All month long we have been reposting portions of articles about Next Avenue's Influencers of Aging 2016...some really incredible people. Just her quote alone shows the reason why Ashton Applewhite was chosen as their Influencer of the Year.

"Catalyze a social movement to raise awareness of ageism that would transform the experience of aging in America and make discrimination on the basis of age as unacceptable as racism and sexism. We would no longer see aging as a problem to be 'fixed' or a disease to be 'cured,' but for what it is: a powerful, natural, lifelong process that connects us all." Ashton Applewhite

We started a similar movement in our market and we are quickly becoming known across the country. We provide the best Home Health Automation System available. We believe in PREVENTING them from having to use our emergency response system and in providing the highest quality response if they need to. Because that's the dignity they truly deserve. Call us. 1-800-Alarm-55

And congratulations Ashton Applewhite and on behalf of Seniors touched by you, Thank you! To read all of the truly incredible profiles of Next Avenue's Influencers of Aging 2016 here: http://www.nextavenue.org/showcase/influencers-aging-2016/

'At age 95, Apfel is an unstoppable fashion force who is reclaiming the world of style for older adults with her bold style and anti-ageist messages, including this gem: “I think being interesting is more important than being beautiful.”... She is the subject of the 2014 documentary Iris by Albert Maysles. In 2016, Apfel has appeared in a commercial for a French car, been the face of Australian fashion brand...launched a line of wearables and created a set of emojis.'

She is also one of our favorites of the Next Avenue Influencers of Aging 2016! And she optimizes the reason we do what we do. We provide the very best Home Health Automation system so Seniors can LOVE out their days, not WAIT them out. You inspire us, Apfel! Thanks! 1-800-Alarm-55

WHAT WORDS OF WISDOM DO YOU HAVE ABOUT AGING?
"If you don't learn constantly, you don't grow, and you will wither. Too many people wither on the vine. Sure, it gets a little harder as you get older, but new experiences and new challenges keep it fresh.” (From Apfel's conversation with Tavi Gevinson in Newsweek , Aug. 23. 2013)

"I have been protecting and advocating for seniors my entire career. We need to make it easier for older Americans to remain independent in their homes and active in their communities, instead of living in an institution. Seniors should be informed and prepared to afford health care and long-term care costs. Their families should have support with caregiving needs so everyone could live healthy, productive lives as long as possible." Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham; One of Next Avenue's Influencers of Aging 2016

'As a Congresswoman, she has brought important national attention to caregiving and is considered one of the few in the Capitol who has deep knowledge of, and commitment to, aging issues. She sponsored the National Care Corps Act, which would establish a corps of qualified volunteers to provide assistance and companionship to older adults. She cares for her own mother in her Albuquerque home.'

We are proud our NM Congressional representative gets it! And we are honored to walk this journey alongside of her with countless Senior citizens. We are saving lives daily. It's what we do. Call us. 1-800-Alarm-55 www.electroniccaregiver.com

'IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT AGING IN AMERICA, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
"Immediately delete the aged from the inventory of disposables and invisibles. Restore their dignity and respect. Too often, older people are treated as throwaways. Hence, branding older people as 'Senior Citizens' is not humanizing. Other age groups are not designated as types of citizens. To be an older person is special. Their lifelong contributions are invaluable. Remove the 'Senior Citizen' cocoon and honor 'Older People' as premier architects and protectors of our great society." E. Percil Stanford'; One of Next Avenue's Influencers in Aging 2016

'Stanford’s work in aging has been integral to the development of the field. He helped create the first university programs, including at San Diego State, where he taught for three decades after earning a Ph.D. in sociology/gerontology. He founded and directed the National Institute on Minority Aging...'

At The Electronic Caregiver Company the aged are priceless, never disposable and never invisible. That's why we work so very hard to protect as many as we can. We save lives. Every. Day. Call us. 1-800-Alarm-55. www.electroniccaregiver.com

Another Next Avenue Influencer 2016, Sara Szanton-
"Rather than focus on what older adults can’t do, health services would build on older adults’ strengths, maintaining their dignity and independence. All would have access to screening for declines in physical function like the ability to climb stairs or safely use a bathtub. Then, an inexpensive combination of home modification, occupational therapy and nursing would address or remove concerns, keeping older adults in their homes longer and saving on health care costs." Sarah Szanton
'In her position at Johns Hopkins’ nursing school, Szanton explores how older adults’ environment and stress can affect their health and well-being. The direction of her work was forged from insights she gained early in her career while making house calls to low-income Baltimore elders as a nurse practitioner. She has since developed CAPABLE, an innovative program providing handyman and nursing services to older adults aging in place that has increased mobility, lowered rates of depression and reduced disability by half.'

