A lifelong New Yorker, Dale pulled up stakes and moved to Florida too, relocating herself and her business as a commercial interior designer. On the show Dale tells us how both she and her father rebuilt their lives after her mother died, from answering her father’s questions about dating when he started socializing again and his unexpected move into a senior living community, to caring for her father as he declined from Alzheimer’s disease and eventually starting her company Aging in Place, USA. Get out a pen and paper: this episode is loaded with ideas for changes you can make to your home if you want to age in place safely and comfortably.
