In my presentations, I often mention the three attributes considered important for aging well: Adaptability, Flexibility and Resilience. Now, I want to add Resourcefulness to the Essentials for Aging list.

Resourcefulness is about recognizing and tapping into your own internal ingenuity. Think of it as knowing how you have handled the daily challenges and requirements of your life — from balancing your schedule to making a meal out of what’s in your fridge and pantry, to dealing with the unexpected demands that can be counted on to crop up. Resourcefulness is figuring out whom to turn to or where to go to get help with those daily needs.

Over the past few months, our Resource Page has become broader and more comprehensive. Our expanded categories of resources, updated regularly, have attracted comments and additional suggestions for inclusion from people in other states who found us and liked what they saw.

We’re pleased to be the place folks go to find help and ideas for the many interests and changing needs in their lives. The more resources we have, the more resourceful we become. Look through what we have and let us know if there is a resource that you think would belong on our list.

Let us hear from you!
