ANTHONY CIRILLO: The Aging Experience, Just Rock It!
Smiles, Aging, & the Healthcare ExperienceAnthony Cirillo is the founder of The Aging Experience where he helps seniors and caregivers live a quality life through education on aging – physical, emotional, and financial. Anthony is the author of a blog, Educated Aging, and a book called, Who Moved My Dentures? where he dispels myths about aging. He is a speaker for healthcare professionals and consumers including the Cleveland Clinic, American College of Healthcare Executives, Leading Age, the National Council on Aging and many more. Anthony’s Caregiver Support Program is a 30-day video opportunity for family caregivers that could use a little extra love and support. Anthony says it will take you from “surviving to thriving.” I think we all know at least one person who could use extra love and support as they care for someone else. I know I do. It’s not an easy job, but an important one. You might consider gifting this to someone you love. Another gift for someone you love or even yourself is the Caregiver Smile Summit is a virtual conference to help you thrive as a caregiver. It’s loaded with 50+ experts and you can watch and learn at your own convenience.
