Bridging The Generations with Benjamin Surmi

Today’s guest on the podcast, Benjamin Surmi, is a  younger person devoted to helping people grow older with gusto.

His background as an activity director, home repair coordinator, & Lifelong Learning Center Director has given him the tools to create new products, and techniques for empowering people in various stages of life.

We talked about his current work which includes:

  • The new era of technology which combines the physical and the technological world
  • Bridging the generation divide

  • The importance of lifelong learning
