Aging Parents Checklist: Important Things To Make Note Of



Older adults are prone to numerous health conditions that impair their movement and overall health. They need constant attention and periodic medical care to live through some of these issues. If you’re a child to such a parent, you may have to assume caregiving responsibility. Here are important things to note as you plan to care for your aging parents.

Resources Near You

The mistake that many people make when dealing with older people is to generalize rather than identify their specific needs and ailments. After deciding to be a caregiver for your aging parent, the first step is to conduct a thorough assessment of their needs. You can consult a clinician to help you understand the health status of your aging parent.

The insights from the needs assessment can determine helpful resources on your caregiving journey, whether you’re looking to register for at home senior care or recruit a personal assistant. Understanding your parent’s situation can enable you to create an elderly care plan that serves your aging parent well.


Shouldering all the work involved in caring for your aging parent can be draining. Recruiting a professional caregiver to attend to your parent’s needs can be the best decision to guarantee their comfort. Caregivers can play several roles, from feeding to administering medication, depending on your aging parent’s situation.

It pays to balance efforts from both sides to avoid burnout. Whether you’re caring for your parent alone or enlisting a professional caregiver’s services, it’s helpful to be fully familiar  with their medication. Keep a medication tool kit to help you store all medication in one place. Attaching prescriptions to each drug can also be a good idea. Ensure to have your licensed pharmacist on standby to ensure you don’t run out of medication.

Develop A Financial Plan

Many people go on retirement expecting to enjoy the rest and leisure time they must have missed while working. However, only a few get to see experience this reality. Unforeseen circumstances like sicknesses or the loss of a partner can make life difficult for retirees. This is where your aging parent’s savings, investments, and insurance come in handy.

You can step in to sanitize the details from these financial sources, ensuring you’re up to date if your aging parent is unable to pull the strings. You can also consult with a financial expert to harmonize your parent’s revenue sources into a comprehensive financial plan, setting it up for future growth.

Prioritize Your Parents Safety

Falls among older people have become a major health risk in the United States. Studies show that one in four older adults in the United States, constituting more than 36 million people, fall each year. While a huge part of these statistics depends on the weaknesses in the joints of older people, not adhering to safe practices at home can worsen things.

For instance, you may be doing your aging parent a great disservice if you have poorly lit rooms with items and furniture haphazardly everywhere.

All in all, you may have crossed the first hurdle by deciding to care for your aging parent. These tips can make things a little less difficult as you embark on this noble journey.

George Pelgrim donates new bus to the elderly



With many things going on in the world, from geopolitics to climate change, it is easy to forget the individual people making a difference on a daily basis in our local communities. Today we’re happy to be sharing a story of how Mr. George Pelgrim has donated a brand new bus to “The Home Away from Home Taking Care of The Golden Age”, and the senior citizens living there.

Today the foundation has more than a hundred people working to make life a little easier for the elderly, and provides a great community service that benefits not just the people living there, but also their families, as well as the people working for the foundation.

Initial fundraising

The project was first put into motion back in 2017, where the foundation started fundraising for a new bus. Originally they contacted local businesses to ask for their support, and slowly the worked their way up to an impressive $4,000. But then Hurricane Irma came along and changed things on St. Maarten, and the fundraising efforts faded out due to more urgent things.

Once the aftermath of Hurrican Irma was winding down, and people resuming a semblance of their regular lives, a new life changing indicent took place. Covid-19. Once more, fundraising for the bus took a back seat, with the focus now being shifted on helping people affected by the global virus.

But all things that are worth doing, are worth doing right. And so The Golden Age foundation stayed patient, and once the wave of Covid-19 ebbed out, they resumed their efforts on fundraising. In this wave of fundraising, they got in contact with Mr. George Pelgrim. He had already a long track record of philanthropy and providing for the local community in St. Maarten, and from there things moved fast.

