|NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS|
It’s refreshing to start a New Year.
We usually make positive commitments to change our diets and exercise routines. In some cases, these new commitments are long lasting and create real change for the better. That’s always so nice to see.
I know that many of you come from totally different circumstances in life, and your life experiences are all unique and special. And there is one thing that ALL of us have right now, in this moment, and that thing is called CHOICE. We can choose how we want to continue our experience of living.
A common situation I see on my tours in the community is an older person who needs help with certain house chores, or is unable to meet his or her basic daily needs such as food, hygiene, appointments with the doctor, transportation, and proper medication management schedules. Either they feel unable or unwilling to ask for help because they don’t want to be a burden to anyone. As a result, the older person lives in a way that is not true to who they really are, which has an impact not only on themselves but on others.
There are many support services in place throughout this great state. As you know, more and more seniors are choosing to stay in their own homes as they age because it really is the best place for them to be, unless of course their medical condition warrants otherwise.
So, maybe one of the best New Year’s Resolutions you can make today is to reach out to someone you know and trust if you need extra help, and get some support services in place for your future. We can all experience the best quality of life as we age when we CHOOSE to!!!!!!!!.
