We come back from our Thanksgiving holiday to a show that hits close to home for so many people: cancer. In our first segment, we’re joined in studio by authors Lynnsy Logue (Tongue Cancer and My Organic Cotton Socks) and Josephine Hicks (If There’s Anything I Can Do…What You Can Do When Serious Illness Strikes). We dive into the subject of cancer from two perspectives. One from Lynnsy Logue, and another from our guest Josephine Hicks who lost a partner to pancreatic cancer. Krissa Palmer gives us another great segment of her Senior Moments before we transition to our second half of the show with Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region guests Marilyn Morenz and Laura Fitzpatrick.

In this Sunday’s show we speak with Denise Bordeman and Julia Sain (both of Disability & Rights) about the resources available to seniors, as well as people of all ages, who may have disabilities or their family members. David talks about health insurance and how the lack of price-transparency can impact decisions individuals make in regards to their own healthcare in his weekly “dysfunctional discourse”. We then speak with Brian Carney (of Silver Cross), Rick Griffiths (from AmRamp), and Carolyn Cook (of LiveSmart Design) about home modifications, how important home accessibility is to a senior-adults well-being, and what options may be available to them.

This week’s Senior Moments has been brought to you by Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region
Krissa Palmer gives us another great piece of Carol Remley and Brian Myerscough and their experiences with the Senior Olympics and the sports they compete in. The Senior Olympics is a health and fitness program started in North Carolina in 1983 available to groups of all sizes. For more information on the Senior Olympics, visit their website at www.cmseniorgames.org.
WOW! We can’t believe we’re already on our 7th show here at Radio 4 the Ages, and boy was this show fun! As has become a tradition here at Radio 4 the Ages, David gives us his weekly Dysfunctional Discourse on personal nutrition and over-medication. Joining us in the studio today along with the Radio 4 the Ages team was Dr. Michael Smith N.D. (of Carolinas Natural Health Center), Linda Miller (of Centralina Area Agency on Aging), Mel Miller ( of Ameriprise Financial Services), and Betty Reynolds (Life Coach & Certified Senior Adviser). We dug into several topics surrounding personal responsibility including nutrition, health & fitness, financial & estate planning, and personal networking. The subject of personal responsibility is far too broad and complex for us to have covered in just two hours, but hopefully this show has provided our listeners with inspiration and resources to take the first step!
