Meet Betty Steinberg, a spirited 98-year-old woman whose journey to Assisted Living is an inspiring testament to resilience, independence, and the beauty of finding the right support when life takes unexpected turns.
Betty's life story is one of enduring love. She and her late husband, "Lee," shared a lifelong bond that started on roller skates. Their love story bloomed in Newark, NJ, where they crafted a life together filled with adventure, partnership, and creativity. Lee's talent as a professional photographer beautifully captured the essence of people's lives, often focusing on the elegance of portraits and the joy of weddings.
For decades, Betty thrived in her own home, just a stone's throw away from her daughter. She reveled in her independence, taking charge of her daily life while her daughter offered occasional help and companionship.
However, life has a way of surprising us when we least expect it. A setback that led to a hospital stay prompted Betty and her family to consider alternative living arrangements. Suddenly faced with the prospect of leaving her cherished home, Betty embarked on a journey to find a place that could provide the right level of care, community, and comfort she deserved. With determination and a limited budget, Betty's family reached out to Senior Care Authority for support and guidance and Betty found a new home that felt like an extension of her own family.
At 98, We asked her what wisdom she would impart to those seeking a life filled with happiness and meaning. Her words were simple yet profound: "Get Along" and "Be a Good Person." With a smile that radiates positivity, Betty's charisma and wisdom continue to inspire everyone she meets. Take Betty’s wisdom into September and see if it doesn’t make your life better!
