My name is Adam Holcroft and I have created this podcast for a few different reasons:
- to bring a conversation about ageing to you. You could be anyone, we are all affected by the ageing process however we don’t all have the same information and we aren’t discussing the best ways to do things. I will use over a decade of experience working with hundreds of health care organisations and my knowledge of IT to bring you views and information that will help you better understand aged care.
- to bring you into the conversation about ageing. You could be anyone, we are all affected by the ageing process and I want to hear about your experiences, share them with others and learn from them.
- to find out what successful ageing is. In 2010, I had a lightbulb moment in which it became clear to me that I had failed to see something obvious and directly in front of me – the reason people need care is because they have a health issue. I myself had let my own health priorities slide out of balance, so at 30 years old and as a new father I chose to begin my own journey learning about diet, martial arts, yoga and strength & fitness. What I have seen in 4 years has convinced me that by learning about better choices, we can create a community where sickness is not automatically associated with ageing and we can take a large burden off the healthcare systems of today and the future.
A huge thank you to all the people that have made this possible, there are a lot of you out there! Family, friends, colleagues, podcasters, all of you are greatly appreciated and always welcome to come and have a chat about ageing with me.
