Successful Aging The Franklirt County Office for the Aging in an effort to educate the general public will present a weekly column deal- ing with the aspects of aging. The column will be titled: Keys to Successful Aging and will be provided by Daniel P. Klebes, Jr., Services Specialist, Frank- lin County Office for the Aging. After 65 There are 25.5 million Amer- icans 65 years of age or older — at least one in every nine persons. How are they faring? Many are bored, helpless, unproduc- tive, forgotten, lost, listless, at loose ends, but many others are leading spirited lives, involved in varied activities, making new friends, thriving in their freedom and enjoying their \best years\. As a group, people over 65 are subject to many personal and environmental stresses — physical and mental impair- ment, loss of spouses and peers, lowered income, les- sened productivity. At least two out of three older persons are limited in their major activ- ity — working or keeping house —because of chronic ill-health. During the year they have about one chance in six of being hospitalized. As their range of personal relations nar- rows, along with loneliness elderly persons often expe- rience a ^ense of diminished social status, a sharp drop in self-esteem. These stresses may occur concurrently — a clustering of the maladies of aging. How people react depends on their personality pattern, on their capacity to compensate for and adapt to the current social environment, and on the avail- ability of supportive relation- ships and concrete social and health support. Certainly there are many older people who are well, con- tinue to be active, participate in community affairs, and hold full — or part-time jobs, but many others, though ambulatory, live in virtual seclusion. The phone rarely rings, no visitors or invi- tations arrive. There is no incentive to action, little moti- vation to stir. For those who are fragile, truly homebound life is a kind of solitary confine- ment, destructive to mental and physical health. The older person who ages most successfully is one who stays active. Health experts find that an older person is likely to stay healthy in both body and mind if encouraged to function to the fullest extent possible and to remain in con- tact with others. Next week: a look at some .ieeds of the elderly. If You Missed The Sidewalk Sale > Dont WORRY! We Are Continuing to offer our Bargins.
