Proactive Autumn Travelers and Power of Mercy Mission: 

Proactive Autumn Travelers Help the Aging Silvers Cope with the Aging Gap, Getting Older and Aging at Home  

Those in the Aging Gap experience a gradual  Loss of Independence due for instance to chronic ailments.  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.  

Autumn Travelers helping Hands: The New Vision to support Aging Gap and Living at Home.  
  • Autumn Travelers help both themselves and those in the Aging Gap cope with nonmedical issues such as benefits, housing, transportation, etc.  
  • AT.er's help  those in the Aging Gap  find support and services to remain Independent and Live at Home for as Long as possible.
.
Proactive Autumn Traveler Vision:  Create a technology  and resource community with a single point of contact so that  aging adults  and/or Disabled Veterans (or their Caregivers) can find the resources in N/NW suburbs to help them cope with daily concerns and issues of getting older.
