Did you know September is Healthy Aging Month? Did you even know there was such a thing? Their tagline says it all, "because there's lots of living left to do...."
Consider this from Fox News: "In the U.S., centenarians [those 100 years older] are expected to increase from 75,000 to more than 600,000 by midcentury. Those primarily are baby boomers hitting the 100-year mark." So brush up on your grade-school math or get out that trusty calculator to figure out how many more years you could have to live.
If you are like us and nearly all of our senior care clients, we want all those remaining years to be as comfortable and productive as possible. As Carolyn Worthington, editor-in-chief of Healthy Aging Magazine® and executive director of Healthy Aging® states, "We saw a need to draw attention to the myths of aging...it's never too late to get started on something new."
Healthy Aging has 10-tips for making the most of your golden years. One of their suggestions is to get a job.
