Aging is universal. Whoever you are, it is inevitable that you, your family and friends will be touched by the passage of time. The journey of aging is what inspires us to make every second a memory, as my mother used to say. That reality is also what connects us all. We are all in the same flow. Our communal awareness of this passage inspires us to reach out mindfully to one another.
Threads of kindness and information can be woven into a net of support as we navigate growing older. As America’s over-60 population expands at a faster pace than any other age group, the issues related to that exceptional growth inform the well-being and happiness of seniors and those who assist them.
While aging is inevitable, every transition through the decades is unique. What we realized is that caregiving is a stage of life — and that everyone needs the sort of useful and thoughtful information compiled here. Because it’s true: We are all walking each other home.
