May is Elder Americans Month

At the risk of duplicating many other blogs that provide information to seniors and those who care about them, I hope that we all celebrate Elder Americans Month with our businesses and families. 

 Americans are now living longer, healthier and richer lives than ever before. Many of my friends – the eldest of the baby boomers  – are beginning to turn 65, without feeling the least bit “elderly.”   At the same time, as many more people than ever before live into their 80s, 90s and even 100s, it is important to be aware that at some time, these people may need our help.   We in the “young old” generation are in a perfect position to develp new ways for us to live, and care for one another, over the next 25+ years.
