A Room With A View, Please with Renée Balcom

If you think about where you would like to spend the final years of your life, you most certainly won't pick an eight-by-ten room in a building living with a bunch of strangers and having to report for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Yet somehow, society pushes us to believe it is an ideal place for older adults. 

In this episode, I'm talking with Renée Balcom, Professional Healthcare Advocate, Founder and CEO of Renée & CO, Keynote Speaker, and Author. Today, Renée helps us understand how we can offer the best environment to our loved ones in their final years.
