Seniors live in separate communities and barely interact with young people, while middle-aged people spend millions each year on anti-aging products.But what if we have it all wrong? Isabel Tom grew up living with grandparents and has spent over a decade of her career serving older adults. In The Value of Wrinkles she: Teaches you what the elderly offer us that we cannot live withoutChallenges our cultural beliefs and practices that affect those who are agingGives you practical insight on how to care for those older than youReviewPraise for The Value of Wrinkles?Aging is challenging. As the number of candles on my birthday cake increases to the size of a bonfire, and the woman I see in the mirror reflects my advancing years, I hope to be treated with the respect Isabel Tom gives her aging charges. The Value of Wrinkles is an encouraging look at how we can honor and respect those who are in the final third of their lives. Her stories of Mama and YeYe are heartwarming and real.

A delight to read and a must for everyone.?-SHAHID AZIZ, MD, FAAPAuthor, Courageous Conversations on Dying: The Gift of Palliative Care?Sometimes we have to admit to ourselves we don?t know everything. And this is especially true with aging since most of us haven?t gotten there yet.
