What is a Legacy?

legacy noun \leg-uh-see] : anything handed down from the past. Most people over the age of 50 have a will, which is one form of legacy. But a true legacy goes beyond who gets your belongings. Leaving a legacy is a gift you give to yourself now so that family and friends will know and celebrate your stories when you’re no longer here to tell them. Creating a legacy is a journey through your past, gathering stories, lessons and joys so that you can appreciate and share them.

Successful Aging

Everyone wants to have physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being as you age. That journey requires intention. With every choice you make – to exercise or not; to attend a class or not; to entertain or not – you are creating your future. Successful aging invites you to stay engaged in life and the cornucopia of experiences and possibilities that surround you. Looking back into your family history and your own personal journey can be a powerful bridge into the future you want to live as you age.
