Healthy Aging

If 60 is the new 50 … what does that make 70 & 80?

Older Canadians are living longer with fewer disabilities than generations before them. 

To maintain good health and quality of life throughout your later years, it is more important than ever to focus on staying healthy and free of injury.

Staying connected with friends and family, keeping active, enjoying healthy eating, and living tobacco free are ways to maintain good health.  With age comes a greater risk for having a fall and a fall in an older adult can be life changing.  Reduce the risk for having a fall by making little changes in and around your home.

It is never too late to make healthier choices. Follow the suggestions below and make the most of your later years.
