Picking up a brand-new, creative skill, like making music, is one of the more enjoyable approaches to lifelong learning. But can encouraging elders to join a community choir save money on healthcare? Does brain plasticity mean we can rebuild brains damaged by poor lifestyle choices? What about recreation in the form of intense physical exercise—how important is physicality to healthy aging? Land here for the latest research and answers you’ll need to help your clients enrich their Third Age.

The Summer of Love: From Fantasy to Fallout

posted 08.11.2017

By W. Andrew Achenbaum

The Summer of Love’s epicenter (1967) was the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, a 25-square­block district of San Francisco. The neighborhood’s Victorian houses, originally built for Irish workers, were in 1967 rented to students and musicians (such as guitarist Jerry Garcia, his wife, and his band, The Grateful Dead) for $25 a month. That year, about 100,000 youth traveled to Haight-Ashbury from the United States and abroad.
