Tracey Gendron - Why America Thinks Your Age Is a Big Deal
In America, age is a big deal. We are a youth-obsessed culture that is always looking for the next best thing. This can be seen in the way we talk about aging.We often use words like "elderly" or "senior citizen" to describe older adults, as if they are a different species.This othering creates a sense of distance between us and them, which can lead to negative attitudes and stereotypes.ย  Ageism is a form of discrimination that is based on age.ย It can affect anyone, regardless of their actual age.One of the most common examples is the way we treat older adults. We often assume that they are not as capable as younger people, and this can lead to them being overlooked or ignored.Ageism can also affect caregiving, as older adults may be less likely to receive care if they are perceived as being a burden.Generational labels are another example of ageism. They are often used to divide people into groups based on their age, which can create feelings of competition or hostility between different generations.The term "successful aging" is also problematic, as it suggests that there is a right and wrong way to age.Elderhood is a better way to talk about older age than retirement, as it acknowledges the many contributions that older adults make to society.It also recognizes that aging is a natural process that should be celebrated, not feared.Today my guest is Dr. Tracey Gendron. Dr. Tracey Gendron is a highly respected gerontologist and author who is dedicated to understanding and raising awareness of ageism.She has written the book "Ageism Unmasked: Exploring Age Bias and How to End it."Her research focuses on the language and expression of ageism, as well as on elderhood as a stage of development.Dr. Gendron's personal and professional goal is to understand and disrupt the deeply embedded, normalized, and invisible ageism that exists within us all.Learn more about Tracey:LinkedIn: her book "Ageism Unmasked":

Alberto Espay - a Study Finds That AB42 Loss of Function Is a Key Factor in the Development of Alzheimer's Disease
Imagine for a moment that you are watching your loved one slowly deteriorate.They can no longer remember your name, what they did yesterday, what to do with their keys, or even how to brush their teeth. As the disease progresses, they become more and more withdrawn, until eventually, they can no longer recognize the faces of their loved ones. It's a heart-wrenching experience that I wouldn't wish on anyone.This is the reality for millions of people around the world who are affected by Alzheimer's disease. While there is no cure for Alzheimer's, there is hope. New research is providing insights into how we can better treat the disease.One such study has found that targeting amyloid beta could be more effective than previously thought.Amyloid-positive carriers of autosomal dominant Alzheimerโ€™s disease-causing mutations were put under observation for 3 years.The study found that higher levels of soluble Aฮฒ42 predicted a lower risk of progression to cognitive impairment to a greater extent than lower levels of brain amyloid. In other words, it showed that treating Alzheimer's disease by targeting amyloid beta could be more effective than previously thought.This is an important finding that could change the way we approach Alzheimer's disease treatment in the future.For me, these hits close to home. My mother, mother-in-law, my brother-in-law, neighbor, sister's mother-in-law, and I have watched as the disease slowly robbed families of their memories, their ability to communicate, and eventually their mobility.To see that there might be a way to target the disease more effectively is very exciting. It gives me hope that one day we might be able to slow down or even stop the progression of Alzheimerโ€™s and Give people like me and your loved ones some of their precious memories back.Today my guest is Dr. Alberto Espay. Alberto Espay is a professor and endowed chair at the University of Cincinnati's James J. and Joan A. Gardner Center for Parkinsonโ€™s disease.He has published over 300 peer-reviewed research articles and 8 books, including Common Movement Disorders Pitfalls and Brain Fables: The Hidden History of Neurodegenerative Diseases and a Blueprint to Conquer Them.Espay has served as Chair of the Movement Disorders Section of the American Academy of Neurology, Associate Editor of the Movement Disorders journal, and on the Executive Committee of the Parkinson Study Group.

