Early this year, I spent a week visiting my mother in a supported living facility. I lived there, sleeping on a cot in her room and taking meals with her in the communal dining room. The staff have established a culture of respectful “just-enough” caring. They help when help is needed, and let people manage on their own when it isn’t. What can positive psychology offer to people who live in such facilities as well as the people who care for them? What happens to our emotional lives as we age?
