Psychologist Cerlene Ferreira says that chronological age no longer determines aging. “We live with people over 80 with life projects, interact socially, with physical and mental health in excellent condition. Aging can be understood through psychological difficulty, lack of health and social interaction,” he explains.

For professionals, scientific advances are facilitators of good aging. He asserts, “It’s easier to get old today. Science has changed a lot, prevention of physical and psychological ailments contribute to good aging, and quality of life only improves for healthy aging.” For a psychologist, youth is not only defined by physical conditions. “You can have a forever young mind. All you need is empathy, serenity, social skills, and acceptance of your own aging,” he continues.

In times of pandemic, when the elderly, as a vulnerable group, are forced to stay at home, with little contact with the outside world, isolation, while protecting these people from contracting the virus, also deprives them of social contact. The effects of this are undeniable. To take care of the mental health of the elderly, in this way, Serlin suggests creating a routine that, in addition to the basic activities of daily living, includes moments of entertainment.

For the professional community, the sexist society always demands more of women than men. “But women allow themselves to age with less pressure than they are used to. An example of this is the freedom to choose one’s clothes, without protocols, and the possibility to live with gray hair without feeling guilty,” she said.

Filling the days of solitude with different activities is what Nalfa Nbriga, 94, did. During her professional practice, she was a professor at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN) and an auditor at the Federal Court of Auditors. He has five sons and 12 grandchildren. Completely independent, she lives alone and has her helpers, including companions, a driver and a cook, but the contact with her children is daily, they are always there. He loves to receive friends, and only now the literary evenings that he spent at his house are suspended. She is surrounded by her loved ones all the time.

Nalva also has a great piano companion, having even released six CDs with songs on the instrument. He also published two books of poetry, prayers and meditations, and he is preparing the third book, which is a collection of Chronicles of the Days. He has a YouTube channel, where he has been living during the pandemic. She also takes drawing lessons, does physical activity twice a week and is careful about her food.

It has been followed up for a long time by a trusted cardiologist. She contracted the Corona virus, was treated at home, with all affection and intention – among her relatives, there are doctors. “This pandemic shows us the importance of caring for health, and respecting vaccines,” he says.

Nopolo Mori, 98, general surgeon and founder of the Maternity Hospital and Hospital in Mogi da Cruzes, in the São Paulo metropolitan area. He also established a school of ethics (the study of morals), called the Instituto de Moralogia do Brasil. With the school, he treats causation as one of the themes. “Everything we do and think about has results,” he says, and that’s an obvious fact with the pandemic.

A Japanese descendant – a farmer’s father and mother who came from Japan to the interior of São Paulo at the beginning of the last century – Nopolo has two children and four grandchildren and lives, surviving, on his own. Routines at the hospital changed with social isolation, and so did activities at school. But for him, this is just a change – concretely, he has not isolated himself.

He stopped seeing his patients and attending face-to-face meetings at school and now he’s been playing golf every day since the lockdown began. The golf course is even located in the building of the private institute, where Nopolo plays the sport among about 40 people, aged between 45 and 60 years. “I’m always surrounded by people,” he says. “Exercise makes me young and healthy. I never stand still.”

I am always around people. Exercising makes me young and healthy. And I never stop

Another change in her daily life was to stop going to stores or places, visiting friends or going to the movies. But nothing too serious. With an enviable independence and a very productive life (he stopped driving only three years ago, for example), the emotional harmony he has found so well during the pandemic also comes from his reading habit, and because he is always studying, he is attentive to what is happening in Brazil and in the world.

Very attentive to everything that interests him, such as vaccinations – he never misses an appointment. For Nopolo, what matters is to keep busy and get moving. “We always listen to the gentlemen,” he says. “The coronavirus has caused problems for the whole world. Medicine still can’t deal with the virus. We need more study. Bringing our thoughts closer to God.”
