I lived with my grandparents for 6 years and I saw the ins and outs of their lives. This experience taught me a lot about the importance of social engagement and exercise, and the impact these factors have on a person's quality of life. When my professional squash career wrapped up, I was ready to help others keep moving and stay connected so that they can live well and feel their best. Keep moving, stay connected... at first this started as a phrase to describe what I wanted to do with Aging Well, and it quickly turned into the tag line, since it's exactly what I want to help people with! Folks need new and creative ways to stay healthy and safe right now, and that's where Aging Well by Rubi Living services fit into the picture.
