Senior Friendly (Or not so friendly) Places

Getting Organized

I always like to start the New Year out on a fresh note. That means everything is in its place with minimum clutter.

Many of you know, last year I moved from a home with 3,000 square feet to an 800 square foot condo. I must say I have no regrets. My new mantra is,"Small spaces, work less and live more"

I find that the downsizing and ridding myself of clutter has made me happier, with a feeling of control. I have surrounded myself with things that I truly love, so my home is my sanctuary.

Si Senor~ is Senior Friendly

Many thanks to the entire staff at Si Senor~ Westlake for making an afternoon outing so special for an SCS client yesterday. This gentleman lived in California for many years and knows good Mexican food. Although he resides in a nursing facility, we go on an excursions every week. Yesterday, he felt like Mexican food and I knew just where to go.

We have been going to Si Senor~ for many years now. It's been a place to celebrate family birthdays and any other special occasion. Their food is delicious, plentiful and affordable.

Emerald Necklace Inn, A Senior Friendly Business

It's always a pleasure when I find a senior-friendly business to blog about. Such is the case with the Emerald Necklace Inn. The establishment is a bed and breakfast with a tea room, a quaint tea store, a salon and spa all nestled at an entrance way to the MetroParks on the corner of Story and Lorain Roads.

If that's not enticing enough, it's Owner/ Inn Keeper Gloria Cipri-Kemer is a kind, spirited and compassionate woman with a caring heart for seniors and the infirm. She gladly opens her salon to provide a time of beauty for all of her clients, some of whom have been with her for more than 15 years.

Hats Off to Dr. Judith Maher


 

As you know at SCS when we come across an exceptional professional, caregiver, service, or organization we like to shout it from the rooftops. This is the case withDr. Judith Maher,a neurologist within the Cleveland Clinic Health System.

I recently joined a client on a visit to Dr. Maher’s Avon office. Dr. Maher and her entire team demonstrated their compassion and dedication to patients right from the start of our visit. What a joy to observe this fine physician take her time with her patients.

Hats Off To Mahle's Restaurant

It always gives me great pleasure to write about a buiness that goes out of their way for seniors. Just today, two of my clients told me about their wonderful experience at Mahle's Restaurant in Westlake. They waxed on and on about the wonderful food, the reasonable prices, the warm and comfy ambiance and then they told me the best part of the story.
 
They were so very grateful for the friendliness of the waitress. How despite a very busy night, the owner made a table for them and seated them almost immediately  because they were exhausted from a day that hadn't worked out as planned.
