“I wanted long term care so my daughter would not struggle if I needed extra care.”
As we were setting up our information booth for the opening ceremonies, I paused as a group of senior athletes gathered around, pushing the wheelchair of a fellow athlete proudly holding the olympic torch. It was a heartening reminder of the olympic spirit that can live in us all, young and old alike.
Gail and I were pleased to share information on long term care planning with these inspiring seniors. They showed appreciation for the possibility of pursuing their athletic potential with the confidence – knowing they will be able to maintain their lifestyle and independence, regardless of their future health.
Hats off to you!
