Why are we so on fire about about designing ageless minds? It all comes down to our story, which is personal but not uncommon. In the mid-1990’s, my mother developed dementia and came to live with us so that she could be taken care of in the family. I was her eldest child, in my mid-50’s. Our children were in their 20’s. Mom had been a homemaker most of her married life. It was typical of the times I grew up in. I don’t think anybody had ever asked her what she wanted out of life. When she was living with us, I still didn’t ask her what she wanted. I was too busy taking her to doctors, finding outside help to keep her safe when I was working, and helping us all adjust to a home that was no longer an empty nest.
I'm excited about exploring ways to "Ageucate" at every stage of life! Aging well is a universal life skill that does not get talked about nearly enough. The pitfalls AND the joys!
