ith the current advances in medicine and a greater awareness of fitness and nutrition, people are living decades longer than they were in previous generations. It is becoming common for people to live into their 90s and beyond. This brave new world has its upsides and its downsides. Having a long period of time after retirement gives us time to do many of the things we wanted to do when we were building careers and taking care of our homes and children. Now free time is available to travel, write, paint, go to the theater, join clubs, give back to the community by volunteering and list can continue. The downside, however is that many of our faculties diminish as we age. No matter how hard we exercise our bodies lose strength, our hearing and eyesight diminishes and we become
forgetful, sometimes as a result of normal aging and sometimes from more serious causes. Aging can be thought of as a continuum from being able to live on our own to needing various degrees of help. This continuum begins with independent living, then assisted living, and then total care. Not everyone goes through all three stages, and many elders are independent up into their nineties. But even with this group, often widowed, there can be isolation and loneliness that can cause anxiety and even depression. These people need friendship, community and things to keep their mind and bodies active. Aging nowadays is often something we face twice—with our parents and with ourselves. The sunset years are a good time but they can take a toll on families, especially when disabilities and memory challenges are added to the mix. The generation who is assisting their parents are often themselves
