Aging with Dignity

Aging, like death and taxes are things we cannot avoid. Father time waits for no one. As we, our parents and love ones age, we all face a series of new challenges. Decreases in energy, memory, eye sight and hearing are common. Eventually we may reach a point where we can no longer drive and we face the problem of isolation. There is nothing sadder than to see our parents and loved ones failing health be compounded by isolation, depression and severe loneliness. Now if that is not bad enough, diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson are often associated with people 60 and older. There is no cure and these diseases are among the most devastating life altering event. Unless some action is taken, these issues will get worse. The population in the United States is getting older. According to a 2018 U.S. Census Bureau report, in 2035 “there will be 78.0 million people 65 years and older compared to 76.4 million under the age of 18.”

Everyone has those AHA moments or events that change our lives for better or worse. These life altering events occur in every aspect of our professional, personal, and in the lives of our family. Try as we may, it is impossible to completely separate the events in our personal life from our professional life. Believe me, I tried and failed miserably. Life altering events present us with opportunities to seize the moment and make difference in our own life, the lives of our loved one, friends and business associates. They also can be a fork in the road where we can fall apart or pick up the pieces and start moving forward toward better times and better people. It is never too late to have the life you want and deserve. Let’s talk about it.
