The summer is a terrific time to vacation and enjoy the sun! However, once the July heat and humidity sets in, we are often struggling and desperate for some relief! We are fortunate that, even in the summer heat, there are endless activity options for seniors in the DC metro area!

One of my clients shared with me a recent New York Times Article, "Its Almost Like A Ghost Town, Most Nursing Homes Overstated Staffing for Years". This article sadly does not provide any information that I am surprised about as a care manager. I work very hard to help my clients to live fully and avoid needing nursing home skilled care. I refer primarily to assisted living when possible and more recently I also like the options in many of the smaller personal care homes.
