Shekedia Cohen shares an inspiring story of grace in the face of aging

Shekedia Cohen wears many hats at Yad Sarah; one of them is as a volunteer at the Exhibition & Guidance Center at Yad Sarah House in Jerusalem. One day, an elderly man with a walking stick and two helpers – his daughter and his caregiver – came in to the Center. How can we help? With spring coming, Michael wanted to get out of the house more often and wanted to know what equipment might be best to help him maintain his balance and stability when walking around outside. We started talking with our guest and his daughter, Yofi. During the course of our conversation, we were astonished to learn that Michael was 101 years old. Michael also shared with us that he was not sure he was ready to appear in public with a walker. Nevertheless, curiosity got the better of him and Michael tried a walker and then a rollator to see how they affected his stability and movement. "So how am I?" Michael asked us with a mischievous smile. What would be more appropriate – the walker or the rollator? It was so good to meet Michael and to feel the positive energy he brought to the Exhibition & Guidance Center. Despite his age, and to our delight, Michael decided what was right for him. He's still in charge of his own fate! I wish Michael continued happiness, courage, and the determination to make every day a good one.
