Today’s post shares in detail the the story of two extraordinary people who made major contributions to our world later in their lives.

          One of the fascinating things about people in the arts–visual artists, musicians, dancers, and others–is that many of them are productive in the arts well into their 80s, 90s and beyond. And people who take up the arts in their later years also continue to be active and healthy members of society. Today’s post is an “oldie but goody” from Art News of a few years ago. It’s an inspiring glimpse at artists who keep on getting better year after year.

Dementia Rates Are Falling. – ChangingAging

***Creative Aging Series: Dementia Rates Down***

Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well

Courtesy of Growing Bolder

          The title of today’s post needs to be on the front page of every newspaper in bold italics…getting people to understand this in the midst of outrageous exaggerations and scare tactics used by researchers and organizations dependent on “dementia dollars” is almost impossible. Of course we need better research, better ways of diagnosing the various types of dementia, and better care for those with dementia. But the current support for developing paranoia about dementia has to stop. Kudos to Changing Aging for this essay.
