August 2011 RetirementConnect

Welcome to the August edition of RetirementConnect, your newsletter for a happier, healthier, and wealthier life. This month, we have four experts sharing knowledge on caregiving, technology, health and nutrition. The last month has featured a lot of financial scares, from the White House to Wall Street, and we here at, and our newsletter, RetirementConnect, want to let you know that whatever money scares there may be, it shouldn't stop you from enjoying a happy and healthy retirement, and learning the tips to make your retirement even better. This month, we have:

Jeff Hertz from Hertz Supply shares tips on how making small changes to a room’s décor can have a big impact on the health and emotional happiness of your parent or loved one.

Chris Bint from the Elder Technology Assistance Group (ETAG) gives a crash course on social media, which will allow you to keep in touch whenever you want.

Cynthia Ross-Cravit gives us the lowdown on five foods that we always thought were unhealthy, but recent studies suggest they’re actually good for us.

Terry Corcoran from the Well Spouse Association dispels myths about exactly what hospice care means, and why it's not as bad as you think.
