Post-Polio Annual Wellness Retreat: Growing into your Wisdom (private event)

  • Post-Polio Annual Wellness Retreat Empire, CO (map)

We often view growing older as a negative thing but new information about our brains is pointing to the unique strengths and underestimated abilities of brains over the age of 40.  This session will debunk our myths about aging, explore the unique identity changes that come with getting older and build a framework for how our brains change for the better.  Real-life examples and audience participation will be used to illustrate the latest research on how we can grow into our wisdom.  Whether you are the child of someone who is getting older, a professional or informal caregiver, or someone who doesn’t feel their age, this session offers insights for rethinking and appreciating the power of our brains later in life.
