While you and I can quickly bounce back and pick up where we have left off, many seniors have problems remembering where they were before hospitalization. What used to be standard operating procedures have become new challenges. Routine activities have to be re-learnt and re-remembered. Weakened joints and muscles need to be re-strengthened. The mushy brain needs rejuvenation, stimulations and mental exercises.
In retrospect, I am glad I took Mom to Italy to visit K and S when she was still in her Golden Years. I mean how many seniors are like Betty White, still performing, earning an income, and out-living others?
