Taking life for granted

When you are young you don’t really give much thought about getting old.  It is time to have fun and enjoy life, good health and friends.  At twenty do you remember thinking that someone who was 50 was “old” and grandparents in their 60’s & 70’s were really ready to be put to pasture?

As we creep closer to these ages and beyond, we still want to feel young, but just know the body no longer lets us be so agile.   I was looking at my hands yesterday realising how they have aged, now like I remember my mothers looking.   I then drew back and thought about how I felt inside.   I have been fortunate and lived a healthy life, but certainly as I am ageing, parts of me are starting to tell me to slow down, few aches in the hips etc, and that maybe I should exercise a little more, to keep the joints from stiffening up.

It is not hard to understand how painful it must be to move, when joints are stiff and movement is limited.    I am so proud to feel that I have been able to work with the Care Managers to design the right clothing for their residents with High Care needs.    For more information about dignified and comfortable clothing, please browse my website here.
