In these articles, the authors explore the behavioral and surgical treatments that offer people with age-related voice loss (presbyphonia) the opportunity for improved voice quality of life. Age-related changes to the body, specific to the vocal mechanism, and a summary of several treatments available to improve the voice in light of the changing needs of the baby boom generation as they get older are explored. In addition, the field of Cognitive Hearing Science examines the relationship between cognitive, linguistic, and hearing functions and their application to clinical practice. Cognitive hearing science techniques for dual-task and hearing-in-noise procedures are explained for speech-language pathologists working with older individuals. Finally, defining moments, core values, and life themes are identified that typify our most senior generation (the “Veterans”). Factors that influence counseling, responses to communication, and communication disorders along with treatment recommendations are identified for supporting this older generation.
