Aging in the 21st Century

A NEW CLASS AT GREENWOOD SENIOR CENTER

Gazebo | ©2013 HouseofHank.me

How is aging different in the 21st century – and what can we do about it?

What does it mean to be “retired” for up to 30 years? What do instant news, science advances, enormous amounts of information, and a volunteer force of literally millions have to do with it? What are our needs as we age now? We’ll start with a look back at the 20th century, discuss questions like these, and talk about what we want for our aging in the 21st century. Come to learn new perspectives, enjoy discussion, and think about our role in all this. (If you were at the spring ”History of Aging” class, you’ll enjoy this as a follow-up – but you don’t need that prior class to enjoy this new one!)

No fee, pre-registration suggested: 206-297-0875.
