AGING – A conversation that NEEDS to be had.
Franklin, NH – Aging. It’s something we are doing every day but don’t want to think about. And when we DO stop to think about it, the thought usually is focused on how we can slow down or delay the aging process.
The book Being Mortal by Atul Gawande, MD is about addressing the fact that we ARE aging and HOW to start the discussion with your spouse, your children or your parents! Dr. Gawande is a surgeon at Brigham and Woman’s Hospital in Boston, MA. He writes about the difficulty the medical profession has in discussing issues of chronic illness and dying, particularly as it relates to elders. This is a must read for everyone!
Peabody Home is in the business of aging and is acutely aware of the importance of providing a “sense of purpose”, a reason to get up in the morning. We are not just a “waiting room to die” but a place where the next stage of life can be embraced. The caregivers are asked to build on the client’s strengths, what they can do for themselves and minimize weaknesses.
Peabody Home is a small, not for profit home in the middle of New Hampshire. Our mission is to serve a total of 44 residents by providing professional and loving care in a homelike environment instilling moments of joy, time to reflect and time to share memories of a life well lived… Our mixture of care levels include Independent Living, Assisted Living and full Nursing care. We are able to help manage the expense of caregivers by only charging for the services that you need.
