just another way we at Loving Arms Elder Care are able to help you live a healthier and happier life!

Memory JarKeeping Your Mind Active
Memory Jars

We use memory jars with our clients and their families to help them stay connected on an interpersonal level and to commemorate their lives. It creates a way for our clients to recall their fondest times thus making those past memories a part of their present life. This has proven to be especially beneficial for those with any form of Dementia through the stimulation of the brain's memory center. The creation and repetitive use of memory jars has decreased anxiety and restlessness in our clients by allowing them to focus on the good in their lives instead of the bad. Actually making the memory jar is a wonderful family activity!  Click here for complete instructions on how to make your own memory jar.

Keeping Your Body Healthy
Did you know that as you age your nutritional needs change? Your body needs more nutrients yet less calories, and you need those nutrients spread out more evenly throughout the entire day. We recommend and encourage our clients to eat six times a day. This includes three (3) small meals and three (3) snacks. Click here for more information on healthy eating.
Keeping Your Spirit Alivespirit
Spirituality means different things to different people. It may include faith or what provides a sense of personal meaning in life (and death). Your spiritual needs need to be met in order to maintain that level of spirituality that you were once used to in your younger years. We work with our clients closely to identify their specific spiritual needs and create a program specially designed to help satisfy those needs.
