Modifications that I believe can benefit anyone whose home has become their sole environment - - all winter long.
Recently, I had the opportunity to join an online support group. The ALS Minnesota/North Dakota/South Dakota Chapter uses GoToMeeting.com for their monthly meetings. Last January, I was their guest speaker; all the group’s members were in their own homes scattered across the chapter's three states, watching me on their computer screens while I presented from Arizona. I hope more ALS support groups adopt this innovative approach!
Take a look around you and draw up a list of changes your space needs in order to better prepare for the winter days ahead. Have a brain-storming session with your caregiver or family. Consider adding a few potted plants, bright colors on the walls or colorful designs on blankets and pillow covers.
You have control. Know that this year, you CAN outsmart the winter blues!
