This : This appears to be primarily a legal matter and i suggest to contact an attorney who is knowledgeable in this area. Since the issue of capacity of that individual has been raised, it may be helpful to obtain an opinion of a geriatric psychiatrist as to the nature of that individual's disability. Oftentimes a stroke could significantly affect the person's speech and hence the ability to communicate while leaving the ability to think, reason and make informed decisions intact. Distinguishing between these possibilities could be important in planning future care for this individual. ...Read more

You are fortunate it is 2012 and that we have outstanding treatments available (i would expect even better treatments to emerge during your lifetime as well). As you know, macular degeneration can impact the central vision. This is what we use for reading - this is the type of vision that one also needs for driving (one needs 20/40 in one eye to drive with an unrestricted license. One usually needs 20/70 in one eye for daytime privileges). While macular degeneration can move vision to less than 20/70 in some patients, i virtually see no patients with it who cannot care for themselves and live independently. Remain optimistic and see your eye doctor if you note vision changes. ...Read more

Is beta carotene an effective anti aging skin care ingredient since it also converts to vitamin a? Is it safe for nursing moms?

Not in pill form: Beta-carotene can be found in carrots, sweet potatoes, etc. It is wise to include such vegetables in your diet. However, don't take beta-carotene in pill form as a major study showed it could be harmful. As a cream, it is helpful for the skin in certain forms.
