Baby boomer Ralph Delia grew up in Lindenhurst, New York, surrounded by cousins in a tight-knit Italian family. His parents lived life to the fullest, and didn’t dwell on their mortality—rarely going to the doctor, stubbornly enduring ailments. So when his father received a life-shattering medical diagnosis at age ninety, Ralph scrambled to take charge of his dad’s healthcare in a way he hadn’t anticipated. In this episode we hear how his experience of caring for both parents affected the way Ralph handles his own healthcare needs, how he and his wife are changing their lives to feel more connected to people they love, and how living in Florida has given Ralph a unique perspective on aging.
