We're so afraid of aging that we begin to devalue ourselves and others with each passing year. The phrase "thirty 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 working professionally with older adults. In her book, she:
- teaches you what the elderly offer us that we cannot live without
- challenges our cultural beliefs and practices that affect the aging
- gives you practical insight on how to care for those older than you
