Bringing your elderly parents into your home is a blessing for some; it provides quality time together that you may not otherwise have. But moving your parents in your home also often requires retro-fitting some new features to ensure they remain safe.

If your home is going to be a temporary stage for transitioning between independent living and moving into a residence designed for seniors, it can be difficult to determine how to balance safety over the short term without damaging your home’s value over the long term.  Read more

A motivational health and wellness blog sharing humor, wit, wisdom and support for caregivers who embrace a holistic healing vision.  Insights and health tips for caregivers living with dementia, and people caring for people who embrace a holistic healing vision. Continue Reading

Dr. Denise D’Angelo, (AKA Denise D’Angelo Jones),  is a 24/7 caregiver of a family member with dOur Bodies Ourselvesementia. She started, “Caregivers Get Fit” blog,  to share her journey, and the journey of others who have been touched by dementia. “Caregivers Get Fit,” is about having healthy levels of mental, physical and spiritual balance, (ie: developing a skill set of understanding through education to avoid “burnout,” while gaining a deep awareness of present time consciousness, compassion and love), while caring for a family member with dementia. The journey can be difficult, and Dr. D’Angelo is always searching for ways to make the path less difficult through loving communication between both parties, so that moments of oneness, heartfelt connections, and deep insight can be found.

Tales, Tips, and Love from Women Caregivers by Elayne Clift in Our Bodies Ourselves

Women have always been caregivers. Whether looking after small children, elders, other family members or friends in small communities, tending to others in urban settings with limited support systems, or acting as professional caregivers in institutional settings, we have been the primary providers of physical care and emotional support in a variety of settings and circumstances throughout the ages. Because of these issues, I compiled a collection of prose and poetry by women caregivers that give testimony to what caregiving has meant for contemporary women.  Continue reading

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
