SENIORS COPE WITH LIMITS AND BOUNDARIES

Jul 12th, 2012 | By | Category: Senior Moments Blog

While seniors wish to be able to do everything they have always done, enjoying their independence and relative freedom, there crop up now and then those limits and boundaries that remind us we cannot. It is an unpleasant revelation to discover that what once came easily and without much thought, now requires awareness of consequences.

Recently on an outing to lunch with my mother, we discovered the lack of ramps available from the parking area to the restaurant. She requires a walker and mobility issues are impeded when broken cement blocks your way. Some make light of next to the entrance handicapped parking , but if you need it, you understand how essential it is. When going out, check with the restaurant regarding their facility and ability to accommodate a person who may have handicapping conditions.
