Two years ago my dad wandered off for the first time since being diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. He left the house in the middle of the night while my mom was still sleeping. Thankfully, he was wearing his MedicAlert bracelet, and was safely reunited with my mom within about an hour of leaving the house.
He is 68 years old and was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s eight years ago. Over the past few years, the disease has slowly progressed and he now needs to have someone with him at all times.
This summer, millions of families will embark on their annual vacation getaways. Although summer adventures bring much excitement, packing and readying the car for travel can be the most stressful part of vacation.
If you are planning on hitting the highway this summer, always remember travel safety starts even before you leave the driveway.
Ensuring your car, SUV, or motorhome maintenance is complete, and that luggage of every type is properly secured is a recommended start toward safe travels.
Today, a vast majority of the Western United States is undergoing heightened restrictions on both indoor and outdoor water usage.

Memorial weekend is just around the corner, unofficially marking it as the start of summer. For many, it’s the first opportunity of summer to enjoy some serious outdoors grilling, traveling, swimming, and boating.
