Another Year in The Upside to Aging: A Reflection on An Exciting Two Years!

What We Have Been Up To!

This past year was an exciting one for the blog (and for me!). Through this blog, I’ve been able to speak with so many amazing people working for the betterment of the aging services. I am both humbled and inspired by their missions and fortunate to share their work with all of you!

This year, I started accepting guest post articles, and I’ve been so thankful and amazed at all of the wonderful information our guest post authors have submitted.

One guest post article, The Benefits of Animal Therapy for Older Adults Living with Dementia by guest post author Jackie Gutierrez | St. Paul’s Senior Services was featured in Senior Cares top news for April.

I also started the Let’s Talk, Aging! Series on YouTube.  The series highlights influential people and their projects in the field of aging!  I’ve been inspired by stories from Joyce Williams pen name ‘Grandma Williams’ who is writing to disrupt outdated and offensive stereotypes on aging.

And from Rick O. Weijo whose book Remember Me empowers us to create a legacy for the generations who come after us. Read more – An Interview with Rick O. Weijo: How to Leave your Legacy for Future Generations

Also read An Interview with the AlzAuthors Team, a Collector of Stories and Personal Journey’s through Dementia and Alzheimer’s

I was thrilled to be included as a panel member of the #TalkingTime debate hosted by GE Healthcare, which corresponded with the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) 2018 Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, CA.

And in the news, The Upside to Aging was named 6 Must-Follow Blogs for Seniors by Leisurecare.com and named one of the 50 Aging Influencers You May Not Have Heard Of by Aginginplace.com.

Stay Tuned…and More to Come!

 

I was honored to be a guest on the Parents Are Hard To Raise radio show. My interview with eldercare expert and host Diane Berardi airs in two weeks!  On this episode, I discuss the work we do here on the Upside to Aging and share some easy activity ideas that Caregivers can incorporate into their busy schedules.

I am thankful for the support I’ve received over the past two years and motivated to continue to share the upsides to aging.  The best is yet to come and I will continue to share exciting projects in store for the year ahead.

Thank you for being here and embracing the positive sides of aging!
