Aging Parents Making the Effort? Where There's a Will, There's a Way

         Why do some aging parents make the effort, while others don't?

We see older people with the will. They no doubt aren't as famous as James Levine. Yet they have that something within that pushes them forward and won't let them quit. Sr. Advisor R is one.

I think back to Sr. Advisor R's rehab after breaking her 97-year-old hip (femur) and her observations of the daily small group physical therapy sessions she participated in. She was the oldest there, yet she observed some younger people found the physical therapy very difficult and didn't even try. (We were told, she tried encouraging them.)

That said, why do some do, while others don't make the effort? Does it go back to People Change, Not Much? If they didn't make the effort when they were younger, can they can't be expected to change when they're older?
