Avoiding institutionalized care and remaining an active and integral part of community is what most people hope for in later years. So why is it so difficult? On The Point, we talk about changing the culture of aging, and new housing options that keep people empowered, connected and contributing members of the community.
Guests on the program are:
Dr. Bill Thomas, geriatrician, professor, entrepreneur, playwright, and performer.
Renee Lohman, President and CEO of Navigator Elder Homes of New England.
Matthew Trimble, President and CEO of St. Elizabeth’s Community in Rhode Island.
Mindy Todd hosts.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
