A new post was just added to the EmpowermentCoachnet Page on Facebook. Rather than repeat the entire post, I’ll summarize it a little. Empowerment is something we’d like to see and lots of people around the world have been disempowered for a long time. One of the tragedies of disempowerment is what happens to senior citizens, many of whom are very well educated, have been pillars of their community, active, making a positive difference for everyone they contact. As they age and as their bodies and mental processes slow down, they become disempowered–sometimes suddenly, sometimes gradually. In their disempowered state their quality of life starts to decline as well.
We can make a difference for them. The post goes into more detail and there is a workshop available that can help caregivers, families, and others who need to be empowering (teachers, medical staff) to learn to help themselves and, by extension, to help others.
Look at the post for more detail. Joel Montgomery
