A Vision Plan You May Want to Look At.


I came across this plan, Vision Service Plan - VSP, and decided to check it out. I went on to the website and did some searching about plans and costs -- it seems like a decent plan to look at. There are vision plans for eye exams, glasses, contacts, lasik surgery, as well as dental. Costs are for individuals as well as families. I also checked around looking for doctors in a variety of areas across the country ( I took out my Christmas card list and used different addresses) - not exactly the perfect sample but it did cover some major population areas as well as smaller ones. I was able to find doctors in all areas I checked. You can sign in as a guest first and do some searching. Depending on the plan you currently have, you may want to take a look to see how it compares to what your plan covers; or find out if it can be a supplement. Some of what it helps to cover may be a separate benefit, subject to an additional cost - so look things over carefully. Again - please check with your current medical plan to see IF or HOW it may help. As a caregiver, we are constantly trying to find additional resources that can help with medical situations that may arise and looking for low-cost ways of getting what is needed so it is not draining anyone's financial resources.

4 Signs of Caregiving Stress Overload

ElderCarelink email posts 4 signs that should not be overlooked by you, the caregiver, or a close family member or friend. They report that even though the immediate caregiver may not be helping in direct care, the mind is never far from the needs of the older person, thinking about meals, falling, medications. Take the opinion of a family member or friend if they are telling you that you are stressed. Four signs: you skip your own physicals; you isolate yourself from others; you eat and/or drink too much for good health; you are short tempered with the elder, your spouse or your children. If any or all of these sound familiar, take a break no matter how short in order to recharge. For more information on caregiver stress see ElderCarelink

A Caregiver's Poem

I was looking through a 'Caregiver's Blog: Senior Care Support' and came across a poem that was shared by a writer, Dana, from the blog. The poem was written by Becky Netherland and Dana's grandmother shared it with her. I thought it was great and there is not much to say about it - just read!!! Enjoy!!

Grandma’s Pearls of Wisdom:
(picture from Caregivers Blog)

I’ve traveled paths you’ve yet to walk
Learned lessons old and new
And now this wisdom of my life
I’m blessed to share with you
Let kindness spread like sunshine
Embrace those who are sad
Respect their dignity, give them joy
And leave them feeling glad
Forgive those who might hurt you
And though you have your pride
Listen closely to their viewpoint
Try to see the other side
Walk softly when you’re angry
Try not to take offense
Invoke your sense of humor
Laughter’s power is immense!
Express what you are feeling
Your beliefs you should uphold
Don’t shy away from what is right
Be courageous and be bold
Keep hope right in your pocket
It will guide you day by day
Take it out when it is needed
When it’s near, you’ll find a way
Remember friends and family
Of which you are a precious part
Love deeply and love truly
Give freely from your heart
The world is far from perfect
There’s conflict and there’s strife
But you still can make a difference
By how you live your life
And so I’m very blessed to know
The wonders you will do
Because you are my granddaughter
And I believe in you.
