"A sweet little old lady, I am not!" Olive, 81, is working hard to get a PhD and help change the world for older women in her rural community. Never Too Old follows Olive Bryanton as she navigates through the final year of her doctoral program at the University of Prince Edward Island.
According to Bryanton, more than half of older adults live in rural communities on P.E.I., and she believes that the services they need aren’t there. She knows that governments don’t create policies without research. So, at the age of 76, she decided to head back to school with a plan to study how older women are ageing in rural P.E.I.
