Old? No way! Let's talk.

February 21st, 2011 by Lee Yahnke

I'm getting old.  Fortunately I won't have to live under the old concepts of age and care.  Recently, more articles about innovative personal care and housing are appearing in magazines and newspapers.  In my community a few individuals in professional positions are working to broaden these ideas and change the paradigm currently in place.  Private agencies offer great services to help seniors stay in their own homes.   Another option available in our community is co-housing.  More information and support is available to caregivers, but we need to open our minds to more innovative concepts.

I hope you're curious.
