The New Elderhood - Louise Aronson, MD

The Not Old Better Show Author Interview Series

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show. I’m Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode #440. Today’s show is brought you by Skylight, makers of the Skylight Frame.

As part of our Art of Living, Author Interview series, we are joined today by Physician and award-winning author Louise Aronson. We will be speaking with Dr. Aronson about her revolutionary perspective on growing old in her new book, ELDERHOOD: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, Reimagining Life.

Dr. Aronson will share stories from her personal and professional life, and draws from history, science, literature, and popular culture, to offer a powerful roadmap for how we approach old age. Full of joy, wonder, frustration, and outrage, Aronson’s moving book offers hope about aging, medicine, and humanity itself, knowing that we may be ‘Elders’ for 40 years or longer, but old age needn’t be a disease to be denigrated and neglected.

That, of course, is our guest today, Dr. Louise Aronson, who urges us to re-examine the meaning of aging and to reframe our later decades to better prepare for and thrive in our final years. In speaking with us today, Dr. Aronson recounts vividly her conversations with doctors and laypeople, the aged and aging, their children and their children—anyone who will be old one day, which in theory, is all of us.

My thanks to Dr. Louise Aronson, joining us today to talk about Elderhood, the title of her new book, wherein she breaks down our preconceived ideas about aging and old age, diving deep into the counterproductive ways our medical system and societal attitudes shape life from age sixty forward. My thanks, as well, to today’s sponsor, Skylight, maker of the Skylight Frame, and my thanks always to you, my wonderful Not Old Better Show audience. Remember, stay safe everyone, practice smart social distancing, and Talk About Better. The Not Old Better Show. Thanks, everybody.
