This may be the golden era for aging.

With people living longer, seniors want more choices for living active, fulfilling lives. Abundant opportunities for stimulating educational and social programs are available, along with a wide variety of in-home, independent and assisted living options. The increase in in-home care providers and ways to increase accessibility and mobility enables seniors to stay in their homes longer if they choose.

Retirement communities now offer many independent living options from cottages to apartements for active seniors. Even nursing home care is becoming more homelike with the advent of the Green House model and other settings that create a home for aging residents who need assistance to get through the day

You can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old.
~George Burns

The Fifth Commandment

“Honor your father and mother, so that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your G‑d gives you.”

“The 10 Commandments are recorded twice in the Torah. The first time they appear is in the portion of Yitro and the second time is in the portion of Va’Etchanan. When they appear the second time the wording is a bit different, as the words ‘The L-rd, your G‑d, commanded you’ are added. The additional words underscore the fact that although we have a natural tendency to honor our parents, this tendency can wane depending upon circumstances. When, however, we are reminded that this is a direct command from G‑d, we are made to understand that fulfilling this obligation has nothing to do with our personal feelings or experiences.”
~ Rabbi Yeruchem Eilfort on


“A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children.But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture.”
– Abraham Joshua Heschel
