We can all be challenged as we witness our aging process...humor and gratitude for the life we've had and the beauty that surrounds us inTaos can be good medicine. But it can be more challenging to witness the loss of functional strength and capacity in those we visit and care for...
I invite you to participate in a conversation exploring these challenges, and our responses, as we discuss perspectives that can ease our sense of grief and loss as we recognize the inherent and enduring dignity of being human.
