Synopsis: Hugh Downs, a man who has thoroughly researched issues affecting older adults, has good news for everyone entering the 50-plus generation. The news, as Downs relates in this uplifting, fact-filled volume, is that older adults now have more choices than ever before when they consider how they want to live, work, and play in the years to come. From health care to the selection of living arrangements, Fifty to Forever gives older adults the background they need to make their choices with confidence. No issue is too complex--or too simple--for Down's helpful advice.
From Booklist: Downs' brief essays, almost sound bites, hit upon many of the most significant issues of aging, from caring for elderly parents to planning for nursing-home care. He is very positive and thorough about evaluating the latter situations. The author's expertise comes, of course, from his own experience, as well as his years on the public television show Over Easy and currently on 20/20. Especially interesting are the personal insights into Downs' own childhood, family life, and multiple careers, all drawn upon to demonstrate the importance of keeping busy and in touch with family roots. Appended are addresses for health and governmental agencies as well as safety, nutrition, and fitness advice. Denise Perry Donavin
