Words are powerful. They can bring hope and comfort in times of grief, inspiration when we long to be better, and show love to those around us. According to some studies, words can change the outcome of our entire lives. For isolated and lonely older adults, that change can mean fewer health issues and a happier more fulfilling life. Brighten a senior’s day with kind and comforting words written by our Ready to Care community.
