In brief: Interests

Continuing to be a productive person that contributes to society is important for successful aging.
Encourage the senior to continue with their interests or develop new ones. It is never too late to learn something new- take up an instrument, take college classes on line, volunteer in your community. There is always a way for one to give back and feel involved in a meaningful way.
