I was asking a recent patient of mine who had suffered a fall and fractured his hip about the set up of his home. He said, “If I get to the point where I need help….”. I had to break the news that he was at the point where he needed help. This is never easy to hear. But here are the facts. Americans are turning 65 at the rate of 8000 per day. And it doesn’t matter how rich, fit or smart you are, aging can not be prevented. We prepare for so many things in life, a vacation, the arrival of a child, a move or a new job. Yet we do not prepare for aging. Dealing with aging early gives you more options, greater control of your choices and a better likelihood of achieving positive results.
