This month we are meeting at Kadhai for boutique northern Indian cuisine. Once a month we’ll pick a restaurant and descend en masse – partly for a fun meal out, partly to sample new places (or new choices from old places!), and partly to get to know each other better.

We want to be as flexible as possible – no private room, no fixed menu, and separate checks – just a time to get to know new neighbors. We can swap eating tips, share plates (if the spirit moves you), even swap tables mid-meal if you want! There is seating available outside on the Streetery and a group will also be dining inside.

We’ll have name tags and a sign at the table to help. RSVP is required to co-lead Janet Dante by August 14.

Sometimes, the amount of information coming from a provider to the patient can be overwhelming, and in the heat of the moment, it's easy for patients to forget all the questions they meant to ask the provider. Volunteer medical note-takers can help members organize their questions and then accompany them to appointments to take careful notes and make sure the appointment has a two-way flow of information.

This notetaking training provided by the Executive Director of Northwest Neighbors Village, DC, is open to volunteers from all DC area villages. BMAV volunteers are welcome to join to learn this skill and offer it as part of rides to medical appointments. Those who have not yet volunteered but would like to provide this particular service are also welcome to register.

Learning Objectives:

Understand why medical notes matter in today's healthcare environment
Understand the role of the medical note taker
Understand the differences between medical note taking and medical advocacy
Understand how confidentiality and HIPAA guidelines are applied

RSVP to director@bmavillage.org required. Training materials can be provided to those who cannot attend.

People over the age of sixty-five now outnumber those under the age of five for the first time in human history. Nevertheless, more older adults suffer from feelings of loneliness, boredom, and helplessness. However, older adults who maintain or adopt an art- or music-making practice often experience greater satisfaction in their lives. In this presentation, folklorist Jon Kay shares observations from more than twenty-five years of documenting the expressive lives of elders.

Falls are not a normal part of aging and there are so many things you can do to manage your fall risk! This 60 minute discussion will be lead by two expert physical therapists, Tiffany Shubert, PhD, PT and Vickie Mendes PT. Tiffany will introduce a free resource for you to learn about your own fall risk and what you can do about it. We will learn how to reduce the fear of falling by learning to view falls as controllable, setting goals for increasing activity levels and making small changes to reduce fall risks at home. Vickie will present a series of exercises you can do in your home to improve your strength and balance.

Vickie Mendes is a Certified Otago Physical Therapist. She currently teaches virtual and in-person Otago exercise fall prevention classes to residents of Fearrington Village in Pittsboro, NC. Tiffany Shubert, PhD PT is a physical therapist with over 20 years of clinical experience. She is a leading expert in fall risk management strategies and was the lead disseminator of the Otago Exercise Program, an evidence-based fall prevention program proven to reduce falls by 35% in high risk older adults. Tiffany has been funded by the Centers for Disease Control and the National Council on Aging to research best strategies to empower older adults to manage their fall risk.

The 19th Amendment was an incomplete victory. Black and white women fought hard for voting rights and doubled the number of eligible voters, but the amendment did not enfranchise all women, or even protect the rights of those women who could vote. A century later, women are still grappling with how to use the vote and their political power to expand civil rights, confront racial violence, improve maternal health, advance educational and employment opportunities, and secure reproductive rights. In her book, Formidable: American Women and the Fight for Equality: 1920-2020, Dr. Elisabeth Griffith recounts the roles of Black and White women as change agents and social justice activists and chronicles their efforts to advance sometimes competing causes.

Lafayette’s Farewell Tour saw the 67 year old last surviving major general of the American Revolution triumphantly return to the country he loved. Both Congress and President James Monroe had invited him with the hope that his visit might reignite patriotic fervor in a politically divided America, fast approaching its 50th Anniversary. Lafayette hoped to return to France with the story of a successful democracy. From August 15, 1824 to September 9, 1825, Lafayette covered over 6000 miles by carriage, stagecoach, canal barge, and steamboat, traveling to all 24 exiting states and “Washington City.” Everywhere he went and with a renewed patriotism, Lafayette was met with adoration and accolades as the American hero he was. This presentation will cover the details of Lafayette’s Farewell Tour of America, how it will be celebrated in 2024 – 2025, and how everyone will have the opportunity to get involved. At the young age of 17, Lafayette first fell in love with America.

Dr. Patricia Maclay is a lifetime member of the American Friends of Lafayette and is on both its Governing Board as well as the National Steering Committee for the Bicentennial Celebration of Lafayette’s Farewell Tour scheduled for 2024 – 2025. Beside national presentations, she is responsible for planning both the Lafayette Farewell Tour commemorative visit to Fort McHenry as well as the reenactment of a Joint Session of the U.S. Congress. She also serves on the planning committees for Philadelphia, and New York City.

In DAR, Dr. Maclay is the immediate past Maryland State Historian and is now State Chair for the DAR Leadership Training Courses. She also serves as National Vice Chair for the DAR’s commemoration of the Lafayette.

All BMAV members are warmly invited to attend this popular shared interest discussion group led by Chris Palmer.

So many of us die badly and expensively -- in fear, in pain, hooked up to tubes and ventilators, being overtreated, and in an ICU instead of being surrounded by loved ones at home. We can do much better, but to do better (i.e., die peacefully, gently, painlessly, and with life tasks completed) requires planning and forethought.

Talking about death and dying may seem like a challenging conversation, but in our Aging Well meetings, it is fascinating, constructive, and useful.

Join Chevy Chase At Home village to hear Dr. Nathan Billig discuss his memoir “Untangling Lives: A Psychiatrist Remembers.” Dr. Billig was a founding member of the Board of Directors and past president of Chevy Chase At Home, as well as Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown University School of Medicine. Dr. Billig grew up in New York City, attended Queens College of the City University of New York, and the Upstate Medical University. He trained in psychiatry at the Bronx Municipal Hospital Center/Albert Einstein Medical Center and Georgetown University.

In his memoir, Dr. Billig discusses several themes, based on his long career as a clinician, researcher and educator in psychiatry. He stresses not only the importance of untangling patients’ lives, but also the necessity for therapists to be aware of the narratives of their own lives so they can separate them from those of their patients. “Untangling Lives” brings the reader into the lives and struggles of four "patient" case studies, lining those up with the author’s own psychiatric explorations.

Dr. Billig’s book is an accessible, personal and compassionate look at the need to recognize losses and other traumas so that they don’t become life-long themes.

Topic TBD.

All BMAV members are warmly invited to attend this popular shared interest discussion group led by Chris Palmer.

So many of us die badly and expensively -- in fear, in pain, hooked up to tubes and ventilators, being overtreated, and in an ICU instead of being surrounded by loved ones at home. We can do much better, but to do better (i.e., die peacefully, gently, painlessly, and with life tasks completed) requires planning and forethought.

Talking about death and dying may seem like a challenging conversation, but in our Aging Well meetings, it is fascinating, constructive, and useful.
