Rita’s Italian Ice is all the rage on social media! Have you had a chance to try it? They have so many different flavors and textures. I recently took my children to try Rita’s Italian Ice. My son ordered a Blendini with cookies and cream (ice custard blended with mix-ins) and my daughter ordered a mango flavored Gelati (a layering of Italian ice and frozen custard). Both were delicious! Some of the other products they carry include Italian Ice, Cream Ice, Misto, Sundaes, Milkshakes, and Custard Cakes. They have Sugar Free Ice and Light Vanilla Custard for those who would like lighter options. Although they offer a wide variety of flavors, they do not offer them all at the same time. The milkshake flavor of the month for May is vanilla custard swirled with creamy peanut butter. If you have a favorite flavor you can sign up to receive alerts on your phone to let you know when it is being offered in the store. You can also receive free treats by joining the birthday club or downloading Rita’s Ice Mobile App, a virtual loyalty reward card. So, try Rita’s Italian Ice located at 26733 Bouquet Canyon Road, but before you take the time to tweet about your delectable treat, or post your tempting Instagram pic, don’t forget to have your virtual reward card punched!

I am sure many of you had the opportunity to spend Sunday with your mother; I hope you had a wonderful day together. This year my daughter did not have to work, so it was extra special to spend the day with both of my children – especially since the weather was so nice.

Many of our mothers and fathers are reaching an age where, as their adult children, we have to make decisions regarding their care. Last week I had the pleasure of visiting our local branch of Home Instead Senior Care. In speaking with the owner, Joel Green, I learned a lot about in home care for the elderly. I didn’t realize there were differences in the type of care options and the lack of regulations for certain caregivers. Not all care givers are required to go through an extensive background check and be insured; so it is wise to go with a trusted name in elder care. Home Instead CAREGiverSM are all area residents who are kind, compassionate and truly enjoy working with seniors. They are professionals who have been extensively trained in elder care. In addition, everyone must be screened, insured and bonded. There are medical in home care options for elderly who need medical assistance, but that is not what Home Instead Senior Care is all about. Home Instead was created to help seniors remain safely in the comfort of their own home by providing support to their family. By providing short-term services for a few hours per day; a few days per week or continual round the clock care – they have a caregiver for just about every situation or need. Caregivers assist with everything from companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, shopping and errands to continual care and Alzheimer’s care. Joel and the staff are happy to answer any questions you may have and help you through this process. There office is located at: 28542 Constellation Road, Suite A in Santa Clarita or you may contact them by phone at: (661) 254-8701.
