Stay Young Navigators: The Pursuit of Active Aging and Seniors Caring for Seniors explores an innovative approach to elder care created by elders themselves. Based on discussions with the younger old and the older old, Stay Young Navigators describes a community of care and support that is made up by seniors caring for other seniors.
Though aging is inevitable, the physical and mental suffering that often accompanies the aging process is not. Seniors can stay active, healthy, and socially and economically engaged throughout their entire lives, if the right structures and support are in place. Stay Young Navigators reframes the common perceptions of aging and demonstrates the clear benefits of keeping seniors actively engaged in their communities.
