Life Transitions

Tuesdays at 8:45 a.m. and Fridays at 6:45 a.m.

Old age is a life-stage that re-defines life priorities -- and it needs to be addressed in a functional way.

Life Transitions examines the issues of aging; from social, to behavioral, environmental, financial, and health issues.

Discussions focus on the positive as well as the stressful aspects of the aging process, with professionals, caregivers, and the elderly themselves, working to “demystify” the aging process and present old age in a positive way without minimizing the reality of aging.

Life Transitions is produced with the generous support of Heart of Hospice.

Do you know what your age is? Is that a silly question? Maybe or maybe not!

Do our birthdays determine our age? Or do our wrinkles? Or our energy levels? Or our ability to meet our  goals?  It all depends on how you define “age.”

Can we say that age is how old you feel?  More than other people’s perceptions, our own perception of ourselves determines how old we look and feel.  So is it perceptions alone that determine our age? Not really!

People say that ignorance is blissful. 

Unfortunately, ignorance can become hurtful if it creates negative stereotypes.  Ageism is prejudice and discrimination based on negative stereotypes of old age.

Life is a sum total of all our experiences, our growth and development, our hopes and our disappointments. 

It's a movement from conception to death. We move from one transitory stage of development to the next transitory stage.

As we move through in life, we learn to deal with our life experiences in our own functional or dysfunctional way.