At The Electronic Caregiver we applaud Next Avenue for recognizing individuals who share and implement truths about aging well. We offer one more tool to the end goal of aging-in-place more safely and longer. Thanks Sarah, together we are saving lives. 1-800-Alarm-55 www.electroniccaregiver.com

"If I could change one thing about aging in America, I would make it required in all senior housing that life-enhancing programs like ours are offered, ones that change people’s lives, improve their health and create a stronger sense of community and purpose. This would create increased independence, health and longevity, improved happiness and sense of self-efficacy to battle ageism and a connection to other generations through multigenerational programming and events in community." Tim Carpenter
'It all started when Carpenter had an idea that retirement communities should be more like college — a beginning instead of an ending.... His vision became a reality in the Burbank Senior Artists Colony, which offered high-quality arts courses, such as creative writing, instead of pass-the-time activities, such as bingo.'
We love this idea Mr. Carpenter! We work hard to keep people aging safely and independently. And there's no better place than their own to be creative. That's a picture we'd all love to help paint! 1-800-Alarm-55 www.electroniccaregiver.com

Inlfuencer on Aging 2016-Kathleen Kelly
‘Through Kelly’s more than 25 years of leadership at the Family Caregiver Alliance (FCA), the organization has provided vital education, services and advocacy for family caregivers, including an online listing with information on services and benefits in their particular state…Kelly also heads the organization’s research arm, the National Center on Caregiving. And she has actively promoted the use of technology in care settings to help make the lives of caregivers easier.’

"As a society, we need to value caregivers and recognize that caregiving will affect everyone at some point in their life. But we also have to acknowledge that caregiving is much more complex than in the past and as such, we need to enact policies across our health and social service systems that both include and support families to maintain their physical, emotional and financial health." Kathleen Kelly

We agree wholeheartedly Kathleen! It's why the Electronic Caregiver is the most advanced system on the market today. We save lives other systems can't!

We are fascinated and inspired by the Next Avenue "2016 Influencers in Aging" and think you will be too! Here's the first of seven reposts of some of their choices. Influencer #7: Louis Tenebaum

'IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT AGING IN AMERICA, WHAT WOULD IT BE? "Policy is a recognized tool for big goals. We need policies supporting middle class Americans to age in the home of their choice, economically, in good health, with dignity...If incentives make age-friendly remodeling less expensive, the number of safe homes will increase. The conversations change. The homes change..."
Tenenbaum’s Homes Renewed group coalesces groups with an interest in upgrading the nation’s housing to better enable aging in place — work that recently led him to win the HIVE 100 Housing Innovators Award.'
We at The Electronic Caregiver Company like the aging-in-place idea, That's why we developed the most technologically advanced Home Health Automation System to help people do just that. Call us. Let's add that new safety net to the remodel plans. 1-800-Alarm-55. www.electroniccaregiver.com

Me·mo·ri·al Day (məˈmôrēəl ˌdā/) noun: Memorial Day-[A day on which those who died in active military service are remembered.]
"I am oppressed with a sense of the impropriety of uttering words on this occasion. If silence is ever golden, it must be beside the graves of fifteen-thousand men, whose lives were more significant than speech, and whose death was a poem the music of which can never be sung." James A. Garfield
The Electronic Caregiver Company salutes you dear Veteran.
Thank you.

The Farmer Almanac reports that the wearing of poppies in honor of America’s war dead is traditionally done on Memorial Day. The origin of the red poppy as a modern-day symbol of this day was actually the idea of an American woman, Miss Moina Michael. Today, poppies are both the symbol of loss of life as a symbol of recovery and new life, especially in support of those servicemen who were damaged physically or emotionally. Thank you to all America's Veterans.
We honor you this weekend.
