Did you ever regret not getting your parent’s or relative’s story or family history?  Meet Nanette Randall, owner of Memoirs by Design.   Her company assists people or companies document their story.  As Nanette explains, a lost story is lost for good.  She strongly encourages all of us to tell our story while we are healthy and can pass on our history to our families.  The holidays are a perfect time to do this.  Nanette gives us some great ideas about how to do this.  Think of it this way; “when you save a story, you leave a legacy”.

Melanie Morgan is our next guest.  She is the Data Analyst for the City of Centennial’s Innovation Team.  Centennial is one of 13 cities in the US to receive a grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies.  Their charge is to imbed innovation in government and come up with what that means.  Melanie’s work on the Innovation team has focused on improving transportation and making it easier to age in the suburbs.  Regarding transportation, Centennial has initiated a training program for seniors to use Lyft and Uber.  They are working in the housing arena to make it easier for seniors to stay in their homes or in their communities if that is a better fit.  The team has listened to seniors and has learned that they are looking for social activities and a comprehensive senior resource center.  To address these issues, they are considering a mobile senior center.
