We at the Care Guide strive to inform you about health and wellness.  Just the basic common sense stuff mind you.

It’s really not rocket science.

One of the biggest things that we, as adult children, can for for our parents is to stay in touch.  

The greatest antidote for loneliness.  Regular phone calls go a long way toward keeping your mom or dad's spirits up and keep them from feeling lonely.  Hey grand kids and great grandchildren, you too should call!  

Living your senior years well means taking life head on - healthy eating, exercise, and less of the bad stuff, like smoking and drinking.

If you look after your body, you’ll feel better.

We have gathered some useful information about healthy eating from dieticians, the nutrients we need and the things that are bad for us.

Exercise is good for us.  We all know it.

A walk, simple exercises on a regular basis, that’s all it takes and we’ll give you some tips on these.

And last, but not at all least, a positive mental attitude

We present some interesting stuff on maintaining your emotional and mental well being.
