New Dimensions on Aging.
Randall, Ollie
This brief presentation discusses various problems older adults face. First, older adults are described, and old age is defined. Old age starts after 50, and older adults should not be considered as a homogeneous group; thay fall into many different categories which enrich rather than impoverish them as a group. The long experience they have had can contribute effectively to society; thus, they should not be isolated from people, but should be enlisted in volunteer programs to play a constructive role. The speaker urges government to provide inexpensive and varied types of housing and other sorely needed services for the older adults. The greatest priority for older adults, however, is the provision of opportunity to create a quality of life that is consonant with individual needs. (SE)
