Throwing the gauntlet at mainstream care practices, Bettinger describes compelling examples […]

“Well, there is magic in the air!” My Lyft driver greeted me with enthusiasm. Her last ride had dropped off at the same terminal and door I was waiting at—a gig economy mini miracle. Little did she know MAGIC really was in the air for me. I had just landed from spending a week working […]

I have struggled with hearing and ear infections all of my conscious life. I tried Western and Eastern remedies and by my early 20s I was burnt out; I stopped trying to fix it and just lived with it. Time went on, and for me life was normal.

Between ChangingAging Tour performances last year year I launched our first Gratitude Tour. I travelled up the West Coast (San Francisco to Portland) with a small group and every day we stopped at Independent Living communities along the way. Our mission— express gratitude for the elders we met along the way, and the people whose daily work makes the lives of those elders better.
