Rita Altman – Sunrise Senior Living & Go4Life
Fitness Friday Interview with Rita Altman
Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, I’m host Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode 258. That’s right, Get Ready! Today’s show is part of our Fitness Friday Go4Life Month celebration series, and it’s another great one in our Fitness Friday programs.
Do you want to learn easy ways to increase your activity level in everyday life? The National Institute on Aging, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is launching its annual Go4Life Month in September 2018. This year’s theme is “Get Ready! Get Moving! Go4Life!” The program offers free resources to help older adults work out a bit more, push themselves a little harder and try all types of exercise.
And this week we’re focused staying on track to Go4Life! We’ve asked NIA, Go4Life partner, Rita Altman, from Sunrise Senior Living to join us. This will be another fun, eye opening conversation because Rita Altman is the Sr. VP for Memory Care and Program Services at Sunrise Senior Living. As all of you in The Not Old Better audience know, this is a favorite subject of mine, and memory, or losing it, is one of the top 10 concerns of adults over age 60.
We’ll also be joined by Go4Life director, Stephanie Dailey. Stephanie Dailey works closely with the NIA partners, like the Sunrise Senior Living Centers to better understand the aging process, as well as diseases and conditions that can occur as we grow older. Go4Life is an evidence based exercise program. An evidence-based program is a program that has been rigorously evaluated in other words, it has been shown that it is supported by data, not just based on theory.
Please join me in welcoming via internet phone, Stephanie Dailey and Rita Altman.
