As many families deal with disabilities with themselves or family members from adults to children can be very overwhelming and they do not know where to turn for help. My mother’s husband has been dealing with so much since he was diagnosed with Parkinson Disease 10 years ago.
 


Coping with the different stages of this disease has been difficult for my mom. It has been a long road and within the last year he has been confined to a wheel chair. He received a wheel chair from a friend and he was able to use it at the beginning but it was very difficult. They have all rugs throughout the house and with Parkinson disease your hands shake and it has been so difficult for him to move around himself by pushing the wheels.  He now has no freedom to be able to get around the house. My mom has to push and take him everywhere and it also is taking a toll on her. He now has a motorized scooter (wheelchair) to be able to get around. He is a Veteran and dealing with NMEDA has helped with the costs. Scooters are very expensive if you need to go out and purchase one. 
The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association NMEDA works to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities. NMEDA and their members provide the best and most beneficial solutions for increased mobility. Simply put, they are the best source for wheelchair accessible vehicles and mobility equipment.
NMEDA is a solution that helps all people who struggle with mobility issues and helps the person help decide what would be best for them.

Benefits of working with a NMEDA (QAP) quality assurance program dealer include: in-person evaluations, specialized training of equipment, 24-hour local emergency roadside services and so much more! Imagine the comfort of knowing that your mobility challenged loved one had this type of support and reliable safety. The network of QAP dealers will help get you or a loved one on the road to independence.
Many of the Associations NMEDA deals with are:

·         VA – Veterans Administration
·         DAV – Disabled American Veteran
·         PVA – Paralyzed Veterans Association
·         Wounded Warriors
·         ALS Association – Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
·         MS – National Multiple Sclerosis Society
·         Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation
·         United Spinal Association
·         RESNA – Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America
·         AOTA – American Occupational Therapy Association
·         ADED – Association for Driver Rehabilitation Specialists
·         APTA – American Physical Therapy Association
·         American Stroke Association
·         National Stroke Association
·         Senior Living Council
·         MDA – Muscular Dystrophy Association
·         AARP
·         Arthritis Foundation
·         National Council on Aging
·         United Cerebral Palsy

You do not need to be a member of any of the above, this is who NMEDA has worked with and still continue to do so.
All NMEDA equipment dealers must be certified in a unique training program so they assure the great quality, safety and experience to give to all in need of mobility.

If you or a family member has special need’s I highly recommend you visit their website nmeda.com or call to find out additional information. They have locations throughout the United States and Canada.

Candles light, Punasi LED Flameless Flickering Battery-Powered Tea Light Candles with Remote 

These candles are fabulous. Their design alone is superb. They look like a candle that is actually burning from the shape. I am making candle centerpieces for my daughters party coming up in October. They come in a package of 24. You can use the candles alone on a table, decorate and add them to any room in your home.



This is the first time I have seen candles with a remote. It is so much easier then switching off each candle that you have on. The remote will shut off any candles within distance. I turned on 6 candles with the switch and used the remote and hit off and they all shut off. So easy.



Great for any occasion, So much safer than real candles. I was always so afraid to lite a real candle in case something would happen. Now you can use these and not have to worry about starting a fire. I used a glass holder and flat marbles to decorate my candle. It looks really pretty.

Pictek HDTV Indoor Antenna, 50Miles Digital TV Antenna with Amplifier Signal Booster, Upgraded Version with New Tech for Better Reception, Black


I have to say I was extremely surprised at the Pictek Antenna. I have 4 boxes in my home and it is really expensive. I wanted to put a television in my bedroom. I tried this antenna in my daughters room on her tv. It was very easy to set up and the directions were perfect. I placed the square pad on her window and tuned in. I don'[t mind it on my window because it is the back of the house.

We went through many channels some didn't come in well but the amount of channels I was receiving was super. It is perfect for my room and my needs. I didn't quite understand the website and how to find out which stations I would or might be able to receive. It has a long 10 foot cable that can reach to my window and where my tv will go. I am not technical and still have to learn more how to delete certain channels and receive the best channels on placement. I have tried regular antennas in the past and had hardly any reception at all.

Stay Dry 13.6-Inch Laptop Case Bag


My daughter has a laptop and had no case or cover for it. Inside has a nice roomy compartment. Where your laptop goes is super soft plush to keep it safe. On each side outside where they laptop goes are two compartments to put a mouse, cord, cleaning cloth, stylus, etc. It also has a zippered compartment in the front to add even more accessories. Everything fits great.


