When are you too old? That is a question we ask ourselves throughout our life. In our twenties, before having a family, we might ask: I am too old to play with toys? And yet once we have children or later grandchildren, we again have fun with the Play-Doh, dolls and the toy trucks of our youth. Society often tries to answer these questions for us. You’re too old for a Happy Meal, says the clerk, or perhaps later your family says, “you’re too old to drive a car.
Dr. Elaine Berkowitz: An Extraordinary Life of Service
By Janice Lane Palko
Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile – Albert Einstein
To say that Dr. Elaine Berkowitz has lived a life of service is an understatement. From the time that she began volunteering at age 14 at Montefiore Hospital until now, Dr. Berkowitz has been serving humanity. Raised in Squirrel Hill and a graduate of Taylor Allderdice High School, Dr. Berkowitz, 73, is still caring for others, practicing geriatric and special-needs dentistry. She treats patients in private homes, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities and hospitals.
