Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 6, 2008

The moving experience can be extremely stressful, especially for the elderly who are leaving their comfortable surroundings. Adult children can find their parents' discomfort upsetting as well, but Nancy Daniel Wesson has tips to make the move go smoothly in her new book "Moving Your Aging Parents: Fulfilling Their Needs and Yours Before, During, and After the Move" (ISBN 9781932690545, Loving Healing Press, 2008).

Adult children frequently have to make difficult decisions about their elderly parents, and moving those parents from their home to an apartment, nursing home or any new and unfamiliar space can be upsetting for both the parent and child. Nancy Wesson's new book, "Moving Your Aging Parents" is a long overdue guide for making this transition easier. Nancy focuses on the need to consider health and safety issues while moving, but also to minister to the elderly parent's emotional and spiritual needs.

Nancy Wesson has helped thousands through the moving process so she has priceless instructions for every aspect of the relocation. Wesson reminds the reader to take into consideration the size of the new space, to involve the elderly parent in the decision of what to keep and what to discard, to consider the placement of furniture and necessities with regards to special needs, and the importance of displaying pictures and treasured articles prominently. Most importantly, she focuses on communication between the parent and adult child so both feel their needs are met during the transition.

This hope-filled book will teach adult children how to help their parents by:

  •  Identifying needs and desires to create a quality life
  •  Coping with the mindset of people who lived through the Great Depression
  •  Creating emotionally sustaining environments to feed the soul
  •  Selling the family home
  •  Asking the RIGHT questions to help divest of treasures
  •  Managing one's energy and spirit throughout the process

Experts on caring for the elderly agree that "Moving Your Aging Parents" is an invaluable resource for anyone with an elderly parent. "A creative and inspiring godsend for helping Mom and Dad transition to the next phase of life," says Jacqueline Marcell, author of "Elder Rage." Lillian Garnier Bridges, President of the Lotus Institute, states, "Readers will find so many useful tips and strategies and will also learn much more about themselves in the process." Chris Holland, Ph. D. and R. N. agrees, "Nancy's approach is both genuine and practical offering a valuable tool for this very important and often neglected phase of life."

Promgirl. net and Clarisse Sponsored Miss Hayley Mac Winner of Miss Galaxy 2009/10

Promgirl. net and Clarisse Sponsored Miss Hayley Mac Winner of Miss Galaxy 2009/10

Hayley Mac won the title of Miss Galaxy UK 2009 and Miss Galaxy International 2009/10. Promgirl. net and Clarisse sponsored both Miss Galaxy UK and Miss Teen Galaxy UK in 2009.

Schenectady, NY (PRWEB) July 31, 2009

Clarisse, the popular line of evening wear and prom dresses (http://www. promgirl. net/), provided the winning gowns for Miss Galaxy-UK and Miss Teen Galaxy-UK 2009/10. These prestigious competitions are the most prominent pageants in the United Kingdom. Young ladies from England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland compete for the title Miss Galaxy-UK and Miss Teen Galaxy-UK. Winners go on to an international competition in Florida. An important and vital part of both competitions are the formal dresses.

For both competitions, Clarisse provided the glamour and elegance with their stunning and breath-taking dresses. The winner of the Miss Galaxy competition, Hayley Mac, and the winner of the Miss Teen Galaxy competition, Emma McInnes, both advanced to the international competition in Florida. There, they both won the international title and also the award for best in evening wear. When each young lady won, she was wearing a Clarisse gown.

Clarisse provides all types of elegant and flirty dresses for young girls through their website Clarisse. us as well as retail stores. From proms, to parties, to formal settings, Clarisse has something for every occasion. Stunning long evening gowns, short prom dresses (http://www. thepromsite. com/), homecoming gowns and more are all part of the collection offered.

In addition to this, Promgirl. net was a prize sponsor of Miss Galaxy 2009/10 awarding the winners with beautiful dresses from their collection. Promgirl. net is one of the leading online retailers of prom dresses, party dresses, and evening gowns. They sell some of the very same dresses that can be seen on celebrities at red carpet events.

Both companies are taking advantage of a fast growing trend of online buying. According to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, online sales have doubled since 2000 and are still growing. Consumer concerns about spending money on gas to travel from location to location and the willingness of some online sellers to drop ship directly adds to the allure for shoppers. The prom dress buying age group is online to begin with, and therefore, it makes sense that many teens will buy prom dresses online.

Promgirl. net carries some of the top brands in evening gowns such as Mori Lee, Clarisse, Jovani, Sherri Hill, and Paris. Their prom dresses (http://www.4prom. com/) are often top picks for pageant participants because of the many choices, styles, colors, fabrics, and looks. Due to the online access, it is easy to look at a variety of dresses and pick the right one.

When the winners of Miss Galaxy-UK and Miss Teen Galaxy-UK went on to the international final in Florida, their Clarisse dresses were provided by Promgirl. net. The best part is that these dresses aren't just available to pageant participants. They are available to any girl who wants to stand out at her prom, a special event, or party.

In a time when online shopping is at an all time high, both Clarisse and Promgirl. net provide young ladies with the choice, customer service, and fast delivery they are looking for. Parents of prom go-ers like the sites for the same reasons. These sites pride themselves on helping girls to have the best prom or other special occasion. From the time girls start to look through the websites for dresses to the time they arrive in the mail, the experience is top notch.

Due to these reasons and more, Promgirl. net was proud to sponsor Miss Galaxy 2009/10 and Miss Teen Galaxy 2009/10. Clarisse was equally as proud to provide the gorgeous winners with best dresses (http://www. best-dresses. net/) that just added to their beauty.
