elderly memoirs

I am looking for feedback on the possibility of creating an elderly memoir blog. A couple of weeks ago my mother’s minister told a story based his father’s reminiscing about the past. The minister fortunately videotaped the conversation with his father so it was saved but he added “many great stories die with the storyteller.” His remarks got me to thinking that many stories and much wisdom from the elderly will be lost if not recorded in some fashion.

Need V-Day Card Sentiments for the Elderly Please

I recently volunteered for a community project to make homemade Valentine's Day cards for local elderly residents. I'm enjoying making the cards, but I suddenly find my mind blank! I need to come up with some good sayings/sentiments/quotes to put in the cards. These will all be for people I've never met, so that knocks out a lot of the usual sayings. Since a good deal of these people do not have family around, I'd love it if I could say something that will make them smile. I just know you guys will have some great ideas! THANKS!

Our big old dog is becoming incontinent -- How can we all be happy together?

My 11 year old male shepherd-mix is in congestive heart failure, but doing very well on medicine. He has a good outlook for many months of high quality living. The diuretic medicine causes him to pee in the house occasionally -- because I can't get him out the door fast enough. We live in a condo and he has to go out on leash. We can't leave the house for more than a couple hours or he will need to pee. I welcome any tips on managing incontinence for large male dogs. [more inside]

Examples of assistive/monitoring medical devices for the elderly?

Could anyone provide examples of medical devices that assist the elderly / assisted-living patients?

I'm doing an analysis on such devices, but I need to formulate a list of the different types of technologies available first. Keep in mind, this list includes both monitoring devices and assistive devices.
