About The Newsletter
Thanks so much for your interest.
Aging Well is a newsletter that helps you age well despite your life circumstances. Circumstances that include planning for the future, taking on the role of caregiver, or dealing with a chronic disease.
Typically, articles you read about aging focus on exercise, managing illnesses, or the six dimensions of wellness. All of which is sound advice.
The newsletter proposes that additional factors and circumstances play a role and must be considered. Factors such as underlying beliefs and perceptions that impact choices and decisions. Situations such as taking care of a loved one, experiencing chronic disease, or dealing with the challenges of a changing world.
In Aging Well News, we look at unhelpful beliefs and habits, encourage accepting what is true now, and provide tips for managing various practical issues that arise.
This approach will take “emotional labor”- honestly looking at the less identified underlying demands of aging well. Whether you want to take that journey or not is your choice. But you will have the tools to do so if you choose.
Are you up for the challenge? Then I offer you this free subscription filled with helpful ideas and tips for you to age well.
About The Author
I am an 83-year-old woman who lives in a cozy apartment in Northern California with her two rescue cats, Bailey and Bella. I have a Ph.D. in Psychology and am a licensed mental health professional with years of experience. When my husband of 60 years was diagnosed with dementia, I began looking for ways to manage this challenging situation and still age well.
We raised two children and two grandsons, moved across the country, and made a good life for ourselves – we were a team during our marriage. Then I was his primary care provider until he moved into a memory care facility. While there, he contracted COVID-19 and died.
During that time and now, I must dig deep within myself and make changes as I age well - on my own.
I decided to share my journey and help others age well – no matter what in my book Aging Well - 30 Lessons for Making the Most of Your Later Years. The Aging Well Newsletter is a supplement to the book.
