Sleep Better: Solutions to Common Sleep Problems in Older Adults - Aging Well

Did you know that 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders and wakefulness and for 60% of these people it is a chronic condition? Not getting enough sleep can lead to increased hypertension, heart-related diseases, stroke and weight gain. We need sleep because it restores our bodies, improves learning, improves memory and helps in preventing illness. Attendees of May’s program will hear from Andrew Namen, MD, Wake Forest Baptist Health who will present, “Age Well - Sleep Better: Solutions to Common Sleep Problems in Older Adults”. 

Straight from the pages of Our State Magazine (March 2021), AgingWell is delighted to present Executive Chef Lil Lacassagne, who along with his wife Lori are the co-owners of Saint Jacques Restaurant in the picturesque Burke Manor Inn in Gibsonville, NC. Chef Lil will be showing participants how to create the perfect Beef Bourguignon. Attendees will feel as if they are in one of Chef Lil’s popular cooking classes as he shares his stories and some of his favorite kitchen tips for a perfect meal!

We all know that to “Age Well” we must be able to move well. For May’s AgingWell program we are featuring Carlo Davids, MS, who received his Master’s Degree from Wake Forest University in Health and Exercise Science and is a Certified Clinical Exercise Physiologist. Carlo is a Patient Health Educator/ Interventionist with the US POINTER study. Carlo will be demonstrating a series of flexibility exercises designed to keep everyone moving and feeling great!
