We are coming up on the 4th of July holiday. This is an important day in our history as it marks our Independence. We will all be celebrating. Many reflections of our future will be discussed in hundreds of conversations over BBQ and fireworks.
Imagine losing that independence. Having to live a different life that you imagined for years. Giving up things that you have taken for granted. How would that make you feel? Independence as an aging society is rarely part of any conversation.
Take time to reflect on our future in a different light. Take time to assist those who have already lost their independence, and take the time to get involved in programs that enhance independence for the aging. Take the time for your own future independence .
