    The Plaza at The Barrington of Carmel Welcomed Wellness Expert and Board Member Dr. David Gobble for recent event

    The Plaza at The Barrington of Carmel, which provides a range of healthcare services within Hamilton County’s new life care senior living community, recently welcomed Dr. David Gobble, Director of the Masterpiece Living® Academy, to share his expertise on maximizing capabilities late in life. For the last 15 years, Gobble has focused his research, writing and speaking on the potential to age well and live a long successful life. The Barrington is the only senior living community in the state of Indiana to offer Masterpiece Living® to its residents, and last year named Gobble to its board of directors. During this most recent event, Gobble discussed “Brain Health: A Critical Investment for a Good Long Life.”

    Gobble has written an aging well column regularly for Wellness Councils of America, and delivered hundreds of presentations about healthy aging to both academic audiences and the public. The last eight years of his academic career he directed the only program in the country that focused on wellness across an individual’s lifespan. Gobble believes it is important to understand, how to maintain as well as improve function in late life.

    “We were so pleased to have Dr. Gobble visit The Barrington community again and share his vast knowledge of the human brain with our residents and staff. His presentation was very engaging and informative for everyone,” said Troy Cannaday, executive director at The Barrington of Carmel. “The overall message behind Masterpiece Living® is so encouraging and empowering as it reminds us all how we can take control over our aging process to live a truly long and enjoyable life.”

    Gobble spoke about the rapidly changing science of brain health and discussed how lifestyle and living location affect the way the brain ages. He believes it is never too late to make lifestyle changes in order to start aging successfully.
