Practice Philosophy

Over the years, Martha Grove has been opportune to work with families facing situations that outweigh the strength to make sense of them. She has touched suffering and tremendous pain but has been able to see the generous gifts of the eldercare relationship. Families have shown their expression time and again knowing fully well that their experience can be used as a means of helping others on the journey, brings healing and peace to their lives. During ten years of getting to meet with families every day, facing situations that outweighed their strength to make sense of them, the discussion seemed always to begin with the phrase, “I never imagined…”

My passion today is helping every person to see aging in provocative and new ways that invite conversation and imagination because aging is harder than it needs to be.
