Those in area facilities have missed loved ones but they have also experienced a new level of the bonds that are built with staff and caregivers. Enjoy the Valentine’s Day messages from residents at many area facilities starting on page 12. Others have had to forge through the challenges of COVID without any, or very little, interaction with others, enhancing complications of isolation and loneliness. This issue seeks to identify symptoms and offer solutions for action. One such solution for companionship is a pet. While not for everyone, a pet can have a valuable impact whether living alone or hav- ing one visit. Also, be sure to check out the next installment of “Uncomplicating” Medicare starting on page 20.
 One thing we can all do as our world seeks to heal is to create a reason to laugh. Research suggests that laughter can decrease stress hormones and so much more. Laugh more; it helps that heart of yours! 2021 – The New Better.
