According to Simon Tan, Psy.D., A.B.P.P., a clinical neuropsychologist at Stanford University Medical Center; some of the most common misconceptions about aging include the ideas that people of a certain age are rigid in their thinking, are losing their capacity for learning and are all similar simply because of their age.
As you know, these misconceptions are far from the truth!
No matter what your age, the human mind and body never loses its capacity to learn and adapt. While we may grow stronger in our commitment to beliefs and values, our openness to new ideas often increases as we know the value of collaboration and community.
With experience, openness and an ability to learn, comes great diversity. Dr. Tan describes that there is more variety and diversity among older adults than in any other age group. No wonder we created Defy Aging Solutions to bring light to the true possibilities aging holds for us all!