Wendy K. Goidel - Don't Let the Legal Issues of Aging Catch You by Surprise
We all hope to live long and healthy lives. But as we age, our bodies change and we may face new challenges. This can be difficult to accept, but it's important to remember that we still have rights and choices - even as we get older.For example, did you know that you have the right to choose how you want to be cared for if you become incapacitated? Or that there are options for long-term care that can help you stay in your own home? Or that you can create an estate plan to protect your assets if you need to go into a nursing home?Making informed decisions about our aging process can be difficult, but it's so important. We need to think about our wishes for end-of-life care, how to make sure our family is taken care of financially if we pass away, and the tax implications of our estate plan. These are all big decisions, but they don't have to be overwhelming.Take some time today to educate yourself about your rights and choices as you age. It's important to be prepared for whatever life throws our way. And who knows - maybe by doing some planning now, we can avoid some difficult surprises down the road.Today my guest is Wendy K. Goidel, Esq. Wendy is an attorney with over 22 years of experience in the estate planning and elder law field. She has a unique perspective on the industry, having founded both the Goidel Law Group and Concierge Care Coordination.Her goal is to help her clients age safely and successfully in the residence of their choice, by providing them with comprehensive care coordination services. She firmly believes that every client deserves individualized attention, which is why she takes the time to learn about them and their families before developing solutions that address their specific needs.Find Wendy on:LinkedIn: Law Group PLLC:ย

Johannes Boshkow - Behavioral Science: The Key to Better Patient Outcomes for Baby Boomers
Imagine for a moment that you have been diagnosed with a chronic illness. Perhaps it's diabetes or heart disease. You know that if you don't take care of yourself, the consequences could be severe. So you diligently follow your treatment plan, checking your blood sugar levels or taking your medication every day without fail.But then one day, life gets in the way. You miss a dose of medication, or you forget to test your blood sugar. It seems like no big deal at the time, but soon enough, you start to slip into old habits. Before long, you're back to square one, struggling to manage your illness.And that's where behavioral science comes in. Behavioral science is the study of understanding human behavior. It helps us understand how we can change our behavior for the better, and how we can make lasting changes in our lives.It's not easy to change our habits, but behavioral science offers us a roadmap for success. With enough patience and effort, we can overcome any obstacle and achieve our goals. So if you're struggling with a chronic illness, don't give up hope. There is help available, and with the right tools and support, you can succeed.Today my guest is Johannes Boshkow. Johannes always had a fascination with the way things worked - how molecules interact to create physical and chemical phenomena. This curiosity led him to study chemistry at some of the world's most renowned universities: ETH Zurich in Switzerland and Harvard University in the US.After completing his doctorate, He then joined the business development team at Observia in 2020 where he works on bringing innovative patient support to markets worldwide.

Giulio Maria Pasinetti - Aging Is Inevitable. But Biological Aging? That's Optional.
For thousands of years, humans have been aging. And as our technology has progressed, so has our understanding of aging. We now know that while chronological aging is inevitable, biological aging is not. That's why it's so important to understand the biology of aging. We can reduce our risk factors for disease and improve our quality of life by making conscious choices about how we live our lives.When you hear that the baby boomer generation is getting older and people are living longer than ever before, what does that mean for us? Well, the definition of "aging successfully" is up for debate. Some people think that baby boomers have taken advantage of the system and should retire earlier.Others argue that we need to find a way to financially support older adults who are unable to work. There are also concerns about whether or not the healthcare system can handle an aging population. Many baby boomers are choosing to stay active and healthy well into their golden years. So, it's important to remember that each person's experience with aging is unique. We should all be prepared for the challenges and opportunities that come with growing old.Will baby boomers be the last generation to experience successful aging? Or will millennials and Generation X continue to enjoy good health into their golden years? Only time will tell.But one thing is for sure: the science of aging is constantly evolving, and we're only getting better at fighting the effects of age-related disease.No matter what the future holds, we should all strive to age gracefully and with dignity.----------Joining me today is DR. GIULIO MARIA PASINETTI, MD, Ph.D. He is a world-renowned expert on aging and Alzheimer's disease. He has dedicated his life to understanding the root causes of brain disorders.

