It happens slowly.
So slowly in fact, that we hardly notice.
Until one day, the wrinkles on the face of the person looking back at us in the mirror bely the youth still burning within.
The abilities we’ve had for so long – our sight, our agility, our energy, our memory – we can no longer take for granted. The older we get, the more we have to rely on others.
Compromises are made so we don’t impose. We give up some independence.
We don’t want to be a burden – a task for those who help us.
PROOF of CARE understands.
