Mary Maxwell’s Invocation at the 2012 Aging in America Conference


Mary Maxwell reminds us once again that laughter is the best medicine with her invocation at the 2012 ASA Conference. Hear her commentary on marriage, technology, the unexpected stumbling blocks of old age, and Lady Gaga. Mary also discusses things she is thankful for, which range from caregivers and Home Instead Senior Care, to senior texting abbreviations such as DWI (Driving While Incontinent). Her invocation includes a retelling of the poignant poem "Blessed in Aging," meant to tell those who work with and care for seniors how much their efforts mean to aging adults everywhere. Do not miss this YouTube sensation's kick off to the conference.

    Hello! I loved your speech! I work for an assisted living community and we are hosting our first ever talent show! I think it would be a great idea if this speech was the opening act. Is there anyway you can send me the script to your speech? Thank you.
