In the book, The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who've Lived the Longest (2008, National Geographic Press), author Dan Buettner investigates the common attributes of the fastest-growing segment of the population worldwide, those over 100 years of age. From the Web site www.bluezones.com, there are 9 characteristics shared by all these centenarians:
As we work with the geriatric population, we need to consider these qualities. Is there any way, through our intervention, that we can promote the vitality of the clients we serve. Looking beyond the individual's disability, how can we best affect the person's quality of life through our speech-language pathology and audiology services? And, should we all challenge ourselves to live with a healthy work-life balance so that we can be the best help to our clients … I, for one, hope to live in the Blue Zone.
