Why the phone still matters

Woo hoo Sam. Another great article! I agree with this ...communication (and sales) only happen when people engage one-on-one. Pick up the damn phone and connect. I see so many companies investing in social media and not a penny on training people on how to engage and effectively communicate with today's new consumer...online AND offline. The companies that do invest in both, social media and sales training are the one reaping the rewards. Thanks for sharing your wisdom!!! Liz By Liz Wendling on 2014 10 20

Growing old isn't for sissies

There are more substantive questions to prompt: Why does your parent need to move? Is there a cognitive issue? Is there a physical safety issue? Are they in the same town or state? Has your parent developed a will, power of attorney documents and designated a family member to assist with these affairs? Are you aware of a KELS exam to assess cognition and personal safety? This validates too the ability to self-administer medications as well as the ability to prepare food, eat it on time, and store it safely. Does the elder care facility offer sliding services for someone who has a cognitive decline but is not yet ready for memory care? An assisted care facility is not a nursing home and does not provide that level of care. Who are the local physician care services and do they visit the facility; do they have a good reputation?
