Painting a more accurate portrait of aging, Getting Wise About Getting Old, debunks myths and stereotypes. From retirement (seniors are low-performance workers) to housing (most older adults live in long-term care accommodation), and violence (senior women are not victims of sexual assault) to political participation (seniors are conservative and resistant to change) the editors deconstruct and counter with the latest findings. The work of two Quebec research groups, short chapters contribute to the readers understanding of both challenges and advantages, of our aging society.
