You just received a call in the middle of the night. Your mother has fallen and was taken to the ER. Her life – and yours — may change forever. But maybe it doesn’t have to; maybe with a little extra help, she can stay in her own home. Maybe you’ve already made that happen.
Please share your success story about “aging in place” for our April edition. How did you find reliable, compassionate, trustworthy help? Was cost an issue? Did you make safety modifications to the home? How did you smooth out wrinkles with opinioned family members who may have disagreed with you?
Or, perhaps you’re the one who is “aging in place” with tips to share. Tell us about it!
Please email your story (in 200 words or less) along with a photo of you and your loved one to Editor@lifestylesafter50.com
Deadline is March 10th; please include your name, address and phone number. If your story runs, we’ll send you a couple of FREE tickets to one of our many venues such as Festivals, Concerts, Dinner Theatre, The Arts, Sports and more.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines aging in place as “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.”
