AgeEsteem(R) to Focus on Growing Demographic of Older Adults
NEW YORK, and GENEVA, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- AgeEsteem(R), one of the world's pre-eminent organizations focused on aging and self-esteem, today launched a new web site and "how to" guidebook. The organization, based in Geneva, Switzerland, and New York, will utilize its revolutionary practices to assist seniors and people of every age with the latest techniques in enjoying life in "coming of age" in the 21st Century.
AgeEsteem(R) is founded by Bonnie Lou Fatio, a renown consultant and motivational speaker on issues related to aging. The web site is being launched in conjunction with the re-launch of Mrs. Fatio's book, AgeEsteem(R): Growing a Positive Attitude Towards Aging.
"By the year 2030, about one of every five Americans, or 20% of our population, will be over the age of 65," Bonnie Fatio noted. "If these older adults are not enjoying those years, a significant portion of the American population -- and spending power -- will be at risk. We must continue to develop the potential of our older adults and draw on their experience and expertise."
Time is on our side. Women who live to 65 years of age can expect to live to 85 years of age. Many Americans facing 60 will still have the opportunity to enjoy nearly one third of their lives.
Added Mrs. Fatio, "As we grow older, we should be embracing life. This is the mission of AgeEsteem(R) and we are proud to have helped so many through this important process. And when we consider that one out of every two girls born today can anticipate living to be 100 years old, we see the importance of AgeEsteem for ALL generations."
The General Secretary of the World YWCA, Nyaradzayi Gumbonzvanda, expressed excitement about the news: "Bonnie brings out the real essence of leadership as experiential, personal, relational and inter-generational. The times I have been blessed to be in Bonnie's presence, and the many times I have read her book Age-Esteem; I have been internally nurtured. I have been urged to exercise my leadership in a transformational way; recognizing that the personal is political. Bonnie speaks to each one of us directly. Take time to read her book Age-Esteem; or more so, seek opportunity to be in Bonnie's company! Her voice for ethical and shared leadership is what the world is searching for today."
AgeEsteem(R)'s newly designed web site and blog, www.AgeEsteem.com, will focus on issues core to AgeEsteem(R) clients:
