A study carried out by the University of Massachusetts Amherst, has found that elderly people have more calming positive emotions than their younger counterparts.
University study leader Rebecca Ready said: “Older adults report feeling more serenity than younger persons. They also have a richer concept of what it means to feel serene than younger persons.”
PHC Home Care comment:
We have always known that elderly people can bring balance and the benefit of life experience to younger generations. This study highlights yet another positive aspect of growing old that should be welcomed and learnt from by people of all ages.
