Overview

"We live in a world of accelerating change and one of the most significant changes is human longevity. This has an impact not only on the length of our lives but also on the quality of those years as well. Unfortunately, little is done to educate people when they are young — from elementary school on - as to what they should expect. Gerald Larue's book shows that something can be done — indeed, is being done — that could serve as a guide to all school systems in addressing this need. It is critical, because our health, economic security and happiness in later years are highly dependent on the choices we make and actions we taken when younger. The volunteer experience described in this book also shows us how to take into the years of wisdom and experience of older people to make the educational experience very real and enjoyable. I highly recommend NURTURING RESPECT to all interested in shaping a better quality of life for all." — Horace Deets, Former Executive Director of AARP, Research Fellow to Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Age Lab, Visiting Research Fellow at Oxford University's Institute of Ageing, and Chair of the Board of Help Age International, and Board Member of National Council of La Raza
