Growing old is not for sissies!

Thinking about 9/11 this past week, I was reminded that there are a lot of fears out there in our big bad world. I recently had a home that I’m having remodeled broken into so someone could cut and pull the copper pipes and wiring. Thank goodness I wasn’t there when it happened but there is a great sense of invasion. We really regard our personal space as holy.

I also travel a lot and when I’ve got a short turn around in an airport and I’m running from one gate to another, I always wonder how seniors are supposed to pull this off! As Bette Davis once said, “Growing old is not for sissies!” It is fraught with fears and troubles just in the living out of each day, never mind the horrors of terrorism. Like living alone and falling and you can’t get up to call for help…it happens!

That’s why I love my job as owner of a Home Instead Senior Care franchise. I know we make a difference in the lives of lots of seniors AND their families. If you know of someone who needs just a little extra help or even 24 hour care to remain safely in their home, call your local Home Instead Senior Care office.
