 The Power of The GREY Dollars

 Florida is the state where seniors want to retire, seniors have more medical conditions and ailments.  Seniors need more medical care.  As people age they have more anxiety, Crohn’s disease, irritation bowel syndrome, PTSD and particularly chronic low back pain or general pain.   Seniors are miserable in New York, because the weather is changing from minus 20 degree F to 95 degree Farenheit.  It makes it harder for seniors to shovel snow when people approach 60 year old.   It is much harder to get out of the driveway or entrance door to refill medications.

In Florida, there is no snow to shovel before seniors go to local pharmacies.  Seniors don’t need to break their back, or slip on icy pavement and risking breaking a bone or a hip fracture.
