Models of resilient aging focus on later life as a time of both losses and gains, a time of using lessons of long life to manage losses, a time to make the most of gains, a time of passing on lessons.  Resilience grows by shaping a meaningful life through creative learning and arts, building social connections, and continuing contributions to family and community.  These activities counter the social isolation and loneliness that threaten quality of life for so many older adults.
