You are asked to interview an older adult (age 60 or older) about his or her subjective experiences of growing older. These are two separate assignments. The objective of the interview is to give you the opportunity to learn first-hand from an adult about his or her individual experiences of having grown older. · Are you aware of your age? Do you feel (emotionally and/or physically) your chronological age? What makes or has made you aware that you have grown older? · When you were younger, did you ever think about what getting older would be like? Has it been better or worse than what you had expected? · What are some of the good things that have happened with getting older? · What are some of the challenges of getting older? · What are some of the surprising aspects of getting older? · What would you tell a young person about the years of adulthood or old age? · Is there any critical advice that you would want to give a young person? · What are you currently doing to improve your perspectives upon certain aspects of your life or the process of aging?
