Hoagies' Blog Hop: Gifted Elders

Gifted Elder Issues. Sometimes called the "sandwich generation," gifted adults often find themselves dealing with their gifted kids' issues on one hand, and their gifted parents' issues on the other... eldercare, retirement communities, and lots more. Or perhaps you *are* a Gifted Elder, dealing with medical, residential, and other issues facing gifted elders? How do you deal with Gifted Elder Issues? What unique options are available to you?

Don't miss our previous Blog Hops on related topics, including Multipotentiality and Summer Reading.

Gifted Elder Issues? Iím not that old! by Carolyn K., Hoagies' Nibbles and Bits
This monthís topic for Hoagiesí Gifted Blog Hop is Gifted Elder Issues, and I wasnít going to join the hop. Seriously, Iím not old. Yes, at the local diner Iíll be old enough to dine from the ďseniorsĒ menu at my next birthday, but thatís a whole YEAR from now!

So why are you reading my post?...
The Daddy-Daughter Mindful Listening League by Jessie in CounterNarration
Sincere attention is often the greatest gift you can give a person, and that's doubly true when that person has intellectual OE.  We know that's true for gifted children, but many gifted adults still long to share their inner worlds, too.  Unfortunately, their fellow intellectually overexcitable adults may not be naturally gifted in the listening department--and that has implications for gifted families.  The good news is that we can still grow as adults if we set our minds to it...
Itís Never Too Late To Be Your Gifted Self ó Part Two by Paula Prober, Your Rainforest Mind
A 35-year-old client told me that she thought it was too late for her to find a fulfilling career and a meaningful life.
I tried to control my facial expression.
I tried not to laugh.
I'm here to tell all of you 20-30-40-50-60-70-80+ somethings, that it's never too late. Never. Too. Late.
I can say this because...
Retirement & the Gifted Soul by Heather, The Fringy Bit
My dad died 5 years ago at way too young of an age. I wish I could say he enjoyed his early retirement in the years leading up to his death. But he, like many gifted older adults I know, didnít necessarily choose retirement. I think he would have been much like my mom is today, still working through the indefinite future. His body had other ideas and there came a time when he simply was forced to retire. My dad threw everything he had and all his intensity into his work...
The elder I want to be by Jen Merrill, Laughing at Chaos
I started thinking about the kind of gifted woman I wanted to be as I ease into my later years. Wise old crone came to mind. Full of things like wisdom, and peace with oneself, and the ability to give back to the world. So I decided to put together a list of things I would like to have in my life and things I would need to do to become that wise old crone, that gifted elder...
Gifted Elders ~ Resilience by Joy Navan, ongiftedelders
Previous posts addressed reverence, gratitude, and other Be-Attitudes of gifted elders. In this post, I chose to deliberate a crucial construct and posture that enhances the lives of gifted eldersĖresilience. Resilience is the ability to bounce back in the face of difficulties. Picture a rubber band in its resting state. That can be a metaphor for the gifted elder...
What I Hope to Say When I am a Gifted Elder: My Presentation to Teaching Program Graduates in the Year 2070 by Kathleen Casper in One World Gifted
Please gather 'round, dearies, as I spin you a tale- a tale of when I was a younger educator.

You have a different world in many ways now, in this year, 2070. But, when I was a teacher and an administrator in the schools during the early 2000's, education for gifted children, who were like many of the kids you will be teaching when you exit this teaching program, was much different...
