What do you think about growing older? We all have different views on aging. The famous painter Pablo Picasso said, “We don’t grow older, we grow riper.” Well, as we ripen on the vines of life, what’s on your mind about growing older? The Best Times host Cris Hardaway will lead a panel discussion with people “Talking Aging.”

If you have a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia, then you know the pain of no longer being able to share a lifetime of memories with the person you love. The disease slowly erases those shared experiences. But science is discovering more about the regions of the brain that are the last to be affected by the disease. And music seems to be able to unlock a door that allows the person inside to come out again. Host Cris Hardaway explores the music therapy that is literally “The Soundtrack of Life.”

Volunteering can give you that warm, fuzzy feeling you get when you help someone. But there are tangible benefits as well. Volunteering can teach you new skills, help you stay active and fill your retirement hours. It can even help you make new friends. The need for volunteers is great, so why not discover the “Power of Volunteerism.” In addition, host Cris Hardaway will take a look at the human drama recounted in historian Patrick O’Daniel’s book “Memphis and the Super Flood of 1937.”
