A group of remarkable women recently completed CJFS' second 'Aging with Grace' series. Led by licensed clinical social worker, Gail Schuster, the six-week long program explored the "burdens and blessings" of aging, focusing on relationships, forgiveness, gratitude, regret, fear, loneliness, and the future. Although the participants' perspectives on aging with grace varied, there was a common thread acknowledged by all:  Age is just a number, you can do anything you set your mind to, no matter how old you are...never put an age limit on your dreams!!!

According to one participant, "I was attracted to this group because, while I think I am doing a good job of 'aging with grace', I know there is always room to do things better, and I am open to it."  Another added, "It was the program's positive perspective on aging that intrigued me."  If you are interested in participating in a future 'Aging with Grace' program, please contact Gail Schuster at  gail@cjfsbham.org
