SUNNYSIDE MEADOWS MEMORY CARE - Marie NicholsonAccording to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 15 million caregivers in 2015 provided an estimated 18.1 billion hours of unpaid care to someone with Alzheimer’s. Caregivers sacrifice more than just their time, however. It’s no wonder that 40% of caregivers suffer from some form of depression or die before the person for whom they care.

Family caregivers caring for someone with Alzheimer’s often give up their annual income to meet the demands of caregiving. In a care community, they would be replaced by a staff of caregivers, med aids, nurses, cooks and activity personnel 24 hours a day. However, the staff will go home to sleep at night and return refreshed.

Alzheimer’s can last 4 years to 20 years. Unless a family considers a memory care community like Sunnyside Meadows at some point, they will face burnout and less quality time with the rest of the family.

Memory care neighborhoods like Sunnyside Meadows afford families and those with dementia both to live life fully with less mental stress and more quality time.

The “all-yes” environment at Sunnyside Meadows Memory Care Neighborhood centers the focus on the residents. Planned activities constantly encourage brain health, an open layout allows freedom of movement, and attentive and caring staff go above and beyond to ease life’s confusion.

Models are now open for touring and seeing the “Yes”! Call Marie Nicholson at 503-798-1341 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to schedule your tour.

BUDGET BLINDS - Craig and JodieWith all the styles, colors, and options available, selecting the right window treatments can seem overwhelming. That’s why we have four tips to help you choose the perfect window coverings for your new place.

Don’t start with the cost: With custom window coverings, there is always a range of pricing that is influenced by add-on features, luxury finishes, and fabric styles. Chances are that no style of window covering is unattainable, even on a budget.

Determine what your windows need to do: Is you major concern blocking sunlight or preserving a captivating view? Is energy efficiency an important issue for you? Do you need a child-safe, cordless covering? Answering questions such as these can help point you in the direction of the right window covering type.

Define your decorating styles: Are your furnishings traditional, contemporary, or a combination of styles? Are your rooms neutral and calming or colorful and energizing? Do you prefer vibrant prints and geometrics or solid colors in intriguing textures? Define your style, and you’ll begin to see it shine through in your new home.

Give us a call!: With Budget Blinds you get a free, in-home consultation with a Style Consultant who can help translate your needs, style preferences, and budget into beautiful window coverings. You can see how samples of treatments, colors, fabrics, and finishes coordinate with your wall colors and furniture, taking the guesswork out of dressing your windows. Call us at 503-590-4333 to set up your in-home consultation.

SUNNYSIDE MEADOWS MEMORY CARE - Marie NicholsonFor those suffering from dementia, home can come with a lot of “no” answers, all with good reasons from the family’s point of view. “No, honey, you can’t go out there alone.” “No, that’s not safe.” ”No, you can’t use that/do that/ go there!” People with memory issues may feel limited in their own home.

“They may feel like people are always whispering about them behind their back,” says Community Outreach Director Marie Nicholson. This can be frustrating from the senior’s point of view and certainly add to the paranoia and restlessness, since emotions are still intact.

Sunnyside Meadows Memory Care is being created to give all “yes” answers through the building design and staff training. Sunnyside Meadows provides a safe, non-restricted environment. The four neighborhoods have been thoughtfully designed for dementia and encourage residents to keep their minds and bodies active.

Every area presents a “Yes, go there, play there, wander there, and enjoy!” Stations are set up with interactive, hands-on life experience reminders, such as baseball cards, pipe fitting pieces, hats and necklaces, puzzles, games, an office or an art project.

Residents feel capable and purposeful when they participate and succeed in activities. Each aspect of the day has been centered on their well-being from the smell of freshly baked bread, to freedom to walk the many patios.

BUDGET BLINDS - Craig and JodieWhen it comes to your home’s safety, you can never be too careful. We’ve already discussed some of the stylish and creative cordless window fashions for your home that are ideal when living with children and pets. Whether it’s the classic look of shutters, the versatility of shades, or any other cordless window covering, there are a number of great window treatments available that make your home a safer place.

If you’re still living with cords, there are a number of steps you can take to ensure a safe environment for you and your loved ones:

  • Move cribs, beds, or other furniture that children can climb on away from windows.
  • Keep all cords as short as possible and out of a child’s reach.
  • Be sure continuous-loop cords are firmly secured to the wall or floor to prevent a child or pet from becoming entangled.
  • Spring-assisted clutches can be installed to raise and lower window coverings, replacing cords.
  • Break-away tassels are designed to break apart under minimal stress to prevent entanglement.
  • Cord stops restrict how far internal ladder cords can be pulled from a blind or shade, eliminating the possibility of a loop big enough to fit over a child’s head.
  • Cord cleats safely secure cords up and away from a child’s reach.
  • Let Budget Blinds translate your safety concerns and style preferences into beautiful custom window coverings for your home. For a free, in-home consultation, call us at 503-590-4333 today!

    BUDGET BLINDS - Craig and JodieStatistics show that an average of one serious injury or fatality occurs each month from blind cord strangulation, both of which are highly avoidable. Cordless window treatments can help make your home a safer place for family and pets. These coverings offer both stylish fashions as well as elimination of cords, allowing you to design as creatively as you would like to.

    Wood, faux wood, composite, and honeycomb blinds are just a few of the options that can be made cordless, either through motorization or through wand-controlled operation of louvers, both of which eliminate dangerous, dangling cords.

    Shades are the most versatile window treatment, offering a wide variety of styles, color options, fabrics and material choices. Best of all, shades can be cordless or motorized making them ideal window coverings for those with children and/or pets in their homes and/or businesses.

    Another option to consider are shutters. Shutters are an incredible window treatment offering clean, crisp lines that complement all décor styles. Shutters are great for arched, rounded, and other unique window shapes that can be a challenge to address. All shutters are custom made from both premium wood and composite materials and they are always cordless.

    If you are ready to make your home safer for those you love, call us at 503-590-4333 for a free, in-home consultation. We can translate your safety concerns and style preferences into beautiful custom window coverings for your home.

    BERNARD'S GARAGE - John Sciarra Before you hit the open road this summer, run through the Bernard’s Garage Road Trip Checklist to lower your chances of getting sidelined by vehicle troubles.

    Check your tires: Are your tires at the correct pressure? How much tread do your tires have left? How even is the tire wear? Tires are the most common component of vehicles to fail, so make sure yours are in good condition

    Make a road trip playlist: There’s nothing worse than the static of a radio with no service, so burn a CD or create an mp3 playlist with your favorite jams to keep the good times rolling.

    Check your different engine fluids: If your transmission fluid isn’t pinkish and almost clear, have it drained and changed out. Check to make sure you have the proper amount of coolant in your cooling system. And change out the oil and air filter in your engine. The improved fuel economy alone is reason enough.

    Bring some good snacks: There’s nothing worse than a car full of hungry people yelling at each other. Grab a couple of bottles of water per person, and have foods like trail mix, granola bars, bananas, and jerky handy for when hunger strikes

    Stop by Bernard’s Garage: At Bernard’s Garage, vehicle safety is our number one concern. Our knowledgeable and experienced technicians can help ensure your vehicle is running smoothly before your trip. Give us a call, check out the website, or stop by today!
