  5. How Can You Help Your Elderly Parents Remain Social?

    Comment
    Loneliness can become a big problem for people as they get older. You might start to lose contact with your friends, and some of them may move away or even pass away. One of the things that might make you worry about your elderly parents is whether they have the company that they need to prevent loneliness. Even couples who live together can get lonely if they only have each other. While you might do your best to keep in touch and visit when you can, you can’t necessarily be there for them all the time. So what can you do to help prevent loneliness? Find Them the Right Place to Live The right living arrangements can make a big difference...
  6. Dealing With the Loss of a Someone Close to You

    Comment
      Unfortunately, loss is something that we will all experience to some extent in our lifetimes. The beauty of life is counteracted with the fact that we must all pass at some point or another. This will mean eventually having to deal with the loss of a loved one in some capacity. Now, this is a morbid topic and something that we often try to avoid thinking about. But really, death is natural and it isn’t something that we should really fear or avoid talking about. In fact, when people experience loss, many struggle as they’re unsure what to do, how they should be feeling and how they should deal with those emotions. Here’s some information on the subject that should be able to...
  7. 4 Tips for Coping When You’re Caring for a Disabled Partner

    Comment
      As we get older, many of us will become sick and infirm, and a portion of us will end up with disabilities. This means that a portion of us will also end up caring for a partner with a disability. Carers of the disabled are more likely to be stressed and suffer from symptoms of loneliness, isolation and depression than the general population, which is shocking, but perhaps not surprising. There needs to be a change in the way that carers are supported via official means, but until that happens, if you are caring for a disabled partner, you need to do what you can to take good care of yourself.   With that in mind, here are some tips that...
  8. How To Support Your Husband Or Partner With Hair Loss

    Comment
    Hair loss or male pattern baldness is very common. Men that are approaching their 50s usually begin to lose their hair somewhat rapidly. However, some men also begin to lose their hair in their early 20s or early 30s. This is also quite common as the bald gene is dominant and if you have a family history of baldness, you stand a high chance of losing your hair as well. For women who are married or with their boyfriend or husband that is losing his hair, it can be quite sad to witness them begin to have confidence issues. You may have never seen your husband act so timidly before, unsure of himself and unhappy with the way he looks. We always...
  9. Online Dating over 50: How I Rescued My Sister from a Romance Scam Criminal

    Comment
    Article By Shelley Frost I didn’t want to believe it. I pretended like everything was fine. But when my sister’s online boyfriend told her to call him King and he will call her Queen, I finally accepted that she was caught in a romance scam.   Why did this little detail pull the trigger for me to begin an investigation? I was guessing that some of these scammers juggle multiple victims. The chances that he will mistakenly say the name of one of his ladies while talking to another is too risky. Having his women respond to the name Queen ensures that he won’t screw up anytime soon, and the money keeps flowing.   But at the time when I deduced her guy was a bad guy, I knew very little about...
  10. Relationships over 50: 7 surprising relationship lessons you can learn from movies 

    Comment
    Article by Dawud Gurevitch Whether you’re a filmophile, a filmophobe or somewhere in-between, movies can do much more than simply entertain us. Yes, the film industry exists primarily for this reason in exchange for our Netflix membership or our cinema ticket fee (before the pandemic) but did you realise that some movies can teach us surprising lessons about life and relationships? In this article I touch upon seven popular films that each reveal a different take on love and life in all its glory, which doesn’t mean that everything you will see and hear in them will be “sunshine and rainbows” as my wife likes to call it, but will mean that overall you get a realistic view of some of the very things we live for: love, laughter,...
