Life is Sharing
This blog was inspired by the recent encounters I had with my caregivers. Many of them feel like they are alone. I want you to know you are NOT. For this blog post, I decided to do something I do not usually do – I want to share other stories, by links, in the media that chronicle the caregivers plight.

Hello, Welcome to the Evolve Senior Solutions, LLC blog by A RN: Disclosed also known as Danielle Harris . Welcome to Spring 2018! Today’s blog post is in regards to scams. I felt the need to write this blog about scams, because with the warmer weather, sometimes the people doing these scams present themselves because they want money to do activities in the warmer weather. I am an advocate for protecting seniors from scams. To protect seniors from scams, the most important key is being aware. Aware that they exist. Aware enough to be suspicious. Another key is to stay involved, many times scammers target neighborhoods, so if your neighbor tells you about some interesting opportunity that magically appeared then you will have the heads up before the scammer gets to you.

The word holistic is derived from the Greek “holos,” which means “whole, entire, or complete”. When we look at something holistically, we are viewing the “whole” entity made up of interconnected parts, rather than independent parts. ⛛ Holistic Nursing is defined as “all nursing practice that has healing the whole person as its goal” (American Holistic Nurses’ Association, 1998).

Hello! Thank you for visiting the official Evolve Senior Solutions, LLC blog. Today’s blog is about self-care. Merriam-Webster, Incorporated has defined as: care for oneself. September 22 – the beginning of Fall! Since the beginning of a new season is approaching, I want to take the opportunity to discuss self-care; in the hopes that it will encourage you to begin a plan to care for yourself. I want to say - Self-Care Is Not an Indulgence. It's A Discipline. It’s Important. It’s Essential. It’s Necessary. Self-care is care provided for you – by you. Have you ever tried to share an empty glass juice with a friend? There is nothing to share. The same concept applies when you attempt to care for your loved one with no “juice”/energy in you, there is nothing to give to them. A well-known quote - "You can't pour from an empty cup" Looking after yourself is key to physical, emotional and mental well-being. Self-care is about identifying your own unique nee
