Overcoming the Obstacles: Staying Strong During Illness and Disease


Note: promotional consideration for this segment provided by Senior Helpers.

We talk a lot about the nearly limitless opportunities that are now available as we age — which is why we work hard to provide the hope and inspiration required and believe that the rest of our lives can truly be the best of our lives.

We also know that life can knock of us down from time to time… but it’s how we overcome those inevitable obstacles that determines how successful we are at Growing Bolder. And as so many face debilitating diseases like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, they and their families have to make some difficult decisions.

Diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s don’t just affect one person — they affect loved ones who ultimately find themselves as caregivers – a rewarding but difficult and stressful role that can become overwhelming. And, of course, you don’t need a disease to require help. All of us need varying degrees of assistance as we age.  So, where can we turn? The team at Senior Helpers provides professionally trained companions who can make a real difference in the lives of seniors and their families.
