Good morning family. The 10 years challenge is really a good time to reminisce over our lives even though some of us are not so into it. However, it’s a good place to start thinking about how we will be like in another 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 years from now and the right time to start preparing for your old age is now.

You may think it’s not necessary but it’s an established fact the world’s population is ageing, I can see that clearly around me but are we prepared forit in this part of the world (Nigeria)? There are so many problems confronting our older parents that if given an alternative of a better solution, we will most definitely jump at it.

My dad turned 88 yesterday and I was happy as he was happy about his day. He is a retired surgeon and his hands are still steady, he’s still very active due to deliberate decisions he made in his younger days. He wants to be 120years before signing out of the earth and as a daughter, I’ve learnt so much from him but much more as a Gerontologist, my knowledge in ageing has expanded. Myself and other facilitators will like to share this area of expertise at HOLD THE AGE Conference with everyone that is interested in making their old age an easy journey.

However, if you are not here in Nigeria, you can inform the people taking care of your older parents to attend as you all will be enlightened on solutions to make life easy in old age.

Old age is not a death sentence, invest in your old age by attending Hold the Age Investment Program.
