  • Spring Cleaning, Caregiving

    We feel more energized by the longer days and warmer temperatures of spring. UK Eldercare reminds us now may be a good time to consider a spring cleaning with your loved one in their home.

    It may provide valuable insight into how your loved one is managing as they age. It also provides a chance to improve the safety of your loved one’s home; increase the ease of their living condition by reorganizing and replacing worn out items; and evaluate the quality of your loved one’s life and assess if additional help may be needed.

  • Lawmakers eye THC content of state’s industrial hemp

     Around 100 pounds of industrial hemp grown under Kentucky’s three-year old Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program were destroyed last month after the state found the crop had a higher THC level than the law allows.

    An April 13 Associated Press article on the destroyed crop reported that it registered THC levels of between 1.2 and 0.4 percent, or slightly above the federal and state legal limit of 0.3 percent.
