So who is this program for? This program can be adapted and made fun for people of all ages and professions. For adolescents and young adults, this is a powerful lesson that can follow an age simulation as it reinforces healthy behaviors and lifestyles over time to live longer and healthier lives. Middle aged adults may resonate with the information because they are today’s primary caregivers to aging parents. Middle aged adults are also facing increasing changes and challenges associated with their own aging process. Older adults will benefit because it is never too late to adapt healthy lifestyle behaviors. Groups of different generations may provide for some powerful discussion.

Aging in an inevitable and unavoidable process that affects each and every one uniquely. Aging brings on many changes as a person develops throughout the lifespan. The way in which you take care of yourself through the years both physically and mentally will impact the way in which you age. Many of our lifestyle behaviors and choices are integrated, thus there is a strong association between healthy lifestyles, prevention and longevity. No one knows this better than centenarians, people who are 100 years old and older. America’s population of centenarians is the largest in the world and the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population. Today, approximately 70,000 Americans are 100+ years old. This number is expected to rise to 600,000 by 2050 (U.S. Census Bureau, 2011).

Centenarian studies demonstrate that life does not diminish with aging. In fact, 100 year olds are teaching us that the acceptance of aging can be a positive, joyful, and exciting experience. Today’s elders share their knowledge and wisdom to help us better engineer a positive approach to the aging process (Buettner, 2008; Reuters, 2007).

Keys to Embracing Aging is an interactive program that highlights 12 keys aimed at helping you to grow old gracefully, successfully, and with increased longevity, based primarily on findings from centenarian studies and the advice from those who participated. Keys to Embracing Aging will influence attitude, nutrition, physical activity, brain health, social activity, technology, safety, medical literacy, stress management, financial security, sleep, and taking time for yourself.
