On January 18th the fifth season of Grace and Frankie was released on Netflix. If you haven’t binged watched it already, Grace and Frankie tells the story of two former rivals who became roommates and later friends when their husbands leave them to marry each other after a long affair. The hilariously witty show does a wonderful job highlighting the experiences and struggles many older adults face and can teach us so much about aging and the importance of relationships.

Let’s start here because this needs to be said: seniors are valuable.
As someone who works for an organization that is committed to helping older adults, you may think I’m biased. It’s true; my work securing funding for H.O.M.E. has taught me just how much seniors have to offer.
