Cold, windy, dry weather can make winter skin care for seniors a particular challenge. Since our skin is more sensitive than it was when we were younger, the air conditions both inside and outside can lead to itching and flaking and that can become cracking and bleeding. This opens the door to more problems, including infection. The good news is that it’s all avoidable in most circumstances.
I’ve been working on my books to read in 2022 list for this year. I absolutely love reading, so this seemed like a pleasant thing to do. I decided that this year I would look to categories outside my usual favorite genres, to open my eyes to new things. It feels like a good year to focus on new beginnings.
Education for seniors is something I’d been interested in talking about for quite some time. I’ve hesitated to get into it because it’s a broad topic, and I hadn’t been able to find the focus I wanted to discuss in a piece as short as my weekly posts. With the new year and as I begin a new course of my own, I’ve decided that it’s about time I get my thoughts together and note some points on the page.
