Love in Later Life
While issues of lifelong learning, civic engagement, and retirement are prominent in discussions of productive aging for Boomers, the emotional side of aging is often ignored, although often unintentionally. Last week’s New York Times featured an important and touching article entitled “Love in the Time of Dementia.” Although the article focuses on personal and intimate relationships as affected by dementia, it also features insights on how the dynamics of love relationships may change as we age.
While these topics may not be popular or easy to discuss, what resources are provided by your library concerning love and dating in later life? How have you seen emotional issues such as the ones addressed in the above article play out among your library patrons?
