Weather the storms of life
Greetings one and all… Regardless of where you live, it has been a rather stormy Spring season—to say the very least!

The 5 C’s of Living Well and Aging Well

Greetings one and all… In the fall of every year, I contemplate possible ideas for programming in the upcoming year.

What is Loneliness and Why do We Feel Lonely?

Greetings one and all… Every year, my challenge as an educator is to create innovative, relevant programs for my clients and audiences. Consequently, I invest significant time and effort in reviewing the latest research and publications related to aging, caregiving, and end-of-life care. Every year without exception, a theme emerges reflecting societal concerns, needs, and/or... Read more

Spring has Sprung!

Greetings one and all… Spring has officially sprung according to the calendar. To confirm the arrival of the season, it felt and looked like Spring along the Front Range this week. In fact, a friend of mine noted that daffodils are blooming in her garden. A sure sign of the season. Metaphorically speaking, I am... Read more

The Senior Smuggling Scam

Beware of free vacations, unless you’re prepared for the possibility of an extended stay in a Peruvian prison for unintentionally smuggling 14.5 pounds of cocaine hidden in children’s Bibles. Though it sounds like something out of a film (like Clint Eastwood’s The Mule), it actually happened to two elderly British men last August. It’s one... Read more
