Summary "This book offers good news about ageing in Singapore and not just the grim statistics of elderly people. From a meticulous survey of 612 elderly people in the districts of Tiong Bahru, Bukit Merah and Henderson, a wealth of data has been amassed. The questionnaire encompassed a wide range of issues, eg. perception of old age, memory, sleep, health, alcohol consumption, activities of daily living, leisure pursuits, social network, the old-old, elderly men and women, etc and from the information gathered, there is compelling evidence to debunk the myths surrounding ageing and old age - the myths of decrepitude, dependency and despondency."--Jacket
