Nursing Home Advocacy

Jan 31, 2020 A few years ago, I heard a story on the news about a long term care facility that was located on a busy road without sidewalks.

Space Heater Safety

Dec 20, 2019 With the drop in temperatures, I find myself using a space heater in the evenings.  I don’t need to keep my entire home toasty, but I do like to have my living room or office comfortably warm while I’m using the room.  So, a space heater makes sense for me. Safety is…
