Denver Public Library offers multiple services and programs for older adults, ranging from financial planning assistance and mindfulness programs to special programs for LGBTQ+ Older Adults. The “Embrace Aging!” blog is curated by Amy DelPo, Manager of Older Adult Services.
“Embrace Aging!” was the title of the April 2022 blog, in which DelPo discusses her approach to aging and older adult programming. She references psychiatrist Carl Jung and psychologist Gene Cohen, whose work influenced general understanding of aging, in particular older adults’ creative potential and capacity to experience aging as a positive experience.
“Jung and Cohen did not ignore the difficult realities of aging, but they implored us to put those realities into context and see them as only part of a complicated and often beautiful experience”.
