About Our Aging Society

Our Aging Society - Virginia BowerAbout Our Aging Society : Thank you for visiting!

I hope you find all the information you were looking for.  I am in the process of building this site for that reason only… to give you the information you may not be able to find anywhere else. I also hope that with my experience you can avoid some of the things that I have had to navigate through. Some real muddy paths, I tell ya!
So, who am I? My name is Virginia Bower and my experience with senior care, senior living actually started 5 years ago with my younger sister. Even though my younger sister is not a senior citizen, she is till treated as one due to her disabilities.

My sister was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in her early thirties. Due do the lack of care and medication, she needed to be in a nursing home in her mid forties. I became her POA (Power of Attorney) back in 2009.

Two years ago I became my mothers POA and then realized her property had been stolen (senior fraud) from her and I then became her guardian and we are currently in the process of getting her property back. It is a long drawn out road I have been down, which wouldn’t have been too bad if there weren’t all the road blocks or the lack of information available to me. All in all, if you haven’t been down the roads I have been down, I hope the information here will help you. That is my biggest hope: That you are able to get the much needed information from this site that you need.
