Girl Scout Kelly Arthur, 17, looked to her passion when deciding what volunteer project she’d like to explore for her Gold Award. Arthur is a member of Troop 2801 and she received the award, which is similar to becoming an Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts, in June. “It’s a culmination of all you’ve learned in Girl Scouts and you apply that to a project,” she said. The La Cañada High School senior has raised funds to purchase cleaning supplies and toys for the Glendale Humane Society since ninth grade as an officer of the Animal Aid Club, a campus organization, she said.

Q. My mom is starting to show signs of dementia and is embarrassed about her forgetfulness. How can I make the holidays more enjoyable for all of us? Holidays provoke memories, which can be especially powerful in the later years of life. Older people whose memories are impaired may have difficulty remembering recent events, but they are often able to share stories and observations from the past. These shared memories are important for the young as well — children enjoy hearing about how it was "when your parents were your age…" Use picture albums, family videos and music, even theme songs from old radio or TV programs to help stimulate memories and encourage older seniors to share their stories and experiences.
