Your Inheritance: Pass It On

Many Augusta-area “Cold War Veterans” who served their country as employees of the SRS plant, unfortunately, have/are currently suffering from a myriad of physical ailments –the majority causation being some of the many forms of nuclear exposure.

In response to this horrible (and unfortunately rampant) phenomenon, the federal gov’t (via the Dept. of Labor) has vowed to compensate these people by providing both considerable monetary awards and no-cost healthcare (which includes up to 24/7/365 home health care so as to avoid ...

Jane Lear at Take Part says “Eat Oats for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner“. After reading the following passage we tend to agree:

Oats are a great source of protein and healthy fats. They have an abundance of soluble and insoluble fiber; the soluble fiber, specifically beta-glucan, helps lower cholesterol levels in the blood, and insoluble keeps the body’s plumbing in good order.

America is facing an explosion in both the relative and absolute number of seniors comprising our population, and with that explosive growth comes an increasing number of difficult choices which will need to be made by an increasing number of seniors, their family members and their caregivers.

Not surprisingly, seniors constantly experience frustration – and in many cases, even anger – over their individual inability to successfully “age-in-place,” especially as their individual need for medical intervention increases. This has led to ...
