My Latest Release
ADDING TIME BACK TO YOUR AGING CLOCK
30 Summers More
As I continue my journey in life, I am confident that there is still a lot of life to live. So much left to see and experience! My ability to live longer is greater than I ever imagined possible. I’ve led a fantastic life and plan on doubling down in my next thirty summers on this planet!
Emmy-nominated co-host of the Emmy award-winning talkshow The Doctors
Forward By Dr. Andrew Ordon
One day when I was taking my usual 20-minute commute to work, I heard four science-based health stories in a row on the radio. One story was about how a group of people with Parkinson’s disease were found to respond favorably to cycling three times a week. Another story was about the reality that many drugs tested on mice don’t work on people. The third story was about the health benefits of marijuana. The final story talked about why lonely people have more severe cold symptoms than others.
Listening to the radio that day I, ironically, realized that I had never consciously applied those lessons to myself. I didn’t think I needed to. As the CEO of Áegis Living, I had held a lifelong obsession with the pursuit of health, both understanding and obtaining it.
But as I moved into my middle-age years, the psychic impact of my constant awareness of aging and death made me intensely more curious about living a good life, and, even more, living the most magnificent life possible.
30 Summers More contains the “lessons of longevity” that I have amassed from a front-line view as the CEO of Áegis Living, combined with the latest health and wellness research on living well as we age. Also, the book outlines what I call the “micro-habits” necessary for living our best lives as we move into our senior years.

A TRUE STORY OF LOVE, DETERMINATION, AND MEMORIES...LOST
My Mother, My Son
My Mother, My Son illustrates the power of love and a cruel twist of fate. A son who came from a struggling family that had little means was able to fulfill his mother’s lifelong dream to be successful, a “big shot” with all the status and trappings that entailed. Little did they know that her dream would end with a disease that had become an integral part of his livelihood.
As I became a successful executive in the senior living industry, my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and became a resident of one of my memory care communities. Even though my life’s work dealt with the elderly and memory loss, I still had to come to terms with the diagnosis and the painful realization that my mother would one day forget who I was and the dreams and memories we shared. This story chronicles the life of my feisty and wildly devoted, single mother, her childhood in India, the memories of a struggling young family and the many life lessons that she taught me along the way. All of the profits from this book are being donated to the Potato Soup Foundation and the Alzheimer's Association.
A Big Life
WISDOM FOR MY GRANDCHILDREN
I developed A big Life as an engaging combination book/game designed to get families talking and pass along wisdom increasingly lost in a digitally reliant world. Having spent my career serving America's aging population, I am in a unique position to reflect on the powerful wisdom of older generations.
A Big Life makes a great gift or addition to any holiday gathering or celebration for those looking to connect with family -- even friends -- in a more satisfying way. With a roll of the dice, participants are directed to specific pages and topics from which to launch a conversation about life experiences, perspective and share words of wisdom. A Big Life can also be read as a book, for a thought provoking reflection of one's own experiences and opinions on a wide range of topics. A Big Life will help you...

Saturdays with GG
A CHILDREN'S BOOK ABOUT BUILDING MEMORIES WITH LOVED ONES EVEN AFTER ALZHEIMER'S
Andre, Sophia and Kennedy have always loved spending Saturdays with their Great Grandma, GG. Her backyard is perfect for adventures, and GG's cookies are the best ever. When GG starts to forget little things like where she put her glasses or to include peanut butter in her peanut butter cookies, the children don't worry. But when GG's memory slips get more serious, and even possibly dangerous, the children have a talk with their grandparents about what's going on with GG.
This book about Alzheimer's disease and dementia shows us that children of all ages can, with the power of love and compassion, continue to build memories with their loved ones even after they begin to forget.
