As we age, we all begin to have physical difficulties to contend with. In No Spring Chicken, Francine Falk-Allen--a polio survivor who knows a thing or two about living with a disability--offers her own take on how to navigate the complications aging brings with equanimity (and a sense of humor). The handbook is divided into three sections: Part I is a jaunt through accessible travel pleasures and pitfalls in several parts of the world; Part II addresses the adaptation people who love a handicapped or aging person could make in order to have a lighter, more mutually rewarding relationship with him or her, as well as advice for physically challenged and aging persons themselves regarding self-care, exercise, pain management, healthcare, and more; and Part III discusses the challenges, rewards and logistics of engaging with groups of people who share similar issues. Accessible and wryly funny, No Spring Chicken is a fun and informative guide to living your best and longest life--whatever your physical challenges, and whatever your age.
