One benefit of aging is having time to reflect, says Vickie Crompton of Borup, a community of about 100 people in northwest Minnesota. “Reaching that point in life of appreciating everything more is the best part about getting older,” says Vickie.
Vickie wishes more people had a better understanding about aging and the importance of family. “You can’t do some things like before, but seniors would like to be able to see their family more,” says Vickie. She points out that some seniors need extra help, such as rides to doctor appointments.
Vickie says Minnesotans should pay close attention to senior care issues. “We all go through the same things,” says Vickie.
