A diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and unprocessed whole grains can provide our bodies with all the nutrients we need to function optimally. And by adhering to this type of eating plan, we can reduce our risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions that are commonly associated with aging.One option for those looking to transition to a healthier way of eating is the Eat To Live Retreat. As the name suggests, this retreat is all about helping participants achieve their health goals by providing them with the education, guidance, and support they need.Led by renowned nutrition expert Dr. Joel Fuhrman, M.D., this intensive residential program teaches people how to eat for life - not just for quick fixes or temporary results.Whether you're dealing with chronic disease or simply want to improve your overall quality of life through better nutrition, this retreat could be exactly what you need to achieve optimal wellness. So if you are a baby boomer ready to embrace new approaches toward health and longevity, consider signing up for a retreat.By utilizing this diet, baby boomers can protect their brains from neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and support healthy aging at the cellular level.Overall, the nutritarian diet is an ideal choice for supporting brain health, longevity, and healthy aging during this crucial phase of life.----------Bio:Dr. Joel Fuhrman, M.D. is a graduate of the Univ.

Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases are two of the world's most common neurological disorders. Alzheimer's affects approximately 6.2 million people, while Parkinson's affects nearly 10 million, according to the World Health Organization.These diseases can have far-reaching consequences for both patients and their families. Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease can cause depression and anxiety in addition to memory loss, confusion, and mobility issues.These diseases have a tremendous impact on healthcare systems and families, leading to increased burdens on care providers and significantly altering the lives of those affected.There is no cure for either disease, but there are treatments that can help with symptoms. Medical marijuana is a promising area of study for both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.While more research is needed, preliminary evidence suggests that cannabinoids may aid in the improvement of sleep, the reduction of inflammation, and the protection of nerve cells from damage.Another promising area of research is personalized medicine. This method entails tailoring treatment to the individual patient, taking into account factors such as genetic makeup and lifestyle. We may one day be able to develop more effective treatments and even find a cure if we better understand the causes of these diseases.Until then, we must continue to support patients and their families as they face the challenges of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.----------Bio:Dr. Flávio Henrique de Rezende Costa MD, MSc, PhD, is a neurologist and movement disorder specialist.

The Baby Boomer generation is known for being ambitious, hard-working, and eager to take risks. As such, they are well-positioned to invest in early-stage venture capital and alternative investment firms.These firms are often looking for individuals with the financial resources and willingness to take risks that can help them grow impactful companies across the globe. Baby boomers can leverage their experience and networks to make these firms more purpose-driven, inclusive, and accessible.For example, they can provide mentorship and support to entrepreneurs from underrepresented communities or connect them with resources and contacts that can help them succeed. By investing in these firms, baby boomers can not only earn a financial return but also help to create positive social change.----------Bio:Dr. Navin Goyal M.D. is the CEO of LOUD Capital and a practicing anesthesiologist.

For years, we've been told that smoking is bad for our health. We know it increases our risk of lung cancer, heart disease, and other serious illnesses.But what about sitting? According to experts, sitting is the new smoking. And like smoking, it can have a negative impact on our health. Studies have linked extended periods of sitting with an increased risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.Sitting for long periods of time can also lead to back and neck pain. In fact, some researchers believe that the negative health effects of sitting are so significant that they may even outweigh the dangers of smoking.So what can we do to reduce the risks associated with sitting?For starters, WE CAN STAND UP!For many seniors, the latter third of life can be a time of great uncertainty. With retirement often marking the end of a career, and declining health making it difficult to remain active, it can be easy to feel like life has lost its purpose. Many people retire from their careers and find themselves with more free time than they know what to do with. Others may no longer have the same hobbies or interests that they once did. But research has shown that having a sense of purpose can greatly improve your health and well-being, no matter your age.There are many ways for seniors to achieve a longer health span AND FINDING PURPOSE is often central to this goal.--------------------Bio:Chuck Gaidica, is a familiar face in Detroit, where he has worked as a TV anchor and host for over 30 years.

In today's world, it's more important than ever to think about retirement investing. With traditional pensions becoming increasingly rare, and social security benefits failing to keep pace with the cost of living, retirees are facing greater financial challenges than ever before.One way to address these challenges is to invest in multifamily real estate. By owning rental properties, retirees can generate a reliable source of income that can help to cover their living expenses. Additionally, by carefully selecting properties in areas with strong population growth, retirees can also create multi-generation wealth by leveraging the appreciation of their assets. When done correctly, retirement investing in multifamily real estate can be a powerful tool for creating long-term financial security.--------------------Bio:Yuen Yung, CEO of Casoro Group, Founder and CEO of the franchisor How Do You Roll?Find Yuen on LinkedIn: Group Website:
Dementia is a growing epidemic that affects individuals and families around the world.Despite the billions of dollars funneled into biomedical research, we still don't have a cure for Alzheimer's. In fact, it's becoming increasingly clear that Alzheimer's is not one disease, but rather a syndrome caused by many different age-related processes.We need to take action now if we want to protect our brains and prevent dementia from becoming an even bigger problem. This means making lifestyle changes like exercising more, eating better, and reducing stress. It also means supporting research that looks at the complex causes of dementia and finding new ways to treat it.--------------------Bio:Peter J.

