Getting There
Getting There engages those 50+ in the issues, opportunities and community resources for vital living.

Below is a list of broadcasts scheduled to air in the next 60 days on any of our three channels.

Episode #403
Families Giving Care
Do you see yourself as a care giver? Did you know that most people who are care giving for someone do not self identify that way? So many of us are focused on the person needing care that we can forget the toll care giving can put on the individuals and families around them. And as a result we often miss out of help and resources that are available to care givers. Thus, stress, lack of resources and time constraints create their own dynamics for families giving care. Host Jan Smaby facilitates a fascinating exploration of these issues and uncovers important resources with help from expert Elaine Spain from the MN River Agency on Aging.

Aging in Place
There are many more ways than we can imagine to stay in our home as we age. Learn more about things you might never have known before - helpful "gadgets" that make everyday activities easier, removing items that might trigger falls and architectural modifications to kitchens and bathrooms. Aging in place allows many to stay closer to family and friends, and to enjoy the comforts of home. There are more options for those who can't stay at home than most of us know. A lively discussion, looks into the community and the expert advice of Julie Murray from Ecumen all come together with host Jan Smaby and friends.

Episode #402
Healthy Brains
The brain still holds many mysteries; however, scientists are learning more about what keeps a brain healthy and active that we all should know for taking personal action. Mediation, creative pursuits, social interaction, lifelong learning, physical exercise and more are all taken into consideration. While none of these activities may fully prevent disease such as Alzheimer's, they certainly are proving more important to brain health and prevention or postponement of brain-related illnesses than we have ever understood before. Host Jan Smaby joined by other curious lifelong learners ponder new insights and understandings in conversation together and with Dr. Ron Peterson of the Mayo Clinic.
