The Age of Senescence

Exploring Global Innovations Redefining Our Ageing Choices

Senescence is pronounced ‘Sin-es-ens” and is derived from the Latin word 'senex' that simply means old or ageing.  

A note from the Founder...

Welcome! The Age of Senescence is the new blog site launched July 2016.  It was created as a launchpad to showcase global innovation and latest research in elder care that purports to redefine the status quo of aged care as we see it.   For example, I'm currently writing about the relationship between Alzheimer's Disease and Insulin.

 

Inspired by people who have had the courage to change the way we perceive ageing, I will develop this site to house global and impressive 'change agents' in one spot; seeking to inspire more people to join the ranks of those enthusiastic and dedicated to creating a progressive elder care society.  

 

 

So I invite you to contact or connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn, about your change idea and send me your article about elder care innovation, and I’ll post it right here, on TheAgeOfSenescence.com
