Tips for enjoying life in your Golden Years

Mental health in the golden years will be the topic of a special Bond Talks session next Monday, December 3, 2012 at Bond University.

Presented by Director of the Bond University Psychology Clinic, Dr Deborah Wilmoth, the presentation will help the audience identify possible mental health problems they may face later in life.

Dr Wilmoth explains that although most people age without considerable difficulties, some people do experience substantial challenges in their golden years.

“There are a number of health challenges, both mental and physical that people experience later in life, which can include things like memory problems or how to deal with the loss of a loved one,” said Dr Wilmoth.

“I will share with the audience some key aspects of aging, including memory function and problem solving methods and skills; as well as how people’s social interactions alter in the golden years and how to implement healthy habits and social activity into a daily routine.

“As we approach the festive season, it is more important than ever to ensure that all sectors of the community are valued and are aware of social engagements, especially the aging population who may be living alone or far away from family,” said Dr Wilmoth. D

Dr Wilmoth, formerly a Director for the Australian Psychological Society and Chair of the National College of Clinical Psychologists, is a registered psychologist in clinical and forensic psychology. She has over 30 years of professional experience in the mental health area and has been recognized as a Fellow in the Australian Psychological Society.
