How you age is up to you…It is the newest product and service that can do and lead you to a ‘Masterful life’
Not genes, luck or fate!
Masterpiece Life – a journey to a longer, healthier and a happier life.

Why listen to this episode? Roger and I talk about these topics
Still Saying “Still?” Stop it!
We hear it all the time, people bragging about their 95-year-old uncle who “still” drives a car or their 80-year-old neighbor who “still” rides her bicycle five miles each day. What’s so bad about that? Click below for a special message from Dr. Roger about the dangers of using the word “still” to describe an activity enjoyed by an older adult.
My granddaughter, Abby, just got a puppy for her 10th birthday, and the transformation over her family has been inspiring. Whether we are caring for a pet, a plant, or another person, we can’t help but feel a sense of purpose and belonging in the world around us. It is that connection that gives our life meaning.
“Do I Have Dementia?”
How many times have you forgotten where you placed your keys, or walked into a room only to forget why you went there in the first place? When we’re teenagers, we don’t give it another thought. However, with age, we begin to ask ourselves, “Is this a sign I’m developing dementia?” Please watch my short message below to learn what is normal forgetfulness vs. a sign of cognitive impairment.
Loneliness, is it an epidemic and what can we do about it?
