As we get older life can become more challenging.  Hear from experts on how to grow older successfully and happily. Each week will feature a different topic.  We will start with a performance and discussion with members of Shore Shakespeare Company.  Subsequent weeks will include a discussion of the benefits of regular exercise; a panel discussion with local practitioners on the importance of diet, engagement with others; and communication repair strategies when there is hearing loss.

 

A representative from the Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging will visit us on October 4 to report on some of the research findings of a study that has followed participants since 1958.  We will wrap up with a session on mindfulness in daily living.  A practitioner of insight meditation will guide us through simple exercises that can lead to relaxation and a sense of well-being.
