“Senior Moments” to Premiere in November on PBS Stations Nationwide.
JUNE 2016 – Boynton Beach, Fla. – In her quest to “healthify” the nation, Debra K believes the spa industry plays a vital role in this journey and has valuable stories that need to be told. What better place to begin than where the spa industry started? Debra will join Deborah Szekely at the destination spa she founded with her late husband, Rancho La Puerta, for a shoot that will exclusively be seen on the new show, “Senior Moments.”
The show will air this fall on PBS stations nationwide and is being presented by Kentucky Educational Television (KET). “Senior Moments’” healthy-aging focus is timely as baby boomers continue to hit 65. The older population in 2030 is projected to be twice as large as their counterparts in 2000, growing from 35 million to 72 million and representing nearly 20 percent of the total U.S. population*.
“We have to do something right now to empower and educate our older population to keep them healthy and in their homes for as long as possible,” says Host and Executive Producer Debra K. “’Senior Moments’ will help older adults and their caretakers set a path toward wellness and stop the crisis we are heading toward as our older population pressures our healthcare system.”
Since 2013 when Debra K launched her first show “The Journey into Wellbeing,” she has held the desire to share engaging, educational and inspiring content. “When I began thinking about segments for ‘Senior Moments,’ the story of 94-year-old Deborah Szekely immediately came to mind. I have always held the desire to share her story with a larger audience,” adds Debra K.
The “Senior Moments” crew will also travel to Tennessee and Kentucky.
