A note from Jackie: We’re seeing it in the fields of housing, lifestyle, and, of course, business and entrepreneurship: what it means to grow older in this country is radically changing. I love exploring the intersections between my own work and the work that other people are doing as the world of retirement undergoes one transformation after another. This article by Michele Fiasca provides a glimpse into one of these transformations.
Having been in the senior industry for the past 17 years helping adult children find appropriate care settings for their aging parents, I see big changes in the air. More often than not, the family member I work with is getting their first look at what the options are for retirement living through end of life care and believe me, it is an eye opening experience for them.
