Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Bettercaring / My Opinion

I have an aunt who is in a "Board & Care." facility and luckily, is doing fine. Before placing her there, I had to look at dozens of places, including home care, board and care, nursing homes, all types of facilities, and most were disgusting. My mother is 85 and my step dad is 92. I may have to do the same thing with them. What seemed to be missing, for me, was an easy to use place that could answer my questions about "Better Caring." Well, I have been asked to evaluate a web site called "bettercaring." This was a natural for me. As I looked through the site what struck me was the ease-of-use. It might seem silly, but I also thought the colors were soft and easy on the eyes.

There was an easy to use forum for questions. Some of the topics were quite relevant, including continuing to manage at home or entering a care home, searching for a living situation and how to obtain funds to pay for these situations.

I was also impressed with their searching for care situation feature. I was VERY impressed with the ability to increase the size of the type upon request.

It seems that the creator of this website has taken into account the fact that many elderly people will be using this site. WELL DONE.

I do, however, have only one suggestion to make this site better:

  1. It seems to only be for the UK. I would like to see this expand for other countries like the USA.
Overall, I think that this site serves a critical need, and from what I have seen, I am very impressed.

There is a possibility that I may have need for that site for myself in a few years. I certainly hope someone in the U.S. picks of the idea. Hmmmm… I’m someone.

Nick,

You certainly are someone!! Let's hope that this does not become a need for you too soon.

Mel,
What a wonderful thing for you to do. So many of us are facing these types of issues.

I know it was very difficult when I went through the process with my mother.

I truly don't know how you manage to keep up.

And, to top it all off...I am here to tag you with a friendship ABC meme. It's simple as pie and is all about spreading some love links.

Even if you don't get a chance to do it...at least you just got linked at my site!!

Have a great week-end,
Jackie:)

Shinade,
I will be over to check it out, but I honestly do not know if I will have time to participate.

As far as Bettercaring goes, this is a Smorty deal that I accepted because I really liked the site and thought that it was a critical need.

I got that same email suggesting a critique. Nice to see you did b4 I...My man's dad is in a home now and we are getting to move him. A site like this would be nice to have. Obviously there's a big need.

Today, I posted a small excerpt from my book. If you can, come by and give me your thoughts -- and have a grrr8 Friday.

Chuck,

There is a crying need for a uncomplicated usable site like this in the US.

I'll come over and take a look.

So, I do not really imagine this is likely to have success.
