Safety and Older Age

g
The Use and Abuse of Health Websites and Apps
Since older adults are using the computer more frequently and have more health issues as we age, we need to be aware of the risks of on line health programs and promises. Learn how to use the thousands of health-related websites and store bought applications safely!

What’s Up with Nutrition Drinks?
As we age, nutrition drinks can be the answer to offering us the extra vitamins and minerals we need. However, there are down sides to the drinks, and we need to know how to use them safely. Learn more about nutritional drinks and how to use them wisely as snacks or meal replacements.

Taking the Heat for Eating Meat
Most of us enjoy meat as a regular part of our diet, so it is painful to hear that eating meat is now deemed a health risk. Learn why it is important to cut back, options for making the shift, and which foods are best as replacements.

Staying on Top of Our Healthcare
It is crucial as we get older that we empower ourselves and take charge of our health. Read here why it is important and the ways we can enhance our quality of life by taking stock and taking action.

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!
