Expectations For Ageing
What do people you know from different life stages envision for themselves as they grow older? What are their goals? What steps have they taken to helping make these goals possible?
Interview some of your friends and family at different life stages. (20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, etc). Discuss how they envision living their lives when they are 70, when they are 80. Are there examples of people they would like to be like when they age? What can they do now to help them be able to live the way they envision? Do they feel their aspirations are attainable? For people with ageing parents, did they ever expect to become family caregivers? Would they want their children to care for them as they age?
