Celebrating Older American’s Month
In honor of #OlderAmericansMonth, I asked two of my favorite older adults for their wisdom and tips for aging well. At 101 years young, Jim stated “keep active- both physically and mentally!” Lucy, at almost 97, agreed and added “keep walking”. She also stated that she “had thought that being older/retired meant sitting in a rocking chair, and that’s not for me!” Both of them kept busy after retirement, volunteering for many years up until the pandemic. They both emphasized the importance of companionship and spending time with loved ones too. Good advice for #AgingUnbound! They are pictured here working on their puzzle (which Jim does upside down for an added challenge).
