1. This important reminder to pay attention to the long-term care crisis in The Washington Post.
Considering most long-term care services are provided by unpaid family members/friends, this thought-provoking 2-part column examines the emotional fortitude needed to receive/give #caregiving services. #StandWithSeniors | @washingtonpost @SingletaryM https://t.co/Ky1c8hNRJD

2. This story from MIT’s Joe Coughlin on the importance of FUN!
Excellent read. You can count on @josephcoughlin to flip the script & get you thinking. Be sure to watch the short embedded video on @RendeverHealth and the role virtual reality can play in creating wonder and happiness in older adults. https://t.co/mGwLt5pSRz #55andfakingnormal

5. This beautiful phrasing elevating kindness and respect at the end of life. Words matter!
One of our physicians just referred to the removal of a breathing tube on a patient where we are allowing natural death as a “compassionate extubation” instead of our normal verbiage of “terminal wean.”
First time hearing it & I absolutely love the difference in word choice.