My photos show a darker case. The correct color is the photo above.


    


Her laptop fit perfect and she put all my accessories neatly on the outside of of the case. Outside is soft and blue. It is a professional looking case that is perfect for anyone who is looking for a laptop bag. A nice handle to carry around your laptop. A great case I highly recommend.

Set of 4 Smart Control Sensor LED Night Light


I love these night lights. They are so unique and so bright. I like the four colors and how some have different light colors. The heart shape are cute because they are different than my ordinary lights.

I placed one in my hallway, two in my kitchen and one in a bedroom. You can see just right in my rooms and hallway. 


My rooms are pretty large so they make a great light. Not super bright but if you walk around in the dark you are able to see. I keep them plugged in and during the daylight the light goes off. I love that feature that I do not have to switch them on and off.

Package Contents:
1*white Night Light
1*orange Night Light
1*red Night Light
1*blue Night Light


These are energy saving bulbs which makes these lights even better. These would be great in any baby's room or children's room or any room in your home.

There is nothing more personal and special than a Greeting Card that expresses your own words. Professionally personalized with their name which tells exactly what you would like to say..... 

I have always wanted to try an on-line 
Card Service to send birthday, anniversary, special occasion cards to my family and friends. I had an opportunity to try GreetingCard Universe.

I signed up, instructions were easy. You can input all your birthday reminders and receive an alert to order a birthday card for (mom). Sometimes I can be very forgetful remembering so many birthdays. To have a reminder a week before one of my family members birthdays would be great. Here is the page where you would input all your family and friends birthdays. 

I love the idea you can input your Facebook family and friends. You have many options and preferences how you would like your account set up.





They have such a wide variety of cards to choose from. 
Over 500,000 cards available and 10,000 categories.
They have every occasion you can think of. Easy to browse or type the card you are looking for. Cards are offered in Matte or Glossy.

You have a lot of options as far as how you card is mailed. First Class, Priority, 2 day or overnight. Extra charges will apply.

 You can also go to any Target and pick you card up !! Great option if you would like to have a professional personalized card ready for you to pick up. You can then mail it yourself or give that special card to the person it was intended for.





One of my favorite cards is a photo card. Easily pick out your card and add a photo from your device and Greeting Card Universe will add your beautiful photo. 
   

Another super feature. E-Cards are always free. Pick out a special card, you can even add a photo. Write a little note, insert their email address and send !!

My daughter just graduated college and I designed a beautiful card for her.
It was fun, fast and easy. You let them know when you want them to send it and it will be on its way.

 


They will specialize a card for you if you do not see your occasion listed. 
 For sure you cannot get that in any card store. 


I am still learning all the great ideas Greeting Card Universe has. The offer invitations, Announcements, Holiday Cards. 


My readers will receive a 20% discount on your first purchase. Use the code: VIEWSANDMORE20

Once you try Greeting Card Universe you will not go back to a card store !!!

Visit and Follow Greeting Card Universe on Facebook 

They give you up to date occasions that most of us do not know about.

When you see a police officer driving along side of you how does it make you feel ? Do you feel uncomfortable? Intimidated? Safe? Feel like you did something wrong?


Everyone has their own feelings about police officers. I know if I am driving I get a little nervous when a police officer is driving behind me or alongside me. I spoke to many friends and family on this subject and 80% said they were nervous when an officer was along side them or in back of them while they were driving.

It seems many people are intimidated amongst officers when it shouldn't be that way. Who is the first person you call if you had a problem at home or in a situation where you felt you were going to be harmed. You would call the police and you would want them there as soon as possible.


Police Officers are here to protect us. If we see an officer late at night or if we were walking to our car in a parking lot we of course would feel safe. Why is there such a contradiction?

The true fact is police officers are here to “protect” us. They put their life on the line to help our community in all situations.


We receive those dreaded tickets, or in some cases a speeding ticket. We get mad but honestly whose fault is it > our own. 

My son is a NYPD Officer. I have learned so much about officers in such a short amount of time. He goes out everyday to protect us, stop crime, arrest those that have done wrong. I can go on and on. We all know this but when you are a "mother" of an officer it is very difficult. If he makes an arrest he is at the precinct many hours after his shift filling out paperwork. 

As I see how hard of a job it is to be a police officer, they deserve respect. Their job is very difficult and they put their life on the line for us. Yes there is also "bad seeds" but isn't that with every profession ? Think about it. They are there to protect us and our families.
