What is longevity of life without health? Adults today are looking not only to extend their lives, but to enjoy their extra years. A simplified message for older adults is to follow the ten keys to healthy aging:

  • Prevent bone loss and muscle weakness
  • Control blood pressure
  • Increase physical activity
  • Regulate blood sugar
  • Stop smoking
  • Maintain social contact
  • Participate in annual skin screening for cancer
  • Get regular immunizations
  • Lower cholesterol and combat depression

These strategies can help people take charge of their health and delay or prevent disease and injury as well as speed recovery time. People should seek out places that provide access to resources for social contact, physical activity, transportation and other needs. Making the golden years more golden requires adults to apply some basic keys that will provide enjoyment of those extra years.
