We have all been there, engaging in a conversation with an elderly person and their families, inquiring about how we can assist, patient goals, and so forth.
The elderly person insists that nothing is wrong and that they are fine, while the family member (looking slightly perplexed and vigorously shaking their head) insists that they are not fine at all and provides a list of extremely serious problems.
The happiest times of our lives
When we all take a moment to reflect, what are the happiest times of our lives? They are occasions to spend time with family. Seeing our children take their first steps, their first successful wee on a potty, their first time swimming, their first day of school, their weddings, and witnessing the arrival of the next generation. For those without children, quality time with their partners or close friends is equally important.
