What is Our Elephant in the Room Series?

December 28, 2022

To cap off an amazing year, we’re taking this opportunity to go down Memory Lane. Throughout 2022, we created a blog each month to discuss some of the harder topics that can accompany aging.

Our Elephant in the Room Series addressed complex issues and offered recommendations on the best ways to navigate various issues, from urinary tract infections to dementia. We tackled the tough stuff with the hope that it would reach and offer comfort to our readers.
