Normal Aging – Followup

Normal Aging – Followup

Just a brief note this week about our Normal vs. Not Normal Aging class we had here at Stillwaters this week.  The topic was all about what is normal and not, and for many of us it was reassuring to know that our forgetfulness and slower processing is truly normal aging.

Teepa Snow

The presenters from the Lewis Mason Thurston Area Agency on Aging provided context and discussion around a set of videos by Teepa Snow.  Snow is an internationally recognized educator and consultant specializing in dementia and brain health.  This presentation was focused on how and why our brain changes naturally as we age and then some tips on recognizing what is not normal aging issues.

Teepa is a very entertaining speaker and was able to share her stories and her knowledge with great deal of humor.  YouTube is loaded with Teepa Snow videos focused on care takers (which is great content) but I did find a couple that might give those who couldn’t be there an opportunity to hear her what she has to say.

This is a short blog this week as life has been very busy here and your blogger is getting ready to go on the road for a week.

Notes and ponderings from the road next week!
