Posted by Patricia Faust, MGS on May 30, 2019

 

One of the crazy things about aging is that so much happens to our bodies and our brains that we can’t see. We realize that we just can’t move as well as before, that it is hard to get out of a chair, or our balance just isn’t what it used to be - it can be daunting. How did this even happen?
