Habits such as regular exercise are well known to be linked to better health in older adults. Far less is understood about behaviors that contribute to the optimally aging mind. This may be a reason why only about 25% of elders meet the standards for optimal cognitive aging. The Aging Intellect describes more than a dozen specific characteristics that distinguish older people who remain cognitively vigorous from the majority who are aging normally or are at risk for cognitive impairment. In addition, this book provides professionals with evidence-based recommendations that can help their aging patients and clients minimize the effects of predictable cognitive changes and more fully use their mental abilities. The Aging Intellect is also written for people of all ages interested in maximizing their cognitive vigor. Dr. Powell has encouraging words for those who know they are not aging optimally, but are willing to modify one or two habits that can improve their mental powers. Richly illustrated with clinical examples and case studies, The Aging Intellect includes topics rarely discussed in book form. specifies lifestyle habits and attitudes linked to three levels of cognitive aging: optimal, normal, and at risk for cognitive impairment describes evidence based strategies that minimize mental decline warns of normal cognitive changes that increase the chances of elders making poor financial decisions identifies intellectual qualities that strengthen with age.

Elderlearning examines the important role of learning in older people's health, quality of life, longevity and opportunity to take on new roles in society. The book includes the results of the first comprehensive survey of men and women over the age of 55 on the topic of adult learning. It provides data on the sources, topics and extent of the current learning activities of older adults, as well as on their preferred learning modes. Authors Lamdin and Fugate address the topic of adult learning from the perspective of providers of learning services, as well as from the viewpoint of individual learners. This book is based on extensive interviews with elderlearners across the country and should be a valuable aid to anyone involved in developing - or teaching - programmes designed to meet the needs of older adults. It should also serve as a source of information for elderlearners themselves.
