Assisted Living Becomes Real for Baby Boomers
Journalist Martin Bayne finds purpose in sharing his assisted living experience with fellow boomers
A Voice for the Voiceless
Journalist and MIT graduate Martin Bayne ended up in an assisted living facility well before his time due to the onset of Parkinson's Disease at age 44. Now 63, he paints a picture for those outside of these facilities for what the realities are inside walls. That reality, he says, seems to be permeated with "ambient despair;" whose residents seem so often forgotten in the mad rush of society. Through his spiritual approach and driven philosophy, Martin has been able to channel his painful experiences and struggles into a greater purpose. Read more about Martin's efforts to implement policy changes and new technologies to help all who are in the difficult process of aging and facing their own mortality.
