“We’re doing aging wrong. Our healthcare system delivers quick interventions that act as band-aids and fail to include the entire family. Our medical model focuses on the body and neglects the mind and soul, which are essential to our healing and comfort. Older adults are often scared and alone when they need more attention, support and love.”Stephanie Erickson, Author, Plan For Aging Well
