This month of observance for healthy aging is held annually to focus attention on the positive side of aging. The mission of this annual observance is to promote the idea that each individual is personally responsible for their own health in every area – physical, mental, social and financial.
Every person who continues to add days, weeks and years onto their lifetime is going to age anyway. In that case, wouldn’t you rather age in a healthy way? Most people would answer with a resounding, “yes!”
The interest in healthy aging can be adopted by you and your elderly loved one. There are some strategies you can even work on together, like healthier eating and more physical exercise. A home care provider can also assist your loved one in making healthier meals and taking them to exercise class.
