Aging in Place Influencers for 2014

Aging in Place

At the end of each year I think deeply about who influenced me over the past year concerning my purpose of helping others with Aging in Place. This year’s group is different from those of the past because it includes not just individuals, but groups too (including relatives); and there is even a NEGATIVE influencer this year as well. As always I wish to include a disclaimer–the list is not meant to be exhaustive, in fact, it often falls sort. But if you feel you’ve had an impact and I’ve left you out–please make contact and set me straight!

The Power of Negative Visualization for Aging in Place

Here’s where Aging in Place and Negative Visualization come into play; visualize losing your independence (the unthinkable) and reflect on how much you would miss it. Know that the Ancient Stoic Philosophers saw their role a guides to the Good Life and Negative Visualization was the most powerful tool to the goal. Thinking about loss can lead to a better life now.
