grandparents and grandkids

Kaye Swain Keller Williams REALTOR who is moving to Roseville CaliforniaHello and HAPPY ULTIMATE BLOG PARTY 2014 – otherwise known as #UBP14. I'm Kaye Swain, caregiver, grandmother, and REALTOR® and this is my website to share real estate information, resources, and assistance for fellow boomers and seniors dealing with the various issues that come with this season of life. Things like:

  • aging in place
  • caring for elderly parents
  • power of attorney issues
  • reverse mortgages
  • universal design options
  • zero step entry
  • multigenerational home needs
  • mother-in-law quarters
  • granny cottages
  • grab bars
  • senior gardening projects
  • babysitting grandkids
  • and plenty more….

As you might imagine, my primary specialty as a REALTOR® is boomers and seniors – helping them with their own real estate needs or as they help their elderly parents. With plenty of years of personal and practical experience, excellent connections I've made over the past five + years of blogging about the topic, and a grand resources associated with my Keller Williams Realty office, I can help real estate clients locally and long distance – helping you find a local agent who is also extremely experienced in this field. 

Some of the articles that you might enjoy include:

My first blog, SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation, focuses on Christian encouragement, fun games and easy crafts for kids and grandkids, and medical tips and practical deas to help the elderly parents and relatives we love and care for.

Together, they provide you with a wealth of information and resources for those moments, many times unexpected, when your life turns upside down due to a beloved senior heading for the hospital, or that phone call from an elderly parent where they explain it's time to downsize and they need help. 

It's a serious subject, but I strive to keep both sites on the upbeat and postive side, as we navigate together through this challenging but rewarding season of life. So you'll find plenty of fun and funny goodies, blog party delights, and more.

And speaking of blog parties, this is the BIG ONE for the year, isn't it? Would you believe it, I've been in FIVE of them with SandwichINK and I think this is the second time for SandwichINK Real Estate Info. They're always fun and a great way to meet other bloggers with similar interests. I try to spotlight fellow grandparents, boomers, and seniors who join in the fun so be sure to leave a comment no matter what BUT maybe capitalize it if that includes you. 

And since a party should always include some fun treats, here are some cute spring, Easter and Mother's Day tags that make for easy crafts for all ages – from our kids and grandkids to ourselves and all the way up to our beloved seniors + two coloring page tags. Enjoy!

Spending the day working on an open house this past week, I was delighted to spot a grand bathroom with some very useful aging in place options including two seats in the master shower along with a plastic bar (I'm not sure if it was an actual grab bar. Always ask your builder/owner if you are buying a house and want grab bars if they know if they are actually installed safely as grab bars.). It was on the second story, though. I would have been thrilled to see a shower in the bathroom on the first floor as well. That and the bedroom right next to it would have made an excellent "mother-in-law suite." 

I did take some photos of it which I shared in an article I wrote at my ActiveRain real estate site. Later that day, I was thinking about creative ways to share a Bible verse, "The LORD sustains all who fall and raises up all who are bowed down." with my grandkids and y'all. I thought of this photo and decided they would make a good combination. Then I decided to have some fun with yet another of my grand iPhone moible apps. I hadn't yet tested Path On and thought this would be a fun opportunity.

What do you think? A cute way to make a good point combining this Scripture and the shower with built in seats? And Path On passed my test. I think it will be a great app for grandkid pix AND real estate needs. Have a blessed and beautiful day, in AND out of the Sandwich Generation! 🙂 

P.S. I'm linking up to Pink Saturday and Spiritual Sunday this week as well as my ActiveRain site. 🙂
