Get your aging attitude adjusted: Public is invited
Serving Our Seniors
JUL 29, 2015
You may have heard it said that “Aging Ain’t for Sissies.” So it is with Parkinson’s Disease. Parkinson’s Disease does not affect only people of “older age.” According to WEB MD, “most Parkinson’s occur after age 50, however the illness does occur in people between 30 and 50.”
Later life is hard enough… being told that you will have to live with a chronic illness, as you age, can be all the reason one may need to: “throw-in-the-towel,” expect less from yourself, adopt a “why bother” attitude, or worse – give up completely.
If I have just described you, or someone you know, mark your calendar for 3 p.m Aug. 6, at Firelands Regional Medical Center South Campus, 1912 Hayes Ave., Sandusky. It is there that you will receive a FREE attitude adjustment – by motivational speaker and Parkinson’s patient, John Bauman. This is brought to you, compliments of the Erie County Parkinson’s Support Group and the Zion Lutheran Church Foundation Board.
John Baumann is an attorney, author, and motivational speaker who has had Parkinson’s Disease since he was in his 30s. He will inspire you as he explains how how he embraced adversity as opposed to letting adversity embrace him.
Parkinson’s Disease affects the nervous system. It causes tremors, the muscles become rigid, slow to move, balance becomes impaired and over time speech can become slurred. Despite all of this, he is a real shot in-the-arm to any and all who have heard him speak. You don’t have to have Parkinson’s Disease to leave feeling inspired. He talks about choosing to live an amazing life with Parkinson’s Disease – or any other life-changing experience that is confronting you.
The reason John’s message should be of interest to people ages 60 and older is two-fold:
1. The longer one lives the higher the risk of acquiring a chronic or debilitating illness.
2. Research studies have found to “age successfully” requires older adults to continually engage with life and participate in personal growth opportunities. Listening to John Bauman is a life-engaging and a personal growth experience.
