Ohio is among the majority of states to impose some limits on cellphone use behind the wheel. State laws ban texting while driving, but it is still legal to use a handheld cellphone to make calls.

Perhaps you had some scary moments that brought you to the realization that your loved one's Alzheimer's or another form of dementia was beyond your ability to care for. If you researched and found a home that offered a staff skilled and trained to deal with the behaviors in a patient with dementia, you may have felt you made the right choice for the well-being of your parent.
