At the 2015 Aging Life Care Association™ annual conference, members shared examples of the broad range of skills and services Aging Life Care Professionals™ employ when working with clients.
In this particular story from Aging Life Care Professional Connie McKenzie, RN, CMC, we hear the inspirational story of a 100 year-old lady, who with the help and coordination from Aging Life Care™ Managers, was able to continue traveling to Paris and Jamaica until the age of 105.
“She proved you can do anything at any age. You can live to the fullest. Sometimes it takes help, and in this case everything a care manager did for her helped her to meet that goal,” says Connie.
To continue living life to the fullest, consult with an Aging Life Care Professional to create a care plan that helps you live life on your terms.
