  1. NEW! Growth: A Senior's Perspective
  2. Redefining Aging

NEW! Growth: A Senior's Perspective

Successful growth in young adulthood is measured in visible, tangible moments such as our increasing our height, winning sports trophies, earning degrees and promotions, large houses, cars, and family sizes, etc.   Once we age and retire, our focus shifts and we seek to minimize loss and gain continuity.  In contrast to our earlier years, our growth is internal, emotional, and very personal.   

Without the visible signs of improvement, we can feel like we are alone in the ageing process, maybe even failing in the choices we make, which can foster doubt and insecurity.  This series will introduce you to several professionals who work in senior services who, through their experiences, will share stories to help you gain confidence as you navigate your future. Hosted through Zoom.