With the added contribution from Mr. George Pelgrim, as well as the other generous sponsors, finally the foundation reached their goal of being able to afford a new bus for the elderly living at the Home Away from Home. The foundation plans to use the bus for excursions into nature, for outdoor activities and even various errands when the seniors have the need to go somewhere far away.

“We are thankful for people like Mr. George Pelgrim, who do great things for our community.  St. Maarten is a small island, but it’s full of people with big hearts.  St. Maarten should be proud when things like this happen” – Samuel Lake.

The partnership between The Golden Age Foundation and George Pelgrim will only get better and continue to do bigger things on St. Maarten.  According to the foundation’s president Patricia Flanders, the official presentation ceremony of the brand new Toyota Bus will take place in May 2022.  Members of the press and other sponsoring partners will be present at the event to witness the official unveiling of the new bus.  George Pelgrim has arranged for the bus to be wrapped, displaying the logos of the other sponsors who contributed to The Golden Age Foundation.

“I am so happy to be a part of such a worthy cause.” – George Pelgrim

Therefore, Tristan is going to conduct a pro-chess operation in his locality, Denton County, Texas. Here, he aims to spread his passion for the game. At the same, he hopes that the local youngsters acquire some of the qualities that playing chess has granted him. Such as a sharper mind, strategic thinking, and perseverance.

Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager: Early Life

Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager lives in Sanger. Although he spent his childhood in Haslet, Texas. The city has a population of only 1600 people. And the area is around twenty-three square kilometers. However, despite its small size, the city still has its parts in two counties- Tarrant County and Denton County, Texas

This small town was Tristan’s home when he was a kid. As a child, he always had a knack for the outdoors and sports. Therefore, he spent much of his childhood as a boy scout. The adventurous and active life of scouts held much appeal to him. And he always excelled in the scouting activities.

Apart from scouting, Tristan’s other childhood passion was baseball. He was a promising player from the beginning. On the local baseball team, he was a valued member and a much sought-after player. Plus, the sport taught Tristan important lessons on physical and mental toughness.

Scouting and baseball both laid the necessary physical and mental foundation that would help Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager later in his life to carry on his social work.

Taking Up Chess

Although mostly an outdoors kid, the game of chess attracted the intellectually sound mind of Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager at a very early age. Chess gave Tristan something that most sports and outdoor activities lack. And that is, playing a game of war without putting too much strain on your muscles.

Tristan saw that chess has many benefits. The black and whiteboard with its sixty-four squares and thirty-two pieces opened up a new world for the boy. First of all, he saw that chess lets him use his immense energy in a more focused and useful way. As a result, he was spending less time outdoors and getting in fewer troubles.

Secondly, chess lets him use the muscle that has lesser application in baseball and scouting- the intellectual mind. As he got more into the game, Tristan discovered that chess is making his mind sharper.

Plus, it was teaching him to solve conflicts and conduct his business with strategies and logical thinking. In short, chess was his transition to maturity. Or, one might say chess forged Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager into the calm, composed intellectual that he is today.

Yeager’s Chess Co-Operative In Denton County Texas

When Yeager was growing up in his hometown and learning to play chess, there was one thing that used to make him sad. And that is he had no one to play with. Because in that small town in Denton County, Texas, few adults knew how to play chess properly. So, it’s no wonder there weren’t many young chess players around.

So, Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager is creating a chess club for the young people in that locality. And his visions are both noble and ambitious.

Firstly, he wants the youngsters to benefit from chess the same way he had back when he was growing up. Tristan believes that chess is going to make the club participants sharper in mind and improve their strategic thinking skills. And as he has experienced, the game turns its players into mature individuals.

At the same time, a chess club can be a great spot for young people to socialize and connect with like-minded people. And consequently, it will encourage them to keep away from drugs and petty crimes.


Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager believes that starting a chess club in his locality is one of the best initiatives that can be taken to improve the lives of young people. However, that doesn’t mean this club is going to limit itself to only Denton and Sanger.

Under his conduct and guidance, Tristan’s chess initiatives shall spread to other areas too.
