Rural resilience

Author: admin

If you think silvers can’t be adaptable, think again. An interesting study by Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Australia conducted in the Blayney Shire area in New South Wales reveals that silvers are adept at getting around the limitations of a rural location. As website reports, older adults are more likely to find unique personal solutions instead of pushing for big-picture solutions to lack of public facilities like transport and specialist health services. What’s more, head researcher Dr Ann Lazarsfeld-Jensen observes that silvers have creatively applied their talents to generate income sources after retirement and to keep themselves occupied. The conclusion, according to the website: elderly rural folk share a deep connection with the land and their home, which then becomes a source of their resilience and bestows them with meaning and purpose.
