This one hour webinar is a recording of Dr Gugliucci’s live presentation at the Ninth Annual University of Maine Geriatrics Colloquium held on May, 12, 2014 in Bangor, Maine.  This presentation will present the insights from older adults as they navigate through their lives.  According to poet May Sarton, old age is a foreign country and you must learn its language.  Navigating the aging process provides challenges, transitions, crises and wonders. In some ways we are who we always were, but it is who we are now and what we encounter during the aging process that matters.

- Describe the challenges and opportunities that older adults encounter.
