Singular Living Not a Cause for Concern
Living alone as we age might not be preferred by many, but isn't as negative as we might think. Read about aging and living alone here and then check out our Geriatrics Forum to learn more.
Rolling with the Punches
Resilience helps us “roll with the punches” and to have a better quality of life. Learn how we can build on our innate resilience and help ourselves age more successfully.
Driving as We Age
Driving is one of the key factors to independence as we age. Since accidents are more likely to be fatal for older drivers, it is important that we seek out the options available to make our driving safer. Find out more keys to safety here.
Volunteering in Later Years
Studies have shown that people who volunteer often feel that they receive more than they give and lead happier, healthier lives. Read about how volunteering can add to our quality of life!
Feeling Low? Oh, No!
Feeling low or depressed means our lives can’t be enjoyed to the fullest and interactions with our friends and family are often negatively affected as well. Depression hits many individuals around the holidays. Learn how to fight it and what to do to help others.
Winter Safety Can Save Your Life
As older adults we tend to produce less body heat and it is harder for us to judge the colder temperatures. We need to prepare for when we will be outdoors in colder weather and when we are driving. This article will give you some great ideas for staying safe in colder climes.
Home Modifications Offer Stability
Home modifications for aging in place (staying in your home in older age) means planning ahead. Studies show that most homes are not designed to accommodate the needs of people over age 65. Learn what to look for and how to make your home more user-friendly as you (and your family members) age.
The Happiness Factor
Happiness increases as we surpass sixty years of age because as we've aged we tend to deal better with negative circumstances than younger folks. Learn how to be proactive in making our lives more enjoyable as we get older and how we naturally become more attuned to having a better life.
Feeling Younger than Our Age
Older persons who feel younger than their actual age experience health benefits far beyond those who “feel their age.” We should think about our approach to aging and realize that "looking" younger isn't the same as "feeling" younger, and feeling younger than our actual age is where it's at!
Investing in Health Pays Off
Being diligent about routine checkups and not letting vanity or reluctance keep us from wearing eyeglasses and hearing aids if we need them are not easy tasks as we age. Learn ways to make health the top priority that it should be and hopefully chuckle along the way!
