What we know about aging:
“Our society is being reshaped by a rising demographic tide. Never have so many people lived into the later stages of their lives so healthy and so productively. In the United States, those born between 1946 and 1964—the “baby boomers”—are now growing older, and the first wave of this demographic phenomenon will reach age 65 in less than 15 years. At the crest of the aging of the baby boomers, 20 percent of the population of the United States will be 65 years old or older” AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION
Senior Life Skills Mentoring Group for pre-seniors ages 55 and older adjusting to later life changes. This group provides men and women 55 and over ongoing support. Life transitions often produce anxiety as well as a sense of loss and grief. The transition from pre-senior to senior status can be a difficult period. The group challenges older adults to pull themselves out of their loneliness, and hopelessness and join a vibrant, full of life group in order to enhance their lives. Seniors will learn new coping skills, accept life changes, meet new people, and share their experiences with others.
