Chances are I will learn something positive about aging every time I visit my readers at the retirement home. But, having signed a confidentiality agreement, I can't really talk about individuals.
Nevertheless, it is probably acceptable to say that the most optimistic and cheerful person I have visited so far is also the one with the severest mobility and vision challenges. "Alice's" enthusiasm and love of life is a tonic and inspiration.
Unfortunately, she doesn't really need my services. Her daughter keeps her well supplied with audio books.
But maybe I can just drop in on Alice for a chat--whenever my spirit needs a lift. Every couple of days?
