We’ve been thinking recently about men aging and talking with friends about various aspects of the subject. We know we generally focus on ourselves in this forum, but thought we’d shift our lens for a moment for a wider view of our lives, and open the conversation for your thoughts.
Many women our age are widowed, but many still have men in their lives, or remember spouses, partners, fathers, brothers and friends.
Here are some questions that have been raised:
Do personalities prevail, or do they alter with the aging process?
Do men face different issues than women as they age?
How do men spend their time as physical changes effect them?
How do relationships shift in later years?
What issues do caregivers face?
We hope you’ll add more topics and share what you think.
What has been your experience? Okay to write anonymously if you want to write otherwise private thoughts.
We look forward to an interesting conversation.
