Coming from a family of two nurses, the values of compassion and caring were well on display. Working at Aging with Dignity allows me to educate others about a very important part of life which often gets overlooked. As we age, our dignity is more important than ever and deserves to be upheld. Talking with others about a time when we may lose our independence provides an opportunity to point out what steps we can take to tell others how we want to be treated. It brings me great joy to help others bring this topic of Five Wishes into everyday conversation.
