The Louise Woo Podcast with Stephen Jepson

This is My latest interview with LouiseFalls are the leading cause of death for seniors aged 65+. Of those seniors that survive a fall a majority of them will never live independently. That is a scary statistic that Stephen Jepson decided he would do something about. Stephen is the creator of Never Leave the Playground, where he teaches his philosophy of lifetime activity and play. At 80 years old he can juggle, tight rope walk and ride a unicycle. That's just scratching the surface of what he can do! He believes these activities will change everyone's lives, not just seniors, to live a long, healthy and playful life.
