Randy Pierce spoke at the Moore Center’s annual celebration about his 2020 vision quest. “I can’t see, but I celebrate ability awareness. What you can do is always going to be more important than what you can’t do,” Pierce said.
With his guide dog Autumn at his side, Pierce shared how he lost his sight to a neurological disorder.
But from his lowest point, he chose to reach the highest by climbing New Hampshire’s tallest peaks.

Nick Hebert is very ambitious – especially when it comes to his vending machine business. He loves talking snacks and he knows his stuff!

The best way to avoid the high cost of a nursing home is to avoid incidents that take your choice away. This is by far the most cost-effective approach to ensuring the best quality of life for the least possible cost.
To help you identify incidents that could take your choice away we offer a Free In-Home Risk Assessment. This assessment will help you understand the high-risk activities that your elderly loved one faces that could cause them to lose their independence and end up in a nursing home.
