Hello. I’m PepiSmartDog. Senior Care Tips, written by Francy Dickinson, is a blog full of love. Every article overflows with warmth, love and genuine care.
Getting old is something that eventually visits everyone. As a dog, they call me a Golden Oldie. As a person, you are just called old. I think I get the better deal; Golden Oldie sounds so much more inviting. Today’s society doesn’t have a lot of time for old people (or old animals either.) This is why this Senior Care Tips blog is such an important piece of work.
Even if you don’t have an elderly person to care for, if you yourself are feeling down and in need of some warmth and comfort, visit Fancy’s blog. Her beautifully worded articles will lift your spirits and brighten your outlook. At the same time, Francy will invigorate your soul with her persuasive positiveness.
You may arrive at Francy’s blog feeling tired, worn out and in a helpless situation, but when you leave you will feel so much better ! Francy helps you steer a course with a plan of action. She gives practical advice that makes sense and tips she uses in her own life.
Each article is centered around letters that readers write in, from their own real-life situations. Francy answers them with clear insight and positive practicality. She even shares recipes that best suit elderly people. And she’s not afraid to tackle the difficult subjects either, for example: ‘Alzheimer’s Anger Too Hard To Handle Alone.’
As if all this is not enough, Francy also hosts Francy’s BlogTalk Radio. Listening to Francy’s voice on her radio show, you’ll feel as though Francy was right there in your living room, with you.
Francy & George: a love story
Francy’s husband George, has advanced Alzeimers and Francy is his full time carer. She understands all the dynamics that wear you down, when you are the sole carer. But she has a wonderful gift of knowing how to turn a bad situation into something constructive and positive. Hence, her blog Senior Care Tips was born.
A truly beautiful and heartfelt article I recommend everyone read (because it represents Francy’s entire blog), is: Alzheimer’s Valentine Secret Surprise (2011.) With George’s severe alzheimer’s, would he even know it was Valentine’s Day, net alone remember ? Throughout their marriage, Francy and George always enjoyed making Valentine’s Day ‘their special day.’ George always spoiled Francy on this day, taking her to dinner and/or shows. It was their day !
With the ravages of time and the quiet creeping up of advanced alzheimers, George still remembered his Queen ! His Francy ! Their Valentines Day ! Peering through swollen allergy eyes, Francy couldn’t believe it when George stood infront of her with his handmade Valentine card.
With tears of joy and disbelief streaming down her face, Francy knew that not even alzheimer’s could take away the love her and George still have for each other, deep within their hearts. As I often say to Pals: time and space don’t change a thing; they mean nothing. The love is still there.
George cut out pictures of jewelry, the same type of jewelry he had previously bought Francy on Valentine’s Days gone by. If you want to read a remarkable love story, take the time to read this article. *I recommend having a tissue near -by, for good tears, not sad tears*
Francy’s own words, at the bottom of her articles:
“Thank you for being so kind to your seniors. Many elders find their lives closed in to just their own home. They lose their spouses, friends pass, children are out-of-town and who do they have to help them? So good to know that you care enough to be on the other end of the phone. Blessings, Francy.”
