Aging can be a difficult process -- not just on the elderly but on an elderly person’s family as well. Watching your loved one fade from the vibrant, robust person he once was to a shadow of himself is a difficult thing to do -- especially if he reaches a point where he can no longer take care of himself and needs full-time help. When that happens, a nursing home can be a blessing. Knowing that your loved one is in a place where he will be safe and well cared for, you can relax a bit and stress about one less thing.

While no states have enacted bans on all cellphone usage by drivers, a total of 11 have passed laws banning drivers from using hand-held mobile devices.
