    Person-centered Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic

    Person-centered Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic

    This episode of the Living to 100 Club radio program invites a respected and noted authority on geriatric medicine and long term care, Dr. Michael Wasserman. Patient-centered care recognizes the uniqueness of each patient receiving care, including not only their age, gender, and socio-economic status, but also their place of birth, cultural backgrounds, and individual life experiences. We will discuss why the COVID-19 virus is so lethal to frail older adults, and the devastating impact it is having in nursing homes around the country. Then, Dr. Wasserman will explore how this public health crisis contributes further to the isolation that older adults experience, and why person-centered care can make the difference in quality care delivery. Actually, getting to know the patient – and his or her goals and preferences – best defines this approach, and we will shine a light on how it can be practiced in our work with older adults.

    Aging, Sexuality, and Infidelity in the Digital Age

    Our next episode of the Living to 100 Club radio program explores aging and sexuality. Our guest is Dr. Peter Kanaris, a clinical psychologist with a specialty in sexuality and mental health. We will discuss the favorable and unfavorable changes in sexual activity in seniors, such as physical, psychological, and relationship benefits and the challenges that occur with advancing age, challenges from things like illness, medications, loss of partners, and now the COVID-19 virus. Also explored is the proliferation of sexual addictions and pornography, the difficulties in recovery, and re-establishing trust in these relationships. Our guest will highlight how “out of control” sexual behavior can damage relationships, end marriages, diminish productivity, threaten employment, and jeopardize health and well-being. Finally, Dr. Kanaris will share his unique models of treatment as “cyber infidelity” becomes the definitive mental health issue in couples counseling in the 21st Century.

    How We Flourish in the Second Half of Life

    How We Flourish in the Second Half of Life

    We are very fortunate to have Dr. Ken Druck as the next guest on the Living to 100 Club radio program, as we discuss his new book, “Raising an Aging Parent”. An international authority on what it means to live courageously, Ken’s new book deals with all the ways we can strengthen the relationship we have with our adult children and aging parents. With 77 million Americans turning 65 or older in the next 14 years, the changes and challenges, as well as the opportunities, of caregiving aging parents, often at the same time we’re raising children, will require a roadmap for how to survive, and to thrive. Proactively addressing issues like, “Grieving the loss of the younger version of our parents – and ourselves?” “Why raising” is not the same as “controlling” an aging parent” and “How we can understand and support aging parents as they face new transitions and choices is often the best way to insure our best possible futures”.
