    Unlocking the Longevity Bonus - Professor Laurie Buys (The University of Queensland)

    Unlocking the Longevity Bonus - Professor Laurie Buys (The University of Queensland)

    Today, we’re talking to Professor Laurie Buys. Laurie is a Professor of Health and Behavioural Sciences at the University of Queensland, and is the former National President of the Australian Association of Gerontology.
    Her most recent research and work has focussed on longevity and how we can deliver better social and economic outcomes for everyone by focusing our attention on products, services and policies for people over 65.
    It's a really interesting conversation, as Laurie is extremely passionate about breaking down traditional barriers of age, and examining how we can be valuable contributors to society long past the so-called “retirement age”.

    End of Life Enrichment - Darren Evans (AfterCloud) and Melissa Reader (Violet Initiative)

    End of Life Enrichment - Darren Evans (AfterCloud) and Melissa Reader (Violet Initiative)

    Today we have a two part episode with two great guests. With the help of Darren Evans from AfterCloud and Melissa Reader from The Violet Initiative, we’ll be focusing on end of life care and how we can transform the final stage of life into a more positive and meaningful experience for everyone.
    First up is Darren Evans, who’s talking about his company AfterCloud, which has created a close group digital sharing platform for people at the end of their lives and beyond. Darren has a lot to say about how technology can be used to enrich the final stage of life and provide a personalised and private digital legacy.
    Next, we have Melissa Reader from The Violet Initiative to talk about how we can eliminate regretful outcomes at the end of life. Melissa shares with us how regretful death adversely affects not just the community at large, but also how it particularly impacts on aged care workers and businesses.

    The Real Home Approach - Susan Ryan (The Greenhouse Project USA)

    The Real Home Approach - Susan Ryan (The Greenhouse Project USA)

    Today we’re talking to Susan Ryan. Susan is the Senior Director of an American not-for-profit called The Green House Project, which proposes an alternative model to traditional care facilities - one that looks and feels like a real home.

    We talk to Susan about the ideas and principles that underpin this model, and what it looks like in a practical sense to operate care facilities that only accommodate a handful of people.

    It's a really interesting conversation, to reimagine the way the care could look and feel if we challenged some of the current core assumptions.

    Just a quick note to say we’d love to hear more about you - our listeners, so we can continually improve our podcast content. If you have 30 seconds to spare, then we’d love to get your answers to our survey at silvradventures.com.au/survey

    Dementia Awareness and the Pace of Progress - Angela Rippon (BBC)

    Dementia Awareness and the Pace of Progress - Angela Rippon (BBC)

    Today, we are very excited to be talking to Angela Rippon.
    Angela is a longstanding and highly awarded British Television presenter who has been working in TV for over 50 years - she was the first female presenter on the BBC, the first host of Top Gear in the 1970s and the host of many other series.
    She’s also a dementia ambassador. After her mum was diagnosed with vascular dementia in the early 2000s, Angela started speaking about the experience and raising awareness for the condition.
    This conversation is a lot of fun, as we talked about her journey in advocacy, the fantastic progress that’s been made and next steps for supporting people living with dementia.

    The Hidden Costs of Loneliness - Johanna Badcock and John Pollaers (Ending Loneliness Together)

    The Hidden Costs of Loneliness - Johanna Badcock and John Pollaers (Ending Loneliness Together)

    Today we have a special look at a pressing issue within aged care, Loneliness.
    To help us unpack the issue we’re joined by Professors Johanna Badcock and John Pollaers both representing Ending Loneliness Together.
    In this conversation we look at just how big a problem loneliness is, how it effects not just care recipients but also care workers, and some potential technologies that could reduce the impacts of loneliness.
    This episode was a really fascinating and great to hear both a clinical and a business perspective on what’s often a forgotten topic.
    We hope you enjoy our loneliness special with Johanna Badcock and John Pollaers.
