Show #63: Live from Atria Merrywood, it’s Radio 4 the Ages!

Show #63: Live from Atria Merrywood, it’s Radio 4 the Ages!

Recorded live on December 13th, David and Heather were at Atria Merrywood’s Festival of Trees.  There was food, refreshments, door prizes, live music, and even a silent tree auction in which the proceeds went to Home Instead Senior Care’s Santa-to-a-Senior program which provides gifts to older adults in need in the Charlotte area.  We spoke with Ty Cain (Marketing Director, Atria Merrywood) and Ann Marie Obrikat (Community Sales Director, Atria Merrywood) about the history of the Atria Merrywood community and the benefits residents can enjoy.  We also interviewed Roberta Farnum of Home Instead Senior Care, Cindy Greer of Transition with Care, two lovely residents of Atria Merrywood and several more. Listen in, close your eyes, and relive the merriment of this great event!

Show #61: Seniors and Internet Dating

Show #61: Seniors and Internet Dating

Although it may come as some surprise to young folks, it’s a fact that many senior adults and baby boomers are looking for love and companionship.  There are many ways to meet someone.  A coffee shop, a farmers market, a book signing, or as Heather suggests, even Trader Joe’s at 8pm on a Sunday night.  One of the growing ways for senior adults and baby boomers to meet potential dates is through internet dating websites.  We discuss how people use internet dating websites and even hear several personal stories from David and a few of our callers about their experiences.  If you’ve ever been interested or curious about internet dating, tune in!
