    Intergenerational Education - Greg Cronan (Intergenerational Learning Australia)

    Intergenerational Education - Greg Cronan (Intergenerational Learning Australia)

    Today, we're talking about the two-way benefits of developing sustainable connections and bonds between older adults and children, and to help us explore this topic in detail we are joined by Greg Cronan from Intergenerational Learning Australia.


    We're sure most of you would have watched the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) show 'Old People's Home for 4 Year Olds'? Greg has worked with many of the same guests and team that featured on the show and he shares with us a lot of the transformative benefits that collaborative learning programs can have for both generations.


    With a background outside of aged care, Greg became interested in using technology to connect older adults and kids together where they could bring meaning, excitement and support to each other through a structured learning program.


    One of the things that Greg talks about is the personal connections that participants in these programs develop and how that can improve the quality of life and engagement for both parties. We also feature in this episode a little audio snippet from Greg’s work, in which you can hear some one of the classroom sessions unfolding as well as some participants giving their feedback.


    As always if you enjoy the show, please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods. It means a great deal to the show and will make it easier for other potential listeners to find us.

    The Alzheimer's Awareness Global Movement - Paola Barbarino (Alzheimer’s Disease International)

    The Alzheimer's Awareness Global Movement - Paola Barbarino (Alzheimer’s Disease International)

    Today, we're incredibly excited to be joined on the podcast by Paola Barbarino, the CEO of Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI).
    ADI are the global leaders of the Alzheimer's and Dementia awareness movement, representing over 100 national associations all the way to the highest stages of international co-operation - The United Nations and World Health Organisation. Paola and her team are tireless in their work supporting organisations like Dementia Australia, Alzheimer's UK and Alzheimer's Association (USA) and providing resources for people diagnosed and living with dementia, their families, carers, clinicians, NGOs and Governments.
    ADl is behind World Alzheimer's Month which just wrapped up, but raising awareness doesn't stop and it's a constant journey that we all need to be on together, so we're releasing this episode outside of World Alzheimer's Month, to keep the conversation and momentum going.
    Why is awareness still so important in developed countries like the UK and Australia?
    Why should our immediate focus be on the journey to diagnosis and beyond?
    How has the Covid pandemic affected diagnosis and what's the perfect storm that's on the horizon?
    How can passionate advocates drag reluctant Governments to change?


    Paola provides great insights into all of this and much more. We hope you enjoy this episode and if you do, then share your feedback with us via a review on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods. It means a great deal to the show and will make it easier for other potential listeners to find us.

    Latin America's Silver Economy - Flora Proverbio (Ethnos Strategy)

    Latin America's Silver Economy - Flora Proverbio (Ethnos Strategy)

    Today, we’re talking to somebody from a country and region we haven’t heard a lot about. Our guest is Flora Proverbio from Buenos Aires Argentina who does quite a few different things. She helps older adults find employment, helps companies market their products to people over 50, and runs a community for women over 50 called Plateadas.


    In the interview we get into some of the challenges that Flora faced when looking for work in her late 40s, the work she does with her silver economy consultancy Ethnos Strategy, and the changing perception of older people in Latin America.


    Having lived and worked in the US for many years, Flora has some interesting insights into what makes ageing in Argentina and the wider region, a very different experience to countries like Australia.


    For people who’ve listened to the show for a while, you’ll know that we’re fascinated by how the ageing experience and aged care services differ for different cultures and countries, so this was a really interesting episode for us

    Parkinson's and Positivity - Clyde Campbell (Shake it Up) and Wesley Della Volla (Georgetown University)

    Parkinson's and Positivity - Clyde Campbell (Shake it Up) and Wesley Della Volla (Georgetown University)

    Today, we’ve got a two part episode focusing on a topic we haven’t talked about at all on the podcast, Parkinson’s disease. To help us explore the experience of people living with Parkinson’s, we have the CEO of the Shake it Up Foundation, Clyde Campbell, and in the second half of the show, immersive storyteller and friend of pod, Wesley Della Volla.


    Clyde shares the story of how his diagnosis propelled him into the field of Parkinson’s research, and how The Shake it Up Foundation is pairing Australian researchers with the Michael J. Fox Foundation in the US to help slow, stop and cure Parkinson’s.


    Wesley is an Adjunct Lecturer at Georgetown University and Founder of Meridian TreeHouse in Washington. Wesley has an extensive career working in the immersive storytelling space with National Geographic, particularly through our favourite medium, virtual reality. As you’ll hear in the interview, his focus changed after his diagnosis with young onset Parkinson’s, and he’s passionate about building transformative virtual experiences for people with neuro-diversity and physical limitations.

    Sarcopenia and Malnutrition - David Scott and Judi Porter (Deakin University)

    Sarcopenia and Malnutrition - David Scott and Judi Porter (Deakin University)

    Today, we welcome two guests from the institute of physical activity and nutrition at Deakin University, Professors David Scott and Judi Porter.


    Both David and Judi’s work focuses on older adults, with David looking at physical exercise and Judi at nutrition. And today we’re talking about the cross section of these two fields in aged care, with an exploration of sarcopenia and malnutrition.


    As you’ll hear in this episode sarcopenia and malnutrition go hand in hand, particularly in residential aged care and there are a lot of extenuating factors that need to be overcome for successful health interventions, whether they’re dietary or movement based.
