A Few of Our Concerns: Online Fear, Built-in Obsolescence, Dealing with Scams

We are a new Longevity Explorer group: The Bayley Longevity Explorers in Cincinnati, Ohio.  This discussion segment is our first ‘real’ more involved, in-depth, and meaningful discussion as an Explorer group.  It was a very good first meeting!  This discussion segment is about some of the concerns our explorers have: Online Fear, Built-in Obsolescence, and Dealing with Scams

 


 

Older Adult Boxing, Senior Olympics

The Cincinnati (Bayley) Longevity Explorers talk about the importance of being physically active; especially as older adults.  A couple of Explorers very fondly talk about the boxing classes they are currently taking.  Tai Chi and wishing for a Cincinnati-hosted Senior Olympics are also mentioned. 

 


 

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.

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.
