About the event
I’m Positive, I’m Aging
What is the secret to successful aging?
Believe it or not it has less to do with income, being free from illnesses, or a life free from disappointments. Studies have shown that successful aging has more to do with being optimistic, maintaining friendships, and choosing to live a healthy lifestyle, among other things. This session includes research related to positive aging, as well as a discussion on ageisms and how negative age-related stereotypes can contribute to prejudices and even discrimination.
Memorial Hospital in Chester, IL is offering a new enrichment program series from the University of Illinois Extension’s Family Life Programs. These monthly scheduled programs, open to all adults, will be light, uplifting, and cover a variety of topics from finding the value of humor, clearing the clutter, finding your get up and go, and focusing on moments that matter in life.
