Ready or not, Baby Boomers, here IT comes! The ‘IT’ is the AGING we are experiencing …
Inspiration behind Aging With Grace:
Owner and founder, DG Gridley tells her story, “I realized that I needed to get ready for the AGING process when the responsibility of caring for my sick in-laws was thrust upon me, and then the sickness and death of my mother happened in the same year!
“That year felt as if I had been parachuted into the middle of a jungle, and I had to find my way out, alone, fighting my way through the thick jungle growth (the confusing world of health care) to find civilization. I never did find civilization. That is why I quit my job as a middle school teacher and summer programs director in order to focus all my time and energy on my quest for a civilized way to care for the aging and sick in our society.
“After two and a half years of studying at the University of Kentucky where I earned a Masters Degree in Healthcare Administration; three years of working, networking and volunteering locally with people who work in senior services and government agencies that serve the aging in our area, it was time to open Aging With Grace, Aging in Place, The Health Club for Seniors.”
Welcome to civilization! Welcome to The Club!
