It’s not so easy to do this aging thing on our own. Being among peers, those who’ve experienced life the way we have, allows us to keep ourselves and our challenges in proper perspective. It’s not only about past experiences, like raising kids and balancing out careers and in-laws, but finding support and camaraderie around issues of the present day and what’s to come.
At GAF, we frame successful, positive aging as a time steeped in fellowship with a mindset of gratitude for what we have and what we have to give to each other, not of what we’re losing. Being positive, connected and engaged in the moment lets us realize how much we gain from the riches of our relationships and the depth of our experiences.
Connection and positive attitude take us a long way on our journey to stay healthy and independent.
