Looking for assisted living solutions for seniors in Atlanta? Check out Dogwood Forest

I recently found out about an assisted living facility in Atlanta called DogwoodForest.com.  Now, I’m not about to put my mom in an assisted living facility or anything – as she says, she’s still a “spring chicken,” so no need – but I found out about this company through my job and I gotta say I like their style.

They are one of the only facilities using something called Simple C, a non drug alternative to helping make seniors lives happier.  For example, if you have alzhimers, instead of treating you with a bunch of drugs, the staff at this unique community actually create scrap books, scan them and show them to you because science apparently shows it increases brain activity.

Dogwood forest also uses their residents favorite music and other unique behavioral tools to make seniors lives happier.   Gotta say, if I did plan to have parents in an assisted living facility, or if I ever decided to retire in an assisted living community, this would definitely be the type I’d go for… (and maybe my mom would even dig it)!


Note: the term Nursing Home seems to have a bad stigma, so I left that alone, but I guess you could consider Dogwood Forest a nursing home with happy residents and staff.

Two steps to help hack-proof your wordpress blog

I’m restarting my wordpress blog after a recent hacker attack and I realize I’ve learned two valuable steps worth sharing to help hack-proof any wordpress blog .  Though simple, any blogger can keep their content safe by following these steps (NOTE: backing up your blog is something I was already doing prior to the hack, but I mention it here in case you aren’t already doing so):

1. Update wordpress software when WordPress tells you to update.

WordPress is great about issuing update notices that are easily visible when you log in to your dashboard.   However, I ignored them and thus got hacked due to an old installation of WordPress.  I just updated to the latest version again when I reinstalled and once again today thanks to these easy notices.

2. Follow Google’s advice:

So, last I posted I mentioned the new direction I was heading thanks to Life Visioning. That is going well and much more has come about since.

My company IndieHitMaker.com recently helped our client, One Less Reason, chart #1 in the country on the Billboard Heetseekers Album chart.  They even charged on the Billboard 200, Independent Artist and Hard Rock charts! That is truly incredible and we’re grateful to provide the service we do for all of our artists.

I’m also enjoying posting the daily messages / guidance at my other blog, www.askrealitylove.com. You can always find out what I’m focusing on mentally / spiritually there. In fact, check out the latest message here and subscribe if you like:

I’ve been enjoying Life Visioning: A Four-Stage Evolutionary Journey to Live as Divine Love from Michael Bernard Beckwith over the last few weeks (thanks in part to my good friend Ade), and as a result (CORRECTION: I realized later that this idea came up in a separate meditation session a day or so after a Life Visioning session), one of the steps I’ve taken is to launch a new spiritual website, book and musical CD.  More on this as it unfolds.

Another big step, and probably the most surprising for me of all, is that I’m pursuing a new  career in addition to some of my other entrepreneurial ventures. Its exciting and I’m grateful to have the clarity to pursue it.  Again, I’ll keep you abreast once more details have unfolded!

Love & Light!
