I was surprised when my fellow resident told me she didn’t like the name of this series. She found it too depressing. To me, when one chooses to live in a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), which is what my senior residence is, one is making an end of life decision and it becomes the Last Stop. Sure, I find my death hard to think about but I am convinced that I have found a good way to live before it happens.
Another friend, hearing the criticism of the title, suggested I call the series Moving on. What do my readers think?
This post was written by Margery Fridstein, an author and retired psychotherapist who lives in a CCRC outside of Denver, CO. She is chronicling her experience in the monthly series, “The Last Stop With Margery Fridstein.”
