Senses of touch, taste and smell can weaken as well. These sensory changes alter the way we experience the world and ultimately impact quality of life.

They abandoned their high-paying corporate jobs, became the owners of Womencrafts (a feminist bookstore), and seamlessly blended into Provincetown’s LGBT community.
