Abstract:

Journey to 100 (60 min.): Everyone has heard that Canada's population is changing. What does this mean in our day-to-day lives and what does it mean for our futures? How do we respond to social issues like finances, health care, careers, retirement and housing? Living every day (60 min.): People understand more and more the importance of maintaining their health. The program will profile people living active, healthy retirements and they will inspire us regardless of our age, to insure we really live the lives we desire.

Myths of aging (60 min.): Many people associate aging with loss of memory, sight and hearing as well as mobility issues, sleeping problems and sexual dysfunction. Many of these beliefs are myths. If we have accurate information about aging, we are less likely to buy into these myths and be better equipped to live healthier lifestyles. Use it or lose it (60 min.): Heart disease, cancer, arthritis and osteoporosis - are they preventable? Many experts believe they are. Even if someone has a chronic illnes, what can be done to improve their quality of life? What can baby boomers do to support their parents who are living with these diseases? This program will focus on people who have chronic illnesses. It will address current knowledge about chronic illnesses as well as how those with these illnesses continue to live successfully.

Attitude is everything (60 min.): Keeping a healthy outlook on life is critical as we age. By using current research and personal stories, focus is on the importance of family, friends, and the support systems we need as we age. Club sandwich generation (60 min.): Baby boomers are having to look after their own young families as well as their aging parents. The longer people live, the more layers are added to the sandwich, and the more complicated elder care becomes.
