As an adult child of aging parents, accurate information is a vital part of caring for our parents.   With so many resources, it can be overwhelming, confusing & exhausting trying to decide which service is best for your parents AND for yourself while you juggle life’s many demands.  Join us  as we discuss how to make wise choices and how best to communicate with family, medical professionals and, most importantly, your parent!
 
Gretchen Napier joined the LifeLinks team to fulfill her passion for caring for aging adults, and affecting change for the geriatric care service industry. At a very young age, Gretchen saw how easy it is for aging adults to fall through the cracks of the healthcare system. Additionally, she saw how long-distance and broken family relationships can make caring for an aging loved one an overwhelming task. This inspired Gretchen to improve the quality of life for older adults and their families across America by growing LifeLinks.

Are the leaves on your favorite plant withered, covered in black spots, or curling and distorted? Is the growth of your fruit trees stunted? Do you see unusual growth on the trees in your backyard?

We will discuss the basics of plant pathology and how you can identify these pathogens by the damage they cause. Bring a sample for diagnosis.

Literary Ladies Book

Monday, May. 15, 6:00 p.m.
Our May book is A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman.  Ove is a curmudgeon who is trying to kill himself, but the neighbors keep getting in the way. We learn about Ove's life gradually and as the neighbors become slightly less annoying for Ove.  He may yet turn out to have a caring bone in his body.

Our June book is The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George. Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can't seem to heal through literature is himself.
