Self-help program for “senior class” in Hadley

HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – Living life to the fullest is within everyone’s grasp according to Amherst Psychotherapist Dorothy Furman.

Firman wrote the book called “Engaging Life: Living Life to the Fullest.” She made a presentation to 200 members of the “senior class” from the Baystate Franklin Medical Center at an event in Hadley on Wednesday. The “senior class” attends a variety of self-help programs.

Firman told 22News her advice isn’t just for seniors, “I would say that to my seven year old grand daughter and I would say it anyone. We make our lives what they are by our own attitudes and commitments.”

Kip Bowen of Sunderland told 22News, “If you have a good relationship; it makes it terrific. Been married 53 years to the same person.”

The “senior class” served by Baystate Medical Center and Franklin Medical Center in Greenfield has an estimated 20,000 members.
