Posted by Magnolia Manor on

But that’s not the case for everyone. If you really love your job, you may choose to stay with it longer; something that wasn’t an option to past generations who were forced to retire at age 65.

SNAP - Senior Food Assistance

Posted by Magnolia Manor on
September 15, 2021

It is unthinkable that any senior (or anyone) should go hungry because they cannot afford nutritious food. That’s why the SNAP program exists. Sadly, the National Council on Aging (NCOA) reports that 60% of seniors who qualify for SNAP benefits are going without simply because they haven’t applied. They believe one reason is a persistent myth that says seniors receive just $16 per month. This is far from the truth.

Senior Living Acronyms: What Do They All Mean?

Posted by Magnolia Manor on
July 15, 2021

What’s in a name? Shakespeare famously posed this question centuries ago, referring to a rose in Romeo and Juliet. Today, we’ve taken to reducing names we find too long to say or write easily to acronyms, using initials as a type of shorthand. They’re certainly more convenient. But although acronyms have become ubiquitous, many people don’t actually know what they stand for.

If you don’t know what they mean, acronyms aren’t convenient, they are confusing. In the senior living and care field, we’re just as guilty of using acronyms as those in any other field. But we don’t want our seniors and their loved ones to remain in the dark, so we thought it would be informative to explain some of the most common examples. Give yourself extra credit if you already know what these stand for!
