The 2nd Annual Speak-Up Please: standup comedy to support aging

The 2nd Annual Speak-Up Please: standup comedy to support aging

November 22, 2019
7:30pm
Pianofight, 144 Taylor Street, San Francisco
Every day, older adults are forced into sacrificing something we all hold dear: choosing where and how to live their lives. Without the information and resources to protect themselves and their future, the disconnects in the nation’s housing, healthcare system, and community supports put many older adults at risk of premature institutionalization.
We have enlisted four of the best Bay Area mature comics to bring the heavy laughs and raise funds to help ensure older adults can choose to continue eating dinner at five for a mad discount, whacking racists with their canes, and making comments about things that are totally inappropriate because no one will stop an eighty-year-old.

From models of delivering healthcare at home to on demand behavioral healthcare, emerging systems of healthcare delivery are changing the experience of clinicians, patients and caregivers. In this forum we are going to explore how these new models work, how they may impact the aging experience and what the learning process may be for all involved.
