Ageing is not something that takes place in an instant. Like puberty, its start and end dates are impossible to predict; as is what life will be like on the other side of it. Ageing is a process that takes place over time.

To help others as they age tools are necessary to develop empathy towards their situation. Being able to walk in someone else's shoes can be helpful to develop empathy and understand the other person's situation.

Our hearing is very important for social situations & our general well being. As we age, so does our hearing. It's therefore important we keep our minds healthy by keeping our ears fit!

Summer/Winter/Spring Classes for the elderly. As an added incentive, mobile clinics can be setup at these locations bi-monthly for elderly to get expert advice. Growing up in a community and location where everything is available.
