Cold Care for Car Health

Each winter, extremely cold weather is a possibility in many parts of the country. But if you take steps during the fall to get your car ready in advance, you can avoid dangerous winter travel problems. This means, maintain service on your car as suggested by the vehicle's manufacturer, check your antifreeze level, replace your windshield-wiper fluid with a mix for winter, change worn tires and check the air pressure and keep your gas tank nearly full to stop ice from building up in the tank and fuel lines.

Have An Elderly Parent with Alzheimer's?

Don't stay quiet and overwhelmed. If you have siblings, here are suggestions from the National Endowment for Financial Education. Call a meeting with your siblings to discuss your parent's cognitive decline, what needs to be done, and what caregiving roles each family member wishes to play. Set up a schedule for each sibling. Keep family members who do not live nearby updated with weekly emails or phone calls. Invite all siblings who wish to take on some responsibility to do so. If you're an only child, seek support groups in your community to talk and find help.
