Abstract:

Awakening to Aging is a book for anyone who is on the journey of life. We all prepare for each journey of our lives and we need to prepare for our last great journey, aging and its destination, death. Informative, humorous, and moving, Awakening to Aging: Glimpsing the Gifts of Aging, courageously addresses the largest population ever to age, the Baby Boomers and their families. A collection of essays edited by Myrtle Heery, PhD and Gregg Richardson, PhD include a spectrum of aging topics: finances, health - including the changing brain, cancer and heart disease, choosing a home, caregiving, ethical wills, aging parents, and spirituality. Seventeen writers use their professional knowledge and moving personal stories of aging to offer hope, practical advice, and wisdom in this era of stressful role changes and uncertain health care. A timely book giving us gifts that come with awakening - choices, meanings, and explorations with humility to the mysteries of aging.
