Aging – the worst of times or the best of times?
The Centre on Aging is hosting a free six-week community program, to help individuals reimagine their own aging. The online program will take place every Tuesday at 3:00 p.m., beginning on January 24, 2023 and will run until February 28, 2023. Online meetings will be about 90 minutes, and will include opportunities for learning, discussion, and activities.
We live in a very youth-oriented society. People are constantly bombarded by messages that celebrate youth and are negative about aging and older people. This program will help you reimagine your own aging and discover your own value in older adulthood. This program hopes to provide you with an opportunity to learn and discuss these negative messages about aging, how they might affect you or others, and how you might challenge them. We hope that your participation in this program will result in positive changes in how you think about your own aging and aging in general.
This program is only open to people who live in Canada.
Registration will be open until January 18, 2023.
