USA Today Spotlights Expertise of SeniorBridge's Eric C. Rackow, MD About Resources Seniors Need as They Age
USA Today - September 29, 2011 - Excerpt:
SeniorBridge and Dr. Eric Rackow were featured in USA Today, the widest circulated print newspaper in the country, as part of a story on aging tied to a new book by 93-year-old evangelist, Billy Graham. In the story, the reporter spotlights the sub-text of the book, which is pragmatic advice about aging gracefully and the need to provide medical and emotional support to those navigating a decline in function and loss of friends.
The trigger for this book was a comment Graham made in a 2006 interview: "I had been taught all of my life how to die, but no one had ever taught me how to grow old."
No one prepares you for loneliness, for pain, for the grief of losing your soul mate, he now writes. When his wife, Ruth, died in June 2007, he was stunned that she died before he did. He had never envisioned his life without her.
Graham says he wanted the book to be the handbook he never had - spiritual, pragmatic and fearless.
Eric Rackow, a critical care physician and CEO of the nation's largest geriatric-care management company, SeniorBridge, says that "People need advice like this to navigate their future."
