In the past three months we started providing home care to two elderly gentlemen, one in Rochester Hills, the other in Troy.   Both had strokes.  The client in Rochester Hills is a retired General Motors engineer, very intelligent.  The Troy client was the owner of a stamping company.  The Rochester Hill client does have some paralysis in his right hand and leg, but he is mobile enough to get by.  The Troy client has no paralysis.  The most striking effect of their strokes is that they have Aphasia.  You may ask what is Aphasia?  Its damage to the neuro-connection in the brain that impairs a person to speak, understand other people and may also affect their ability to read or write.  This condition can also occur from head trauma, brain tumors or from infections.

Well the signs of fall are here.  The temperature certainly is cooler than a month ago, the sun doesn’t rise till after 7 AM and the leaves are starting to change color.  What a fantastic time to get outside and go for a walk.  We under estimating benefits of walking.  Regardless of age, walking for few minutes per day will show significant improvements in a person endurance, flexibility and attitude.  This is especially beneficial for the elderly that are struggling to control their blood sugar.
