Life After Youth

Show #154

There is Life after Youth, even in the USA, arguably the most youth obsessed nation on the planet! “Young” is prettier, stronger, sexier, more valuable and desirable, and lest we forget, more pleasing to the olfactory senses. That’s right, youth smells better than old!

What a great show for my student intern from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to start with us. Zach Fandl is a senior student at UNCC majoring in Psycholgy and minoring in Gerontology and Women and Gender Studies. Zach brings an interest in aging and a 23 year young perspective to the discussion.

Julie was such a joy to share two hours with today! She brings joy to all around her, and her positive spirit is infectious. I know that you will enjoy listening to Julie share a wonderful story about her late husband Stan’s passing. It is all about peace, acceptance, and a strong spiritual foundation. So take a few moments and treat yourself to some laughter, wisdom, inspiration and tips to living life on your terms.

Show #20: Aging with Dignity

Show #20: Aging with Dignity

This Sunday, the Radio 4 the Ages team was pleased to have guests Larry Dawalt (from Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region) and John Lincourt (specializing in Biomedical Ethics and Philosophy).  This show was dedicated entirely to discussing “aging with dignity”.  We  discuss, in depth, what it means to have dignity later on in life and even discover that there is more than just one type of dignity.  We also learn some helpful information about how to better care for our aging loved ones and to be more aware of treating them with dignity.  If you or a loved one have been wondering about how to age with dignity, this is the show for you!  We hope our show will shed light on a topic that almost everyone will be presented with at some point in their life.  Stay Informed, Involved, Active, and Listened To.
