Ira Rosofsky, Ph.D., is a psychologist in Connecticut who works in eldercare facilities and the author of Nasty, Brutish, and Long: Adventures in Old Age and the World of Eldercare.
Adventures in Old Age draws upon my wide experience as a psychologist in eldercare and my personal experience as a caregiver to my own elderly parents. Before I was a psychologist I studied philosophy, and have wide-ranging interests. In my blog, there are posts about aging issues, but you are just as likely to find health care public policy, pop culture, media, politics, literary analysis, and the horse called Clever Hans. Everything is grist for the mill. As soon as we are born, we are aging.
