    Author James Flaherty - Dear Old Friends

    Author James Flaherty - Dear Old Friends

    "86 going on 60."
    That's what and how my guest feels. James Flaherty is the author of https://www.amazon.com/DEAR-OLD-FRIENDS-REMINDER-PLAYING-ebook/dp/B09MJGH2DZ (Dear Old Friends).
    The book is a reminder you don't stop playing because you got old--you got old because you stopped playing (and laughing and learning and creating and living). Besides a Happy Memoir from an author who wrote this book at age 44 and 85--DEAR OLD FRIENDS was originally a love letter to all the wonderful, much older friends the author said made his life so much more worthwhile.
    Full of loving advice for aging magnificently, you'll want to read it and want all your Dear Old Friends--not just your parents--to read, smile, learn and think about how satisfying it is to make every day better.
    As James reminds us, today is the oldest you've ever been--and the youngest you'll ever be--so let's make today great.

    Dr. David Sofer and Understanding Arthritis Pain and Management

    Dr. David Sofer and Understanding Arthritis Pain and Management

    "I teach people with arthritis to move differently, so they can overcome pain and get back to doing the things they love."
    My guest is Dr. David Sofer. And this is a quote from his website, www.arthritishelp.info.
    In our conversation, he states that being diagnosed with arthritis is not a call to the wheelchair and chronic pain. Yes, arthritis is a chronic condition possibly giving us chronic pain. But 50% of those diagnosed with arthritis will not feel the pain or discomfort of this disease.
    He teaches the principles of movement, which breaks down the fundamentals of how we move. That helps us understand how to live with arthritis.
    Dr. Dave talks more about posture as well. As he states in this interview, there is no such thing as good or bad posture. Your body tends toward what is comfortable for you, to get your body to balance over your bones.
    And finally, we talk about how patients are diagnosed with arthritis, and how it is wearing and irregularity in your joints.
    His website is full of free tutorials and videos to help you help yourself understand and manage the pain of arthritis.
    Dr. Dave developed his unique method for relieving arthritis pain by combining his decades of clinical practice as a physical therapist and his background as a champion gymnast and springboard diver. Refining this method over thousands of treatments for arthritis patients Dr. Dave inspires and empowers them to overcome their limitations and regain the ability to do the things they love.
    He has shown that everyone has the ability to improve no matter their age, diagnosis, or physical ability. With the right guidance, understanding, and commitment you have the ability to feel better.

    Choose Home Care Act of 2021

    Choose Home Care Act of 2021

    https://movinghealthhome.org/choose-home-care-act-fact-sheet/ (The Choose Home Care Act of 2021), introduced by Senators Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Todd Young (R-IN), aims to give more seniors the option to receive care at home for 30 days after a hospitalization, rather than going to a skilled nursing facility or other transitional settings.
    The legislation would open the door to a variety of home-based services, including skilled nursing, therapy, primary care, personal care, RPM, telehealth, meals, home adaptations and non-emergent transportation.
    My guest is Joe Russell, Executive Director at https://www.ochch.org/ (Ohio Council for Home Care and Hospice).
    https://www.ochch.org/advocacy (Here's how you can take action to help this Act move forward.)
    https://www.ochch.org/advocacy/take-action#phone2action (And here's a link to helpful tips to get your voice heard by your representatives.)

    Online Scammers and Spammers

    Online Scammers and Spammers

    Ed Brazee, Jill Spencer, and Chris Toy from Boomer Tech Adventures are back as my guests on this episode.BoomerTECH Adventures is all about serving boomers and seniors who want to feel competent and confident in their online skills while using their personal technology devices.Spamming is kind of a benign form of scamming. It's not necessarily evil, but it certainly does take resources and time. Be sure to keep your personal information offline because that's how the spammers find you. Plus, if you have a digital assistant like Siri or Amazon's system, Alexa or Google, they are always listening. That can actually result in ads that will kind of target you.Be careful if you receive an email that may like it's from a known source or an unknown source. If it has a link in the email and it asks you to click on that link from inside the email, you want to avoid that. What's happening is that the hacker or scammer is directing you to go to a place that they have designated.Similar to that is, more and more, you'll see your social media someone who you know, you're friends with, and you get a message from this friend asking you to be their friend, but you're already their friend. Don't do anything with that request.A recent survey showed that 19% of people between 50 and 64 have explored online dating,And a lot of people are looking for companionship. They're recent widows, widowers, or divorced and would really like to have someone in their life. But beware. These scammers are charming, they're persistent, persuasive, and they play on your emotions, especially guilt. If there's any request for money, end the conversation right there.The Amazon brushing scam. Brushing is a scam in which third-party Amazon vendors send people products they never actually bought. While this may seem an odd scam at first, it is all to do with exploiting Amazon's search ranking system. This then pushes their items up their search rankings and encourages more genuine purchases.When it's all said and done, trust your intuition, trust your hunch. If it doesn't feel right, don't go there, don't do it.Find out more about BoomerTECH Adventures on their website - https://www.boomertechadventures.com/ (https://www.boomertechadventures.com/)Email me, Lisa Stockdale, anytime at aginginfullbloom@gmail.comAging In Full Bloom is sponsored by Capital Health Care Network, an Ohio-based, family-owned and operated company, providing solutions that help seniors age on their own terms.

Always a great, insightful, easy listen

Lisa always has insightful guests that bring to light a topic of senior care. I enjoyed her recent podcast talking about the importance of metabolic health. It can be overwhelming trying to figure out what is best for our bodies these days. This cardiologist touched on the fad diets and the importance of sticking to the basics of plain and simple fresh non processed foods.
