Lunch Bunch - West

11:45 a.m. 
Olive Garden (West Towne) 
7017 Mineral Point Road 


SAIL Discussion Group
Friday, July 28
10:00 a.m. 
Heritage Oaks, Oakwood Village University Woods 
6205 Mineral Point Road 

Attendees will discuss the following questions: Is access to quality health care a basic human right, as some contend today? Or, as others contend, is quality health care a privilege rather than right? Is the very term “quality” too vague to be useful here? And in any case, whatever one’s position on this issue, should the debate be framed in moral or in economic or in political terms? Member Fred Ross is will facilitate this first discussion.

This discussion group is a "trial run" and will be offered in the future pending member participation and interest.

Paddle Boarding-A Fun Way to Improve Balance 

SAIL Member Wally Brinkman loves summer weather—it gives her a chance to do her favorite sport—Stand-up Paddle Boarding (SUP).

Wally, age 80, commented: “I started stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) just  four years ago, partly because it is a great way to improve balance and partly because it is fun. I decided that SUP was going to be my next physical challenge.

I had to work at it, fell into the water five times during the first hours to the amusement of some people who were having a picnic at the shore. But I am pretty good at it now. I now own a kayak (my previous physical challenge), a canoe, and 2 paddle boards.”


Wally is living the first tip shared by Frank
Stein, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, at a recent program titled “Complementary and Alternative Medicine Applied to Healthy Aging.” 

While we all can’t go out paddle boarding, we can, however, seek out some form of exercise that is doable and enjoyable. Frank recommends active exercise at least 30 minutes every day.
