Here in the Puget Sound regions and throughout the nation, we are witnessing an explosion of baby boomers reaching retirement. An increasing number of this generation will be affected by dementia and other frailties. The quality of life for these elders and their families will be determined by how well community services and programs are prepared to respond to their needs.
We believe that a spirit-centered program – one that enriches the lives of older adults in our community and allows them to age in place and remain independent longer – is an essential element of wellness. We predict that this approach will be increasingly recognized. We already see a change in attitude towards aging in our region, as well as nationwide.
Elderwise is playing a central role in the (r)evolution of elder care, drawing on more than 15 years experience. We have earned a reputation as a local leader in thoughtful, enriching, adult day programs, filling a critical gap in local services for older adults by offering a trusted solution for families.
Our vision is that one day all adults will have the opportunity to interact in stimulating, creative and supportive communities throughout their life. In this way, we can share wisdom and respect, and co-create community. I hope you will join Elderwise in this vision to transform the culture of aging.
