The Best Times takes a look at the realities of dealing with recovery after a debilitating disease or a catastrophic injury. Would you know how do you select the right rehab facility or nursing home? These are just a few of the questions that make up "The Nursing Home Puzzle". We also look at "The Green House Project," the nursing home revolution that is planning a major make-over for current nursing home facilities. And we'll examine what "Dying with Debt" really means and how to plan for it.

The Best Times examines practical ways that will keep you "Working For A Living." Looking for a job is never easy but looking for work when you're over fifty can be a challenging. A recent retirement finances survey found that thirty percent of respondents age 55 and over have no retirement savings and are relying on working as long as they can. It's important to know how to project how you would fit in the workplace.
