Exercise Can Save Your Life and Save Your Money!

Also of note: Today, like all ages, many older people can be overweight. Maintaining a healthy weight is a worthy goal, and exercise helps. Even if a person doesn't lose weight, it's good to know that a March 2017 study published by the European Society of Cardiology reported that exercising is even more beneficial than losing weight for obese individuals of every age. However, some older people who are overweight sometimes hesitate to take part in an exercise class, fearing that they will be injured, or unable to keep up, or that they will be embarrassed by their appearance. Today, there are programs especially for overweight people to help them exercise in a positive, safe environment.

Growing Awareness of a Senior Epidemic - Loneliness

April is Volunteer Month—a great time to consider the benefits of volunteer service for seniors!

 Make donating your time and talents part of your plan for healthy aging. Almost everyone has something to offer others. Look for new opportunities, or continue a long-time volunteer job. Even if your health condition changes, you can make adaptations to continue your valuable service. "I have arthritis and I can't drive anymore," reports one senior volunteer. "But I still volunteer at my local hospice in assisting with fundraising activities and also in sharing my skill of playing piano for the patients".  " To see their faces light up as I play music to them leaves me feeling uplifted and having had a worthwhile day".

Keeping Your Memory Sharp

If you’re concerned that you or someone you know has a serious memory problem, talk with your doctor. He or she may be able to diagnose the problem or refer you to a specialist, such as a neurologist or geriatric psychiatrist. Healthcare professionals who specialize in Alzheimer’s and other dementias can recommend ways to manage the problem or suggest treatment or services that might help.
