What are the Benefits of Getting Older?

Many people associate aging with a slew of losses. For example, you may be concerned about losing your health, significant other, financial stability, physical attractiveness, independence and freedom, and important social ties, among other things.

Still, keeping your mind open and having a positive attitude regarding aging can help you see some benefits of getting older.

For example, as you age, you may grow less concerned about what others think of you, allowing you to be more relaxed and playful. You may also have clearer priorities and boundaries, knowing what you want from life and not stressing about irrelevant things.

You may also feel more comfortable in your own skin and become more confident. You also become wiser due to the rich life experiences and adversity you have endured.

Finally, now that the kids have moved out and you don’t have to go to work, you may have more time for yourself and the activities you like doing, so take advantage of that.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
