Publisher's Description

What We Miss When We Overvalue Youth

We’re so afraid of aging that we begin to devalue ourselves and others with each passing year. The phrase "30 years old" incites panic. Seniors live in separate communities and barely interact with young people, while middle-aged people spend millions each year on anti-aging products.

But what if we have it all wrong? Isabel Tom grew up living with grandparents and has spent over a decade of her career in end-of-life care. In The Value of Wrinkles she:

  • Teaches you what the elderly offer us that we cannot live without
  • Challenges our cultural beliefs and practices that affect those who are aging
  • Gives you practical insight on how to care for those older than you

Plus, the book includes a section written by senior citizens entitled, "I Wish You Knew . . .". Age isn’t a curse, and the elderly among us deserve better. Will you be a part of the change?
