Games Can Stop Being Fun
Over one 20-year period, gambling rose from 20% of seniors to 50%. Admittedly gambling isn’t automatically destructive. It’s not unusual for seniors (and others) to schedule regular events at a local resort or even treat themselves to traveling to places like Las Vegas.
So the key isn’t always how often someone gambles; it’s how destructive the gaming becomes. Here are a few warning signs from the Nevada Council on Problem Gambling for both gamblers and loved ones: Family should start wondering what’s happening as their budget keeps losing unexpected dollars...and not from any emergency or agreed upon extra expense.
Gamblers need to admit they’re getting angry, abusive, excuse-making for no decent reasons. Loved ones need to start admitting they see such behaviors and determine if a loved one has slipped into regularly lying.
Has a loved one abandoned their regular hobbies and/or fitness activities?
Another warning: Seniors may actually show signs of dementia as they forget they’re losing money, and so just keep gambling.
Remember: destructive gambling is considered an illness and needs treatment. One simple resource: the Gamblers Anonymous website. It can help you find local meetings and even has a “Talk to someone now” icon.

We’re Not “Kid-neying” ‘Bout Organ Safety
A WALK OF HEALING - March 2019
Because March is National Kidney Month, we thank the National Kidney Foundation for some key insights and reminders regarding kidney health.
What kidney disease can cause:
Heart attack and other heart/artery issues
Weak bones (osteoporosis)
High blood pressure
Anemia (low red blood cells)
And ultimately stroke and/or total kidney failure
Your risk factors
Of course you need to be cautious if you have a family, history, but even without that, three key conditions put you at risk. First if you already have high blood pressure and/or diabetes. And if you’re age 60 or older, that’s another risk.
Don’t pass these off. Get a check-up!
Any body swelling, such as hands, ankles, feet and/or your abdomen.
Bloody or foamy urine
Pain while urinating or having difficulties
If you’re totally fatigued that alone may be a warning, but especially if your tiredness comes with any of the others.To remember these details you can access this quick infographic. For more info, check the Foundation’s site: kidney.org. Their toll-free helpline #: 1-855-653-2273
