Aging Info Radio – 65 is the new 40 – Smilecast 55

65 is the new 40

This podcast is taken from a radio show I was a guest on in Chicago. It coincided with a TV show that was on at the time called Forever Young, a reality-based show that had older adults rooming with younger adults for many weeks. The lessons they taught each other were invaluable. And you soon come to realize that all generations can learn from each other and have something to offer. And indeed you learn that 65 is the new 40.

Paying for Care – Smilecast 26

Paying for Care

Paying for care. There are a lot of misconceptions. Let’s clear them up in the episode. People mistakenly think Medicare will somehow pay for your long term needs. It does in limited circumstances. Other than that you are on your own. Deplete your money and go on to Medicaid or buy long term care insurance if you can afford it. This is the elephant in the room that few want to talk about or prepare for so learn the lesson and prepare for your aging financially sooner.

Traveling with Seniors, Charlotte Today

Traveling with Seniors

With summer here it’s time to make vacation plans. When it comes to traveling with seniors, a little extra planning is necessary to assure that caregivers and seniors alike enjoy the vacation. I cover the following from my Charlotte Today segment:

  • How can we know whether a senior is capable of handling a trip especially if it is an extended one or far away?
  • How do you start planning?
  • How do you choose where to go?
  • Are there best places to go that are recommended by experts?
  • Are there online resources that can help boomers and seniors plan.
