Growing older brings continual changes such as health concerns, safety at home, aging in place, moving, adjusting, loss and grief. Voices From My Heart is a series of essays about tender moments with seniors validating what they are going through and offering suggestions and solutions for concerns that they face. Emotion accompanies every decision and event that happens in our lives. I have shared my words with many of my patients, watched them relax and then begin to heal emotionally if not physically. Continuing to find joy, growing where you are planted, reaching out to others, smiling through the losses, finding new purposes, and living with purpose to the end are all talked about in this book. Because I cannot look every senior in the eye, and sit by the side of each one and hold their hand, it is my hope that this book will touch the lives of many more than I will ever see face to face.
In Voices From My Heart you will:
Hear stories that could easily be you
Learn that others face your same challenges and that you have friends who care
Cry with joy
Laugh with amusement
Decide to make the most of your life and help others do the same
