What we miss out on when we overvalue youth
We’re so afraid of aging that we begin to devalue ourselves and others with each passing year. The phrase 30 years old incites panic. Seniors live in separate communities with little interaction with young people, and middle-aged people spend millions each year on anti-aging products.
But what if we have it all wrong? Isabel Tom grew up living with grandparents and has spent over a decade of her career in end-of-life care. Today she:
*teaches you what the elderly offer us that we cannot live without
*challenges our cultural beliefs and practices that affect those who are aging
*gives you practical insight on how to care for those older than you
Plus, the book includes a section written from senior citizens entitled, I Wish You Knew . . . Age isn’t a curse, and the elderly among us deserve better. Will you be a part of the change?
