Positive Ageing is about consciously facing up to the challenges of later life. We believe that by doing this we can improve our chances of having a successful and fulfilling later life.
Life expectancy has increased so much in recent years that most people can look forward to twenty or thirty years of life after retirement. At Positive Ageing we believe that we can benefit greatly by taking some time to look at our attitudes towards our ageing and our plans for this new period of our lives.
Getting older has a very ‘bad press’, and most people would rather not think about ageing. We believe that we can benefit by doing the opposite – by facing up to the reality of our ageing. By doing this we can begin to see the new possibilities that this phase in our life can bring.
There will be challenges, but we believe that there are a number of personal development techniques which can help us all develop more resilience and strengthen our sense of choice and control.
We have distilled much of our approach into a well researched and practical handbook for personal change in later life, entitled “How to age positively“. It contains a clear and concise programme that is designed to improve the likelihood of living a happy and satisfying life in old age.
The courses we offer will help you to explore the issues, with others in a supportive and creative environment. You will learn some techniques for improving your emotional and psychological experience of later life, including:-
- learning how to gain a new perspective on your own ageing process
- exploring the techniques for cultivating a positive approach to the future
- enhancing your emotional resilience to some of the potential challenges of later life
Positive Ageing is designed for those on the threshold of this transition into later life, typically the 50 – 70 year olds.
