Modern medical practice often calls for health care providers to spend a very short amount of time with each patient. For that reason, navigating our health care system can be a daunting experience. It is critical for all seniors, and especially solo agers, to learn the most effective ways to communicate in order to make the most of the brief time allotted. Christina Irving from Family Caregives Alliance will help clarify the current realities of the health care experience.

One of the critical factors in maintaining health and mobility as we age is our own attitude about being solo-agers. Our culture has embraced an attitude of “decrepitude” about aging, assuming that we grow weaker and worse as we grow older. The Wise Aging program, created by two Jewish educators, helps adults change how we look at our aging process. Through life review discussions and essential plans for cultivating nourishing relationships, this program will provide positive, supportive information to dispel the “declinest” view.
