"Dr. Stephen Jones, director of Greenwich Hospital's Center for Healthy Aging, said many people misinterpret the meaning of aging."I think everyone associates aging with decline, that it's always a loss," he said. "And in some respects it is. That's the nature of life. People lose friends, relatives, they are not as active. But that doesn't mean their lives don't have a meaning. As we get older we can actually improve in other aspects. We become (more) knowledgeable, better read, better educated."
