2 Late Adulthood and End of Life Late adulthood is a time in which individual’s begin to accept life as a whole and reflect on this life in a positive manner as they near end of life. Late adulthood begins around age 65 and continues until death. As with any other stage of life, late adulthood has its own unique characteristics and developments. Late adulthood is often seen as a time of physical and mental decline; however, there are ways in which an individual can promote and maintain both physical and mental health. Society has created many stereotypes over the years, and late adulthood is no exception to this common occurrence. When an individual is judged or stereotyped based solely upon age, this is referred to as ageism (Berger, 2008). Unfortunately, ageism is quite prominent among the elderly. Another significant factor in late adulthood is mortality. During late adulthood issues of death and dying become much more evident as individuals begin to ponder their own transience. While death is a universal concept, varying cultural influences also play a role in individual outlooks on mortality. Late adulthood is essentially the final developmental stage in a human’s life. In a sense, late adulthood is the closing chapter of life. In this paper the subject to be examined includes factors that influence late adulthood as well as challenges that individual’s may face as they progress through the final stage of life.
