Proactive Silvers and Power of Mercy Mission: 

Proactive Silvers Helping Aging Silvers Cope with Getting Older and Age at Home  

An Aging  Silver's  Loss of Independence due to chronic ailments  IS GRADUAL.  As an example Arthritis ....One day you wake up and find you hurt all over and are having a hard time walking.  Over time walking gets harder and you progress from a cane to a walker and then maybe to a wheelchair; Or perhaps you need grab bars to get in or out of a bathtub;  Or maybe a handy man to make minor repairs.  

Senior in Action helping Hands: The New Vision to support Aging at Home.  
  • Senior in Actions helpiboth themselves and older adults deal with nonmedical issues such as benefits, housing, transportation, etc.
