Forty-three percent of seniors report feeling lonely on a regular basis, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. During the holidays, those numbers may be amplified, thanks to the “holiday blues,” which can cause irritability, fatigue and sadness, according to the American Psychological Association. Knowing how to care for and support your aging loved ones in small ways can help reduce some of that loneliness and help you connect with them on a deeper level.

ALCA Press Release
As a national association comprised mostly of women, the Aging Life Care Association® (ALCA) recently took a closer look at the entrepreneurial spirit fueling the Aging Life Care™ profession. A recent poll of ALCA female members reveals that 84% are small business owners. And of those women that do not own their own business, half work for a woman-owned small business.
And their business? Providing guidance and care management for older adults and others facing ongoing health challenges. These women entrepreneurs have made a business of helping and caring for others.

ALCA Press Release
“No matter how much planning one does before a natural disaster—be it a hurricane, tornado, earthquake, fire, or flood—its arrival can often feel like a complete surprise. And for aging seniors, evacuating often comes with its own set of difficulties. With hurricane season still in effect and early winter storms blanketing parts of the country in snow, Aging Life Care Professionals® are urging all aging adults to make sure they are prepared with a plan.”
As the population grows older, the need for aging life care managers grows. People can learn more about becoming an aging life care professional at a conference this weekend in Raleigh.
Visit the ALCA Newsroom for additional news articles and press releases on the association, Aging Life Care™, Aging Life Care Professionals™, and Geriatric Care Management.
