"Late Life is a specific and special time of aging, and elders and their families need to engage this time more fully, consciously, practically, and successfully. Slow Medicine is not a plan for getting ready to die; it is a plan for understanding, for caring, and for living well in the time that is left."
-from My Mother, Your Mother
