We all get old- if we're lucky. But all too often it seems those who grow old are the unlucky ones. For some of our senior citizens, the declining years can be fraught with sadness and isolation. Happily, many elderly people continue to have active and busy lives by working, attending college classes and engaging in a variety of other activities.
