links #3: practical guidance

This is the first blog I read when I joined Wordpress and it remains a source of valuable information.

Elderly Sitting is a very practical and useful blog for anyone living or working or visiting with older people. The author has experience working with elderly people who need assistance and their caregivers who need a break. 

I have gotten some good ideas from this blog and have had some approaches to working with my mother confirmed by someone who has much more experience than I.

I’ve found that sometimes information on other sites or from other sources is not really detailed enough to be helpful. What I appreciate about Elderly Sitting is that it is specific. For example, there was a blog entry about knitting that mentioned working simpler patterns, using larger needles and chunkier yarn and other handy tricks. It came at the perfect time – Mom and I were starting to knit up a storm!

There are other notes about diseases, diet and so on that provide valuable information. From the information on the blog, it appears that the author is in South Africa – so amazing that I can get tips about my mother from someone half a world away, but … there you go! She also has a blog called Make It 4 Me that showcases her crochet work.

If you have an elderly person in your life, check out the practical advice on this blog and if you like to crochet, you’ll find a friend in Maxine!
