Overview

Some years back, I started to think about writing a piece on "Aging Gracefully" and avoiding the hang-ups and no-good doers who seemed to be out there giving a large assist to the growing population of grey-haired adults marching down the path of diminishing capacities associated with aging, when a friend of mine asked for for advice. "How can this be?" she moaned, "I can't seem to remember things, I don't know where I put things, I am really worried: Is this the scourge of old age creeping up on me?"...This book is the answer to my short, sharp "No, " I definitely do not think you are losing it,"

The questions becomes more paramount as the "Silver Generation" (a term I much prefer) enters into a world where the miracles of science, medicine and technology promise a life span never before seen in this age group -- well into their 80's and 90's or more: -- and health as well! This book explores how to chart your own course, past panic and past outmoded social attitudes, cast off the nonsense and hogwash -and become a part of the a newly emerging Silver Generation of the 21st Century

Divided into two parts, Part I deals with the world as we know it and exorcizes prevalent attitudes that attempt to keep those ''entering that age" anxious, panicked and planning for the inevitable; instead of planning for a life. Part II moves on to the wonderful new world awaiting.explores strengths, suggests treasure hunts along old and new pathways, presents a new paradigm, explores a Personal Retrieval System --within the self. Aging with Dignity, Integrity & Spunk Intact can become the norm for those of The Silver Generation who rare willing toeach for it, and a willing, also, to Age Defiantly!
