Making Senior Living Decisions: Your Dreams Are Still Alive
Some seniors still see themselves as young, still in the game of life, wearing their capes and holding their heads high. But some have lost their hope, taken off their capes, and feel that life has nothing more to offer them, nor do they feel they have anything to offer. Catherine Owens offers help for all of these people.
Be Your Own Hero is about facing the fears, struggles, and social stigmas that aging and health concerns can create for seniors and their families as they begin to look at senior living options. Deciding whether or not to move into a senior living community is said to be one of the hardest decisions a person will ever make.
Make those decisions less stressful by:
-understanding all the factors involved
-knowing when are the best times to start thinking about those decisions, and
-seeing past common misperceptions
Catherine also explains the many living options available, what services are provided, and how to ask the important questions, the ones that will help you make the right decision for you.
The decisions we make from our heart, using good guidance and information, are often the best ones. Many times, we wait until there is a crisis before we really address the root cause. This approach can be devastating if we wait too long to choose a positive living environment. The answer is to seek the best quality of life in our aging years. This book will show you how to:
-Make proactive, educated decisions versus reactive, crisis-driven decisions
-Identify the key influencers and their roles in the decision process
-Define independence and what it means to you
-Live life to the fullest, rather than just survive day to day
You can still be your own hero!
