Jul 2 Care Mission
Both Canada and the U.S. celebrate their independence the first week of July. Many of us take our individual independence for granted, but some seniors may feel they are slowly losing theirs. This week, help a senior remain independent longer.
The Facts: According to AARP, 87 percent of adults age 65+ want to stay in their current home and community as they grow older. But as seniors age, they may face barriers to independent living. These can include access to transportation, home upkeep, or mobility. Just a little effort can go a long way. Here are a few ways you can help a senior remain independent longer:
- Offer to take a senior to run an errand
- Bring a meal
- Help with yardwork or home repairs
