'Black Friday' has different meaning for county's senior care providers PDF Print E-mail

The day after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday.
But over at the Alzheimer’s Association of Northwest Ohio offices it’s known as “the one day out of the whole year that we get the most phone calls.”
It makes sense. The adult kids living far away have returned home to be with their parents for the holiday and had their eyes opened.
“She wore the same clothes three days in a row, there’s a big stack of bills. In the refrigerator you see the potato salad you bought them when you were last there in July,” said Lynn Ritter, education coordinator for the Alzheimer’s Association.
“She sounded fine over the phone” all those months in between. “The image she projected over the phone was very different,” but it’s obvious mom is in trouble.
Ritter was one of the members of a panel of local experts fielding audience questions on the challenges of caregiving during Monday’s Optimal Aging seminar at BGSU.

World War II veterans (top) who belong to the Troy-Webster American Legion Post gathered Saturday at the legion hall in Luckey to celebrate the 90th birthday of George Brinker, who served in the European Theater. Pictured are fellow vets (standing, from left) Art Helm, Brinker, George McCrary, Wayne Young, (front row, from left) Merril Shaffer, Glen Briggs and Lloyd Rolf. They represent most surviving members of the group of men who originally built the hall back in the late 1940s. Brinker and his wife now live in Florida, but are in Luckey for a brief visit. In the photo at bottom, Esther Spahn wishes Brinker a happy 90th birthday during the celebration.
