Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Boomer Voices program and have been provided with a device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.

I just have to tell you I am loving using my Verizon Droid Razr HD for driving directions! As a caregiver with a busy schedule I really appreciate the nice big screen for my aging and tired eyes. It also speaks clearly and gives me plenty of notice for turns. Plus it hasn’t taken me down a wrong path yet. Getting me to my destinations on a timely basis, really helps reduce my stress. SWEET!
In addition, I’m learning to use the “Fitbit” APP. It’s kind of spooky to find out how little I move! Although I am constantly busy, so much of what I do is by phone or using the internet. I am finding I sit way too much and really have to become so inactive compared to what I used to be. I guess I knew this was happening, but when you have a reminder counting off your steps or lack of it kind of slaps you in the face and says, get up a move girl! although I love my work, I have found I have become a slave to my computer… Now it’s time to find some balance. Thank you Fitbit and Verizon! This little gadget can help the caregiver, take care of them self.
Last, I have to tell you a short story about my mom today. I brought her to an activity where a “professional Whistler” performed. I didn’t even know there was such a person! She seemed to enjoy it and yelled out a few comments to the performers questions he was posing to the audience. In addition, she was wiggling and dancing to the music. She even hummed a few bars to two different songs. These types of reactions are pretty rare for mom these days so this was a great treat!
