Are You Aging Well?
With the oldest population in Canada, NL is facing huge challenges with seniors and health care. What does it mean to age well? Is it about more than just our physical and mental health? Join Mike as he meets his special guests on the water and in the lab to learn more about healthy aging.
Mike goes sailing with Dr. Ian Landells, a local cosmetic dermatologist who shares a love for the outdoors and physical activity. This provides the perfect setting to discuss how the sun affects our skin and how we can continue to look younger as we age without the fear of skin cancer from sun exposure.
Next, we learn that when it comes to aging, we often focus on the exterior appearance of our bodies, not what’s happening on the inside. Dr. Janna Andronowski, Assistant Professor of Clinical Anatomy at Memorial University, studies the impacts on aging when we care for ourselves from the inside out. Join us as Mike meets her in the university Anatomy Lab to learn more.
Who’s up for a chat and fishing? Brian Henley, President of Alec G Henley & Associates Ltd. invites Mike to join him for a little fishing at beautiful Salmonier Nature Park in Holyrood, NL., where they chat about the importance of financial health in dealing with the challenges of aging. We know that physical and mental health is important, but how do we protect ourselves financially to make our lives easier and more enjoyable as we grow older?
Imagine being 99 and still enjoying your daily walk. Join us as Mike meets up with Maxwell (Max) Kirby, NL track and field Hall of Famer, for a walk and a chat about the simple habits we can adopt to help us maintain our health and positive outlook as we age. Be inspired as Max shares what he has learned from a lifetime of investing in his health.