Alex Cahana - Baby Boomers, Blockchain and Beyond: How Web 3.0 Technologies Improve Health
Baby boomers have always been known for their innovative thinking and for being on the forefront of new technologies. Now, as they enter retirement, baby boomers are once again at the forefront of innovation, this time in the form of Metaverse, Blockchain, and Web 3.0 technologies. While these new technologies offer a world of potential, they also come with a unique set of challenges.One of the biggest challenges is figuring out how to use new technologies to their advantage. Many baby boomers grew up in a time when everything was done offline, so adapting to a world where everything is online can be difficult.They also worry about online safety. Also, baby boomers must navigate a complex financial landscape where it can be hard to determine if assets are worth acquiring. Finally, baby boomers must learn how to use these technologies in conjunction with each other.There are also numerous opportunities. As baby boomers age, the healthcare industry is preparing for an influx of patients. Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize how healthcare is delivered. It can be used to keep track of patient outcomes and medication regimens. This is very important for baby boomers, who are more likely to take multiple medications and visit multiple specialists.ย  Blockchain technology POTENTIALLY would allow doctors and nurses to quickly find and fix problems in the care process. Blockchain could be used to verify the identities of patients and providers, ensuring that only authorized individuals have access to sensitive information.For baby boomers, dealing with healthcare costs and payments can be a real hassle. You're on a fixed income, and every time you go to the doctor or get a prescription, it feels like there's another bill to pay. Fortunately, blockchain technology is beginning to change all that. With blockchain, payments can be made more efficiently and securely, without all the paperwork and hassle.These technologies offer a level of security and transparency that is incredibly important for older adults who are handling their finances for the first time. With blockchain, baby boomers can track their money and make sure that they are getting the best deals possible. And with tokens, they can access a wide range of financial services that can help them to manage their money more effectively. As a result, blockchain and tokens are becoming increasingly popular with baby boomers who want to take control of their financial future.By harnessing the power of blockchain, we can ensure that baby boomers receive the best possible care.----------Bio:Joining me today is Dr. Alex Cahana, MD, a physician with over 25 years of clinical experience.

Julie Viola - The Great Resignation, Unpaid Childcare, and Flexible Work Schedules
The Great Resignation has been a hot topic lately, with many people debating its pros and cons. While some see it as a way to improve their work-life balance, others worry about the impact it could have on their career. But what is the Great Resignation, and why is it so controversial?The Great Resignation is when someone voluntarily leaves their job, usually without another job lined up. They do this to focus on other areas of their life, such as their family or personal health. While this may seem like a good idea, in theory, there are some potential downsides. For example, leaving your job without another one lined up can be a risky move financially. And if you're in a highly competitive field, taking time off could put you at a disadvantage when you try to reenter the workforce.The term โ€œsandwich generationโ€ is used to describe the group of people who are sandwiched between the demands of taking care of their aging parents while also caring for their own children. This can be a difficult juggling act, and employers need to be understanding and accommodating of this demographic. Employees in the sandwich generation may need more flexible working schedules in order to be able to meet the demands of caring for both parents and children. They may also need more time off or different types of benefits, such as elder care benefits. By understanding the needs of employees in the sandwich generation, employers can create a more supportive and productive work environment.My guest is Julie Viola, MHA. She is known as a catalyst of healthcare strategies and go-to-market execution in the health tech field. Her ability to connect ideas and people results in strategies that drive brand preference, successful solution launches, and campaigns of impact.ย  She joins me today to discuss the sandwich generation and what companies need to know about this demographic as it relates to working schedules and benefits.Find Julie on:LinkedIn:ย Health Ventures:ย

Marlon Sobol - The Power of Music to Heal Seniors with Dementia
Researchers have focused on how music can benefit those with Alzheimer's. Anecdotal evidence shows that music can tap memories and reduce anxiety, pain, heart rate, and blood pressure. It can help accelerate healing, boost learning, improve neurological disorders and increase social interaction.Musical memories are often preserved in Alzheimer's disease because key brain areas linked to musical memory are relatively undamaged by the disease. Listening to favorite music can trigger long-term memories and bring comfort to people with Alzheimer's.Music therapy can also reduce agitation, anxiety, and aggression in people with dementia. For some people, music may help ease physical pain. And research suggests that group singing may help improve memory and social interactions.Today My guest is Marlon Sobol MT-BC, LCAT. Marlon is a highly energetic and engaging music therapist and musician with over 20 years of experience in the Healthcare industry and has toured America and Europe, playing some of the biggest stages.He chooses to make meaningful music experiences with people of all ages and walks of life!
