Motivation for Purposeful Living in Older People

By LeRoy P. Levitt

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1964

The author discusses some of the basic factors influencing older people to maintain and extend purposeful and useful living and interpersonal relationships after retirement. He describes how in the next decade, the aging population will represent the greatest number of people having the greatest measure of the greatest freedom. They will represent a great reservoir of creative potential. He argues that there is a major need for older people, retired or not, to understand better the maturing and aging process. He states that we need to make available information and help to the group approaching and in retirement and that we need to deepen general public education about aging.
