Protectors. Caregivers. Heroes. Over 39 percent of U.S. adults were taking care of a loved one in 2013.
Whether buying groceries, assisting with finances, managing medications, transporting to medical appointments or helping with showering and dressing, caregiving can be a highly rewarding experience.
Lose weight. Enjoy life to the fullest. Stay fit and healthy. Spend more time with family. According to the research institute Statistic Brain, these are four of the top 10 New Year’s resolutions people make. Do they sound familiar?
Crimson Hexagon, a social media analysis firm, notes that 46 percent of Americans who made resolutions have vowed to exercise more and be healthier. Easier said than done?

As the popular holiday song so gracefully states: It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Kids jingle belling. Marshmallows toasting. Much mistletoe-ing. And plenty of cheer.
But for some seniors, the hap-happiest season of all can be stressful. The Holiday season is full of traditions and memories that can trigger emotions and even loneliness. It’s up to caregivers, then, to lift seniors’ spirits and help them remember the good times while also creating new, joyous memories that can be relived in the years to come.
“Go Purple With a Purpose.” That’s the message being broadcast all across the United States and throughout Capital Senior Living communities with the start of National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness and National Caregivers Month.
