A NewBridge on the Charles Resident Reflects on a Father’s Journey

June 18, 2015

The Bussgang family, Julian and Fay Bussgang, Jeff and Lynda Bussgang and their three children.

As children we may look up to our fathers as superheroes. As we age, we realize our fathers are not invincible, but human with their own personal stories of how they overcame the most difficult challenges in their own lives. The Bussgang men, including NewBridge on the Charles resident Julian, and his father, Jozef (now deceased), survived many challenges in their lives.

Through it all, all three men have been strong and inspiring role models to their children.

As we age, many of us will face a number of health-related challenges. One big concern for older adults is a decrease in muscle strength (sarcopenia) and bone loss (osteoporosis). There is evidence that up to 50% of adults may suffer muscle loss as they age and further research estimates 54 million U.S. adults have low bone density or osteoporosis. Unfortunately, an osteoporotic fracture occurs every 3 seconds according to the International Osteoporosis Foundation.

You can improve the lives of seniors today, and for generations to come.
