Do you Know Someone ?

Helping Seniors Marietta GA

Every single person on this
earth has a gift. Do you know
someone who has
compassion and a desire to
share their gifts with others?
Could this someone be you?
If so, we invite all to join us.
Perhaps it’s a gift of music,
crafting, or the gift of time.
Whatever it may be, stepping
out to share our gifts is
always a great occasion.
Limited on time? Imagine
how good it would feel to take
just 30 minutes out of a

month, to read to someone
who cannot read, to visit
someone who is lonely.
Your gift does not need to be
perfect, it just needs to be
given.
Volunteering is a work of
heart! If you or someone you
know could be interested,
please reach out! We have
plenty of opportunities to suit
any talent and schedule.

A Healing Visit

A Healing Visit Legacy Ridge at Marietta
A Healing Visit Legacy Ridge at Marietta
When this happened, our residents could feel the vibrations throughout their bodies, creating a state of relaxation similar to that achieved during meditation. The beautiful sounds resonated with every one of us. Words cannot describe the peacefulness we all felt individually, and collectively. Ahhhhh!

Singing bowls have a rich history dating back to ancient times, initially used in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition for meditation and  healing practices. Research has shown that the vibrations produced by singing bowls can have a  profound impact on our physical and emotional well-being, lowering stress levels, blood  pressure, anxiety, depression, and
more.

Decker D’Alesio, a master in the art and science of singing bowl sound meditations, recently paid us a visit! He let every resident touch, hold and feel each bowl, as he tapped
each one with a soft mallet.

Take Care of You

Caregiver Senior Living

“There are only four kinds of people in the world. Those who have been caregivers. Those who are currently caregivers. Those who will be caregivers, and those who will need a caregiver.”
— Rosalyn Carter

As caregiving is very fulfilling, yet, can be overwhelming, we need to find a balance in this role. It may seem as though we cannot possibly take time for ourselves. But, if we cannot gain restoration, and if we don’t take time to give
ourselves some caregiving, our role will seem heavier. Our nerves can get frazzled easily, and we can become exhausted and tense. Here are some tips that can be useful for anyone who is overwhelmed with their schedule.
Make time for yourself. Call a friend to take your place while you take a
bubble bath.

Eat plenty of nutritious foods. Join a caregiver support group, either in person or online. It is a relief to know you are not alone. Perhaps you could find a network of other caregivers and create a network of respite assistance.

Remember, everything is temporary. Find fun activities to do with your loved one. Walk in the fresh air, ask your loved one to help with a suitable chore, sing songs together. And remember: “The only control you have is over the changes you choose to make.”
― Nancy L. Kriseman
