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!
Gifts for the Older Set
Buying gifts for older persons requires some original thinking. Some elders say they have everything they need, but there are some cool things out there that even the “please don’t buy me anything” folks might enjoy! As the holidays approach, we all could use some new ideas for gift giving!
Managing Holiday Stress
As we get older, whether we are planning to be all alone for the Holidays or headed into an uncomfortable group situation, there is nothing like being prepared. Learn how stay in a positive frame of mind and take control as the holidays approach.
Making Our Indoors Safer
Taking steps to make our indoors as safe as possible is a smart move as we age. Learn about ways to make our home environments safer and how to help ourselves and others by assessing in-home risks.
Ways to "Lighten Up"
Most of us have too much "stuff" and find it harder and harder to let go of it as we age. These are things we worked hard for and we keep them whether we are using them or not, causing clutter and a disorganized atmosphere. Read and learn about ways to make letting go much easier.
Planning for Final Years
Many of us avoid planning for our final years. Waiting and deferring to others can be a mistake, because it is just as crucial that we have peace of mind and a good quality of life in our final years as at any other time in our lives. Learn what to do to prepare and take charge!
