We're doing aging wrong. Our healthcare system delivers quick interventions that act as band-aids and fail to include the entire family. Our medical model focuses on the body and neglects the mind and soul, which are essential to our healing and comfort. Older adults are often scared and alone when they need more attention, support and love.
If you're a caregiver, you'll find the advice and resources you're looking for on how to support an aging relative. Perhaps you're worried about preparing for growing older yourself. Plan for Aging Well helps you create a viable plan to guarantee you have the financial, legal, family and healthcare support you and your loved ones need as you age.
