I would like to thank you personally for spending some time to get to know Special Touch. My name is Evan Ostrovsky, and I would like to speak briefly about why I am here.
Most of us grew up with families that included older relatives: parents, grandparents – sometimes even great-grandparents. When we’re young, we don’t necessarily notice the effects of aging. We understand that some people are older than others, sure, but the tolls of aging aren’t immediately apparent. Eventually, though, we start to notice when our grandparents can’t run with us, when their memory starts to fade, and when medical issues become more serious.
When I was a child, several of my grandparents moved into assisted-living facilities. I remember not seeing them as often. The annual Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma’s was relocated to other homes. There were no more sleepovers, or visits to homes that had grown to feel like they were mine.
Ultimately, I’m here because it’s important to me that there are options to support our elders without experiencing the sense of loss that my family went through.
