Independent Seniors

I recently started to search for older seniors 75+ who would like to tell me about how they "age in place." Wow! I got an earful.

First, they don't like terms like "aging with grace" or "aging in place". These are fiercely independent people. They are determined to stay in their homes as they grow older. They are determined to stay active, despite the aches and pains and other problems. I'm touched and excited by the stories.

Next week, I'm going to talk to a woman who had a tree crash through her roof. She is not moving out. She is getting the house fixed!

More to come...
