There are so many steps that we can take from an early age to help extend our lives and to simply make our Golden Years more enjoyable and with better health! Aging in place, and aging gracefully includes making good choices in our earlier years that should continue as we grow older.
Doctors have found that dehydration is one of the most common fluid and electrolyte disturbances among the elderly. Water is crucial to all bodily processes from carrying hormones, disease fighting cells, nutrients and antibodies throughout the body as well as flushing toxins and waste products from the body, ingesting enough is critical to good health. Individuals over age 65, however, find that their thirst diminishes and because of that they don't drink enough. Not drinking enough water can lead to diseases and disorders including kidney stones, hypertension, circulation disorders and common indigestion problems and, as a caregiver, you can see how important it is that your aging relatives are getting enough water in their diets.
Senior Medicare is a great benefit that helps seniors access the healthcare they need, but many people feel overwhelmed when it’s time to choose a plan. With Original Medicare, Medigap, Advantage plans and parts A, B, C, and so on, it all feels like a confusing alphabet soup. The first thing you want to do is get a good understanding of your options, then you can weigh the most important criteria for making the best decision.
Memorial Day is a day to remember those who have died in service to our nation. We owe our veterans such gratitude and honor and want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has, or is currently serving! Without you, our lives could be a lot different!
Baby boomers are learning that growing older is far better than we expected. We are not aging the same way our parents and grandparents did and our quality of life is in many ways the best ever. Always resistive, always resistant, and always resilient, we are thriving on many levels. Turns out, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks.
America's boomers & beyond are living longer more active lives, and have fast become the largest-growing sector of society.

Mother's Day is a time to think about the legacies our mothers and grandmothers pass on. At LifeFone, we thought it would be fun to learn a bit of the history behind celebrating Mother's Day. Many believe that Mother's Day was developed as a commercial holiday by Hallmark or some other company to sell cards, candy, flowers, jewelry, and so on. Or, the belief is that it's a day solely to celebrate the domestic role of women in the home, and with a family surrounding them. However, neither of these perceptions is accurate.
