When the voices of elders, families and caregivers come together, the music is beautiful and the power of their sound is tremendous.
The Voice of Aging, an affiliate of Applegate Elder Law, works to create that same effect by bringing together a team of elder care specialists, resources, and tools to engage, empower, and enhance the quality of life for caregivers and elders. Founded by Carol Applegate, The Voice of Aging is the voice of advocacy for elders and caregivers.
Advocacy leads to empowerment. Advocacy may mean mediation between family members. It might be meeting with nursing home staff along with an elder or caregiver. Advocacy could look like developing a home maintenance plan to keep your residence’s value up and then referral to a realtor specializing in selling senior’s homes. Advocacy enables the elder and family to make decisions before a crises that will prepare everyone and avoid a 911 response in the future.
The journey of aging is filled with curves and roadblocks. The Voice of Aging is designed to provide caregivers and elders tools to anticipate bumps in the road; navigate the journey; and ensure reaching the desired final destination.
