About

Overview

Dealing with aging can be bewildering and frustrating for ourselves or on behalf of others. The elderly are often challenged by health complications, difficulties in obtaining quality medical care, financial and legal hurdles, and psychological or social issues. Becoming elderly is an unavoidable, universal stage of life, but no one is ever well prepared for it.
