Senior Moments

Welcome to Senior Moments, a blog that looks at aging through the eyes of someone who is experiencing this life change first hand. We’re all living longer and for many of us this provides both opportunities and challenges. However, as the world has never before seen such an explosion of older people, we don’t have much past experiences or traditions to draw on. In many ways, being an “over-60” in today’s world is very different from what it meant in our parents’ or grandparents’ days. In any case, there is no one overarching meaning of what it is to be an “over-60” these days.
 
As the world continues to change around us, society’s perception of aging and our own ideas of what it means to get older are also adjusting to suit the modern reality. Traditionally, aging was thought to be something that we did ‘gracefully’ and there was an idealistic image of older people fading away happily into the distance. However, these days nothing could be further from the truth!
 
As we continue to live longer, there are more and more older people in society with less and less younger people to look after them. In addition, many older people would take great offence in being “looked after” – we see ourselves as independent, self-sufficient and able and willing to put into society as much as we take out.
 
This is not to say that aging is not without its challenges. Many older people have to deal with health issues, loneliness and a loss of self-worth.
 
This blog aims to provide a forum for exploring the opportunities and challenges we face as we age, and to provide some real-life advice and solutions to the problems we may encounter. We hope you find the blog interesting, thought-provoking and inspiring. See you soon!
