    Mobile Apps for the Caregiver - from AARP??

    in Technology

    When you think of AARP, do mobile apps come to mind? AARP is known to provide discounts to is members, provide branded insurance products, and lobby on behalf of Social Security and Medicare. Recently, this same non-profit has released two mobile apps - targeting the Caregiver community.


    A caregiver is a term for anyone who helps or provides care to another individual, often a parent or spouse, in handling their daily activities. The caregiver can be paid, such as a nurse, but is more often an unpaid relative. And the person receiving care is often suffering an impairment, and/or dealing with health issues.


    These two apps released by AARP (for iOS and Android) provide features designed to help in providing care. For instance, the apps help manage medications, keep a schedule of doctor's appointments and other medical needs, and create and maintain notes you want to share with the doctor. But will this work? Does this actually help someone take care of a loved one? Are these features unique? Are they really the features that a Caregiver needs?


    On May 28th, at a special 11am EST/8am Pacific time, we will be joined by Trisha San Diego of AARP, who is the driving force behind the creation and release of these Apps, and we'll ask her these questions.


    We'll talk about these apps and ask if there is a sign of things to come from AARP?  


    Tune in Live at 11am EST, Thursday, May 28th!

    #252 Ideas for Toddlers Who Don't Sit Still for Speech Therapy

    in Parents

    Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP as she provides ideas for a mom who complained that her child can't sit still to work with her on developing language and has difficulty maintaining attention during therapy sessions. 


    From Laura... Here's the truth... MANY late talking toddlers can't (not WON'T) sit still. We'll BRIEFLY talk about why that is and then move on to ideas that WORK for our friends who need to move, move, move. Here's a list of things I do with my busiest little friends:



    Do what they like!
    Decrease demands overall so that a child doesn't feel "forced." Participation is your ONLY goal. This can dramatically help!!
    Don't sit... MOVE! Target language during gross motor movement or outside playground activities such as sliding, jumping on a trampoline, swinging, etc...
    Try social games where moving is a part of the game - Ring Around the Rosies, Row Row Your Boat, Ride a Little Horsie - verbal routines during those games to target receptive and expressive language.
    Introduce play that involves moving - improvise a basketball game even without a hoop, bowling, launcher toys, and relay games
    Work on Structured Teaching Tasks - TEACCH method
    Over time begin to alternate activities move - sit - move - sit
    Modify a child's space so that movement is less of an option. Beware....belting them into a high chair is usually NOT a good option! 
    Don't try strategies for older children like "if/then." Many times our little friend DON'T understand that promise.
    Reinforce sitting.

    Urban Therapy with Sun #134 Make Up Sex Fightin' And F******

    in Lifestyle

    Make up sex. What exactly is it? What's it to you?


    Is it a good thing? A bad thing? Something that all couples do? Something that has become more popular in the media in recent years? Is it safe? Is it dangerous? Is it something that makes up for an argument? Does it end with just an argument or disagreement or is violence sometimes what's being made up for?


    Are there people who actually start arguments or fights in order to initiate make up sex? Would someone do that?


    Is the sexual energy that comes after an argument healthy? Can it be unhealthy?


    Is make up sex really just a cover up for domestic violence?


    If you like make up sex but the person that you're with doesn't like it or understand it, how will that work? Can that work?


    Do most people who engage in make up sex usually know what they are getting into or does it get introduced to some people at the most inopportune times? Can you learn to like it and if so what does that say about a person?


    Boy are we gonna get into this one. The question is how will we get out of this one? LOL

    Urban Therapy with Sun #133 Can Eating It Make Me Happy?

    in Health

    This show is kinda about eating disorders but not all the way.
    Does food make some people feel better? Does it substitute for other deficiencies in people's lives?

    Recently I put out a question on Facebook dealing with this situation: I just heard a conversation between two women in the fitness room and one of them was saying that she gained a lot of weight because she didn't have a man for a long time.

    Huh? Loneliness = weight gain?

    Can someone explain this logic to me?

    One of the things that many responders eluded to was that the woman in this example probably compensated her loneliness with food. Is this true? Can that work? Are there many people who resort to this?

    Can eating unhealthy foods make a person feel better emotionally? If so, why does it have to be the unhealthy foods that do the trick? When does it stop? Is it a woman thing? Do men go through this as well? If men go through the same thing then is it for the same reasons?
    Will men or women change their lifestyle when or if they get what they have been missing?

    We'll get into these things and more and we'll also talk about turning all of this around and how eating nutritional foods can also cause emotional problems.

    This show will be the absolute bomb! Tell some friends.

    Urban Therapy with Sun #132 Through with The Man/Woman But Not The Kids

    in Family

    What happens when you end a relationship with someone but you have forged a really strong bond with the kids during your relationship with your ex man/woman even though the kids aren't your biological kids? You may have had a hand in raising that so how do you handle that? Do you have the right to keep a relationship with them? How would that work? Could you set up visitation rights to still see the kids even though you're no longer with the mother/father nor are the kids your biological kids? Yeah, this is a serious situation.


    What happens when the kids ask where you are and when you're coming back around? What about when it is explained why you are gone and why you won't be back to stay? What do you do about missing them? Is that like divorcing the kids even though they aren't your biological kids?


    Do the kids have to sneak and see you? Do you have to sneak and see the kids?


    What about when either of you begin a new relationship with someone else? How do you explain to them that you just love the kids and probably still do for them but you're not dealing witht the ex anymore? Would you believe that if your new love told you that? Would a situation like that get in the way?


    Some people who have been in this stuation have actually taken custody of the kids? How does that work?


    Do you still keep doing for the kids that are not your own kids and if so, for how long?


    This is your show right here! Tell all your friends and relatives to tune into this one because it's gonna be something else!
