Be Your Own Hero

Senior Living Decisions Simplified

Your Dreams Are Still Alive

The decisions we make from our hearts, using good guidance and information, are often the best ones. Our culture focuses on reactionary health care rather than proactive life decisions. This approach can be devastating if we wait too long to choose a positive living environment.


•Make proactive, educated decisions versus reactive, crisis-driven decisions
•Identify the key influencers and their roles in the decision process
•Understand the difference between aging in place and putting in place what you need to age well
