Show: Ask Dr. DeSilva
Dr. Eric Shapira
One hundred years ago people died at the average age of 47 years. Today we are living longer lives, well into our 80s and beyond. You may ask, how do I navigate the aging process successfully? It is not easy. Today many people are too encumbered and trying to survive financially, struggling with family pressures and parents who need help. They neglect taking care of themselves and end up aging prematurely. Clinical Gerontologist Dr. Eric Shapira joins the show to help guide us through the aging process.
Dr. Shapira counsels individuals and families who are in need of a caring ear, providing information regarding such topics as the death and dying part of life; writing a legacy; dealing with important documents; what to do with respect to taxes and probate; the grieving process; sex and intimacy issues like dating again after the death of a spouse; how to choose an ideal partner; maintaining intimacy with a compromised spouse; senior dating issues, just to name a few.
