About the Book

Why do I worry about growing old? Am I the only one who feels invisible? What are the perks and pleasures of old age? How should I spend my last years, months, days as I grow old? Do other Elders experience discrimination because they are old? Can I really embrace a meaningful life during the waning years of my journey? Growing Old: What It’s All About offers an insider’s look at what aging—the good and the bad—is really like. The author shares her own story, research, and insights as well as the thoughts and feelings of 125 other Elders.
