Growing older is a challenge, especially for those of us who live in a youth-oriented culture. As this book points out, as we age, we face losses: losing a job, losing loved ones, facing health challenges, and the realities of financial crises. What we often fail to do as we grow older is to take stock of the experience and wisdom that the years we have lived enable us to give to others in turn. By the same token, younger generations often fail to take advantage of the opportunities to learn from the wisdom of the older generation. Rabbi Friedman fills her book with her own learnings from a career working with aging adults. This book is infused with a spiritual approach to looking at aging, whether the reader is an older adult or a practitioner whose work includes working with aging adults. Throughout the book, the author suggests creative exercises and practices to help us to appreciate this stage in the human life journey. She writes with great sensitivity and insight. Highly recommended for anyone 55 and up and for professionals whose work brings them into contact with older adults. Appendix, notes, suggested further readings.
