Running with Scissors...

A humorous but thought provoking look at why we often have great intentions for improving health, yet have a noticeable gap between intentions and actions. This session explores how media images, social programs, cultural myths, and personal experiences weave a subconscious aging story that impacts health beliefs, behaviors and outcomes. It also describes the top 3 things you absolutely must do to age with vitality and purpose for your full lifespan

Aging – It’s a Family Affair

This thought-provoking seminar explores aging as a multi-generational, not a solitary, pursuit. We learn about aging from our parents and grandparents, and our children learn about aging from us. Kay explores common “aging scripts” and how they impact choices, behaviors, and outcomes. She also helps attendees explore their own family aging scrips and offers practical strategies to help build a family culture of well-being; one that sustains a positive quality of life through health challenges and life transitions.

A Culture of Wellbeing

This seminar describes how to keep the demands of managing health challenges from becoming the dominant culture of care (in congregate living or a single-family home), and offers practical strategies to consciously create a culture of well-being. Kay will offer a clear roadmap and simple tools to use today, tomorrow and next week to create connection, community, hope and joy in spite of challenges.

Creating Your Personal Vitality Portfolio®

The Vitality Portfolio® approach to optimal aging uses the familiar structure of a financial portfolio – make a plan, balance your (vitality) assets, and make regular deposits to support lifelong health. Attendees will gain simple tools and a practical roadmap to create their own personal Vitality Portfolio®. This proprietary concept is featured in a chapter written for an upcoming book by Chicken Soup for the Soul author, Jack Canfield.
