When I Am 90 Reflection
Think about yourself as an older adult and what your life will be like when you are 90 years of age. Each of the 5 sections below should only have a maximum of one paragraph written. You may be creative and write this as a journal entry or as a letter to one of your family members or friends, or just simply as a narrative. Write about what your life will be like in the following areas:
1) Physical: Discuss your five senses and which of them will have been impacted by aging and to what degree. Will you be able to communicate verbally or have to rely on non-verbal means of communication (i.e., due to stroke, etc.)
a. What kind of family and personal situation will you have when you are older? Will you be married? Single? Have a significant partner?
b. What type of living situation will you be in? Will you be living with one of your children, on your own or with other old adults?
c. Will you have any hobbies (this may depend on your sensory impairment)?
d. Where will you go when/if you go out?
3) Financial: What will your finances be like when you are older? Discuss based on how you handle money currently in your life. Are you a saver or a spender? Will you have retirement or just have to rely on Social Security.
4) Emotional/Mental: What kind of person will you be? Research shows that our personalities do not change significantly as we age, but may become magnified as a result of loss, change, stress, and illness. For example, if you now become irate fairly easily in traffic, what will you be like in an assisted living dining room waiting for your food when you are 90? What will you do to entertain yourself mentally?
5) Legacy: Since you are 90, you are thinking about what you will leave behind, both in terms of tangible items and intangible qualities.
a. What will you be known for?
b. What will you have left to those who cared for you or to society at large?
