Many other nurses have stopped in at the clubhouse this past week. Many were very qualified and seemed to have a true desire to improve the lives of seniors. I have invited one of them to join us, but will be still considering a second nurse because we need two part time nurses. I am encouraged that we will have a strong and vibrant nursing staff for our members. I always hire on the basis of “Who do I want looking after MY medical concerns?”. I have to admit, my Wellness Map needs updating. And my doctor is moving to a new practice model that is expensive, so I may be finding another doctor soon. So having a good medical team at Aging With Grace +50 becomes even more important to me. Aging With Grace +50 works closely with each member’s personal physician to provide the very best medical care possible. A good nurse or two focusing on me and the rest of the members at Aging With Grace +50 will improve our health and quality of life, perhaps even more than going to the doctor periodically. Prevention is our priority. My mother always said she would rather pay the grocery bill than the doctor bill and that is our philosophy too.
This past week I discovered the United States Senate Special Committee on Aging, and I watched a video of one of their recent committee hearings. Here is a link to their website in case you are interested: https://www.aging.senate.gov
And you should be interested. No matter what your age. The decisions they make will have a big impact on your income and quality of life. Please contact your senators and tell them what you want Medicare and Social Security to do for you.
Many of us seniors are going to need financial help as we age. Here is a link to help you: https://www.aarp.org/aarp-foundation/our-work/income/info-2012/public-benefits-guide-senior-assistance1.html
