This book provides compelling evidence from a meticulous survey of 612 elderly people in the districts of Tiong Bahru, Bukit Merah and Henderson to debunk the myths surrounding ageing and old age - the myths of decrepitude, dependency and despondency. A wealth of data has been amassed on a wide range of issues, e.g., perception of old age, memory, sleep, health, alcohol consumption, activities of daily living, leisure pursuits, social network, the old-old, elderly men and women, etc.
