January is almost over…and that means that February is upon us and love will soon be in the air! This year, we’d like to turn the focus of Valentine’s Day into less about romance and more about self-care. There are 365 days in a year and chances are you give the gift of love and consideration to others all year long – but you devote very few days to YOU. As we age and our needs change, self-care becomes an even more important and vital task to your health, well-being and of course- happiness!
Like many great things in life, self-care starts right at home! If you tuned into our most recent podcast, you heard Marin Villages CEO Lisa Brinkmann share her top tips for fall-proofing your home. In that spirit, we’d like to share our comprehensive list of Senior Spotlight resources dedicated to your safety and comfort right where your heart is – at home!