Retirement planning is intimidating, and it's hard to know where to start. Do you feel like you're behind? Are you worried that it's too late to save for retirement?The fact is, there's no one right answer when it comes to how much you need to save for retirement. Depending on your age, income, health, and other factors, you may need more or less than the average person.If you're not saving adequately for retirement, then you're setting yourself up for a difficult future. You may have to work longer than you'd like or make significant cuts to your lifestyle in retirement.If you are a baby boomer, did you save enough for retirement? The answer is dependent on what you mean by "adequate."Americans have traditionally relied on Social Security, private pensions, and personal savings to secure their retirement income. This system has served the seniors well Since World War II.But the future is uncertain. The baby boomer generation has created a long-term imbalance in Social Security. Even if privatization is used, the solution must reduce benefits or raise taxes. Since workers can access their pension funds earlier, the future of private pensions is uncertain. Personal saving has been stagnant for over a decade. Savings account for retirement has virtually vanished.Baby Boomers are retiring in large numbers. Many do not have enough saved for their retirement. Beyond a lack of planning, a key reason that Baby Boomers lack retirement savings are due to the 2008 financial crisis, the global pandemic as well as chronic low-interest rates.With an increasing number of Americans retiring each year, there is a greater emphasis on retirement literacy. The time has come for retirees and pre-retirees to gain the knowledge they need to make sound financial decisions in retirement. It is critical to have a plan in place to ensure that you are on track for a secure retirement.Today my guest is Anne Lester, a former portfolio manager and Head of Retirement Solutions for JPMorgan Asset Management’s Solutions group - retired in 2020.--------------------Bio:Anne Lester is a former portfolio manager and Head of Retirement Solutions for JPMorgan Asset Management’s Solutions group - retired in 2020.

Before the pandemic, the idea of aging in place was becoming more popular. Some baby boomers are now wary of nursing homes, where at least one-third of U.S. Covid-19 deaths have occurred, so they are interested in aging in place. The trend is making home shortages and prices even worse for younger buyers who want to get a piece of the real estate wealth.The Silent Generation (born before 1946) had long owned the majority of real estate wealth, but they sold later in life and moved in with extended family, or to an assisted-living community. Baby Boomers living in their homes are bucking the trend. A study from the Federal Reserve data shows that boomers surpassed the Silent Generation in real estate wealth in 2001 and have yet to relinquish it.Despite their fears, baby boomers built wealth by investing in the stock market and purchasing real estate. They benefited from the 1980s bull market, which saw share prices soar and trading volume soar as more buyers entered the market.Joining me in conversation is Joe Anfuso, CFO MG Properties, who will share insights into the efforts of owning and operating over $7 billion valued multifamily real estate.--------------------Bio:Joe Anfuso is a proven and nationally recognized Financial, Operational, and Customer-Centric leader experienced in single and multifamily residential development in California and Nevada.

As a society, we are living longer due to better living and health care. While reaching old age is something to be thankful for, there are several challenges facing the seniors that we should all be aware of. We don't realize how much we can help our aging population until we start to age or see a loved one struggle.Here are a few of the concerns that seniors face as we live longer: Memory loss, Dementia or Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson’s disease; Inability to drive or travel independently; Hearing loss, Vision problems, including blindness; Falls resulting to injuries; Chronic pain, arthritis; Depression and loneliness; Social isolation; Financial insecurity; Scams and abuse. Many are the social determinants of health.It is common for seniors to develop chronic disease as they age. But not all seniors have equal access to care. During the pandemic, there is a growing gap and disparity in care, which has exacerbated under stress. And it's more common in medically underserved seniors than in the general population.--------------------Bio:Dr. Leith States, the Chief Medical Officer in the Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health.

