Cindy Williams’ Visiting Angels Commercial

We are thrilled that Cindy Williams is promoting Visiting Angels in 2 new TV commercials! Cindy Williams, as you remember, portrayed Shirley Feeney in Laverne & Shirley, a sitcom which ran from 1976 to 1983. Penny Marshall co-starred as Laverne De Fazio. The series, set in the 1950s, followed the madcap adventures of the two roommates who worked as bottlecappers in a Milwaukee brewery. Williams is not only a renowned actress, she’s also a producer and new author. Her recently released first book is a memoir entitled, Shirley, I Jest!: A Storied Life.

Watch the commercials now by clicking the Visiting Angels image above and/or let us know when you see it during your favorite cable TV show.

What are our clients are saying in NJWe recently received a five star home care review from the daughter of a client in Ewing, New Jersey:

“I did a Google search and found Visiting Angels; I was also familiar with them initially. Rudy [Co-owner and Managing Director] came out to visit and did a very nice interview with my mom. The service was good, and the caregiver—she’s very sweet and upbeat—did well considering how tough my mom is! I was very happy with Visiting Angels.”—Patricia, Ewing, NJ

Winter + New Jersey = Icy, Snowy Weather!

Forecasters have predicted possible snow this week in the New Jersey area. Many elder care experts agree that driving ability tends to decrease after the age of 55, but this doesn’t mean that senior drivers can’t still enjoy safe driving–even in our winter weather.

These tips will help older drivers have more confidence when driving in winter months:

  • Maintain your vehicle–check cooling systems, tire pressure, battery, wipers, windshield washer fluid, brakes, anti-freeze, fuel and air filters, heat & defrost systems
  • Install high-quality winter tires–all-weather radial tires are usually sufficient
  • Drive only while well-rested
  • Keep an emergency kit in your car–shovel, ice scraper, flashlight, battery-powered radio, blanket, road salt/sand, extra mittens/hats, snack food, booster cables, emergency flares, first aid kit, distress flags
  • Plan your route–check www.traffic.com for road conditions

Singing Familiar Show Tunes Helps Those With Dementia

A new study has shown singing show tunes has helped raise cognitive abilities of people who have dementia. Nursing home residents were involved in the study. One half of the group participated in singing show tunes, while the other half just listened. The half who sang showed improvement in a cognitive exam. The group met three times a week for 50 minute sessions. While singing is definitely not a cure for dementia, it’s an activity that has been proven to engage and help those with Alzheimer’s and other dementia. It’s also an activity in which we can participate with our loved one; it’s fun and doesn’t cost much. So break out the show tunes recordings and start singing!
