Show #16: Resolutions and Reflections

Show #16: Resolutions and Reflections

In our first live show in 2012, the Radio 4 the Ages team gives us a topic-packed show.  We focus primarily on New Years resolutions such as losing weight, quitting smoking, cutting down on plaid flannel shirts, and generally living healthier.  We talk about how so many New Years resolutions go unfulfilled throughout the year and what small things we can do to help increase our chances of success.  We also try to get across the point that “success” can be described as improvement, not perfection. David does his weekly dysfunctional discourse on child homelessness in the U.S., and we give a brief overview of our exciting upcoming shows.  We also want to thank all of our listeners for their support.  Without you, we wouldn’t be able to bring this truly unique live, talk radio show every Sunday morning.   We hope you have as much fun listening to our show as we do making it!

Show #15: New Years Show

Show #15: New Years Show

In another show from the archives, we give you a recap about how Radio 4 the Ages went from an idea to a growing grass-roots movement to better inform, involve, and listen to our senior adults and their loved ones. We bring back the driving segment from earlier this year, which was a hot-button issue for many of our listeners.  We also cover caregiving, the Community Resource Connection, cancer, hospice, adult day-care, and the Senior Games.  If you’ve missed these great segments in our past year of broadcasting, this is a great show to tune in to.

Radio 4 the Ages - 12 - 11 -11 - HIV/AIDS, Seniors, and R.A.I.N.

Show #12: HIV/AIDS, Seniors, and R.A.I.N.

Show #12: HIV/AIDS, Seniors, and R.A.I.N.

 

In this show of Radio 4 the Ages, we cover a topic that isn’t being talked about much, but impacts so many of our senior-adults and people of all ages around the world; HIV/AIDS.  David, Heather, and Matt sit down with two guests Nathan Smith and Cheryl Roberge (both from R.A.I.N. – Regional AIDS Interfaith Network) to discuss HIV/AIDS in the senior community.  HIV/AIDS is a growing problem in the 55+ age group and the lack of awareness and education is leading to more senior-adults becoming infected.  If you or a loved one feels like they may not be at risk for HIV/AIDS because they’re not in the stereotypical group of “people with AIDS”, think again and listen to this show.  Hopefully we can help bring some awareness and inspire active among our senior-adult population.  For more information, please contact R.A.I.N.

Show #10:  Life, Cancer, and Hospice

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.

Show #9: Senior Resources & Accessibility (click play to listen)

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.
