Older Adults: ''Don't Give Up"

Abstract

Age should not become an excuse to spectate rather than participate. Older adults can enjoy their favorite activities as long as they are able, and then they should ease up rather than give up.

That, in a nutshell, is the philosophy behind a quarterly newsletter for the "chronologically gifted" reader called Looking Forward. The publication does not label or talk down to people over 50, and the information is easy-to-understand and reliable.

Recent articles reaffirmed reader's sense of pride in a society that idolizes youth, urged women to get mammograms regularly, and gave information about dental implants and how to find the time to exercise.
