Use play to head off winter blechs & blahs

Great article in The Guardian on the importance of playing with your children (see Links) which misses the equally vital importance of play straight across the age spectrum, as essential – and often neglected – in our 80s as at eight.

The BEST elder empowerer I know is Sarah, a master of hands-on care across the mental spectrum, an exceptional playfulness coach par excellence & skilled at snatching moments  to work on her novel.  Sarah has a gift for drawing out joy, glee from even those staring down the challenges of advanced Alzheimer’s.  My one sadness about this remarkable woman is that between her wait-listed cast of clients & her husband & her cat rescue/fostering & authoring, there’s no time to write the spirited guide to light-touch, wholehearted elder – or anyone – care.

Until she does, make do with a “Fun & Activities” article that gives some good basic ponters for keeping play in our lives at all ages, all stages!
