The end of 2021 is quickly approaching. It is time to ring in the New Year and to establish some hopeful resolutions. Perhaps you have an elderly loved one who has recently been hospitalized due to an illness or injury. Your aging loved one may have been fairly active within their community, as a large portion of this generation of seniors is, and feels stuck in their home. While studies have shown that a vast majority of seniors would prefer to live out their years in their own homes for as long as possible, your loved one might want to get out and about.
