A Message From Our Board Chair

LeadingAge Board Chair, Carol Silver Elliott, offers this message to members about the need for recharging during these challenging times.

The technology we all depend on plugs in or sits on a charger to recharge. We can’t do that to ourselves, but we can find ways to rebuild our strength and restore our energy. Of course, one of the best ways to do that is to give ourselves a break. Even a day or two away from work can help, just changing the scene. It’s even better if we can unplug. I fail dismally at that but if you can do it, it helps create that time of rest.

Read the entire message from Carol about taking care of yourself and looking for ways to boost yourself and others.
