An AARP poll revealed 85% of seniors want to stay in their homes for life. Most fear losing their independence and going into a nursing home more than they fear death. Count me in as part of the 85%. I have a passion to stay home, remain as healthy as possible, surround myself with great friends and have a strong purpose for getting up each day. That purpose is to help other seniors maximize and enjoy this very fulfilling stage of life. Successfully helping myself and others requires training. To that end, I took 500 hours of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, got certified by the National Association of Home Builders as an Aging in Place Specialist, ISSA trained and certified in Fitness for Seniors, got licensed by Retirement Options as a Retirement Coach, and am a Florida Realtor.
