Selecting a New Place to Live
It’s really difficult to think about pulling up stakes and moving to a new location, especially when we are older and planning on “downsizing” and retiring. Learn about the most important factors to consider when making a move and how to "do the research."

Embracing Technology a Positive
Considering older generations did not grow up with computers, we have been more reluctant to embrace new technology,and in fact may be suspicious of it. We continue to lag behind younger Americans in tech adoption. Learn about this phenomenon and why embracing technology is the way to go!

Older Adults and Alcohol
Drinking too much alcohol at any age can cause health problems. Since older adults take more medication as they age and alcohol can affect drug interactions, drinking can be more dangerous for older persons. Learn about the effects of alcohol as we age and what to avoid.

Elder Lawyers a Valuable Resource
Attorneys who work in the field of elder law have knowledge of older adult issues as well as the myths related to competence and aging. Learn about their areas of expertise and when to utilize the legal assistance they can provide.

Taking a Reality Check
Sometimes we get so caught up in our day to day activities (or get stuck and mourn the lack of enjoyable activities) after we retire that we forget to take a reality check on how we are spending our precious time. We can’t change the past but can learn how to make our futures “all they can be.”

Sore Feet Fixes
Many of us have had problems with our feet, but as we get older the problems seem to become more numerous: everything from heel pain to an ingrown toenail. These ailments can affect our mobility and independence so it’s important to learn how to address them soonest.

Aging Vision Loss and Protecting Our Independence
More than 3.3 million Americans age 40 and older have low vision and blindness, but we need to realize that serious vision loss is not inevitable as we age. Learn the warning signs and what we can do to prevent vision problems.

Exercising Safely as We Age
Learn the warning signs while exercising - when pushing too hard and when to call the doctor. We need to be careful and safe while we are making efforts to improve our health.

Readers Weigh In
No matter what kind of concerns we experience as we age, we need to recognize that "we are all in this together." If an issue doesn't affect us directly, it probably has affected a member of our family, a friend or a loved one. Learn what some of our readers have to say!

Phobias in Later Life
Treating phobias in older adults can be somewhat more difficult than treating them in younger people. Learn about phobias in older age and how to approach older persons who have phobias that affect their quality of life.
