Why We’re Here
We all know and care about someone that is aging. We are here to be a resource and encouragement as you navigate the world with your aging loved one. These times can often feel overwhelming- we've been there! We will tell the stories, ask the questions, share the information and encourage those listening along the way. In every episode, our goal is to lead with empathy and end in hope. Our hope is to create a sense of community, inspiring a vision of life-long learning and engagement.
