What we will learn from presentation?
• The challenges of starting a new business.
• The types of care, training, and experience needed from employees.

• Spouseless elderly usually have no friends at a very old age and need to be involved somehow in the community in order to stay connected.
• Elderly people love to be loved and a hug goes a very long way.
