Steps Towards a New Old Age

Original title: Pasos hacia una nueva vejez
Category: Non-Fiction
Synopsis:

The great social and emotional challenges of old age

Old age is one of the greatest challenges we face. We are living longer and having fewer children. Demographic change and the transformation of our lifestyles have increased the gap between generations, isolation and loneliness in a society in which old age is experienced very differently from how we previously did. Care plays a crucial and necessary role in this paradigm shift that brings with it major challenges and a new understanding of aging.

Can we ask young people to take care of their elders to the detriment of their own life project? Who will take care of us if we have no children or if they live far away? How will we occupy our free time? Based on questions such as these, the neuropsychologist Javier Yanguas brings into focus the magnitude of the challenge posed by the new old age, a stage that will condition our lives and the organization of our society.

 

A reflection on the challenges posed by old age from a psychological, emotional and social point of view.
