My Leaders in Elder Care interview with Phil Parker, author of the recently published “Grandpa Does Grandma – the ABCs of Senior Sex“, was a lot of fun. While the title of the book is racey by design, the book gets to the heart of what calls a major problem – the loss of intimacy among seniors.
Phil (Grandpa) and his wife Bonnie (Grandma) are really warm people, and you can tell they have a wonderful relationship. Having read the book, despite some odd looks at a few restaurants, I think you’ll enjoy the interview.

He’s been hired, fired, acquired, merged, purged, downsized, rightsized but never capsized and suddenly he’s a sexy senior!
Phil served his country as a Naval Officer, has socialized at the White House and has been called a world-class photographer. He was a Golden Gloves boxer, a collegiate golfer, and has coached soccer, basketball and Little League baseball. In his spare time he was a volunteer fireman.
Grandpa is an energizing speaker and author who, through his own experiences, shares with his audiences how to discover the possibilities before them and the potential within them.
His first book, “Kiss Yourself Hello! ~ A Journey From A Life of Business to the Business of Life“, encourages individuals to evaluate where they are in their personal and professional lives.
In addition to enjoying life with Grandma, Phil pursues his love of photography through his company “Cheap Shots,” aspires to become an accomplished drummer and loves to travel whenever the opportunity presents itself.
