AgeSong BSP will be changing to a more healthful (Mediterranean) diet. A heart-friendly diet consisting of fish, vegetables, fruit, nuts, and beans reduced Alzheimer’s risk by 34 to 48 percent in studies conducted by Columbia University. Studies suggest that people who eat the most fruits and vegetables, especially leafy-greens, may experience a slower rate of cognitive decline and a lower risk for dementia than meat eaters.
Even the Department of Agriculture is now on the side of plant-based diets. Its “Dietary Guidelines” say “vegetarian-style eating patterns have been associated with improved health outcomes” (NYTimes 3/11/12).
AgeSong at Bayside Park celebrates spring with art, music, song, history, and writing from the heart! In this issue, the vocations and avocations of our creative residents are featured. We discover what our strengths and talents were then and what they are now. We give you a glimpse into what makes this elder community special by sharing lifetimes of experience and wisdom.
Thirteen young clinicians, rich in life experience and education, offer emotional, relational and behavioral support to those who wish it at AgeSong, Bayside Park’s assisted living and elder community. All of the interns facilitate groups and help create the conditions for growth, learning and healing. From the Laughter group and Meditation to Expressive Arts therapy, Psychology of Aging discussions and the Men’s and Women’s lunch gatherings, they work to create opportunities for the residents to share and be enriched by the vast experience of the AgeSong residents.

The American Counseling Association, the worlds largest counseling organization, opposes some revisions to the main diagnostic tool used in mental health. According to Rebecca Daniel-Burke, staff liaison on the ACA DSM task force, “in general, counselors are against pathologizing or ‘medicalizing’ clients with diagnoses as we prefer to view clients from a strength-based approach and avoid the stigma that is often associated with mental health diagnoses.” (Bass, November 28, 2011).
