As long as this pandemic has us in the dark days of winter, we might as well make the best of it. Music, anyone?
Almost lost amid the chaos and carnage depicted when an angry mob descended on the U.S. Capitol last week was a development that may affect long-term care more directly.

The last month of 2020 is proving to be more exciting than we might have anticipated.
The imminent arrival of several anti-COVID vaccines may be the best news we get this year. But that hardly means new challenges are off the grid.
