In light of the death of Robon Williams, the topic of depression has received some attention. Depression is a real condition that affects millions of people, many of them older adults. Let's talk about depression on the next episode of Discussions with Delia.
Suicide can sometimes be the unfortunate outcome of depression, join us for a serious discussion. No, talking about suicide does not encourage it.
eCareDiary's caregiving expert, Margery Pabst will speak to Dr. Jeffrey Levine, geriatrician at Mt. Sinai Hospital and photographer about ageism and opportunities for caregivers to change perceptions towards older loved adults.
Matthew Silva of the Midwest Institute for Addiction, talks about common addictions among older adults and how their institute assists in helping caregivers to advocate for them.
Matthew Silva earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling and Masters in Business Administration. Matt is also a Certified Reciprocal Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. He considers himself extremely fortunate to have been able to study and be supervised by Jack Platt, an extremely brilliant and nationally recognized therapist.
He struggled with a personal addiction which began a journey into his own recovery and a new love for life. This journey was the start of a desire to learn more about addictions so that he could assist others.
He has worked at BJC Behavioral Health as a Community Support worker, SSM St Joseph Hospital as a Psychiatric Therapist, and Director/Service Coordinator of SSM New Vision Detoxification unit. More recently he served as a substance abuse counselor and Vice President of Operational Affairs for Assisted Recovery Centers of America.
One of Matt's more recent projects was the co-founding of the Temperance House, which has been a successful transitional home for individuals in recovery. After the launch of the Temperance House and achieving his MBA in 2011, Matt made the decision to use his knowledge and expertise to develop an optimum and comprehensive treatment center now known as Midwest Institute for Addiction.

We will go into details on relationships between older men and younger men. We will also talk why we think older women are into younger men. What do they have in common? What's the attraction? How older is too old? How young is too young? Are these relationships motivated by money and greed? Are they genuinely in love? These are some of the questions we want answered. If you think you have the answers, feel free to call in and let us know.
Throwing a Monkey wrench into the plans of the New World Order, Through Enlightenment, Information, and a linking back to WHO we truly are!
This week, where are all the adults in the room? As the world continues to spin wildly out of control on all fronts, the "leaders" behave like Children in a kindergarden class. The answers to all this are up to us.
What are some of the special challeges involved with caring for older pets? Many times when we take on the responsibility of caring for a new pet, we forget that as time goes on, our beloved friends will inevitably grow older--and with advancing age comes special care that may not have been needed when they were younger. Some of the same ills that older humans suffer from can affect our pets: arthritis, diabetes, (and certain cancers and tumors are more common in dogs or cats as they age). In this episode, we will explore ways that you can be better prepared to give your pets the best care possible in their golden years, and to keep them healthy as long as possible. So please tune in to our June 26th episode at 5PM, CST on The Missy Show.
Cliff Stewart, Wayne Wright, Lisa Stewart and Jynel Gaulden of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Cliff, Wayne, Lisa and Jynel will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an innocent person.
Our Special Guests for tonight's show are Ryan Ferguson and his Dad Bill Ferguson, along with Professor Simon Cole at UCI Social Ecology School. They will all be sharing their thoughts on the impact of kids being incarcerated and released back into society, as adults.

It is important to raise awareness about college-age adults entering this new world of independence, learning and exploration, especially those in the cleft and craniofacial community. This week's "CleftCast" continues "The Healthy Smile" series, giving attention and emphasis on the college years. Host Joe Rutland shares personal stories as well as insights into different subjects that might trigger (in a healthy way) helpful ideas and ways to get through the college years with a craniofacial anomaly. One thing is for sure: these college-age years will not be dull and boring. Some will find new energy for life; others may still be haunted from their past. The hope is to build an educational and emotional foundation that not only carries forward from high school into college, yet into further adult development. Embrace the special wonder that is you ... no matter where you are in life as you download and listen to "CleftCast" any time of the day or night, anywhere around the world.

production info:episode 27 Getting Older 8/18/14
Tonight we are talking about growing older and how it affects us. We live in an age where people seem obsessed with staying young and living forever. But the truth is we all age.... and age can be a positive and negative experience.
You know you're getting older when you've heard yourself say, "Because I told you so!"
There are 3 Ages of Men and Women: youth, middle age, and you look good!
Remember when...memory was something you lost with age. An application was for employment. A program was a TV show. A cursor used profanity. A keyboard was a piano, A web was a spider's home. A virus was the flu. A CD was a bank account. A hard drive was a long trip on the road. A mouse pad was where a mouse lived and if you had a 3-inch floppy . . . You just hoped nobody ever found out!
So let's talk about growing older, adjusting to life changes and how this affects our love relationships.
