Several months ago I started working on East Bay Smart Senior, thinking that it would take a couple of weeks to get it ready to publish. It has taken almost ten months, but now I am ready to share it with the world. I hope that you enjoy reading it and that you learn a lot about what our community has to offer its elderly residents.
You may be asking “Why all of these photos of seniors in bathing suits and with surf boards?” I hope you will take a few minutes to scroll down to the first articles I wrote last summer that describe the reasons for the blog and its theme. Seniors surfing-why not?
I feel fortunate to have had a career working with seniors and their families. I have learned so much and want to share that knowledge with others who might be able to use it. But I certainly do not know everything. Please send your comments and suggestions for future articles. I want to know what you think about my little blog and I want it to be helpful to you.
