  • Special Edition of Healthy Options 10/6/16

    Host and Producer: Rhonda Feiman
    Co-Producer: Petra Hall
    Engineer: Amy Browne

    Program Topic: Healthy Aging as the Silver Tsunami Approaches

    Key Discussion Points:
    a) What is the “Silver Tsunami”, and what does this mean for baby boomers, seniors, & our healthcare system?
    b) How do our health care needs change as we age?
    c) What lifestyle habits should we cultivate in order to stay well?
    d) What do baby boomers and seniors and their families need to know when interacting with the medical system?
    e) What is a geriatrician? Why do we need one as we age? Why are there so few of them, in sharp contrast to the increasing population of seniors who need them?
    f) What can we do as patients and as family to be sure that the treatable ailments of seniors are not dismissed as “just old age” or misdiagnosed?

    Guest: Marcy Cottrell Houle, MS., coauthor of The Gift of Caring: Saving Our Parents from the Perils of Modern Healthcare
