Seniors face many challenges. The body moves slower, it aches, the mind is not as sharp as it used to be, and the senses become dull. Feelings of isolation and loss of community make growing old lonely. It is easy for the aged to retreat into their homes and stop socially interacting with others because of hearing loss or a significant life transition like the death of a spouse. They may become fearful and develop depression or anxiety. However, many dread leaving the familiar, comfortable part of their lives to move into a retirement home.
