Discover Successful Aging
Senior Living at First & Main of Lewis Center

The Difference between Growing and Growing Old
Studies prove that the aging process is up to us. We can actually choose whether aging is a slow, gradual process – growing older day by day – or whether most of our senior years are active and full of purpose and happiness. Every day brings an opportunity to choose. Simply grow, or grow older.
