As residents of Door County get older, they face several tough life events such as retirement, relocation, and illness. ADRC director Jake Erickson said constant communication with aging loved ones is extremely important in maintaining relationships and easing several large transitions. He said keeping constant communication is vital to helping older adults feel as if they can be relied upon.
