Aging Cleverly
How to keep our balance as we age. A few brain games to enhance our word finding and memory skills, some practical strategies for navigating the forgetful terrain of old age, a few songs about aging with humour and acceptance, and lots of shared brainstorming about aging cleverly, with vibrant energy, mental clarity, purpose, and delight.
Nomi Kaston, M.Sc., is a Speech Language Pathologist in private practice, here in Victoria.
She earned her Master of Science degree at McGill University, in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. Her Masters thesis was a study of communication patterns in families of people with Aphasia, the loss of language due to stroke or brain injury. She has served on a Brain Injury rehabilitation team, and served many people with age-related problems in memory, word finding, and interpersonal communicating. Her greatest credential for addressing this topic, though, is that she turned 65 this month, and is taking lessons in gracious, clever aging from her own parents, Murray and Eleanor Enkin. Nomi will entertain us and inspire us to live all the days of our life.
Refreshments will be served.
Everyone is welcome.
