An Old Chick Named Hazel
Meet Hazel, a senior that has aged and lives at home alone. Hazel who is full of spunk and bright ideas is also the family historian. She raised and educated five children and built a successful business. When she retired, she often would travel up and down the east coast visiting her children and grandchildren. As Hazel got older, things changed and she couldn’t travel and get around well anymore. The children who had busy lives wanted Hazel to move in with one of them but Hazel had different ideas and wanted to stay in her home. This blog provides practical tips for helping seniors like Hazel live independently in their own home.
Many of the tips in the Hazel blog came from the mini e-book An Old Chick Named Hazel - A practical guide to help seniors live independently, published in 2012. Many of the tips and ideas have been updated since that publishing and are here for your use.
