Cooking & Food: Challenges for Living at Home? (Cincinnati)

This is a 2nd discussion surrounding the general topic of Cooking and Food and the Challenges of Aging.  The Sequoias SF, SF Village Explorers explored this at length last year; our Cincinnati group broached the same topics about a year later.  Both are interesting and educational discussions!



Cognitive Aging, Cincinnati

The suggested topic from one of our Explorers was “Aging minds; mental health concerns; brain diseases; brain exercises.”  Our Explorers talk about a number of examples of ‘normal forgetting’, as well as tips and suggestions on how to combat or deal with this natural aging phenomenon.

Vitamins and Nutrition

The suggested topic from one of our Explorers was “Vitamins: What to take; what to stay away from.”  Our Explorers weigh in on a number of vitamin-related issues in this wide-ranging discussion.  Overall, vitamin information and knowledge can be confusing and you may run across some mixed messages.

‘Remaining Independent’ Morphs Into ‘End-of-Life’ Plans & Wishes

Preventing falling is quickly acknowledged as important for older adults.  Then our discussion morphs into a focus on end-of-life planning and issues.

Hearing and Hearing Aids - Bayley July 2019 by Longevity Explorers | Recent @ Cincinnati

Hearing and hearing aids are practical topics for our group for a lot of reasons: We want everyone in the meeting to hear what's going on, and we're concerned about costs, insurance, and just learning more about this industry.



Chronic Fatigue, Dementia, & More @ Cincinnati

We explore “chronic fatigue syndrome”, along with some of the unique challenges faced by older women when dealing with medical professionals.  Then we explore our mental capabilities as we age: What constitutes ‘normal forgetting’ and early dementia?  Finally, we devote a few minutes to good habits to consider when aging, as well as some mention of helpful devices that can help us better adapt.



Learning Styles for New Technology @ Cincinnati

Learning Styles for New Technology.  This discussion concerns the challenges that older adults experience learning how to use new technology and new tech-oriented products.  They also suggest a few ideas to help improve technology instruction and assistance.



A Few Minutes Brainstorming Our Own Topic Ideas

For the last part of our inaugural Explorer meeting, after listening to and lightly discussing a variety of aging topics explored by other LE groups, we spent a little time talking about what aging topics we were interested in further exploring in the future. A wide variety of possibilities were mentioned.



First Cincinnati Longevity Explorer Meeting

This is an audio segment from the first Longevity Explorer meeting for the Cincinnati circle held in March, 2019. For this meeting, since all of us were new, we purposely took a more basic and introductory approach in our agenda.  Instead of more in-depth discussions and explorations on a few aging topics, our circle broached a larger number of aging topics but only in a cursory or introductory manner; some of which will undoubtedly be explored in greater depth at future meetings.

Our basic goals for this introductory meeting were exposure to some aging topic possibilities, practice framing topics into specifics relevant to us, and to begin to establish a 'learning, sharing, and open-minded' discussion environment for our group. 

We thought it was a good first meeting.
