I say: It is time to define it and high time to start doing it as a community effort.
Seniors will help other seniors and help all of Canada and all Canadians.
Understand what it is now and what it can be.
We’ll get better at this as the days go by,
. . . . . if we get started doing it now and doing it and doing more of it.
How many Saskatchewan seniors currently living independently have a strong desire to continue living independently in their chosen community into the foreseeable future?
Apparently a sure sign of codependency is a history of never completing projects.
“Who can see all the benefits?
Who has heard of this “aging in place”?
Who is up to speed on all of the details or even some detail?
Who are the local experts in this emerging approach to optimizing community life?
Who fully understands the benefits to seniors themselves and the benefits to their respective community and the great benefit to all of Canada and to all Canadians?
Who wants to be a strong leaders in this new field?
Who is willing to help out in some way?
Who can volunteer one day a week?
Who will volunteer full time?
Who can volunteer one hour a week without being stressed, uptight, in a snit, bent out of shape and obsessed about some minor thing because you have too much on your plate?
Did you know that stress can become such a bad habit and a permanent bad habit which can lead to health problems, can negatively affect all of your relationships and to top it off undermine your job performance at work??? “Tough to break?” It depends.
Do you want to know what I learned a few days ago about correcting, controlling and even eliminating this festering national plague?
We can be stressed out and become obscessed about being stressed out, yet not know what to do even though we want to. This adds to our stress.
I’m looking for sufficient funding to do a pilot project together with a handful of seniors who are my age or older.
My long standing hope here is to demonstrate with open books and through a series of living “aging in place” examples how to function totally pain free, how to cure hypertension in natural ways, use all the known ways to eliminate codependency and the proven ways and some new ways to eliminate the common forms of stress.
All this and more, Canada, just by offering a little support and by helping a handful of seniors learn how to age in place.
Which community in Saskatchewan is willing to get this ball rolling?
