From the Paper:"Recent advances in the field of medicine make it possible to live longer than ever before. While a longer life provides the opportunity for seniors to do things that they put on hold while raising families and working, it can also create a feeling of isolation and loneliness. Depression has been reported to be a common problem among the elderly as well as not eating correctly and other issues that occur when a person removes himself from society. The center for national statistics on suicide reports that the age bracket with the highest suicide rate is the group of 85 plus years old(Suicide http://www.tspn.org/facts.htm). To combat these and other problems associated with aging it is important for an elderly person to remain active. Whether it is through club membership, senior center activities or volunteering their time, the elderly should continue an active lifestyle as long as they are physically and mentally able to do so.
