Show # 69: LGBT ELDER ISSUES, MEDITATION


David and Matt share the studio today and cover two major topics for discussion: the sensitivities and  training required of care givers in long term care facilities in caring for people from different cultures and lifestyles; specifically in caring for the LGBT (Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender)  and HIV/Aids aging population. The second main topic was meditation, and the health benefits from meditation and controlled breathing techniques.

David also covers the changing format for the show, with Guest Co-Hosts coming into the studio for most shows, and the potential for Matt and Heather to do more interesting segments and on-site coverage of local senior friendly events.

During David’s Discourse, David breaks out his new program for a successful quality of life as we age:  P*L*E*A*S*E. This acronym, created by David, stands for Prayer, Laughter, Exercise, Attitude, Service, and Everyday. It’s powerful stuff!

Kimberly Hicks of Into The Valley shares some meditation thoughts with the audience, and David and Matt discuss the six pillars of a brain healthy lifestyle.

Matt’s technology segment covers the basics of the Evernote app, and Google’s Glasses.
