Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there; even the mothers of furry friends!
As you prepare for the Memorial Day weekend and the kickoff to summer barbecues and fun, make sure to protect those you love. There are many ways to do this, especially if you have older family members. You want to make sure their bills are being paid and that they have healthy food available. But remember, socialization is the best way to keep the mind in a happy and safe place. So, don’t just provide for them, make sure to have friends and family visit them as well.
