Eileen Allen doesn't fit the stereotype of a 90-year-old woman. She's still trying new things, looking forward and making choices that give her the best life possible. She's happy, even with vision, hearing and mobility loss. I Like Being Old provides inspiration for the 78 million baby boomers on the threshold of old age as well as those already far into it. The reader looks over Eileen's shoulder as she tells how she's faced important decisions, such as: When to give up driving; When to move to a retirement center; How to stay fit and involved; How to adjust to decreasing independence. And as she describes adaptations she's made to enrich her life: Teaching herself to be more humorous; Memorizing poetry when loss of vision meant she could no longer read; Walking three miles around the lake across from her retirement center. . .with her walker. With Eileen as your guide, open yourself to the choices you continue to have, to finding satisfaction in solving the problems that increase with years, to discovering that you can keep learning, and to enjoying a slowed-down pace that lets you focus on new interests and new dimensions of yourself.
