Ralph Milton has written a new book entitled Well Aged. He wrote it for what he calls the “old-old”, or the folks who are 80+ above. Ralph himself is 87, and found after he and Bev moved to assisted living, that an awful lot of folks were living without much purpose or joy in their life.
From the back of the book “Well Aged offers a candid, useful, and entertaining insider’s take on life among the old-old. Not the recently retired who are enjoying Arizona winters and unlimited golf, but those in their last years, usually in the 80-100-year-old bracket. This book is a lively and candid look at what it’s really like to be old, written by someone living the experience, and sprinkled liberally with humor. Topics include Identity and independence; Choosing where to live; Personal health needs and priorities; Community support, friendships, and recreation; Spirituality and religion; Intimacy, companionship, and sexuality; Loneliness, depression, and frailty; and Leaving a legacy and end-of-life arrangements.”
The book is published by Douglas and McIntrye, and can be ordered through Chapters or Amazon. $24.95
