The Path of Purposeful Aging with Richard Leider

What are we to do to survive and, even, thrive in this volatile, uncertain pandemic world? In a world where we can no longer be secure or certain, how can we find some sense of certainty? The pandemic changed everything for almost everyone. We endlessly hear the downside of this crisis. That’s one way to look at it but, there is also an upside. We can grow from this crisis.

The science of purpose shows that having a WHY to exist, whatever the level of adversity we face, is universal and fundamental to both surviving and thriving. Purpose is NOT a trend nor a luxury, today. In fact, it is FUNDAMENTAL to our health, healing, happiness, community, and, even, longevity! What makes you want to get out of bed in the morning? These days the answer to that question might seem more difficult than ever to answer.

During this program, you will:

  • Take a “Purpose Checkup”
  • Experience three steps to unlocking your purpose
  • Learn three practices to live and work in ways that fit with your purpose

Elderhood: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, Reimagining Life with Louise Aronson

Physician and Award-winning author, Dr. Louise Aronson, a noted Harvard- trained geriatrician will discuss her book, Elderhood: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, Reimagining Life, and provide an essential, empathic look at a vital but often disparaged stage of life. She will share stories from her personal and professional life, and, drawing from history, science, literature, and popular culture, offer a powerful roadmap for how we can approach old age–full of joy, wonder, frustration, and outrage. She offers hope about aging, medicine, and humanity itself.

With modern increases in human lifespans, the period of elderhood-what Aronson calls the third and final stage of life, after childhood and adulthood-may now span forty or more years of our lives. But in American society, at the very moment that we are living longer than ever before, we have turned old age into a disease, a condition to be dreaded, disparaged, neglected, and denied, as we try to avoid the signs of our own aging and mortality.

From her personal and professional experiences, she envisions a large-scale shift in society’s – and medicine’s – attitude toward aging, made up of crucial adjustments in how we see the changes in each other’s and our own bodies, how we care for older people, how we set doctors’ salaries and bill patients, and ultimately, how we conceive of the final third of life: not as an ending or decline, but as yet another stage of life with its hardships and challenges, opportunities and joys.

In this program, you will be challenged to:

  • Re-examine the meaning of aging
  • Recognize how our views of aging and medical practices reflect a broken system that often exacerbates problems of aging.
  • Reframe our later decades to better prepare for and thrive in those final years.
  • Transform our views about aging and lead us to make different choices for ourselves and in policy, ones that improve the experience of elderhood.
