Success in Aging® Shop
In my Success in Aging® shop, I will be offering products designed to fight isolation and make the lives of Seniors, and older Disabled, Widowed, and Veterans better. As a Gerontologist, I identify products, services and companies that Boomers and their Aging parents would want to know about! I study research, note health and social trends, and investigate a wide variety of resources with the eyes of a well-trained Gerontologist so that I can determine their value to the Aging public.
HOPE: Helping Older People Engage!
Success in Aging® Essentials Boxes help fight social isolation and offer a healthy dose of HOPE: Helping Older People Engage! I align myself with products, services and companies with a high level of integrity and the strong benefits these products and services offer to older adults, the disabled and veterans. I believe in ethical business practices, excellent customer service, and staying true to our vision or the company.
My vision of Success in Aging® has three categories:
Proaction: Actively engaging with your aging process, choosing how you want to age.
Parameters: Realities of your health and your budget, and your choices within them.
Preferences: Your personal tastes and lifestyles, looking toward a joyful older age!
I am a great believer in “getting off the couch” early when it comes to positive aging. The sooner we start to prepare and plan for our own old age, the better! Whatever your age, today is a great day to begin working toward your own Success in Aging®.
