July is time filled with family events surrounding Independence Day. This patriotic month is a special time to reflect on the true meaning of “independence.”
The elderly wrestle for independence as they recognize the limitations of their bodies. With a lifetime of wisdom and invaluable lessons to help shape a burgeoning community, seniors matter. Independence is a basic human right that is valued by all. For an elderly person, independence means something very precious. A major component of independence is feeling in control. Approximately, 9 out of 10 people over age 65 want to continue living in their own homes.
