Scary Times – (Posted late on 12/16 from 12/15)

There is no worse time than during the busiest holiday of the season for a senior citizen to fall ill. Fate would have it though that many more seniors do indeed feel the effects of the Christmas season – now more than ever.

Do you know that by the year 2030, one-in-six individuals in the United States will be 65 or more years old? What exactly do you think that Christmastime will feel like then if it is already in a state of flux as I type this little diddy?

I fear for the seniors then, and, technically I will qualify for that previous statistic. I know that if I don’t do something now to help those approaching the age of reason, that I will forever feel as if I have failed those individuals my age and older because if I don’t do something, there are very few others that would even consider it!

Scary times could be had by all as caregivers have begun to notice just now around the holidays. The feeling of depression and anxiety will only increase in the vast majority of those that are already in the ‘golden age.’

That is why it is of the utmost importance to show those I care for and those I could potentially care for, ill or not, that With Age Comes Respect. It is, for all intents and purposes, why I do what I do!
