  Blogging is a great way to share stories, information, personal experiences and practical advice from all corners of the world. It can bring people together in remarkable ways, particularly when the article is uplifting, inspiring or even when they touch a nerve and are hard to read for their brutal honesty.

Supporting family and friends as they get older   Kathy Lawrence is co-founder of the When They Get Older web site. When my parents first began to need real help I was so grateful to have friends who could give me the benefit of their experience. But there was still an awful lot to learn. From how the NHS works to why you need power of attorney and how to choose a care home, most of us are entering uncharted territory as our ageing friends and relatives need more support.

Together the two causes (as well as other less common causes) are believed to impair the lives of over 9 million UK residents (source: The RNID).

Seniors Helping Seniors, Canterbury & and Thanet    In our aging population, helping our older people live well is becoming increasingly vital to the health of our community and to the survival of our families. How we look after the less able members of our community is a strong indicator for our values, and the growth in ‘social enterprise’ or peer-to-peer exchanges of goods and services, driven by online technology, is starting to impact

We’re often told we have to exercise more and yet just the word can put people off! But what about the people who would like to exercise but can’t? The ones the fitness magazines with their six-packs and perfectly toned bodies often overlook? Those with disabilities and conditions which make getting out of bed, washed and dressed seem like running a marathon?
