Description

Where did the rocking chairs go? The chairs that the wise elders used to sit on in the twilight of their lives. They're gone. Every person in their 80's, 90's and 100's, whether living in assisted care, memory care, upscale retirement community, or living in their own home, are no longer rocking their lives away. You see ads for retirement communities featuring swimming pools, paddle tennis, activities, parties, excursions, meditation, exercise classes, poetry classes, ipad classes, genealogy, computer courses- you name it and older people are doing it! Not in a little way, but in a big way. In an article in the New York Times, we -- the people who are in our 80's, 90's and 100's -- are the largest segment of the population and the largest growing group. This book will give you an insight into how the voices of experience look, dress and what they are doing with their precious time. Certainly not sitting in a rocking chair. All proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Buck Institute for Research on Aging.show more
