Retiring and growing older should be a rewarding experience,
but the reality is, it is often challenging and frustrating.
We have many concerns for our loved ones
- How do I know they’re safe?
- Are they taking their medications correctly?
- Is it time for them to quit driving?
- How will they get around?
- I can’t keep taking time off work- I may lose my job!
- I live too far away to help them
- Who will help them with daily needs?
- How do I know they can be trusted?
