Looking At Shoulder Pain (Part I) Tagged with:

Shoulder pain is a serious health issue for people who use wheelchairs – some studies show a prevalence as high as 70%! And too often this pain, or the fear of causing this pain, limits participation in an exercise program.

Long Term Care, It Destroys Family Harmony . . . Tagged with:
Have you ever been in a nursing home? Who’s there? Who gets sick first? Who keeps him out of a nursing home? (She does.)

When we hear personal stories about Long Term Care experiences, they’re almost always negative. Siblings become angry with each other over whose responsibility the parents care is supposed to be.