When it comes to aging in America, there are many issues that seniors face. These include brain health/ dementia, to a broad spectrum of issues to affordable housing with services. You should also know what type of retirement community best suits your needs based on location and budget, from aging at home or Independent Living to Memory Care.Seniors face numerous obstacles as they age, including the possibility of becoming disabled or losing a spouse. They must also consider how society will care for them in the future.Seniors and their families will need to consider the following at some point: How are assisted living and long-term care different? What does long-term care entail? What services are provided by long-term care? How do you plan for the possibility of long-term care? What characteristics define a quality long-term care community?Join me in conversation is Lou Woolf, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Hebrew SeniorLife.--------------------Bio:Louis J.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that is rapidly overtaking Alzheimer's disease as the most common.It's a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement and can lead to tremors, slowness of movement, stiffness in the limbs and trunk, balance problems, and difficulty walking. There is no cure for this disease but there are many ways to manage it.PD has many problems for our society, from caregiver stress to hospitalization costs, but our understanding of genetic and environmental causes is slowly upgrading them to the level of diseases - 'a much-needed step towards precision medicine.'Precision medicine offers the hope of tailored treatments for each individual, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. We hope that by increasing our understanding of PD we can create better treatments and hopefully one day a cure.Join me in conversation with Dr. Alfonso Fasano, Professor of Medicine, Neurology University of Toronto.--------------------Bio:Dr. Alfonso Fasano is a renowned and award-winning neurologist, scientist, and researcher.

Do you want to live a long and healthy life?Preventable Services, Annual Wellness Visits, and Advanced Care Planning can make a world of difference in the quality and length of our lives.Prevention is often cheaper than cure.Preventive health care is an important part of living well.

Do you feel like your brain is constantly in overdrive?You’re not alone. We live in a world of constant stimulation, and it takes its toll on our brains. This can have some adverse effects on seniors if they don't have proper mental wellness.With the constant pressure to keep up, it's no wonder that many seniors are in danger of experiencing poor brain health.But there are ways to bring emotional and spiritual balance back into your life. And the first step is understanding how neuroscience has uncovered the spiritual capacity and underpinnings of the human brain.Once we understand that our brains have an innate ability to be balanced, we can begin to take steps towards bringing more peace into our lives by taking care of ourselves with mindfulness practices that help us tap into this part of ourselves again.These practices include meditation, yoga, breathing exercises, journaling, exercise – anything that helps us connect with what matters most to us as individuals so we can find inner peace.Joining me in conversation today is Dr. Paul Nussbaum.--------------------Bio:Dr. Nussbaum is a Board Certified Clinical and Geropsychology Neuropsychologist with a specialization in aging, brain health, and lifestyle management.Find Dr. Nussbaum on LinkedIn:
Most of us have our own ideas about what senior living communities are like. Some believe that senior living community is interchangeable with the term nursing home but they are in fact two very different options for seniors. While many leading senior living communities do provide higher-level healthcare services and assistance found in traditional nursing homes, they offer seniors so much more than simply age-related support.The truth is that many people choose to live in an independent lifestyle setting because they want more out of life. Independent senior living offers more freedom and independence while still providing access to on-site health care providers as needed.Senior Living communities today focus greatly on helping seniors maintain their quality of life by offering amenities such as fitness centers, pools, spas, dining options and so much more!

The generation gap is real. And it poses challenges for leaders in the workplace, especially when working with different age groups of employees who have very different perspectives on how to approach their careers and responsibilities at work.This is particularly true for senior living communities.Bridging the generational gap in senior living is necessary for society to thrive. Often, generations feel segregated by age and miss out on precious opportunities that come with being connected across different eras of life experiences.We need connections between our elders as well as young adults because they are both integral parts who contribute greatly towards shaping America into what it will be tomorrow.We believe in the power of relationships, and we know that when people from different generations come together, they can create something truly special.Join me in conversation today is Allison Boulware.--------------------Bio:SVP and Chief Wellness Officer at Bridge Senior Living; Allison Boulware is a Clinical Strategist with a fierce passion to change the dialogue in senior living.An innovative thinker is eager to solve complex challenges, execute plans and implement technology to transform healthcare.

Do you have a loved one that is currently on Medicare? Or do you work in the senior care industry helping seniors set up their MA plans?If so, then you know how confusing it can be to navigate the maze of Medicare Advantage. There are just too many options and not enough information out there to help seniors make an informed decision;  Seniors are more likely to feel like they are victims instead of empowered. There are so many different plans, carriers, and deductibles. Picking the wrong one will cause you financial ruin! With so much to consider it can be hard to know where to start.Senior often find themselves in this situation. They are given a long booklet about insurance, but they are not told which one to buy. The booklet is 150+ pages long, so it is hard for them to understand it. Then they have to compare all the different plans which include prescription drug coverage, vision or dental care, gym memberships, or even travel discounts. The key is finding one that provides what you need at an affordable price without sacrificing the quality of service.Join me in a conversation with Danielle Roberts.
