Aging is the New Normal
From Jeff Layne on March 8th, 2017
Dr. Seema Sehrawat
Faculty, School of Social Work
Demographics are changing dramatically, in the U.S. and globally, as Baby Boomers (people born from approximately 1945-1964) retire and become “senior citizens.” As Dr. Sehrawat and Dr. Jones explain, again is not simply a story of higher numbers. “Boomers” are being transformative and breaking the social norm. They are not letting age define them, and they view “later life” as power years and a time of possibilities. The presenters emphasize that an aging society is about all ages.
