"No one likes to see a lessening of themself"
Normal age-related changes cause a lessening: ie. vision, hearing, energy, flexibility, strength-- not a literal taking away. However, as we try to help parents age well and we become aware of the "lessening," (which parents may have tried to cover up--think driving), doesn't it make sense to look for ways to support or replace so elders can continue to "do?" This probably means empower or substitute.
But how? While we know one size doesn't fit all, we can do some of the leg-work and perhaps partner in the final "doing."
