Newton resident Bobbie Steinbach is an active part of Boston's theater scene. She's also lent her talents to classes at NewBridge on the Charles! Steinbach, who didn't start acting until age 35, is keeping busy by appearing in many of greater Boston's professional productions--most recently Huntington Theatre Company's "Sunday in the Park with George." Read the Milford Daily News' profile of Steinbach here: http://bit.ly/2ddg2aH

News out of the Institute for Aging Research (IFAR) regarding the use of feeding tubes in advanced dementia patients made a big splash in the media recently. Featured in The New York Times and other publications, the research yielded by our scientists showed that dementia patients did not benefit from tube feeding in the late stage of their disease, and in many cases the feeding tubes proved to be a detriment to their health. This research has now been adopted as best care practice in treating patients with dementia—a perfect example of how aging research comes full circle to benefit older adults.

Recently, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) highlighted the dramatic decrease in feeding tube use by patients with end stage dementia over the last 15 years.

At HSL EngAGE we’ll be talking about how seniors are using the arts to heal, to explore new passions, to make friends and engage with their communities. Want to live a more creative life? Check out these 7 tips to increase creativity: http://bit.ly/2d6FM8r

While it can be tempting to get stuck in a routine rut, seniors can benefit from fostering a creative mind with new experiences and ideas. From art and music to creative writing, there are endless options.
