Published by RowmanLittlefield
Thirty-five million Americans are living beyond the age of sixty-five, a twenty-five year increase in life expectancy since 1900. This longevity, once the gift of a few, has become the destiny of many. This time of life is not just about retiring; in fact many who retire return happily to some type of employment. It is a new stage of life filled with its own unique challenges and opportunities. Co-authors Jane and Peggy Thayer, a mother-daughter team of psychologists, have named this stage of life, 'elderescence.'
